FaZe Clan on its twitter has announced about the addition of JasonR to the team’s Professional Valorant division who will also take the role of anchoring for the same.
After retiring from CS:GO in 2017, Jason “jasonR” Ruchelski had been streaming the same on his Twitch along with a plethora of games before he decided to participate in Riot Games’ first-person tactical shooter title, VALORANT. The 25yo Canadian has played CS:GO competitively since 2015 making his debut for affinity Esports and is now the one among those Ex-CSGO Professionals who have eventually made the switch to VALORANT and been signed by some prestigious organizations.
The last time we had witnessed Jason playing competitively was when he played under the banner of OpTic gaming as a stand-in and an in game leader as well where he did help the latter to secure a third spot at Beyond the Summit’s inaugural cs_summit 1 tournament after being denied a spot in the finals by Gambit gaming led by Mihail ‘Dosia’ Stolyarov and his troops. This was followed by the event where he eventually stepped down from the roster thus making way for James “hazed” Cobb into the team after he felt his streaming presence might hit a barrier due to his travel schedules with the team.
With the signing of jasonR, FaZe Clan has finally laid its roots into the professional scene of Valorant following the steps of many prestigious organizations like Cloud9, 100 Thieves and G2 Esports.
