Less than half a day after Nabil 'Nivera' Benrlitom left the esports organization Team Vitality, an interesting new detail about his esports future came to light - Nabil Benrlitom moved to Valorant. Nabil decided not to postpone his career as a professional computer game player, but changed his discipline. Now he will play hard at Valorant, and in order for him to have a good incentive to improve himself, Team Liquid decided to bring the young talent to their club. Nivera, of course, did not refuse such an offer due to the fact that the organization is very solid, and under its banner is Nibil's older brother, Adil 'ScreaM' Benrlit.
ScreaM is a legendary CS: GO player who has made almost $ 250,000 in his 10-year career in the shooter from Valve. On account of his titles, including the title of champion at the Esports Championship Series Season 1 - Finals, DreamHack Open Atlanta 2017, the silver medalist of StarLadder i-League StarSeries Season 2 and others. The Belgian was one of the undisputed kings in terms of the total number of kills and kills made to the head, and his performance was an example for many CS: GO players who started their careers in the middle of the second decade of the 21st century.
Nabil has always stated that he does not want to remain in the shadow of his older brother and be known to the industry not only as the younger brother of Adil Benrlitom, but the 20-year-old player will still cooperate with ScreaM.
In the squad, Nabil took the place of James 'Kryptix' Affleck, and the roster, in addition to the Benrlit brothers, will now include such players as Dom 'soulcas' Sulkas, Travis 'L1NK' Mendoza and Elias 'Jamppi' Olkkonnen. The latter was also once a famous CS: GO player.
The roster, which was before the arrival of Nivera, was completed in February this year. The team managed to perform at several major championships and win prizes. The most significant achievements for them are the victory at the VCT 2021: EMEA Stage 2 Challengers Finals, as well as the second place at the VCT 2021: Stage 2 Masters - Reykjavík. The team received cash prizes of $ 42,094 and $ 60,000 for the above trophies.
It is not clear at the moment how James 'Kryptix' Affleck, who left the starting roster, will do it. According to the official announcement, Kryptix left the team for personal reasons and will remain inactive for Team Liquid for now.
