Spanish esports organization MAD Lions has announced their entry into VALORANT by buying out the TENSTAR roster. According to initial rumors, the British club was experiencing financial difficulties, which is why they decided to part ways with their squad.
The TENSTAR roster was formed in May last year with minor changes. During this time, the British team became the winner of ESL VALORANT UK&I Skirmish, and also made it to the top three at LVP - Rising Series #3, LVP - Rising Series #4 and VRL 2022 Northern Europe: Polaris Stage 1.
As a substitute player, the Spanish club signed Apyr, who was previously part of Monkey Momentum. Spin will continue to coach the teams. BigTime, who previously worked as an analyst at The Goose House, is called to help him in the coaching field.
The next tournament for MAD Lions will be VALORANT Regional Leagues 2022 Northern Europe: Polaris Stage 2, which will be held online from May 15 to July 3.
From now on, the composition of MAD Lions by VALORANT is as follows:
- Apyr (bench).
- Spin (head coach).
- BigTime (analyst).
