One Breath Gaming has announced its separation from Lightning. The 18-year-old player and the British esports organization have come together in their interests, deciding to go their separate ways. The future of the Russian is still unknown.
Lightning started his career at VALORANT in April, when, together with the EELROGI team, he took part in the qualification for the VALORANT Clutch Series Vol. 1. However, after being 18 years old, the player tried his hand at different teams, including FASTREGNAME and DPE. Until October, Lightning remained without a full-fledged contract, while managing to win at all sorts of tournaments and show matches.
Already at the end of October he was played for THEX, with which he easily qualified for First Strike CIS. However, before the tournament itself, the roster was bought by One Breath Gaming, under whose tag Lightning and the rest of the team took only 5-8 places in the championship.
The beginning of 2021 can be credited to One Breath Gaming, as the team gained attention thanks to victories in VCT 2021: CIS Stage 1 Challengers 1 and VCT 2021: CIS Stage 1 Challengers 2. However, at VCT 2021: CIS The Stage 1 Masters team did not manage to repeat their success, finishing their performances only on the 5th-6th place.
From now on, the roster of One Breath Gaming is as follows:
