Talon Esports, a Thailand-based professional Valorant team has finally decided to reveal its roster. As is customary with all partners, the primary aim is to compete in the APAC region and spread their influence. While this team might be relatively unknown in Valorant, their constant presence in DOTA 2 and similar games has attracted interest from fans globally.

  • Panyawat “sushiboys” Subsiriroj
  • Itthirit “foxz” Ngamsaard
  • Thanamethk “crws” Mahatthananuyut
  • Patiphan “Patiphan” Chaiwong
  • Apiwat “GarnetS” Apiraksukumal
  • Jittana “JitboyS” Nokngam

Crws, along with Sushiboys and foxz have been direct intakes from XERXIA after their excellent performances last season. However, since XERXIA was unable to secure a spot in the VCT partnership program for the current season, it became easier for Talon Esports to poach talent from these teams.

The three new acquisitions are rumored to be extremely flexible in picking roles,  playing from sentinels to duelists as their teams require. Added to it is that FOXZ was the IGL in his former team and will be expected to bring his leadership into this new roster as well.

Patiphan has been a surprising addition, more so because until very recently he used to be an overwatch pro. His return from retirement has sparked much controversy among the fans. Nevertheless, his partnership with GarnetS has the potential to completely change this team. Talon is not excepted to make drastic changes in their lineup, given that these players are more than ever likely to deliver the trophy.
