Former CS:GO pro, Jampii, who filed a lawsuit against Valve is officially switching to VALORANT.
Elias “Jamppi” Olkkonen is a Finnish CS:GO professional player playing for the team ENCE. One of Jampii’s CS:GO accounts was VAC banned back in 2019, which he claimed to have sold to someone else. VALVE has a policy where any pro players who receive a VAC ban on any account cannot participate in any VALVE events.
Then, Jampii filed a lawsuit against VALVE GMBH, which ultimately failed because the subsidiary did not even exist during the VAC ban incident. That’s why the court did not consider Jampii to be a consumer and stated that there is no contract between them.
Furthermore, according to a Finnish newspaper, Ilta-Sanomat, ENCE is thinking about changing their CS:GO roster and leaving Jampii out. Considering all these things, Jampii recently revealed a video where he announced his official switch to VALORANT.
Jampii’s Official Announcement
In the 2:09-second video shared on Jampii’s official Twitter account, we get the announcement of his switch to VALORANT. In the video, Jampii says, “First of all, I got benched in ENCE. These kinds of things happen all the time in Esports. Nothing I can basically do about it.”
Then, he wished the best of luck to the new ENCE team and hoped that they would succeed. Later in the video, he disclosed his future plans. He said, “I will be switching to VALORANT.” Jampii is also interested in joining VALORANT Esports teams and will be streaming soon, where he will answer questions. You can watch the full video below.
