Adam “ec1s” Eccles joins NIP’s VALORANT roster after parting ways with NoPoaching.
The 21-year-old professional VALORANT player ec1s has found a new home. He started off his journey with the roster of fish123. Soon, Team Liquid acquired the roster and ventured into the competitive VALORANT scene of Europe. However, things didn’t favor much for ec1s or his team in First Strike.
In the last week of February, Team Liquid decided to remove ec1s from their VALORANT roster. Adam continued to stream on Twitch as a part of Team Liquid till May 10th. The fallen CSGO prodigy Jamppi was flown in as a replacement for the roster. Upon the departure of ec1s, Team Liquid slowly started to head in their desired direction.
Earlier on Twitter, Ninjas in Pyjamas announced the acquisition of ec1s. During his time in fish123 and Team Liquid, ec1s played the role of IGL. It’s unclear whether he is going to stick to the IGL role in NIP too. Regardless of his role, ec1s offers a huge amount of experience and deep knowledge about the European VALORANT scene.
According to Ninjas in Pyjamas, their VALORANT roster is now in Serbia to attend a bootcamp. It’s quite evident that the Swedish eSports organization is aiming to secure a spot in the Berlin Major. VCT Stage 3 Challengers 2 will kick off on July 28th. If Ninjas in Pyjamas makes it to the Closed Qualifier of Challengers 2, there is a huge chance that they might book their seats for the Stage 3 Masters.
