Connor, Swansea University

Highest Rank: Immortal 3
Current Rank: Diamond 3 
Top 3 Agents:
Raze, Breach, Chamber

Why should you be chosen to represent your region?
Since a young age I've attended LANs for CSGO such as EpicLan and have gained a lot of experience before moving over to Valorant. I started playing in the Beta and reached Immortal. I've always been involved and aimed to get at least Immortal every act. In my time playing CSGO I've always had a very strong IGL role and this has remained true today in Valorant. On many occasions I was IGL for Swansea Academy, showing very strong results through the splits. I am a very versatile player with my agent selections and am very fast at adapting strategies and making round saving decisions. I believe I should be picked because for years I've had the hunger to compete at the top level in whatever role possible. I am at my best when the stakes are high and the passion is at its peak. I want to represent my region because I believe that I can offer it a direction and a team worthy of upholding itself at the top level. With this said, I will do my best and put my all into any position necessary of me.

Marcos, Queen's University Belfast

Highest Rank: Immortal 2
Current Rank: Ascendant 2 
Top 3 Agents:
Viper, Reyna, Chamber

Why should you be chosen to represent your region?
I think I should be chosen to represent my region as I have experience for both NSE and NUEL competitions as a university student. I'm an ex-CSGO player and started playing Valorant when the beta version had just came out. I started playing for the QUB Omega Valorant Team at Winter 2021 and helped to the best of my ability to reach Top 34 in NUEL. I decided to take the role as Team Captain this year and we played the NSE Spring tournament. We were placed Division 1 (Top 21) which was the first to bring for our University. Lastly, this summer league I also helped bring the team to Top 16. This will be a great opportunity for me to have and will help me build my skills and knowledge in Valorant and maybe play in Professional games in the future. I'm here to win.

I’d love the opportunity to play in this tournament, as any excuse to play Valorant I’m always up for it (even if ranked is sometimes incredibly frustrating). I have really enjoyed playing in my first NSE tournaments this year and look forward to playing in more in the future!

As a member of QUB Omega, we fought hard in our games to win and be the best team that is representing Northern Ireland and Ireland as a whole. We have obtained Division 1 in the Spring split of 2022 and Division 2 in the Summer Series.

I am the controller main for Swansea Academy. I have won NUEL, UKV and came 3rd in NSE.
