NiP has completed its VALORANT roster with three new players. CREA, HyP, and Fearoth are joining RHYME and luckeRRR in the starting lineup, the organization announced today.

Rhyme and LuckeRRR were signed in June when NiP decided to take a different approach with its VALORANT roster. The organization initially used its Paladins’ lineup as the first iteration of its VALORANT roster. But NiP ultimately decided to part ways and focus on a new team centered around two former CS:GO players.

The three new additions to the team are talented players with a diverse history. HyP is a former Overwatch pro who most recently played for the Paris Eternal. He also competed with Team France at the Overwatch World Cup in 2019, helping them secure a fourth-place finish. 

CREA and Fearoth are both former Counter-Strike players who have already proven themselves as talented VALORANT competitors. They’ve won several online VALORANT tournaments and have had little trouble transferring their skills to a new game. 

Several organizations have already established their VALORANT lineups. 100 Thieves revealed its full roster led by Hiko last month and Envy unveiled its team, which is comprised of the former Together We Are Terrific lineup. 

The new NiP lineup will compete in the WePlay! Invitational tomorrow. They’ll face forZe in their first match.
