stellar has turned his attention to VALORANT like many players in recent months
Brenden "stellar" McGrath has retired from CS:GO and parted ways with AA to focus on VALORANT, the player has confirmed with Dust2.us.
stellar's most recent series in CS:GO was at the start of July in Mythic Invite League, where AA were eliminated following a 2-1 loss to oNe. His focus in recent months has been in VALORANT playing for Mixup, a lineup consisting of former CS:GO players including the likes of Alex "aproto" Protopapas, Lucas "Fiziq" Blow, and Brady "thief" Dever. With this lineup stellar has enjoyed modest success, winning Nerd Street Gamers Open 13 at the start of July.
In CS:GO, stellar's career notably included a second place finish at Fragadelphia 14 with Divine, and two ESEA MDL Global Challenges appearances with Vireo.pro and Party Astronauts.
Without stellar, AA are now:
- Robert "robby" Brown
- Damian "droid" Boulware
- Matthew "nero" Seymour
- Nick "zeptic" Kaoud
AA will be looking to find a new fifth ahead of the start of ESEA MDL Season 35 on August 31st.
