Ange and riku join anger and da_bears on Rise Nation
Chris "riku" Piasecki and Adam "Ange" Milian have joined Rise Nation's VALORANT roster. The pair come in to replace Justin "Ksiaze" Goszczynski, who left for Luminosity, and Rahmin "ShoukR" Shoukoohi, who parted ways with the team two days before Ange and riku were announced.
riku most recently helped CLG Red maintain their league spot in ESEA Advanced Season 34, playing four matches following the departure of Benita "bENITA" Novshadian to help them finish 7-9 and avoid relegation to ESEA Main. He also stood in for ex-Morning Light in the DreamHack Open Summer open qualifiers before making the switch to VALORANT in early August.
Ange played for Thunder Logic for nearly a year during his CS:GO days and was a part of the team that qualified for ESEA MDL Season 31 through ESEA Season 30 Relegation. In VALORANT, he was part of the Underrated squad that trialed Jason "neptune" Tran and won the $7,500 Pittsburgh Knights VALORANT Rumble event on August 1st.
Rise Nation VALORANT are now:
- Todd "anger" Williams
- Corey "ChurmZ" Koch
- Adam "Spirit" Wills
- Chris "riku" Piasecki
- Adam "Ange" Milian
- Erik "da_bears" Stromberg (Coach)
The team are currently 2-0 in the group stage of 30Bomb: Invitational #2 and are awaiting their opponent for the quarterfinals of the $3,000 event.
