ESportsConnected Borrowed K1Ng from Vision Strikers
Vision Strikers is taking a new direction in 2022. The Vision Strikers’ player was part of a highly successful six-man lineup that dominated throughout 2021 and achieved VALORANT‘s first world championship. After falling in a decisive match versus Cloud9 Blue of North America, the team failed to advance past the group stage at the end-of-year event.
K1Ng had been sharing his role on the team with former NUTURN Gaming player Kim “Lakia” Jong-min, who signed with Vision Strikers in July 2021. He took the lion’s share of the Sentinel role with Lakia subbing in occasionally on maps like Icebox.
Vision Strikers now appears to be putting its money on Lakia in 2022 with k1Ng going elsewhere for the foreseeable future. He’s expected to play on loan for EsportsConnected in VCT Korea: Challengers One, according to a post on social media.
Vision Strikers will presumably weigh its options and decide if it will recall k1Ng at a later date.
EsportsConnected’s VALORANT roster consists of k1Ng, former F4Q player Kim “GodDead” Sung-sin, and former Cloud9 Korea and Lag Gaming player Yoo “Moothie” Seung-woo.
The newly formed team will be led by former NUTURN player Jung “peri” Bum-gi, who will be taking up a coaching role alongside former NUTURN head coach Jeong “Jaemin” Jae-min.
VCT 2022 Korea kicks off in February next year with Challengers One.
