Team Heretics enters Valorant esports by signing loWel, pAura
Spanish esports organization Team Heretics has announced the signings of Christian "loWel" Garcia Antoran and Melih "pAura" Karaduran. The duo are the first members of its new Valorant lineup.
This will not be either players' first foray into Valorant, as the duo played together under the Team Inferno banner in August. Both players played just two games with Inferno, losing to Ninjas in Pyjamas and Giants Gaming at LVL Clash 2.

In his interview with Heretics, loWel revealed that although he thinks CSGO and Valorant are very similar, but he still has a way to go. The biggest challenge for him are the abilities of the agents.
pAura is a player still trying to make a name for himself and although Team Inferno failed to deliver, the Turkish player still cemented himself as one of the best Cyphers Europe has to offer.
Apart from the two player acquisitions, Heretics also announced the signing Alejandro "Black" García as a brand ambassador and content creator. Best known for his CSGO streams, the Spaniard has recently made the switch to Valorant.
The organization has yet to announce the rest of its roster, but rumors suggest that loWel will be joined by another of theirs former Inferno teammate, Dustyn "nieSoW" Durnas.
