Ghost Gaming player Will “dazzLe” Loafman and free agent Joseph “ban” Seungmin Oh are close to joining Luminosity Gaming’s VALORANT roster, sources told Upcomer on June 22.
While the move for dazzLe has been up in the air for a few weeks, it looks like the organizations reached an agreement for the player. Ban, who most recently played for Team Serenity, has yet to play at the professional level.
Ghost Gaming players to join Luminosity roster?
DazzLe has not played with Ghost Gaming recently. The organization has begun trialling replacements, according to multiple sources. These trials will continue for the next few days.
Luminosity Gaming and Ghost Gaming are set to compete in the NA VALORANT Champions Tour Stage 3 Challengers Open Qualifier 1, beginning on July 1. However, it’s unclear whether the moves will occur in time for the event.
Luminosity has come under further pressure with the recent wrist injury of Kaleb “moose” Jayne. The organization could field another player as his temporary replacement, according to multiple sources.
The 25-year-old dazzLe has played with Ghost since the organization first entered VALORANT in January of 2021. Previously, he’d made a name for himself in CS:GO. He was most known for his time with eUnited from 2018-19, earning himself a third place finish at MSI Gaming Arena in September of 2019.
Ban, on the other hand, has played in multiple VALORANT events at the semi-professional level. He, alongside “Squirtle Squad,” finished in the top eight of the Nerd Street Gamers: Summer Championship Monthly in April. Under Team Serenity, ban finished in first place at the MSI Gaming Arena Open #6 in March. He’s competed semi-professionally since November of 2020.
If dazzLe and ban join Luminosity, the organization would field the following roster:
- Alex “aproto” Protopapas
- Diondre “YaBoiDre” Bond
