UPDATE: A previous version of the article incorrectly stated that the roster would be pulling out of MEL Premiership Season 3. The article has been amended to more accurately reflect the roster's status in the league.
The latest DarkZero roster was finalized in late April after the organization parted ways with a host of players in early February, leaving longtime member Kyle "ScrewFace" Jensen as the centerpiece of the team's rebuild going forward. He has been with DarkZero since the organization signed the Kooky Koalas Kooky Koalas Inactive squad nearly a year ago alongside Yannick "KOLER" Blanchette, Andy "Andersin" Collins, Nick "Harmon" Harmon, and Adam "Ange" Milian.
This announcement marks the fourth confirmed departure from competitive Valorant this week. On Wednesday, both Akrew Akrew Inactive and NYFU NYFU Inactive revealed that they would be splitting with their roster amid their rejections from the 2023 franchised league. Just today, Complexity Complexity Inactive also announced that they would be parting with their main roster but continuing to support their Game Changers roster.
With DarkZero's exit from Valorant, the roster that is currently competing third season of the MEL Premiership will continue forward under a free agent name. The team was scheduled to take on Knights Academy Knights Academy North America Rank #51 yesterday, July 21, and currently has no definitive start date. The next match the team is set to take part in is their match against Built By Gamers Academy Built By Gamers Academy North America Rank #48 next week, on the 28th.
