Chakalaka were a relatively unknown team until VCT Stage 1: Challengers 2, when they took down unsigned unsigned Inactive and HEET HEET Europe Rank #17 before dropping to Team Heretics Team Heretics Europe Rank #3 in a hotly-contested Bo3. They followed their Challengers 2 run with a top-16 showing in Challengers 3 before being stopped by Entropiq Entropiq Europe Rank #28 . The team also obtained a slew of first-place-finishes in minor regional tournaments, particularly in the Polish scene, although their success in pan-European competition has been mixed.
Poland has given Valorant great talents, as seen in Ballista Ballista Europe Rank #44 and players such as Patryk "starxo" Kopczynski and Patryk "paTiTek" Fabrowski. Under Illuminar's banner, Chakalaka too hopes to cement their place as one of Poland's best.
