The roster of LDM Esports LDM Esports Inactive has parted ways with the organization after managerial turmoil rendered the team incapable of competing in Stage 2: Challengers 1 of VCT. The team will play under the name ex-LDM Esports in the interim.
The team has been one of Latin America's top performing rosters for the latter past of 2020, netting top 4 finishes in every tournament they've entered since First Strike Latin America North, where they finished 3rd after a loss to Infinity Esports.
Following First Strike, the team's next three tournament appearances would result in second place finishes. The tournaments were the TodosGamers Valorant Masters League, No Tilt Cup Latin America North, and Valorant Defenders LAN respectively.
In Champions Tour Latin America North competition, the team soared to new heights, finishing second place in Stage 1 Challengers 1 and first place in Stage 1 Challengers 2. In the Stage 1 Masters main event, the team would carry their momentum from Challengers 2 and secure first place with a 3-2 victory over Lazer.
Yesterday, the team withdrew from the remainder of Stage 2: Challengers 1 due to circumstances surrounding the organization's ex-management. LDM announced the departure of Ezio, then-CEO, after allegations emerged of missed payments owed to multiple parties. Specifically, the failure to meet financial obligations led the team to be both without PCs and a physical venue to live and compete from. Misrra, owner and COO of the organization, released a video further explaining the situation.
The team is currently sheltering in the residence of one of the players, Sh0ckwave .
