Disguised Disguised North America Rank #9 steel Joshua Nissan Genghsta Amgalan Nemekhbayar XXiF Damion Cook clear Joseph Allen have announced the departure of Drake "Exalt" Branly from the team's roster, marking the first major roster change of the influencer-sponsored North American Challengers team. Exalt has announced that he has been released as an unrestricted free agent.
Thank you, Exalt.
As one of the founding members of the Disguised core, the 23-year-old initiator brought his Valorant Beta experience to the team, having a tenured history across multiple mixes, most notably Knights and Knights Academy — of which three Disguised members were previously contracted with.
In a follow-up tweet, it was announced their registered substitute player Chris "riku" Piasecki will play for the remainder of the North American split.
A fellow alumni of Knights Academy, riku has been hopping between free-agent mixes since the latter half of 2022 — with one of them clashing with Disguised in a Nerd Street qualifier — before becoming Disguised's 6th man.
Disguised are currently 2-2 in Group B of the first NA Challengers Split, with their qualification to the Mid-Season Face Off seemingly guaranteed. With only a handful of weeks to prepare, the Face Off will be Disguised's first major bracket, as the roster vies for a spot in Ascension later this year.
