Team Heretics Team Heretics Europe Rank #165 have signed Dominykas "MiniBoo" Lukaševičius, Mert "Wo0t" Alkan, and Enes "RieNs" Ecirli. Following Oscar "Mixwell" Cañellas's retirement two days ago, the roster has retained Ričardas "Boo" Lukaševičius and Benjy "benjyfishy" David Fish.
MiniBoo, the younger brother of Boo, has been part of the EMEA Challengers scene since 2021. He recently played for Case Esports Case Esports Europe Rank #54 during their VCL Spain campaign. CASE dominated their region, qualifying for VCT EMEA Ascension by winning Split 2. However, the roster did not make the playoffs, ultimately ending their year.
Wo0t and RieNs, two prominent Turkish prospects, played for Fire Flux Esports Fire Flux Esports Europe Rank #11 and S2G Esports S2G Esports Europe Rank #10 , respectively. In 2022, Fire Flux were considered a solid Turkish roster, placing top four in VCL Turkey: Split 1. S2G quickly made their rise, qualifying for EMEA Ascension play-ins, while Fire Flux placed outside of the top four in Split 2. S2G came close to an Ascension appearance but lost to FOKUS FOKUS Europe Rank #9 in the finals of play-ins.
Team Heretics' tenure in Valorant began in 2020 but found limited success. After getting accepted to the EMEA partnership league in 2023, Team Heretics signed a new roster — led by Boo as IGL. However, after a first-round exit at LOCK//IN, Heretics continued to have middling results, having not qualified for playoffs. Despite picking up benjyfishy before the EMEA LCQ, Heretics ended their year with a top-eight placement and parted with most of the roster.
Team Heretics are set to debut in the Red Bull Home Ground: EMEA Qualifier.
