One of the most accomplished players in the game's history, cNed returns to a Turkish organization for the first time in three years.
First beginning his career on BBL Esports BBL Esports Europe Rank #44 and later joining orgless team nolpenki nolpenki Inactive , he found limited success in 2020. For 2021, he was signed by Raise Your Edge Raise Your Edge Inactive (currently Acend Acend Europe Rank #3 ) for the beginning of the Valorant Champions Tour. With Acend, he would win the first European Masters event and Champions 2021.
The next two years would be less successful. In 2022, cNed and Acend failed to qualify for an single international tournament. In 2023, after signing with Natus Vincere Natus Vincere Europe Rank #6 , he placed top four at LOCK//IN. His team qualified to Masters Tokyo and Champions, but went out in groups on both occasions.
On the other hand, when considering pre-season expectations, FUT performed significantly better than NAVI in 2023. The Turkish team defeated cNed in the EMEA playoffs, and placed top eight in Champions, losing to three of the top four teams at the event.
With this move they look to continue their momentum and further improve their potential, all while staying true to their Turkish identity.
