M80 M80 North America Rank #4 zander Alexander Dituri NiSMO Marc-Andre Tayar koalanoob Gianfranco Potestio neT Michael Bernet BcJ Brendan Jensen have announced that in-game leader Nick "nitr0" Cannella will take a step back from the active roster while Michael "neT" Bernet steps in for the foreseeable future. This roster change comes five months after the organization acquired the FPS veteran to complete their Challengers roster.

After dominating the competition in the earlier stages of Valorant's release, nitr0 temporarily departed the scene to pursue an opportunity in the form of Team Liquid Team Liquid Europe Rank #24 Jamppi Elias Olkkonen nAts Ayaz Akhmetshin Enzo Enzo Mestari Mistic James Orfila Keiko Georgio Sanassy 's Counter Strike: Global Offensive division. Five months ago in January, Captain America returned to Valorant and signed with Ascension runner-ups M80 to compete in Challengers.

After two top-four finishes at both Stage 1 and the Mid-Season Cup, nitr0 has stepped down from the active roster and repositioned himself on the bench while the organization continues their Challengers run. M80 still have a good amount of remaining Stage 2 matches to be played with neT.

Once a part of the storied roster that won the first-ever Americas Ascension, neT's debut in Tier 1 under G2 Esports G2 Esports North America Rank #5 icy Jacob Lange trent Trent Cairns valyn Jacob Batio JonahP Jonah Pulice leaf Nathan Orf was short-lived. The former core of The Guard The Guard Inactive JonahP Jonah Pulice trent Trent Cairns neT Michael Bernet valyn Jacob Batio tex Ian Botsch put up a good fight against their regional competition, but still struggled to the point of failing to qualify for international events.

After missing out on Masters Madrid, G2 opted to bid farewell to neT and signed Jacob "icy" Lange in his place, leaving the Sentinel player without a team to represent as competition resumed throughout the VCT.

Despite their results, M80 seem to be slightly out of form compared to their performances last year. However, the team is still very much in contention to snag an appearance at 2024's Americas Ascension should they slightly improve their performance. The new iteration of the roster will debut today at 7 EST against Blinn Blinn North America Rank #10 mikeE Okeanos Anthony Nguyen monSi Ludovic Lefebvre Teague Teague Morgan Spaz Adam Laamoumi for their Week 2 match.
