Luminosity Luminosity North America Rank #18 has announced the team is splitting with two of their longest-rostered players, Diondre "YaBoiDre" Bond and Alex "aproto" Protopapas. Both players became inactive on the LG roster toward the end of 2021, following LG's elimination from the VCT.
aproto first joined Luminosity as part of the organization's original Valorant roster alongside his teammates on the MIXUP MIXUP Inactive roster. He became one of the team's core three players while the organization tinkered with the final two it needed to compete with North America's best teams.
Luminosity found that pair in February 2021 when it brought in YaBoiDre and Kaleb "moose" Jayne. Immediately, the team soared to new heights, finishing third in its first two Challengers events of the year and in the top six in Masters 1.
But Luminosity once again began making changes as the roster failed to find the same level of success in the latter stages of the year. The organization benched two of its original core three in late May, and made a few more changes to fill out its roster afterwards.
LG will need to add two more players before the start of the 2022 VCT season.
