All five players, plus their head coach, are remaining together. They are joined by Viktor " victorsoN " Kovacs as the team's analyst and coach, Gabor " vakesz " Pinkova as team manager, and Tim "Timmy" Buysee as the team's general manager.
"[The team] has to learn a lot as well now that they can focus on playing and practicing full time with a proper salary for each person on the team," vakesz said. "And they don't have to focus on other unimportant stuff."
HEET is currently receiving funding from some investors and a partnership with streamheroes.gg. While the organization will be Valorant-only for the time being, they eventually plan to expand into other games, according to vakesz.
need more DM had been a staple in European competition dating back to the game's beta. Despite flirting with inclusion in Europe's upper echelon from the get-go, often fighting tooth and nail with the region's best teams, neither the team nor an individual player from the team has ever been signed by an organization in Valorant. Prior to the formation of HEET, all players on the team were free agents who played without salaries.
The team's most recent move before this announcement was the addition of ex-Hellraisers CS:GO player Bence " DeadFox " Böröcz earlier this month who took the place of Norbert " tigene " Pásztor, an original member of the roster.
The organization made the decision to move away from their long-standing need more DM name because some thought it was too long and others didn't even use the full name. "HEET came up during a discussion among all of us reading all the suggestions of the fans on Twitter," vakesz explained.
HEET will make their debut in the upcoming Valorant Champions Tour later this month. That tournament will also mark DeadFox's first since switching to Valorant from CS.
