A noteworthy presence in the Tier 2 NA scene, Akrew entered 2022 by racking up a boast-worthy win streak in NSG and Knights Gauntlet tournaments prior to the commencement of NA Stage 1: Challengers. Eager to impress, the team entered the first stage of the 2022 VCT with high hopes, but left disappointed and defeated after being eliminated by The Guard The Guard North America Rank # and Built By Gamers Built By Gamers Inactive in both qualifier events respectively.
From there, Akrew continued their participation outside the VCT in the NSG Summer Championship, Knights Monthly Gauntlet: April, and Boom TV Proving Grounds tournaments, all while focusing on roster improvement as they added former FaZe Clan FaZe Clan North America Rank #6 member Zachary "ZachaREEE" Lombardo to the roster following the departure of Corbin "C0M" Lee to Evil Geniuses Evil Geniuses North America Rank #27 .
jovahnii joins Akrew in place of Eric "Kanpeki" Xu, who recently departed the roster to join Sentinels Sentinels North America Rank #1 . jovahnii previously represented Cosmic Divide Cosmic Divide North America Rank #28 , a long-standing North American roster that frequently attended minor tournaments, but seldom finished among the top contenders. After Kanpeki's buyout, jovahnii's spot on Akrew's roster was finalized.
Akrew's next appearance will be in the upcoming NA Stage 2: Challengers open qualifiers, where they are set to face a handful of North America's finest rosters.
