We are delighted to announce the newest addition to round our roster for CGN Youngstars.

After the departure of Gustav “Guslump” Witt, who decided to leave esports to focus solely on his education. Gustav was an integral part of CGN Youngstars for many months and both players and staff will miss him.

During the last two splits, we experimented with a six-man roster. Our experience with the rotational system within the team was overwhelming positive as it gave the players time to also focus on their school tasks. In order to maintain this, we required a new addition to the team. In the past weeks, we trialed many of the top performers of the last ProjectV split. A couple of players had the chance to prove themselves over the course of several weeks in order to become a part of CGN Youngstars. Naturally, we had a few names in mind that managed to impress us in the past and that we felt confident would be a good fit.

After playing with all candidates for a while, we realised that one player managed to impress us with his will to learn and to grow everyday. On the server he showed us that he put his teammates first and his stats second. After careful consideration we decided to make our team even younger by adding none-other than 16 year old former VCTRY player - Devran “Dev” Albayrak.

Dev is a very young player with a difficult task in front of him, but under the guidance of our team captain Leon “Faceroll” Grudnowski and our coaches Sebe and Kapio, we believe that he can slowly close to gap towards our more experienced Youngstars players and become an integral part of CGN Youngstars. Dev already applied to join Youngstars last December, where he managed to reach the second stage of the trials and a top 15 spot (out of over 100 applicants). In the past months he improved significantly and proved, that he is eager to join Youngstars to prove himself.

VALORANT is a fast-paced competitive & tactical first person shooter, involving two teams of 5 players each. The first team that manages to win 13 in-game rounds, wins. This means that a game of Valorant can take up to 25 rounds. Players can choose their unique in-game characters, which are called agents, at the start of the game and buy different weapons at the start of each round. When a player dies, they will not respawn until the next round starts. This makes VALORANT a game in which even the smallest decision counts: good reaction times, aiming skills and knowledge are all key elements required to master VALORANT on a competitive level.
