North American organization FaZe Clan has practiced with four new players in a new batch of trials for its VALORANT roster, multiple sources told Upcomer.
The team has recently practiced without Zachary “ZachaREEE” Lombardo, who will explore his options and trial for other teams, as first reported by Upcomer on Nov. 5.
Most recently, the four new players that practiced with FaZe Clan are Immortals player Andrew “ShoT_UP” Orlowski, former Luminosity Gaming player Diondre “YaBoiDre” Bond, Built by Gamers player Jake “POACH” Brumleve and Ghost Gaming player Dajon “chase” Lopez, according to multiple sources. None of these players are signed to FaZe Clan at the time of publication and will likely explore other trials as well.
The organization has also expressed interest in an academy roster, multiple sources told Upcomer.
Also, FaZe Clan has recently released Corey Nigra who signed with TSM, according to a report by VLR.gg and independently confirmed by Upcomer.
Looking to improve
FaZe Clan had a disappointing run during the VALORANT Champions Tour this year. The organization failed to qualify for one of the few international Masters events. Most recently, FaZe Clan missed out on qualifying for Champions through the Last Chance Qualifier.
The team had a relatively successful run during Stage 1 Masters, which concluded in May. There, they defeated XSET, Envy and Gen.G but FaZe Clan lost to Sentinels, the best team in the region at that time, in the grand finals.
FaZe Clan are set to compete in the VALORANT Championship Tour 2022, which will begin sometime at the start of next year.
