EXCEL Esports, Champions of the Valorant Regional League Northern Europe: Polaris has decided to bench Oscar ‘ozzy’ Scott and Dragan ‘elllement’ after an unsuccessful performance in the VCT Promotion Tournament, multiple sources have told Dexerto.
On January 10th, EXCEL Esports officially announced its new Valorant roster. At that time, Patryk ‘paTiTek’ Fabrowski, Egor ‘chiwawa’ Stepanyuk, Oscar ‘ozzy’ Scott and Dragan ‘elllement’ Milanović joined the British organization, while Muhammad ‘Moe40’ Hariff signed earlier.
With this line-up, the European team came very close to making it into the VCT Stage 1: EMEA Challengers, but fell to LDN UTD in the losers bracket finals. Due to the lack of promotion to the best league in Europe, EXCEL took part in the open qualifier for Polaris, where they managed to qualify without any problems.

A few weeks later, EXCEL finally won the league. The European team defeated TENSTAR in the grand finals to advance to the VCT Promotion Tournament.
There, however, XL performed far below expectations and a double loss to Surreal Esports eliminated them from the tournament. After this disappointing result, EXCEL Esports will bench two players: Ozzy and Ellement.
For the time being, both players are already looking for new teams, and the EXCEL substitutes are not yet known. The British organization will soon start a trial period to find signings for this team.
After that, EXCEL should be:
- Muhammad ‘Moe40’ Hariff
- Egor ‘Khivava’ Stepanyuk
- Patryk “paTiTek” Fabrowski
- Dragan ‘elllement’ Milanović – Bench
- Oscar ‘ozzy’ Scott – Bench
- Jimmy “Jumpy” Berndtsson – Head Coach
- Sam “Fields” Greenfield – Assistant Coach
