Acend has announced two new players for its Valorant roster, Ondřej ‘MONSTEERR’ Petrů and Vakaris ‘vakk’ Bebravičius, confirming previous reports from April 29th.
MONSTEERR and vakk have been announced by Acend as their newest players, replacing Vlad “Kiles” Shvets and Santeri “BONECOLD” Sassi, both of whom will be dropped by the organization after Valorant Champions Tour Stage 1 on Friday, May 29th.
Vakk was last seen on Team Vitality in France’s Valorant Regional League, VRL France: Revolution, where he and the team failed to make it to the playoff stage or the VCT Promotion tournament. Vakk will take on the IGL role for Acend.
MONSTEERR was at Giants Gaming prior to this recent move and competed in VLR Spain: Rising after failing to qualify for VCT Stage 1 Challengers.
Rebuilt to conquer.

Both BONECOLD and Kiles played various roles for the team, with BONECOLD taking on Smokes, Sentinels, and Sova for the team, while Kiles also sometimes played Smokes and Sentines.
MONSTEER has mostly played Sentinels for Giants lately, while vakk has mainly played Dueslist and Sage for Vitality.
Acend is trying to refresh its Valorant roster
Acend was going through rough times after its Valorant Champions winning streak in 2021. The team managed just two wins in their VCT EMEA Challengers group and had to field a substitute for their last game as their flexible player, Aleksander ‘zeek’ Zygmunt, needed a mental rest from the competition.
The team announced that its IGL BONECOLD would be going to the bench in March, and Kiles soon followed in early April. They were both released by the team on April 28.
Acend placed high enough in the group stage not to be relegated in the VCT Promotion Tournament and has not played an official game since losing to BBL Esports in Week 5 of the league.
Fans can see what the new Acend roster will look like when the VCT Stage 2 Challengers launch on May 13th.
