Babybay joins FaZe Clan VALORANT roster

Written By    Mostafeto  -  share on

FaZe Clan’s VALORANT roster hasn’t been the most stable in the competitive scene to say the least. The organization announced the signing of Jason "jasonR" Ruchelski and Corey "corey" Nigra right before T1 x NSG Showdown, but jasonR wasn’t included in the playing squad for the actual tournament. Since then, they’ve parted ways with jasonR and have welcomed Zachary "ZachaREEE" Lombardo and Jimmy "Marved" Nguyen to the team. Today, FaZe Clan have announced their VALORANT roster’s fourth member, Andrej "babybay" Francisty.

Babybay is a former Overwatch player, with several titles under his belt. The American player won the Rivalcade Weekly #8 North America early in his career with Splyce in 2017. He continued to find success with Kungarna, winning the Overwatch Rumble May Open Qualifier and finishing third in the Overwatch Rumble May. More recently, he finished ninth in the Overwatch League Inaugural Season and second in the Overwatch League 2019 Stage 1 Playoffs with the San Francisco Shock.

Babybay was part of the Atlanta Reign Overwatch team in the latter stages of his career, finishing sixth in the Overwatch League 2019 Regular Season and fifth in the Playoffs. The following year, he placed between 5 - 8th in both the Overwatch League 2020 May Melee and Summer Showdown.

His VALORANT career isn’t as decorated as the other players being recruited in other organizations, including the likes of Josh "shinobi" Abastado to Cloud9 Blue and David "davidp" Prins to G2 Esports. He’s only participated in the Pittsburgh Knights Charity Invitational Qualifier under the banner The Aimers, and finished between the 13th-16th positions.

Who do you think will join them as their fifth? Do you think they will manage to perform in future tournaments? Let us know your thoughts on FaZe Clan’s recruits so far in the comments down below!
