Knights move on from Exalt

The Pittsburgh Knights have announced that they will be allowing Drake "Exalt" Branly to search for team options, although he will remain contracted to the Knights.

As part of lower tier teams during 2020, Exalt made a name for himself as one of the best young up-and-coming aimers in the scene. With a headshot percentage hovering around mid 20s and an ACS of 246 across mainly duelist agents, he shined enough to get invited to join the Knights in March. Despite some promising results, the team couldn't get over the hump and failed to qualify for any of the closed qualifier rounds during VCT. Their best finish came during the Challengers 2 Open Qualifier tournament, where they took home a 9th-16th place finish, just missing out on the final event.

For the Knights, they are currently taking place in the first qualifier for the NSG Winter Championship, where they are currently advanced to the quarterfinals. Exalt will be without a team for now, however with his prowess and aim, he likely will be finding a home once the NA LCQ is complete and rostermania begins.

The Pittsburgh Knights are currently:

Damion "XXIF" Cook Jonathan "Silenx" Huntington Bryan "Makka" Drouillard Ashton "Frosty" Rakoske Jonard "Jonaaa6" Penaflor
