nolpenki reform around vakk as an international five

Written By    Mandeep  -  Share:

Months ago we saw nolpenki formed as a full Lithuanian five. Since then, the squad has won many events including Trovo Challenge - Europe, but the roster has now decided to go international with the additions of Mehmet Yağız "cNed" İpek, Aleksander "zeek" Zygmunt, Jesse "JESMUND" Terävä, and Aron "xajdish" Fredriksson, to play alongside captain Vakaris "vakk" Bebravičius.

This news means that Dovydas "cho" Misevičius, Marius  "l0udly" Žilinskas, and Tomas "Destrian" Linikas leave alongside Ričardas "Boo" Lukaševičius who announced his departure only a few weeks ago. The old squad was well known in Europe, being one of the most deadly squads, even qualifying to WePlay! VALORANT Invitational through a grueling qualifier and holding a 12th position on the THESPIKE.GG’s European rankings.

zeek comes into nolpenki as their Sova, playing the role heavily during his time at the recently disbanded THOSE GUYS managing to average a 229 ACS and 1.26 KD. The Pole played many regional cups in his region and won most, including the Dell Cup by x-kom AGO and Polish Esport Cup, most recently finishing runner up in Polish Open #FRAMESWINGAMES.

Their Omen, xajdish, comes in after his long time at Guild Esports, where the Swede picked up second place spots in Ignition Series events, LVL VALORANT Clash 2 and Mandatory.GG Cup. Even earlier in his VALORANT career, he played multiple series with DREAMCHASERS at Epulze Valorant Prodigies.

cNed is one of the most promising players in the European region, averaging an amazing 268 ACS and 1.41 KD so far. The Turk tops many people’s Jett player list, appearing in nolpenki after his time at BBL Esports where he helped his squad achieve top four at Mandatory.GG Cup and qualifying for Allied Esports Odyssey and was even rumoured to join Fnatic.

Their last member is JESMUND, a Finnish player most known for his time at 2G4L and Mattistack. He used to play Raze but now shifts to Cypher for nolpenki, where he has so far managed a 1.3 KD.

The new five looks very promising, already playing through TOURSTAT Summer Clash with this new roster where they haven’t dropped a singular map. While looking promising, it is yet to be seen whether the players can maintain this performance.

The changes see nolpenki’s roster become:

Vakaris "vakk" Bebravičius Jesse "JESMUND" Terävä Aron "xajdish" Fredriksson Mehmet Yağız "cNed" İpek Aleksander "zeek" Zygmunt


I could see this team being signed by a big org in the future, they have the stars and the talent, if the rumors from long ago still stand true and FNATIC still have their eyes on cNed, this is the roster to pick up

So many nationalities, will see if communication isn't a problem at a certain point

G2 is fully international as well, and they don't have issues with it (at least, it looks like that). So I wouldn't worry about it too much.

I have a split opinion on this roster...vakk and cNed on one roster seems great, but both are best suited to Jett and therefore I think it's a nerf to one of both players if you force him to adapt to another role.
