Crazyguy rejoins BLEED’s Valorant roster

Two months ago, crazyguy was removed from the BLEED roster after a disappointing performance at the VCT Pacific Kickoff. He has been invited to play under the organization again after yay took a break from competitive Valorant.

Crazyguy is BLEED’s former in-game leader who led the organization to winning Ascension Pacific in 2023. This monumental victory allowed BLEED to join the franchising league, where they could play against the best teams in the Asia Pacific region. 

BLEED recruited world-renowned Duelist yay to play under crazyguy’s leadership, and fans were excited to see what the new roster could come up with. The team was set to debut at the VCT Pacific Kickoff tournament.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned. BLEED lost two consecutive matches at the event and was immediately eliminated in last place. Despite only playing two Best of 3 series with yay, crazyguy was immediately benched from the team after one event with the new iteration of BLEED. Crazyguy was unhappy with his benching, considering he had been on the team since the beginning. 

It seemed like the Viet did not have a good relationship with yay. A month after his removal from the roster, crazyguy accused yay of not displaying full commitment to the team while the rest of the members were trying their best.

In this shocking statement, the 27-year-old claimed that the team was given a one-month break before the VCT Pacific Kickoff but advised to continue playing ranked matches to stay in form. Every member of the team played sufficient ranked matches, but yay did not play a single game. 

Nonetheless, BLEED moved on without crazyguy to play at the VCT Pacific Stage 1 tournament with two new players, Zest and Retla. The additions to the team did not bear fruit, as BLEED was again eliminated in last place, ending their group stage run with a 1-5 record.

Following the second failure, yay has decided to take an extended break from professional Valorant, claiming it was due to health issues. Previously, the American had mentioned he was having problems with his eyesight. His vision was becoming blurry, and sometimes, he could not react to an opponent’s move in-game, and he had no idea what caused it.

As a result, crazyguy has been brought back into the team after two months of inactivity. It looks like he will continue shouldering the role of the team’s in-game leader. 

With the re-addition of crazyguy, the BLEED roster is now:

  • Derrick “Deryeon” Yee
  • Natchaphon “sScary” Matarat
  • Jorell “Retla” Teo
  • Kim “Zest” Gi-seok
  • Ngô “crazyguy” Công Anh

With yay out of the team, Deryeon will likely move to the Duelist role, while crazyguy will play his Initiator role, mainly playing recon agents such as Sova and Skye. 

BLEED’s next gig is VCT Pacific Stage 2, which will begin in two weeks. Their first match is scheduled for June 15, where they will play against Team Secret.
