Jeremy “DisguisedToast” Wang and Jaccob “yay” Whiteaker apologized for the team’s poor performance at the NA VCL Split 2.

The Valorant Challengers League North America, which began with 12 professional teams last month, is halfway done, and we can now more clearly see which teams are in a position to move on to the next round. Among the twelve participating teams are Moist Moguls and Disguised, the high-caliber roster owned by popular content creators Ludwig Ahgren and Jeremy “DisguisedToast” Wang respectively. Although they have a mutual support system of content creators, they are at the exact other ends of the league standings.

Disguised conceded three-consecutive matches despite Yay’s addition

After placing eighth at the NA VCL Split 1 and seventh to eighth at the Mid-Season Face-Off, the highly anticipated Disguised roster underwent a significant makeover. Jaccob “yay” Whiteaker, one of North America’s finest Valorant players, was added to the squad in the hopes of improving its performance at Challengers League Split 2. Despite the high-profile signing, the team’s performance has remained dismal, failing to have the intended result.

After suffering devastating losses against Oxygen Esports, Shopify Rebellions, and Turtle Troops, Disguised is currently at the bottom of the group. The squad still has a chance to qualify for the playoffs with their final two games against M 80 and TSM, but the chances remain slim. After realizing what might be coming, Disguised apologized to the team’s supporters on Twitter.

Disguised Toast’s Tweetlonger claims that the team has been under tremendous strain with every loss because of the team’s enormous fan base and ongoing support from Disguised Toast. With 137.3K Peak Viewers, Disguised’s match against Oxygen Esports outperformed both the Valorant Challengers 2023: NA Face-Off. The popularity of the team only went upward with the addition of yay but their performance only plummeted. 

The popular streamer also revealed that the players of the team apologize after each loss, further demonstrating how the spotlight effect is breaking the morale of a high-caliber roster. Yay also addressed the concerns of fans in response to DisguisedToast’s emotionally evocative post. The former OpTic star claimed that Disguised’s dismal performance was partially due to his failure to take advantage of the opportunities. 

Even though the team’s chances of making the playoffs are still in doubt, Disguised still has two thrilling games left to thrill their fans. The team will first take on M80 in week 9 before taking on TSM in the final week of league play. The team’s only chance to make the playoffs is to win both of its games and hope that the nearest rivals, such as TSM, Orange Rock, G2, and Mad Lions, lose theirs.
