Bliss are continuing their expansion in Oceanic esports by signing a new Valorant roster in Funcrew. They will be competing in Valorant Oceania Tour, as well as the upcoming Rising Heroes and Order Nova Invitational events.
Bliss has added a new squad under their banner, re-entering the Valorant scene with the signing of Funcrew.
The free agent roster has been playing under the Funcrew banner since First Strike, when they broke out onto the scene with a shock ascent into the Top 16. They have since broken into the top of Oceanic Valorant, and are considered one of the region’s best teams.
“Looking for an org for us was quite the journey. We had multiple setbacks, but we’ve finally found a place we are happy with,” player “Eezy” told Snowball.
“Bliss is our new home, they have great management and we’re going to put our name out there for them.”
Bliss formerly had the Rockdale’s Finest roster under their banner. The squad disbanded after First Strike Oceania.
The organisation had been looking to re-enter the scene since then, and found the perfect fit with Funcrew.
“We’ve been exploring our options ever since our original Valorant roster separated and wanted to bring in a team capable of competing at the top of the Oceanic Valorant scene throughout 2021 with the long term goals of qualifying for the OCE & NA Last Chance Qualifier and Valorant Champions,” Bliss’ management “Testroy” told Snowball.
It’s part of a wider expansion for the organization. Previously just a PUBG team, they now have a Rainbow Six team competing in Oceanic Nationals, and a LAN cafe in Brisbane.
“We’re set to have a huge year on multiple fronts including to continue making inroads in the Esports scene,” Testroy added.
As for the new Bliss Valorant roster, who finished fourth in VOT Stage 1, they have their sights set on taking number one in Oceania and making it international — just like Soniqs.
“Our ultimate goal is to get to NA. We’re all going to put in the work to try and make that a reality. When the stars align and everything is set, Bliss will be the best Oceanic Valorant team. Give us time,” Eezy said.
The Bliss Valorant roster consists of: eezy, junglew0w, Fweshest, Wronski, m4jor, Thang Map (Sub), and Dafcee (Manager)
