Maintaining a great ADR while playing Agents like Omen and Brimstone, ec1 might be the newest Controller player for Velocity Gaming. He plays for Human Tripwires, where he last competed for the VCL NE Polaris. The player had also been a member of Team Liquid for a long time before parting ways in 2021.


Doma is also an excellent player, largely known for filling roles on Agents like Sentinels and Initiators. He quickly gained recognition during the Valorant Champions Tour 2021, where he played for Fnatic.

It is yet to be known which Agents and roles the player will fill after stepping into the South Asian Challengers with the Indian organization. Doma played his last tournament for the event G-Loot Clash, where he played for a currently inactive roster named BRATAN MIX.

Velocity Gaming's owner Manoj Kasyap tweeted that the roster announcement will possibly be between 20 to 27 February 2023.

Announcement ka exact date I cannot tell but will surely so it between 20-27th of this month.

Valorant enthusiasts looking forward to the South Asian Valorant Challengers might be interested in Velocity Gaming's updated roster, as the squad is set to take on other teams from the tournament.

As the South Asian Challengers will also follow a unique format that will include a Contenders tournament, the team will have to prove its worth in either of the two Splits. If the rumors were to be believed, the Indian organization would go in with two new European athletes.
