According to Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau in analyst Sean’sgares’ Gares’ most recent video, Valorant superstar Aspas, one of the finest players in the world, could be departing LOUD at the end of the season. The esports insider claims that LOUD is considering alternatives for the upcoming campaign and may leave Aspas after Valorant Champions 2023 owing to internal problems. Aspas is recognized as one of the top Valorant players in the world. Therefore, the news comes as a huge shock. He was crucial to LOUD’s victory over Valorous Champions 2022 and their second-place finish at the VCT Stage 1 Masters in Reykjavik.
After losing Gustavo ‘Sacy’ Rossi and Bryan ‘pANcada’ Luna to Sentinels, LOUD appeared to be heading in the right direction after finishing second at VCT LOCK//IN 2023. However, the Brazilian juggernauts unexpectedly hit a brick wall at VCT Masters Tokyo, where they were eliminated in 7th or 8th place after losses to Evil Geniuses and Edward Gaming.
There are rumors about Aspas and LOUD
Matias ‘Saadhak’ Delipetro announced during a press conference that the team faced “issues outside of the server” following LOUD’s elimination. However, he opted not to provide any further details. In the video, Slasher said that LOUD had just visited Brazil and scrimmed without spas since the Valorant star chose to stay in Los Angeles. According to reports, the club’s internal dynamics are so awful that they might perform even worse at Champions than in Tokyo. According to Slasher, many people also think that the squad may have entirely disintegrated, and Aspas’s odds of quitting the team after the season are 90% or higher.
It remains unconfirmed whether Aspas will depart from LOUD or not. However, if he chooses to do so, it is still unclear where he may land. Aspas is close friends with Gustavo ‘Sacy’ Rossi and Bryan ‘pANcada’ Luna. Therefore, a move to the Sentinels is conceivable, according to Slasher. The possibility of that occurring, according to Sgares, is slim because it would depend on several variables, such as Tyson ‘TenZ’ Ngo leaving and probable linguistic difficulties with Zachary ‘Zekken’ Patrone.
It’s a vast stretch, remarked Sgares. What’s the point of playing on an English-speaking team if they add another Portuguese-speaking player? Then the question of why the Sentinels would seek an all-Brazilian team arises. Group D of Valorant Champions includes LOUD, DRX, NAVI, and Team Liquid. The squad will play the VCT Pacific giants in a rematch of the VCT LOCK//IN semifinals in their first series in Los Angeles.
