Today it was announced that UNtapped, a female Valorant free agent team, has signed with the reigning Valorant world champions, Acend. We at AFK Pros are happy to have leveraged our long-standing relationship with Acend to facilitate this move and are delighted for our clients Jade ‘jade’ Duffy and Annika ‘mediKa’ Lambertz.
MediKa is the team captain and has been with the roster since its inception. UNtapped first competed in the Game Changers EMEA Series 1 event and immediately had an impact on the scene through a 5th-6th placement. That iteration of the team also had success in the Huntress Trials and Birds of Prey tournaments, reaching the semi-finals in both. After these tournaments jade joined UNtapped and slotted in seamlessly, driving them to some brilliant wins in Game Changers EMEA Series 2 event.
Acend was founded in 2021 and rose to prominence in Valorant, becoming the esport’s inaugural world champions. With this signing Acend join the long list of top-tier organisations committed to female Valorant and the Game Changer’s series, including; G2, Cloud9, Guild, TSM and Misfits.
Acend prides itself on building up rosters through mental coaching, nutritional advice, and high-level coaching allowing teams to reach their true potential. It is this ethos that gives us the confidence to say that Acend is the perfect home for the team. Now with the deal completed the team at AFK looks forward to watching them represent the Acend and can’t wait for their future successes.
