The XERXIA has announced the release of VALORANT players Thanamethk “Crws” Mahatthananuyut, Panyawat “sushiboys” Subsiriroj, Itthirit “foxz” Ngamsaard, coach Yuttanagorn “Zeus” Kaewkongyai, and manager Jirawat “HeadHawk” Kalumpanun. They are all now unrestricted free agents. XERXIA parts ways with VALORANT trio. Let’s discuss everything.
The news that XERXIA and the team are splitting up comes more than a month after they finished in the top 16 at VALORANT Champions and exactly one month after XERXIA was excluded from VALORANT’s partnership programme. Nutchaphon “sScary” Matarat had already left XERXIA to join Bleed eSports, but the rest of the team’s fate was unknown. Because the organization did not mention Thanachart “Surf” Rungapajaratkul in their announcement, it is unclear whether he will remain on XERXIA.
XERXIA parts ways with VALORANT trio
Everyone who left the team had been with XERXIA since January 2022. Crws, sushiboys, foxz, and Zeus joined the Thai organization after their contracts with X10 CRIT expired in the same month. In addition to playing at Champions, they all attended all three international VALORANT events this year under XERXIA, finishing top 10 at VCT Masters One Reykjavik in April and top 12 at VCT Masters Two Copenhagen in July.
