Moist Esports Joining Valorant Scene After Signing BreakThru Roster
Moist Esports is officially getting wet in Valorant Esports.
Moist Esports Joins Their 5th Esports Scene
Moist Esports is an up-and-coming Esports organization founded by Charlie “MoistCr1TiKaL” White in late 2021. Primarily inspired by his love for Smash, Moist Esports initially started as just a Smash organization. But that didn't last long. The competitive fighting game scene is largely unprofitable (Especially Smash. And that's before the future of competitive Smash began to look bleak), and Charlie has admitted in the past that he operates Moist Esports at a loss. If he wanted to avoid doing so forever, he'd naturally have to expand his organization into other Esports territories. And he has.
At the end of August 2021, Moist Esports signed their own Guilty Gear Strive player. In May 2022, Moist Esports announced the fielding of their own Rocket League team. And in September 2022, Moist Esports developed an Apex Legends team.
Well, now, you can add Valorant to the list of competitive Esports about to get moist.
Last month, popular streamer Ludwig announced that he joined Moist Esports as a co-owner. He expressed doubts about joining competitive Valorant as a T2 organization, citing the challenging climb to the big leagues for organizations that aren't Riot Games partners as a risk that needs deep assessment before taking.
