Team Heretics’ Bold Investment: Signing Wo0t for VCT 2024

Team Heretics plans a game-changing move for VCT 2024 by hiring the Turkish youngster, but awaits Wo0t's 18th birthday to make it happen

In the ever-evolving world of esports, where talent takes center stage, Team Heretics is engineering a strategic maneuver that has the potential to reshape their course in Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) 2024. Their focus is entirely on a promising young player, Mert “Wo0t” Alkan, a rising star brimming with untapped potential.

However, there's a twist in this narrative—Wo0t is a mere 17-year-old, and VCT regulations rigidly bar players under the age of 18 from competing. As the global esports community watches with anticipation, Heretics is placing their bets on a brighter future that aligns with his upcoming 18th birthday.

Wo0t's Promising Path Ahead: A Star on the Rise

In the vibrant landscape of esports, few individuals have captured the attention of their peers quite like Mert “Wo0t” Alkan. Though youth is on his side at just 17, this young Turkish esport athlete's journey is already etched with promise and remarkable potential. Hailing from Turkey's regional leagues, he has consistently demonstrated remarkable gameplay, aim and an innate understanding of the game.

While Wo0t's role as a Duelist in the Turkish league underscores his combat prowess, his versatility is equally remarkable. He has seamlessly transitioned into smoker roles with Omen and Viper, showcasing adaptability and an unwavering commitment to contributing to the team's collective triumphs. While the top standards of competition may demand an adjustment period, he undoubtedly stands as one of the budding stars in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) region.

Team Heretics’ Legacy And Visions for the Future

This renowned esports organization has a name associated with excellence in the world of Valorant, and is now standing at the threshold of a remarkable transformation. Following a less-than-ideal performance in VCT 2023, the team is embarking on a journey towards a brighter and more promising future. In their pursuit of renewal, they've initiated an extensive restructuring, bidding farewell to players like Auni “AvovA” Chahade and Wassim “keloqz” Cista, while rumors circulate about Oscar “Mixwell” Cañellas contemplating departure, a decision presumably guided by personal motives.

However, what has truly captivated the attention of both the esports organization and the broader esports community is the emergence of a young prodigy, Wo0t. The team envisions a fresh start, guided by a youthful and dynamic squad poised to grow as individuals and a cohesive unit.

Nevertheless, they confront a formidable obstacle in the form of VCT regulations, which steadfastly prohibit players under the age of 18 from participating. This regulation presents a unique challenge since his 18th birthday coincides with the VCT Masters Madrid, a timing intricacy that Heretics must navigate with astute deliberation and foresight.


Team Heretics' bold move to bring the young Turkish talent into their fold is a daring step toward a brighter future in Valorant. Their history of excellence and their forward-looking vision for a reenergized roster underline their steadfast commitment to reaching new heights in VCT 2024. As they eagerly prepare for Wo0t's upcoming transition into adulthood and carefully plan for contingencies, one thing is crystal clear: the global esports community will be closely watching Heretics' determined journey towards greatness in the upcoming season. The collaboration between this rising star and the esteemed organization promises an exciting chapter in esports history, all as he edges closer to a triumphant debut on the grand Valorant stage.
