Nukkye leaves GIANTX

After playing for the club since 2022, Žygimantas “nukkye” Chmieliauskas has announced his exit from GIANTX. A player from the Spanish league is already on the club’s wish list. Online rumors concerning lineup adjustments for the GIANTX main event have been going around for a while. But it wasn’t until a few weeks later that the organization officially announced the player’s departure, having represented the team since 2022.

The core of the roster has been together since its original formation in late 2022, when they were getting ready to join leagues. The group, which was once known as Giants Gaming, had a reasonably successful career and appeared at Champions as one of EMEA’s more formidable teams. Even so, they were unable to secure a noteworthy position, coming in between 9th and 12th. Their most noteworthy performance in 2023 came in the Last Chance Qualifier, where they defeated NA’VI in the championship round to get the 4th seed into the EMEA region’s Champions tournament. It was revealed at the close of 2023 that Giants Gaming and Excel Esports would combine, forming GIANTX as a result. Regretfully, rising IGL player Emir “rhyme” Muminovic had also left the team, having stopped competing a few months earlier in the off-season. There was now a huge void on the roster as a result of this. In his place, they installed highly regarded former Team Liquid IGL Igor “Redgar” Vlasov. But GIANTX didn’t have a good start to 2024; they lost 0–2 in the Kickoff Group Stage and only won 2 maps in 2 series.

Nukkye’s extraordinary flexibility is well known. He began competing professionally in VALORANT in late 2020, and as late as 2023, he has pulled out agents with a wide range of personalities, including Raze, Killjoy, Sage, and Sova. Nukkye was one of their better players in the two Kickoff series, indicating that factors other than the server drove the decision. Since 2020, nukkye has consistently been top in European Valorant. His accomplishments include winning First Strike and competing for Team Heretics in the regional Masters grand final of 2021. For G2 Esports, he played after that. There, he participated in two separate Masters competitions on behalf of EMEA, making history as the first Lithuanian player to compete internationally. Following G2’s removal from the VCT alliances in 2023, Giants Gaming, now known as GIANTX, acquired nukkye.
Semyon “purp0” Borchev is anticipated to take nukkye’s post, according to a report. KPI Gaming, with a 13-1 regular season record and the best team in Challengers Spain right now, recently debuted the Russian flex.

GIANTX will shortly set out on a new adventure in the 2024 campaign. The next game, which is a part of the VALORANT Champions Tour 2024: EMEA League – Stage 1, is set for April 3. The team will contend for three spots in the VALORANT Champions Tour 2024: Masters Shanghai against the other ten best European teams. Fans are excited to see how this team could perform in the future and what will happen with Nukkye in the coming months.
