- Disguised will enter the SEA region through its new partnership with Singapore-based BLEED
- BLEED would also be able to potentially join the North American region sometime in the future
- More details on the two entities’ joint initiatives will be revealed soon
BLEED Esports and Disguised have fielded a new roster whose aims are to “break into the VALORANT Champions Tour next year”.
Disguised and BLEED Start Partnership
Over the past year, the esports organization Disguised has been steadily growing its portfolio of teams in various fields. Recently, the organization has entered the SEA region by fielding a new VALORANT squad with the aid of BLEED Esports, as the two entities announced their new partnership. Thanks to BLEED’s support, Disguised’s players will compete in the VCT Challengers league.
With this deal, Disguised will be able to have a strong foothold in the Asian competitive VALORANT scene. However, the deal is two-way, as in a release, BLEED said that the partnership could also open the path to the North American region for it sometime in the future.
Aside from mutual support in various esports scenes, the two organizations will also work on activations in the Asian region. However, this also marks Disguised’s official exit from the VALORANT North American region. The organization has done this so it could concentrate on its new goal which is to “break into the VALORANT Champions Tour next year”. The roster currently looks like this:
- Bryce “bryce” Lee
- Wong “JayH” Heng
- Tyler “juicy” Aeria
- Azrie “Riza” Adly
- Wayne “wayne” Chang
- Alexander “alexRr” Frisch (coach)
BLEED COO Ian Huston said a few words about the partnership, stressing the importance of remembering the organization’s origins, which lie in Singapore. “As the Ascension team for VCT Pacific, it’s important to us to remember where we started. To keep supporting Challengers and Malaysia/Singapore through VALORANT, we couldn’t be more excited to welcome Disguised’s expansion into Asia,” Huston explained. “More details on our joint initiatives will be revealed soon, where our priority is the fans and growing our community.”
More About the Two Organizations
Disguised is perhaps most well-known for its founder, Jeremy Wang known as Disguised Toast. He is a popular Taiwanese-Canadian streamer, YouTuber, and Internet personality who created the organization a year ago by entering competitive VALORANT with a team named after his online moniker.
Although the Disguised VALORANT roster struggled initially, this did not stop the YouTuber from expanding into other fields as well. Currently, the esports organization supports active teams in League of Legends, Apex Legends, and Teamfight Tactics, aside from its VALORANT ventures.
Meanwhile, BLEED esports entered the VCT Pacific through the Ascension tournament in June last year when they defeated SCARZ 3-0 and won first place. In addition to VALORANT, Bleed also fields rosters in Dota 2, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, and Rainbow Six: Siege.
