yay Valorant: yay joins Team ENVY: Jaccob "yay" Whiteaker has joined Team ENVY Valorant team as announced by the organisation on twitter.
Jaccob "yay" Whiteaker formerly of ANDBOX Valorant team has now joined Team ENVY after weeks of rumours and speculations. yay was undoubtedly the best player of ANDBOX and one of the main reasons for the team's success and achievements.
He is widely considered among the top duelists in the North-American Valorant region along with the likes of Tenz, BABYBAY, Asuna, WARDELL and Victor. He notoriously plays Jett and has earned the nickname "El Diablo" due to his nutty aim and absolute domination he has on each and every server he plays in.
yay will be replacing Anthony "mummAy" DiPaolo on Team ENVY's active lineup. This new roster will debut in a week at the VCT NA Stage 3 Playoffs in the Quarterfinals against TSM. The last time these teams went head to head was at the First-Strike: Main Event North America held in December 2020. TSM 2-0'd Team ENVY. Since then, both the teams have undergone some roster changes and it will surely be very interesting to see who will win the upcoming matchup with their new and improved rosters.
With El Diablo in the team, Team ENVY's Valorant roster is now:
- Pujan "FNS" Mehta
- Jimmy "Marved" Nguyen
- Victor "Victor" Wong
- Austin "crashies" Roberts
- Jaccob "yay" Whiteaker
- Anthony "mummAy" DiPaolo (Inactive)
