Parting ways with Melih “pAura” Karaduran, SuperMassive Blaze is trying to strengthen its squad by adding Göktuğ “XiSTOU” Canciğer to its roster.
The organization announced that they entered the VALORANT stage a while ago and signed with the best players of Turkey to compete on the stage. The team won the VALORANT Champions Tour 2021 -Phase 3- Turkey- Challengers 1 and qualified for the VALORANT Champions Tour 2021 -Phase 3-EMEA-Challengers Playoffs. After showing both unexpected and strong performances against their international rivals, they took second place to compete in the VALORANT Champions Tour 2021-Phase 3 -Masters Berlin- Group Stage, but later failed to show their desired performance.
SuperMassive Blaze and pAura officially cut ties yesterday and it looks like Batuhan “russ” Malgac and Mehmet “Turko” Özen will also be leaving before VCT 2022. According to the latest announcement, former Oxygen Esports player XiSTOU became the second name to join the team right after Caner “CyderX” Demir.
XiSTOU was an important part of the Oxygen Esports squad, especially at the VALORANT Champions Tour 2021 -Stage 1- Turkey Masters and VALORANT Champions Tour 2021 -Stage 2-Europe-Challengers Playoffs, where they reached the semi-finals.
With this change, SuperMassive Blaze's roster is as follows:
Baran “Izzy” Yilmaz
Eren “Brave” Hurricane
Caner “CyderX” Demir
Goktug “XiSTOU” Canciver
