Valkyria Main is a well-balanced squad of five talented players, who all of them have their abilities and understand CS deeper than anyone I know that plays on the DIV3 Level, and I'm sure we'll reach DIV2 eventually!
Here you'll get to meet them all!
Sovaxx is the IGL of the newest iteration of the Main Lineup and has a wide understanding of the game, bringing highly efficient calls and tactics into a structured team atmosphere. Besides being a very structured IGL, sovaxx also brings insane fragging power to the team! You can count on him to deliver!
How he made his way to Valkyria:
- Started playing Summer 2017 in Low-Level Teams with his friend to learn structured CS
- Joined VertionGaming in December 2018
- Ranked up from 99DMG Division 5 to Division 3/4 Relegation (insg. 3 seasons bei vertion)
- Switched to ShinskyBlue in january 2020
- Came to Valkyria to play his first Divsion 3 season
ShaXe was one of the IGLs of the first Valkyria iterations and is a well rounded Rifler as well as secondary AWPer for our team. He is very passionate and honest, which is why we will always be at the forefront in a debriefing after a scrim to talk about what has gone wrong. With his passion, he climbed the ranks to be one of the most reliable AWPers we've ever seen, hitting insane shots on the regular without developing a habit of over-flicking on easier targets.
How he made his way to Valkyria:
-He first dabbled in a few lower-level teams that often proved inefficient and not passionate in nature
-Around 2016 he joined a low-skill team called Hysteria, although low-skill, showed him a few basics of team play (e.g. Antiflash) which helped him heighten his skill ceiling
-Soon enough joined Crease Gaming and failed to string together too many wins in his first 99Damage season
-Joined Team Guardians around 2018 to help them rise from Div5 to Div4
-After a bit of typical CS-team turbulence, he went in out of IGLing Team Guardians
-In 2019 he jumped ship, together with the full 5-man roster, to Valkyria and eventually reaching Division 3 in the beginning of 2020
-After initially leaving CS towards the end of 2020 to take over the Valkyria management, ShaXe finds himself returning to the active Lineup as a Support player
A very skilled player, also being the mechanical anchor of the team which gives the team a solid platform to build the rest of the important skills on, like tactical variety and a strong mindset. You can rely on him clutching the round and opening up the next one, too! Keep an eye out on him.
It took some time for Kings to end up in a serious team:
-He started playing CS:GO as his first CS in 2014
-Around 2017 he started taking CS:GO more seriously and developed strong mechanical skills
-In 2021 he finally ended up on the Valkria Main Lineup to have a chance to prove himself
Lawk is a consistent and stable AWPer for Valkyria, who surprised with incredible performances in his first 99DMG Season with Valkyria. The rifles are no stranger to him and he is able to put out performance after performance to form a solid looking team.
-Throughout 2018 and 2019 Lawk played in a few Low-Level Teams
-Afterwards he reached Division 4 and won the Relegation to Div 3 with FC Greifenberg Youngsters
-Formed ShinksyBlue in the beginning of January 2020, to play together with Teammates such as sovaxx
-Came to Valkyria for the last 99DMG Season of 2020
Kiri243 can be quite the powerhouse mechanically, showing his individual prowess when the team starts to slack off with serious entries and some well-rounded support and 2nd-guy-in shenanigans. He is creative, listens well to the calls and can chime-in in close rounds as well. He barely has a bad game and, although he has slowed down a bit, is incredibly reliable.
Kiri and his OG teammate Fours had a very similar path to Valkyria:
-Kiri started playing CS with an age of nine years in 2009
-Got to know CS:GO in 2012 due to his brother who was playing CS:GO in the early beta stage
-In 2013, Kiri started to play in GSG7, together with Fours, who joined just a bit later
-GSG7 turned into Team Guardians later on
-Around 2016, he enjoyed a Battlefield break, only to return to CS as a stand-in for Team Guardians
-In 2019, Kiri, together with the other four players, joined Valkyria
-After several Lineup changes Kiri now finds himself back on the active Lineup for the 2021 Valkyria Main roster
