OverActive Media have secured a spot in the 2023 North America Valorant Challengers League, the company confirmed Tuesday.
The team will compete under the name MAD Lions after qualifying for the league as Dark Ratio.
Dark Ratio earned a spot in the 12-team Challengers League via a top-four finish at the open qualifier earlier this month.
“We’re thrilled to join this exclusive group of talented players and notable organizations for the NA League’s inaugural season,” OverActive chief strategy officer Adam Adamou said. “VALORANT is today’s fastest-growing esport and we’re proud to have made it through the competition.”
The MAD Lions roster features Adam “Ange” Milian, Justin “Trick” Sears, Taylor “drone” Johnson, Anthony “ZexRow” Colandro, William “Will” Cheng and head coach Jornen “MoonChopper” Nishiyama.
The first NA Challengers League split begins Wednesday and runs through March 17.
