NEW YORK, NEW YORK, April 7th, 2021 — Beastcoast has added Yannick “KOLER” Blanchette and Chad “Oderus” Miller roster as part of their ongoing commitment to building a highly competitive VALORANT roster.
Prior to their time on Beastcoast, both players spent time competing in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive before switching to VALORANT. Playing as a duelist with NRG and Immortals, KOLER has moved into the sentinel role and looks to add new depth to the roster with this change. Coming over from Dignitas, Oderus will help push the team even further by taking on the role of In-Game Leader.
KOLER on joining the team:
I’m grateful to beastcoast for this opportunity, & hyped to be back. My only goal is to win and I know I can do it with this squad.
Oderus has a quick message to Beastcoast fans:
We are going to be one of the best teams in NA, can't wait to show everyone what we got.
A few words from Beastcoast GM Colin Bashor on the pickups:
KOLER & Oderus bring excellent experience and understanding of Valorant to the team. We're really excited to have them on the team and look forward to continuing to build our legacy with their performance.
