Introducing TENSTAR XMS

by Dominic Widdop | December 17, 2021

TENSTAR are thrilled to announce the signing of industry veteran Alexandre "XMS" Forté to their renowned VALORANT roster.

XMS enters TENSTAR for the 2022 season after a switch to VALORANT following an illustrious CS:GO career with Team Envy and Team LDLC.

He brings a level of drive and experience that TENSTAR hopes will allow their roster to push the already dizzying heights of 2021 to new horizons. 

On the signing of XMS TENSTAR CEO Tom Roderick commented:

This is huge for us.

XMS is a real CSGO performer, and he's played shoulder to shoulder with great converts to Valorant like Team Liquid's Scream. We needed to take a step further forward from 2021, and whilst we exceeded every goal we set, we want 2022 to be bigger. XMS brings an edge to our team, his fundamentals are off the scale. He brings big-game experience, solid mentals and know-how.

We want to beat those teams who were at Champions, and that comes with adjusting ourselves and getting outside of our comfort zone.

In Kray and Brodie, we have a hugely solid axis, Stanley on his day is world-class, and Polvi with XMS bring insane firepower. We should feel very confident. We have the best backroom staff in the region.

XMS is the missing link, and I know he feels he's got something to prove. I've seen him in prac, and I love what I've seen. Bring on January.

TENSTAR VALORANT ended its 2021 run under the TENSTAR banner with multiple tier 1 tournament accolades. 

This signing is just one of many exciting recent editions to TENSTAR's talented rosters with RacheLL joining their 2x winning Nova roster and their academy adding a trio of fresh industry signings.
