Attack All Around have bolstered their ranks with two new additions in the form of Patcharapon “Niffy” Junman and coach Tosapol “TOR” Saekow
THAILAND – Patcharapon “Niffy” Junman and coach Tosapol “TOR” Saekow have been unveiled as new members of Attack All Around for the upcoming season, the Thai organization announced last Friday.
Niffy is set to assume the Initiator player position, taking over from FULL SENSE-bound Elamrahim “LAMMYSNAX” Khanpathan and Nuttadet “xcool” Wijit, who will return to FW Esports following his loan tenure with AAA. Meanwhile, TOR will step into the coaching role once held by Arm “HAx0R” Kokijrojana, though HAx0R will remain as part of the coaching staff.
The team’s fifth and final member is Niffy, best recognized for his tenure as the primary duelist for Sharper Esport during 2021 and 2022. Nevertheless, the 22-year-old has since shifted to an Initiator role with CRIT Esports, aiding them in achieving a fourth-place finish in VCL Thailand Split 2 and standing out as the team’s second-highest-rated player.
Alongside Niffy will be Chanitpak “ChAlalala” Suwanaprateep perhaps the most notable name from his time with FULL SENSE and former Team NKT player Thanasit “Raigard” Seang. Two emerging Thai talents in Sutthichai “Potter” Promsrikaew and Atsadrawut “basbabe” Khunthong round out the lineup, with the former notably achieving a team-high rating in Split 2 as a duelist.
While Coach TOR initially spearheaded XERXIA Esports’ efforts during the season, he was succeeded by Kitsada “bnwGiggs” Pookarmroung mid-way through Split 2. The 29-year-old was not present in the team’s eventual victory in the domestic event, leading to their participation in VCT Ascension Pacific on home ground.
In the 2023 season, Attack All Around found themselves once again in the higher ranks of the standings after revamping their lineup, securing a second runners-up spot in VCL Thailand Split 2 and a respectable fifth place in the subsequent split. The latter saw them narrowly miss the playoffs in a tight tiebreaker but still left much to be desired.
However, it remains uncertain whether the inclusion of Niffy and coach TOR will solidify the final lineup of AAA for the upcoming OFF//SEASON and 2024 season.
The newly revamped Attack All Around are set to make their first appearance on September 4, participating in the Thailand Qualifier for the AfreecaTV VALORANT LEAGUE. They will be among eight teams from the 2023 VCL Thailand, joined by four qualifier squads, all vying for a prize pool of TH฿250,000 and a sought-after spot in the main event in Seoul, South Korea.
With the addition of the two players, Attack All Around’s lineup is:
- 🇹🇭 Chanitpak “ChAlalala” Suwanaprateep
- 🇹🇭 Thanasit “Raigard” Seang
- 🇹🇭 Sutthichai “Potter” Promsrikaew
- 🇹🇭 Atsadrawut “basbabe” Khunthong
- 🇹🇭 Patcharapon “Niffy” Junman
- 🇹🇭 Tosapol “TOR” Saekow (Coach)
- 🇹🇭 Arm “HAx0R” Kokijrojana (Coach/Analyst)
