FULL SENSE have extended their venture to the Game Changers scene with the signing of the former X10 Sapphire quartet.
THAILAND – FULL SENSE have announced their first foray into the VCT Game Changers scene with the signing of the Sapphire roster. The squad had been searching for a new organization since their contracts with X10 Esports expired in December. This signing sees FULL SENSE field four former X10 Sapphire roster and their coach alongside new addition Dhammamitta “margeaux” Marvella.
The core quarter of this roster, formed by Pornlapat “babytz” Wittayanan, Patcharapron “poly” Sanitchai, Annitta “Alyssa” Peerwantanagul, Sarindhorn “JinNy” Wanothayarnchai, and Chalita “Muffyn” Buathong, have been mainstays in the upper echelons of the Game Changers scene and gained notoriety in 2022 under the X10 Sapphire/X10 Female banner.
The team most notably put an end to Alter Ego Celestè’s dynasty in the VCT Game Changers APAC Elite stage last year, defeating the Indonesian powerhouse to earn a spot in the 2022 world championship. However, defeats at the hands of two eventual finalists, G2 Gozen and Shopify Rebellion, saw the side ultimately finish 5-6th in Berlin, Germany.
Rounding out the roster is an import from Indonesia in the form of margeaux. She links up with the Sapphire roster after spending the better part of last year with BIGG SCYTHE, as well as ARF Starlight.
Despite this, margeaux was better known as a former Alter Ego Celestè player in the 2021 season, with all six Opens under her belt, as well as having represented Indonesia in the IESF Female World Esports Championship 2022 for Valve’s first-person shooter. The new addition was brought in to replace Annitta “Alyssa” Peerwantanagul, who currently plays for Kizuna Tsuki.
Now that the team is playing under the FULL SENSE banner, they have the structure necessary for further improvement. Before being signed by FULL SENSE, Sapphire played in VCT Game Changers APAC Open 1. However, their recent tournament run came to an early end, with the team exiting in 5-6th place after falling to Team SMG and BIGG SCYTHE.
This recent acquisition also marks the reunion of the Sapphire roster with their former coach, Yuranun “0bi” Sangurang, who previously led the roster during the 2022 campaign. 0bi was appointed as the Esports Director for FULL SENSE a month before the organization signed his former team.
FULL SENSE Sapphire will be playing their first match under their new banner in VCT Game Changers APAC Open 2, scheduled to take place on June 1-11.
The roster of FULL SENSE Sapphire is as follows:
- 🇹🇭 Pornlapat “babytz” Wittayanan
