The Indonesian Controller has left the team on mutual agreement and has now entered free agency.
INDONESIA – Alter Ego Celeste have announced the departure of Risalma “oreopheliaa” Agnia from the team with a short statement on Instagram, bidding farewell to one of their founding members as well as Alter Ego-benched player Lastiko “Moji” Reyanick.
The news, which comes as a surprise for many, at the same time brings to an end her three-year association with the squad, which began in 2019 when the original Celestè Esports roster was formed in Valve’s FPS. One year later, the team announced their switch to VALORANT, with oreopheliaa, three other Celeste CS members, and Nurul “Ayumiii” Aini making it into the lineup.
Orepheliaa has been on Alter Ego’s books since the former Celeste Esports squad signed with the organization in March last year. She took part in 11 female tournaments with the Celeste roster, in which the team won 10 of them including all four Game Changers Open this season.
More recently, Alter Ego Celeste managed to become the first team to qualify for VCT Game Changers APAC Elite after accumulating more than enough circuit points, escaping the overtime and last chance qualifier process alongside Bren Esports Victress from the Philippines.
The departure of one of AEC’s founding members comes as a shock to many, given that the Indonesian squad is arguably the heavy favorites heading into the US$35,000 tournament to snatch the coveted VCT Game Changers Championship berth and represent the APAC region in Berlin, Germany, this November.
Alter Ego Celeste will look to lock down a new fifth player ahead of the team’s most significant campaign to date.
After oreopheliaa stepped down, Alter Ego Celeste are left with:
- 🇮🇩 July “Eisberg” Kusuma
- 🇮🇩 Odella “enerii” Abraham
- 🇲🇾 Nurul “Ayumiii” Aini
- 🇮🇩 Nabila “nabbsky” Sulthana
