ZETA DIVISION have opened their doors to new members for their main VALORANT team.
JAPAN – ZETA DIVISION revealed today their search for new additions to their VALORANT squad for the VCT 2024 season. The Japanese powerhouse will be on the hunt for new players, coaches, and analysts with a clear goal to win the 2024 VCT Pacific League and claim the title at VALORANT Champions.
The application lists criteria including the ability to reside in South Korea for extended periods, fluent communication in Japanese, having achieved the Radiant rank, and upholding the values and standards of ZETA DIVISION. After an initial document review, shortlisted candidates will undergo interviews and tryouts before finalizing their agreements with the organization.
The application guidelines specify that individuals currently still under contract with another team should first secure approval from their existing teams prior to applying. Should they be considered for further selection, ZETA DIVISION will reach out to their respective teams first before advancing to subsequent stages.
ZETA DIVISION wrapped up VCT 2023 with two international appearances: one at VCT LOCK//IN and the other at VALORANT Champions Los Angeles, the latter they qualified by triumphing in the Pacific Last Chance Qualifier. The season wasn’t without its hurdles, as they could not secure a spot at VALORANT Masters Tokyo, not making it to the top three of the Pacific League — a particularly tough blow considering the event took place on their home ground.
With Koji “Laz” Ushida at the helm, ZETA DIVISION’s victory in the Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ) gave a glimpse of their Cinderella story in Reykjavík, especially with the reintroduction of Chamber. Despite this, their success from over a year ago could not be replicated, as their journey in Los Angeles was cut short after going up against FNATIC and NRG Esports, two teams regarded as some of the tournament’s strongest contenders.
Now they have plenty of time during the OFF//SEASON to reassess their roster and aim for their ultimate goal next year. The future of which players and coaching staff members will remain is still unclear. As per the VCT Global Contract Database, contracts for all six players and coach Motoyama “XQQ” Hibiki extend until the close of 2026.
