VCT Americas: World Champion Returns to LOUD for Stage 2

28. May 2024 by Valentin Pasetti

LOUD is poised to make a significant roster change for the upcoming Stage 2 of the VCT Americas 2024. According to reports, the team will re-sign Bryan “Pancada” Luna, a key player from their 2022 world championship roster, in a bid to reclaim their dominance in the competitive Valorant scene.

Pancada’s Triumphant Return

Pancada, who was instrumental in LOUD’s victory at the Valorant Champions 2022, is set to rejoin the Brazilian team. The move comes after a series of underwhelming performances in the current season. The addition of Pancada is seen as a strategic effort to strengthen the team’s lineup and boost their chances in the highly competitive VCT Americas league.

LOUD’s Struggles and Strategic Changes

Despite their historic success, LOUD has struggled to replicate their past performances this season. The team’s management is making decisive changes, including the potential re-signing of Pancada, to revitalize their roster and strategy. The change is anticipated to bring back the synergy and skill that led them to the top in 2022.

Pancada’s Journey and Impact

After leading LOUD to their world championship win, Pancada joined the North American team Sentinels. However, his stint with Sentinels was less successful, culminating in an early exit from the LOCK//IN São Paulo and a seventh-place finish in the VCT Americas 2023.

With his return to LOUD, Pancada has a chance to reclaim his status as one of the top controllers in the game.
