Korea’s first ever VALORANT pro team has been formed. The team’s name is Vision Strikers (VS), and the meaning comes from being the ‘strikers’ who have insight into the future and insight into the unseen. As the Vision Strikers, they hope to leave the fans around the world in a trance with incredible plays.
