Valk Alliance Entering Rocket League – Who did they pick up?
First up to join the team was Maltese player Maverick “MKING” Agius. He is 17 years old, ranked at Champion 1 and started freestyling in Rocket League around 2 months ago. He doesn’t have any team experience as Valk Alliance will be his first. Due to not having team experience, he does not have any tournament experience either. But he’s definitely interested in representing his team in upcoming competitions. The main reason for him joining the squad was his desire to compete, and try and help Valk Alliance reach the potential it has.
On the other side of the squad we’ve got Jerome “JeromeInnit” Borg. He’s currently ranked at Diamond 3 / Champion 1 and is a very experienced mechanical player. Much like his teammate, Jerome hasn’t been part of any team, but emphasises that he’s determined to compete. The reasoning behind him joining Valk Alliance was that he was interested in playing side-by-side with MKING, both as content creators and competitors.
Valk Alliance entering Rocket League is quite a big deal. At the time of writing, the team is only affiliated with Fortnite, and Call of Duty due to VertX’s involvement. As some of you may know, those are some of the biggest esports on the island at the moment, and adding Rocket League onto their list of esports titles is going to help them grow rapidly. Aside from these games, the team has also expressed their interest in another popular title, FIFA. A solid choice for the team at their current stage and we can expect an announcement shortly.
With their plans of content creation, the team is surely on the right path, and we can only hope that we’ll be seeing more of them in the near future. With that being said, be sure to look out for some Rocket League tournament announcements soon!
