HyP is now a free agent after leaving Ninjas in Pyjamas.

The former Overwatch League pro and VALORANT made this know on Tuesday. It could be recalled that he had a stint with a Swedish team in July after he and his teammates from HypHypHyp couldn’t get signed up by an organization.

So far, HyP competed in three tournaments from the Ignition Series for NiP. The tournament was hosted in collaboration with Riot Games. Hyp recorded a top-four finish in each of the games played.

He was knocked out in the semi-finals of the WePlay! Invitational, LVL Clash 2, and BLAST Twitch Invitational.  The tournaments were eventually won by VALORANT, which is touted as the best in Europe. After adding Sayf to their roaster in September, Hyp was relegated to the bench alongside Fearoth.

Before being released by VALORANT, who further won the Ignition Series, HyP featured in Overwatch‘s competitive scene sometimes ago after the release of Blizzard’s ambitious FPS game in 2016.

He later featured in the second season of the Overwatch League after joining Paris Eternal. The team ended in a disappointing 14th spot, forcing HyP to resign from the competitive scene and joined VALORANT in April.

He was part of the first Overwatch League players who made the switch alongside 2019 MVP sinatraa.

Now that he is a free agent, he will be on the lookout for a new team to compete in Riot’s FPS game.  He would be delighted to be on the roaster of a team before the beginning of November. The qualifiers of the European First Strike tournament kicks off next month.

According to reports, the First Strike: Europe open qualifiers takes place between November 9 and 22. The group stage has been scheduled to hold between December 3 to 6.

The tournament, which is the first to be officially hosted by  Riot Games, will be various regions like North America and South Korea.
