After missing a global VALORANT event for the first time, LOUD has decided to part ways with Qck ahead of Split 2.

After his FURIA stint that lasted two years, Gabriel "qck" Lima joined LOUD for VCT 2024 replacing Erick "aspas" Santos.

Qck had big shoes to fill and came to VCT Americas 2024 Kickoff, he and LOUD dominated the competition. In a group alongside Sentinels, Leviatan and 100 Thieves, they went 4-0 to secure playoffs.

Despite the heavy opposition from Evil Geniuses, LOUD prevailed, qualifying for Masters Madrid.

In the tournament, LOUD lost their opening game to Gen.G but won over EDward Gaming and FunPlus Phoenix to qualify for the playoffs.

LOUD lost to their domestic rivals Sentinels and then to Paper Rex to get eliminated from the tournament, Qck was heavily criticized for his underperformance during the team’s Madrid run.

The team struggled to find form and consistency after returning to VCT Americas 2024 Split 1 regular season going 0-3.

They defeated Sentinels and G2 Esports to edge out Evil Geniuses for the playoffs spot. Qck performed exceptionally well in both the series, re-igniting the hopes of the fanbase.

Unfortunately, 100 Thieves dominated them in the playoffs’ knockout game, eliminating them from the competition.

With the loss, LOUD was eliminated from Masters Shanghai contention, missing their first global VALORANT event since the team’s inception in 2021.

The team released a statement regarding the team’s underperformancem, you can watch it below.
