Team Heretics benched Ardis “ardiis” Svarenieks of Latvia for their upcoming VALORANT Champions Tour Challengers event due to health reasons.
Heretics signed Amine “Amilwa” Saidi of France to replace ardiis in the lineup on Sunday.
ardiis signed with the team in June.
On July 11, ardiis tweeted he has been in and out of the hospital over the last few weeks.
Team Heretics has struggled recently. After finishing in second at the VCT Stage 1 Masters in March, they failed to place in the VCT Europe Stage 2 Challengers 1 in April.
The team made some roster changes afterwards, including singing ardiis, but did not qualify for VCT Stage 3 Challengers 1 main event.
