One of Vision Strikers’ original players is making his return to the active roster. Kim “Zest” Gi-seok was labeled inactive and placed on medical leave in July of 2021. Now, Vision Strikers has announced that the medical leave is over and he is ready to compete with the team for VCT 2022.

Vision Strikers announced that Zest would be stepping down for medical reasons on July 13, 2021. That followed several series where he had not played, bringing up questions about his availability. The “arising health issues” were never further elaborated on, but it is exciting to see that he is now in good health and returning to the team.

The team is known for its number of players, going above the traditional five-player team. It was knocked down to five with the loan of Lee “k1Ng” Seung-won to ESportsConnected, but is now back up to six with the long awaited return of Zest.

What role he will play on the team is up in the air at this point, however. He recently played the Skye role in the National ShotVAL Pride tournament. That Agent has been shared between Kim “stax” Gu-taek and Goo “Rb” Sang-min. Previously with Vision Strikers, he played plenty of Sova. Rb has been slotted in to the Sova role, as well, with Kim “Lakia” Jong-min taking over when needed.

Whatever happens, it is safe to say the VALORANT world is more than glad to see him back in action. Real life issues and good health should always come first and it is great that he was able to triumph over the troubles he was facing. Vision Strikers will be a better team with him on the active roster once more.

Welcome back Zest and stay tuned to Run It Back for more breaking news as the VALORANT Champions Tour 2022 draws nearer!
