Tyler “Ninja” Blevins is perhaps best known as a streamer, but he has a presence in the esports scene as well. Ninja has had great success in esports in the titles Halo, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Fortnite. Now, Ninja seems to want to go pro with the new team in Valorant. He streams this game a lot, but now also participates in tournament competitions. Although he was mainly seen by the community as joining for fun, thanks to a surprise victory over the front door team on FaZe Clan, Ninja’s team made a big splash.

Ninja belongs to which team in Valorant?
Ninja’s Team Valorant operates under various names, including Time In and 100 Blifted. His current squad consists of the following players:
- Tyler “Ninja” Blevins
- Kurtis “Kurt” Gallo
- Gregory “Grego” McAllen
- Austin “Morgausse” Etue
Ninja, Morgausse and Grego are considered key members of the team. The trio previously played alongside Jaden “Vegas” James and Alexander “LeX” Deily. They have been playing with Kurt and Deni for almost two months now. This is also the team that brings the highest achievements of Ninja.
Twitter messages show that the members are being coached by professional CS player, Shawn “witmer” Taylor.
Can’t forget to credit @witmer (who’s Twitter is locked), he’s helping us with fundamentals every practice and improving at playing the game at a macro level. He’s as much of a part of the team now as we are.

Ninja and his Valorant team mainly compete in qualifiers and showmatch events. They do not belong to any esports organization.
The JBL Quantum Cup, the Ninja Team Invited Tournament, was the first notable official Ninja tournament to attend. The team was eliminated in the group stage with a 1-2 record, defeating FaZe Clan but losing to Team Envy and 100 Thieves. They were eliminated due to a lower score difference.
Who are Ninja’s teammates in team Valorant?
Ninja played Valorant with the team: Grego, Morgausse, Kurt and Dani. Most of these players are playing for reputable organizations in other esports.
Morgausse Formerly a professional Fortnite player, famously won the 2018 Fortnite Summer Skirmish. The win brought him $225,000 USD as he beat out more prominent names including Timothy “Bizzle” Miller, Thomas “72hrs” Mulligan. , and Turner “Tfue” Tenney.
Grego didn’t have any major wins but stood out as an Overwatch player for Cloud9 prior to the arrival of the Overwatch League. He tried his luck with Cloud9 in Apex Legends, but it didn’t last long. Grego was in the first Valorant test group, but not on any notable team so far.
Kurt made a big name in 2019 in Apex Legends, playing for T1 in North America. The team won many original tournaments, including the T1 x FACEIT Apex Legends Invitational. His activity in Apex Legends gradually decreased from 2020 and in June announced he would be playing for T1 Academy in Valorant. T1 disbanded the team in June after poor results.
Finally, Dani is not a strange name. He is a 21-year-old Palestinian Canadian streamer, but has no reputation in other esports.
Will Ninja go pro in Valorant?
Perhaps the answer is no. Ninja’s long-term plans with Valorant are currently unknown, but he makes a lot of money as a streamer. The chances of him being fully committed to esports again are very low. Ninja has been serious for Valorant over the past few months, but maybe this is only temporary before he streams more games again.
