BLEED Esports have announced the signing of Vladan "VLDN" Radević, who joins the roster after a month-long trial. VLDN fills the last vacant spot on the international Couter-Strike roster following the departure of Laurențiu "lauNX" Țârlea.

VLDN joined BLEED Esports on trial a month ago and has since played 12 matches for the team, posting a solid 1.06 average performance rating. Over that stretch, VLDN has helped BLEED Esports win nine games and helped the team reach the finals of RES European Series #1.

Most recently, VLDN has also attended ESL Challenger at DreamHack Summer 2024: European Open Qualifier with BLEED Esports but failed to achieve much. BLEED Esports crashed out of the tournament in 17th-32nd place.

Still, despite the shaky showing in the recent qualifier, VLDN has proven his worth with his individual performances and earned a permanent contract with BLEED Esports.

VLDN's arrival comes amid BLEED Esports' roster rebuilding process. It started following a rough start for the new team, which hadn't accomplished much early into its existence.

BLEED Esports came together in January 2024 and have since not won or come close to winning a single Counter-Strike event until last month when they made the finals of RES European Series #1 with VLDN.

VLDN started his esports career in January 2021 with QSKE Gaming but made a name for himself with iNation who he joined in September the same year. With iNation, VLDN appeared at the Paris Major RMR.

Since leaving iNation in July 2023, VLDN has played for several stacks and served as a stand-in for ENCE at CAC 2023. In early 2024 played for 00 Nation across four PGL Major Copenhagen 2024: European Open qualifiers.

VLDN will debut for BLEED Esports on Thursday, April 4, during BetBoom Dacha Closed Qualifier when BLEED Esports will clash with BetBoom Team.

With the addition of VLDN, BLEED Esports now field a complete roster, including:

  • Hampus “hampus” Poser
  • Josef “faveN” Baumann
  • Tsvetelin “CeRq” Dimitrov
  • Cai "CYPHER" Watson
  • Vladan “VLDN” Radević
