Now, several months later, information has been revealed that Valorant has added a special player card alongside the recent 7.10 patch to immortalize Luie in the game forever.
The discovery was made by a popular Valorant data miner who goes by the name Shiick on Twitter. The person shared what the player card called ‘Luie’ will look like after the official announcement of him.
The design above clearly shows a purple jersey with Gizem’s name on it along with his player number 7. It also shows a bunch of other things like a Killjoy hat, a bunny ear helmet, and posters showing agents like Jett, Sova. , Raze and Killjoy.
This player card will be given to all players as a free reward when they log into the game with the following text accompanying the item, “This is for Luie” and “Celebrate the life of Gizem ‘Luie’ Harmankaya.”
However, the release date of Luie’s player card has not been revealed until now. So players must be patient and wait for this reward to arrive in the game.
Luie’s unfortunate death was confirmed on the 8th.th February by Unknownpros Female, the team she was a part of at the time. Her friends and those on the ground reported that she was trapped under rubble due to earthquakes that had caused massive destruction in the region.
This is a great decision made by Valorant to truly immortalize the late professional player in the same game she used to compete in and enjoy.
