Ryan “Shanks” Ngo is a current professional player for Rise. Before signing with Rise, Shanks played for NRG’s Valorant roster for a few months before leaving due to an underwhelming exit during the VCT: Challengers 3 tournament. He was supposed to focus on content creation and streaming but was picked up by Rise just a few days later after leaving NRG.
Rise Shanks got his IGN “Shanks” from an anime character from One Piece of the same name. He mainly plays Jett and Skye for Rise and has a more aggressive fragger role. He still regularly streams on Twitch and is known for his iconic high-pitched laugh.
