T1 was one of the first organizations to enter Valorant and sign professional players even before the game was officially released. Ever since its arrival, the organization has had its fair share of problems. The lineup has had several changes over the period with minimal stability. According to a report by Upcomer, T1’s lineup is likely to replace one or two players.
Sam “DaZeD” Marine is set to depart after joining the team in October 2020. Alongside the in-game leader, the sources further suggest that Ha “Spyder” Jung-woo might as well depart the roster. The 22-year-old former Overwatch player had joined the Korean organization a couple of days after DaZeD’s arrival.
Following the conclusion of the Valorant Championship Tour: Masters 2 – Reykjavik, several teams are likely to overhaul their rosters to attain better results in the upcoming season. At present, it is not known whether T1 has been in contact with other professional players or not.
In February earlier this year, the inceptive duo of Braxton “brax” Pierce and Keven “AZK” Larivière also departed the roster while the former joined TSM in the next month. They had signed with the organization even before the game had officially been released. T1 has had a string of disappointing results for quite some time.
T1 secured a 7th-8th position in VCT 2021 NA Stage 2 Challengers 2 and couldn’t qualify for the NA Stage 2 Challengers Finals – the qualifying event for Stage 2 Reykjavik Masters. Even in Stage 1, T1 has had ordinary results. If the report is to be believed, active lineup of T1 will be down to three:
- Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham
- Timothy “autimatic” Ta
- Rahul “curry” Nemani
