T1 is currently restructuring the squad to attend the next Valorant Champions Tour. T1’s original Valorant roster, consisting of members involved in the iBUYPOWER match-fixing scandal from Counter-Strike, was considered one of the strongest teams in Valorant’s early days. Both AZK and brax changed to Valorant, with brax being the first professional player signed to an organization. T1 made several finals appearances in tournaments throughout the beta, before Riot Games announced the Ignition Series.
T1 lost to many reputable teams and organizations when they decided to invest in Valorant. Upon joining the Ignition Series, AZK, brax, and the rest of the team started to lose their rankings, due to losing many games when other organizations joined. T1 possesses a very passive gameplay.
Currently, both players are on the free transfer market. Both AZK and brax have played for semi-pro teams in the past, but given their form and reputation, perhaps some organizations will want to own the signatures of these two.
T1 is currently rebuilding from scratch. After the departure of coach Daniel “fRoD” Montaner, the team is looking to remake a new culture. T1 entered the VCT qualifiers with a new lineup, but lost to AndBox, losing their first North American VCT spot.
With AZK and brax leaving, T1 needs to recruit one more member. Let’s wait and see who will be the replacement.
