As the first two members signed to T1's Valorant roster in Spring 2020, brax and AZK were part of the infamous iBuyPower CS:GO team in 2014 that was eventually banned indefinitely from Valve sponsored tournaments for match fixing. Initially, T1 soared to the top of North American competition, only falling short to other powerhouse teams like Gen.G in the T1 X NSG Invitational Grand Finals, and TSM in the T1 X NSG Showdown.
But as the first Summer of North American Valorant competition continued, T1's performance began to waver as they made fewer and fewer top eight appearances. Recently, they suffered a defeat at the hands of Andbox in the first stage of VCT North America to miss qualifying for the main event.
With these two departures, T1 is now short one player of a five-man roster.
