In December 2021, Munchkin departed the organization to search for new opportunities, but ended up returning at the start of 2022 hoping to continue their dominance from 2021. Unfortunately, the team ended up falling to ZETA DIVISION in the grand finals of the Stage 1 Challengers playoffs in late March, narrowly missing out on qualifying for the first international event of the year. Shortly after their runner-up finish, Munchkin departed Crazy Raccoon, marking the third time the former Overwatch League player has entered free agency in Valorant.

With Munchkin now an official member of T1, he will reunite with two former Cloud9 Korea members: coach Yoon "Autumn" Eu-ddeum (윤으뜸) and Son "xeta" Seon-ho (손선호) in North America.
