tex originally broke into the talk of top North American talent after replacing Dcop on the Equinox roster back in late January. After a fourth place finish in the NSG Winter Championship, the team failed to qualify for VCT North America on multiple occasions, which eventually led to tex and others announce their free agencies earlier this month. The day after, Equinox officially announced the disbandment of the roster.
For NRG, tex's addition comes just a day after they announced the release of Shanks. The roster has shown steady improvement since the team's conception, but the team has not yet achieved a top 4 finish in a tournament. The closest the team has gotten was a 5th-6th place finish in the main event of VCT North America Challengers 3, but a lower bracket loss to Gen.G kept the team from achieving their first ever top-four tournament finish.
