According to reports from George Geddes of Upcomer and Ryan Friend of Rush B Media, TSM TSM North America Rank #8 are set to officially bench Braxton "brax" Pierce, with Sean "bang" Bezerra lined up as the team's incoming fifth.
After being benched by T1, brax saw a return to competition through TSM, becoming the team's sixth man prior to the benching of Stephen "reltuC" Cutler. During his two-month tenure with TSM, brax saw only modest impact in the server, playing Killjoy and Cypher during the four matches he played with TSM.
Set to replace brax is bang, formerly of On The Way On The Way Inactive . Through strong performances in the lower levels and the Challengers qualifiers, bang has established themselves as a rising player in the North American scene at just 17 years of age. On Raze, bang became one of the rising stars of the region, consistently topping the leaderboard in Stage 2.
