The two former professional CS:GO players are best known in the Valorant scene as former members of T1 T1 North America Rank #11 's initial roster. Despite initially strong results in the Twitch Rivals Launch Showdown and the T1 x NSG Showdown, T1 have struggled to build rivalries against Team SoloMid Team SoloMid North America Rank #2 and Sentinels Sentinels North America Rank #1 .
Conversely, Envy have steadily ascended the power rankings of North America. The team found their catalyst event with the aforementioned Pop Flash Invitational, eliminating Dignitas Dignitas North America Rank #7 and Cloud9 Cloud9 North America Rank #3 in the playoffs to reach the grand finals of the tournament.
