According to a report from Upcomer's George Geddes, Version1 Version1 North America Rank #11 is closing in on a deal that would bring Chad "Oderus" Miller to the team from the Pioneers Pioneers North America Rank #25 .
Version1 have been without a fifth player since Cloud9 Blue Cloud9 Blue North America Rank #4 acquired in-game leader Anthony "vanity" Malaspina just over a week ago. The team looks to bring in Oderus to fill in the currently vacant in-game leader position. Naturally, the Pioneers have reportedly begun their own search for a replacement as well.
According to the report, this deal has been underway for some time. Should the move be finalized, Oderus will compete with Version1 in the Last Chance Qualifier for a spot at Valorant's final major event of the year.
Version1 have been absent from tournaments since Stage 3 Challengers 2, where they finished 7th-8th. Should Oderus join Version1, it will be the first time the team has added a player to their roster since Maxim "wippie" Shepelev joined the team in late April for the Stage 2 Challengers finals.
