North American esports organization T1 has announced line-up changes for VALORANT, welcoming steel. A day earlier, the 31-year-old Canadian player said goodbye to the 100 Thieves by freeing himself from his contract.
“I'm looking forward to starting a new chapter with T1 as in-game leader! I'm very excited to start working with a talented roster that shares my vision of winning as many trophies as possible,” steel said.
steel moved to VALORANT last fall. After a while, the Canadian joined 100 Thieves, in which he achieved considerable success, becoming the winner of First Strike North America, VCT 2021: North America Stage 2 Challengers 1, finishing second in the framework of VCT 2021: North America Stage 1 Challengers 3 and VCT 2021: North America Stage 3 Challengers Playoffs.
In addition, together with the steel team, he entered the TOP-4 at the JBL Quantum Cup and VCT 2021: Stage 3 Masters - Berlin. However, at the end of September, the player was put on the bench, while 100 Thieves started a massive restructuring of the roster, abandoning a number of key players and a coach.
In turn, T1 failed the summer segment of the season, having flown past Masters in Berlin and VALORANT Champions 2021. At the same time, the team will also face changes in the roster. According to rumors, autimatic is close to returning to the CS: GO discipline, where the Evil Geniuses organization is ready to accept him.
