T1’s VALORANT rehearses without Seven
On March 19, North American and South Korean clubs T1 held training without the presence of Johann “Seven” Hernandez in their VALORANT squad.
T1 has only a few months to train with new players before the start of the NA VALORANT Champions Tour Stage Two, which is scheduled to start on May 5, 2022.
T1 is one of several big clubs that did not qualify for the first phase of VCT earlier this year. On the other hand, the operation of T1 is full of controversy. For example, team coach David “dd8” Denis was found to have been illegally communicating with his team during a match against TSM, leading to T1 losing the match and removing them from the session. Eliminate through disqualification. David “dd8” Denis was later suspended.
In February, the second qualifier kicked off with some easy wins for T1. However, they lost to both VIRTUOSO and Cosmic Divide, leading to the first departure for the group. This disqualified them for the competition organized by Riot for the next few months. T1 also participated in the Knights Monthly Gauntlet 2022: February, which ended on 25 February. They finished in the top eight but fell to the Renegades in the quarter-finals.
