DaZeD has linked up with the bulk of his former iBUYPOWER compatriots on T1's VALORANT roster
A number of top tier organizations have been shifting around talent in VALORANT, seeing Sam "DaZeD" Marine joining the iBUYPOWER reunion tour on T1, as well as the trio of Jason "neptune" Tran, Jason "jmoh" Mohandessi, and Andrew "ShoT_UP" Orlowski filling the gaps in the Immortals roster.
DaZeD joins the T1 roster to fill one of the holes left when Austin "crashies" Roberts and Victor "food" Wong parted ways with the team. DaZeD participated in three CS:GO Majors with iBUYPOWER before being banned by Valve for matchfixing. He returned to activity in late 2017 with GX and subtLe/SKDC, playing his last official in ESEA Advanced Season 29.
Four iBUYPOWER members who played in that infamous match are now suiting up for T1 VALORANT, while the last, Joshua "steel" Nissan, is on the books for 100 Thieves. Rounding out the T1 roster is Ha "Spyder" Jung-woo, a former DPS player for the Florida Mayhem in the Overwatch League.
Immortals also had holes to fill after Peter "Asuna" Mazuryk and Quan "diceyzx" Tran left to join 100 Thieves alongside steel, Nick "nitr0" Cannella, and Spencer "Hiko" Martin. Their third hole was more recent, as Yannick "KOLER" Blanchette jumped ship to join Damian "daps" Steele and his newly formed NRG side earlier this week.
With the changes the VALORANT lineups for Immortals, T1, and NRG are now:
Immortals will participate in the Nerd Street Gamers x Renegades Invitational that is set to begin on Saturday. Three invited teams remain unannounced, so it is possible that T1 and/or NRG will also be in attendance.
We're excited to introduce @neptunensic, @JmohGG, and @shot_upcs to the Immortals VALORANT squad!— Immortals (@Immortals) October 13, 2020
