DaZeD has linked up with the bulk of his former iBUYPOWER compatriots on T1's VALORANT roster

DaZeD joins T1; NRG, Immortals, and 100 Thieves shuffle players in VALORANT

Who could have possibly seen this coming?

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:

United States Immortals United States T1
  • Amgalan "Genghsta" Nemekhbayar
  • United States Noah "jcStani" Smith

he stepped down after the other two non-iBP players that were on T1 before revealed to be talking shit about him via steam msg. He stepped down and they were basically an inactive team, those two went to Envy, and I guess when they signed DaZeD Ska came back since the other CS players still wanted him

also yeah shot_up is gonna get cut and retire like he did in cs lmao
