While we’re heading to VCT Challengers 3, T1 revealed another roster change on its social media accounts. Former CS:GO professional player Rahul “curry” Nemani has joined T1 Valorant as the fifth player.
Despite being established in the early days of Valorant, T1 hasn’t found any serious success yet. In the beginning of February, the team announced the departure of brax and AZK, and the addition of autimatic. However, the roster has failed once more in the open qualifier of Challengers 2.
This announcement was expected by most since curry participated in Challengers 2’s qualifier with the team, but it’s official now. Curry began his professional career in CS:GO in 2018, and although he didn’t attend any S-Tier tournaments, the 18-year-old player proved his talent in MDL matchups. In December, curry tweeted out and mentioned that he is open to offers in CS:GO and Valorant.
“Glad to be officially joining T1,” curry said on Twitter. “The amount of potential this roster has is insane! Tomorrow we are looking to start our journey to Masters. Can’t wait to show everyone what we have been cooking up!”
The qualifier for North America Challengers 3 will start on Feb. 25. This is the last chance for T1 to qualify for Masters 1. If the team fails once more, Skadoodle and his friends will have to wait until Stage 2.
