Valorant Champions Tour Stage 2 action continues as roster changes keep coming. One of North America’s well-known organizations, TSM, announced Braxton “brax” Pierce as the sixth player of its Valorant roster.
After parting ways with T1 in February, brax was among the notable players in the market, and his name has been mentioned with several different teams recently. However, brax’s joining TSM rumor popped off before the official announcement was made.
Unlike unusual Valorant squads, TSM will follow the footsteps of Team Heretics featuring a six-man roster. Even though it hasn’t been announced yet, it’s likely that brax will share the spot with hazed.
TSM’s Valorant journey began in January magnificently. The team put an embargo on early tournaments in North America, along with Sentinels, and became one of the best teams in the region. However, things didn’t go well for them in the last tournaments. After the meta and dynamics altered the game, TSM started to struggle in the tournaments. Lastly, the team failed to qualify to Valorant Champions Tour Masters 1, which was a disappointment for fans and the organization.
Brax, on the other hand, was the first member of T1’s Valorant team, joining in March 2020. Despite being established in the early days of the game, T1 couldn’t find a serious success in the scene and made some changes.
TSM is now competing in the VCT 2021 Stage 2: Challengers 1 qualifier with its new member. The roster currently looks like this:
- Sptehen “reltuC” Cutler
- James “hazed” Cobb
- Matthew “Wardell” Yu
- Yassine “Subroza” Taoufik
- Taylor “drone” Johnson
- Braxton “brax” Pierce
- Taylor “Tailored” Broomall (Coach)
