T1 has made some significant changes to its VALORANT roster ahead of the OFF//SEASON

T1 has announced the signing of Kevin "xccurate" Susanto, Ham "iZu" Woo-joo, and Lee "k1Ng" Seung-won to its VALORANT roster today.

Soon after VCT Champs in Los Angeles, T1 had announced the departure of three players - Munchkin, Ban, and iNTRO.

What is the T1 VALORANT roster?

The T1 VALORANT roster after the recent signings looks as follows:

  • Son "xeta" Seon-ho 
  • Ha "Sayaplayer" Jung-woo
  • Lee "Carpe" Jae-hyeok 
  • Ham "iZu" Woo-joo
  • Lee "k1Ng" Seung-won 
  • Kevin "xccurate" Susanto

Xccurate is a former Counter-Strike Global Offensive professional player who has an extensive record in Valve’s FPS. He is also popular as Paper Rex Forsaken’s brother in VALORANT. He brings with him years of experience having competed in CS:GO alongside some of the best players in the world. However, VALORANT is a drastically different game compared to CS:GO and there will be a period of adjustment.

Meanwhile, iZu joins T1 esports from Jadeite, a Japanese VALORANT team that has proven to be one of the best in the region. Jadeite finished second in the VALORANT Challengers 2023: Japan Split 2. They lost 2-3 to SCARZ in the Grand Finals, a match that was a treat to watch regardless of the final result.

And last but not least, we have k1Ng who joins T1 esports from Gen.G. Gen.G finished 4th in the Pacific League before falling short in the Last Chance Qualifier where they lost to Team Secret. Gen.G finished 3rd in the Pacific Last Chance Qualifier thereby being unable to make it to VCT Champs in Los Angeles. The 23-year-old is possibly the most experienced VALORANT player among the three new additions. He has previously played on teams such as Vision Strikers (later DRX) before moving on to Gen.G.

What is T1 VALORANT’s potential in the new season?

With the roster packed with firepower and potential, there is no doubt no team will take this roster lightly. The likes of Xeta, Sayaplayer, Carpe have proven themselves at the very highest levels of other FPS titles. Xcurrate brings with him more than a decade of experience in CS:GO. 

T1’s performance in the last season was disappointing for the team’s fans who were expecting a much better performance. The Pacific team finished 9-10th in the VCT Tokyo Masters and a similar 9-12th place finish at VCT Champs Los Angeles.

The VCT Champs Los Angeles was the final official VCT event of 2023. Riot has already announced at least 40 OFF//SEASON events all over the world before the teams get together for the new season.
