The VALORANT section run by the T1 has expanded to include another name. According to reports that have been appearing for some time now, the new player of the North American line-up has so far been associated with the CS:GO scene Victor “food” Wong.
The 23-year-old spent his entire esports career with Counter-Strike. And although he started in 2014, he sailed into the deep end in 2018, when he and his teammates from Team Singularity won the US WESG qualifier round and reached the ESEA Global Challenge semi-finals. This resulted in a transfer to eUnited, which allowed Wong to play at tournaments such as Intel Extreme Masters or ESL One. Nevertheless, at the beginning of 2020, the American player ended up in unemployment because his current employer finished supporting CS:GO as a discipline.
At that time, food joined Swole Patrol, with whom he was looking for a new organization. However, this search came to naught, so the 23-year-old player decided to try his hand with Riot Games, being the fifth person associated with Counter-Strike in the past who now joined T1 in VALORANT.
This means that only one chair remains free in the team, but at the moment it is not yet known who will take it. “I will not say that we are looking for a leader, because each of us can lead and it should be like that” the player explained just after the transfer in conversation with ESPN.
In this situation, the composition of the VALORANT division led by T1 is as follows:
- Braxton “brax” Pierce
- Keven “AZK” Larivière
- Austin Roberts ‘crashies’
- Victor “food” Wong
- Daniel “FRoD” Montaner – coach
