T1’s event comes a day after 100 Thieves announced that it would conduct its Valorant invitational on April 14. While neither organization has released rules for its events, T1 appears to be focusing their competition on its VALORANT team. 100 Thieves will have groups led by content creators.
Riot has remained tight-lipped about its official plans for the esports scenes in VALORANT. Nonetheless, two of the world’s most prestigious organizations see enough potential in it to hold events within 2 weeks of its closed beta release.
And it will be Cast by renowned esports host Puckett and former CS:GO caster Pansy; the Grand Finals of the event put Team Brax and Team Dizzy against each other in an epic rematch in which Brax and T1 teammate AZK walked away with the win.
T1’s Valorant team consists of the newly-acquired former professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players, Keven “AZK” Larivière, and Braxton “Brax.” Not much is known about any other players. Still, within the weeks, T1 might introduce more shining stars from other FPS esport titles like Apex Legends, Rainbow Six Siege, Call of Duty, or possibly other titles like League of Legends and Dota 2. Fans will have to wait until T1 discloses their plans for the team.
