After leaving 100 Thieves, the VALORANT team from T1 signed The Mexican duelist Johann “seven” Hernandez for the VALORANT Champions Tour 2022 announced the team on Monday. At 100 Thieves, he was a replacement during his time with the organization. Now he has a chance to start with a team trying to retool for the 2022 VCT season. This signature presumably fills the Duelist position, which was left blank after Timothy “autimatic” Ta broke up with T1.
LISTEN. WE REALLY FEEL LUCK, OKAY? 🍀.

Seven’s way to T1
Before T1, seven were playing for an organization in his competitive VALORANT esports career that was 100 Thieves. He was accepted into their squad as a young prospect who could help the team after a semi-final at the VCT Stage 3 Masters Berlin. As a substitute duelist, he never got playing time over the experienced squad and spent his time as the only substitute. After these three months, 100 Thieves could not reach the same high as at the Masters Berlin and could not qualify for the VALORANT Champions by losing in the North American Last Chance Qualifier. Given the downturn the team has suffered, they revised their roster and seven had the opportunity to leave.
He joins another team looking for a poor stretch, albeit a longer one, to recover. With T1, however, he can start as her duelist after the last departures. After three months of sitting and watching, seven have the chance to play for T1’s VALORANT squad in 2022.
The future of T1
After this signature, T1’s list now consists of:
- Zander “thwifo” Kim
- Joshua “stole” Nissan
- Rahul “Curry” Nemani
- Anthony “Dawn” Hagopian
- Johann “seven” Hernandez
Unless there is a replacement or trade in the works, T1 has completed its new roster for 2022. Now Curry and Dawn are just two players from last year’s roster. Given how T1 ranks against 100 Thieves, former player Orgs Steel and Seven have a good opportunity to climb back up the NA VCT rating.
