The North American and South Korean organization T1 is in talks to sign 100 Thieves substitutes Johann “seven” Hernandez, several sources told Upcomer on December 13th. He still has to sign.
T1’s VALORANT team took several moves over the course of the off-season, with the team recently acquiring in-game leader Joshua “steel” Nissan from 100 Thieves.
T1 continued to train without Timothy “Autimatic” Ta, who is getting closer to switching back to CS: GO.
T1 tested several other players, including SoaR player Matthew “Cryocells” Panganiban. However, according to multiple sources, SoaR has set a high buyout for the player. Cryocells is also having a trial with XSET after Bryce “PureR” Lovell was removed from its grid, as reported by Upcomer.
The organization also practiced with Luminosity Gaming player Tanner “TiGG” Spanu, but he has continued to play with LG ever since.
What’s next for seven
Seven has yet to take part in the VALORANT Champions Tour. He joined 100 Thieves in late September after the team reached the top four at the VCT Masters in Berlin, Germany. However, Seven has not competed with the team since joining. 100 Thieves played during the VCT North America Last Chance Qualifier with former analyst Aaron “b0i” Thao.
Before Seven came to 100 Thieves, Seven was best known in the North American scene for his impressive performances in third-party tournaments with Teal Seam, a young, unsigned squad.
T1 had a disappointing season during VCT 2021. The North American team could not qualify for an international Masters event and missed a place in the champions. The team also did not achieve the required Circuit Points to qualify for the Last Chance Qualifier.
T1 will participate in the upcoming VCT, which will begin early next year.
