TSM fails to qualify for 2022 VCT NA Challengers 1

TSM lost in the lower bracket of Saturday’s VALORANT Champions Tour Qualifier 2 against Built By Gamers and failed to qualify for the 2022 VCT North America Challengers 1. After a turbulent 2021 season in which they experienced both high peaks and bad tracks, they failed to qualify for champions. Hoping to get back in shape in 2022, this loss leaves TSM out of the first major NA tournament of the 2022 VCT season.

A misstep for TSM to start 2022

In this second qualifier for Challengers 1, the first group held many well-known organizations for fans of VCT in 2021. These teams included FaZe Clan, T1, Luminosity and Rise Gaming that TSM could face on their way to qualification. With two new players Daniel “Rossy” Abedrabbo and Corey “corey” Nigra joining their roster, the team had to win against good teams to prevail. Unfortunately, after winning their first match and watching FaZe Clan fall into the bottom bracket, they lost a close match 2-1 to Ghost Gaming. The same team that sent FaZe to the bottom bracket did the same at TSM.

In the lower group, meanwhile, TSM fought for a place in the qualifiers. They progressed ahead of T1 and FaZe Clan as they lost in the second round of the lower bracket. But in the last game of Saturday’s games, they fell to Built By Gamers and failed to qualify. To add insult to injury, Built By Gamers fielded a substitute familiar to TSM. Inactive teammate Sean “Bang” Bezerra stepped in for BBG and helped them win 2-0. Bang’s performance in their matchup showcased his talent, leading the lobby in KAST (90%) and assists (15).

This loss means TSM will not return to the 2022 VCT NA scene until Challengers 2 qualifies. Stage 2 of the VCT and subsequent North American qualifiers begin in May.
