T1 executives announced JaCkky's departure on the club's Twitter account. He played in the first position. In this regard, the team will play at the first Major tournament in 2021 with a substitute player.
Recall that in the upper division of DPC 2021 Season 1 for Southeast Asia, the team took 3rd place and received an invite to the Wild Card, timed to coincide with ONE Esports Singapore Major 2021, where they will compete for an invitation to the Major championship.
It was not said why the team came to such a decision. Due to the fact that the team was left without a player, the squad will receive a penalty to the earned DPC points in the amount of 20%. This penalty applies to both the upcoming Major and DPC 2021 Season 1.
There is currently no exact word on who will replace JaCkky in the roster, but the esports industry and club fans are speculating that T1's pick will likely fall on 18-year-old Nyengnara '23savage' Tiramakhanon. So, for example, Vitaliy 'v1lat' Volochai considers such a move to be quite obvious. Recently, iLTW, who played for some time in OG, that 23savage may join Johan 'n0tail' Sundstein's team.
It was recently revealed that 23savage has become the first player to honestly make his way into the 12,000+ MMR league.
Estimated composition of T1
- Nyengnara '23savage' Tiramakhanon
