North American esports organization TSM has announced a roster change for VALORANT, confirming their parting ways with Wardell. Recall that the 23-year-old Canadian cybersportsman was the founder of the original team, playing for the club since May 2020.
Today we mutually parted ways with Wardell. He decided not to move to Texas with the rest of the team and therefore decided to leave. Matt has been an important part of TSM since the very beginning and we wish him the very best in his future endeavours.
Wardell is the founding member of TSM's original VALORANT roster. Joining the team in May 2020, the 23-year-old Canadian esportsman has helped the team win multiple championships, including the T1 x Nerd Street Gamers Showdown, FaZe Clan Invitational, Pittsburgh Knights Invitational Gauntlet Series, VCT 2021: North America Stage 3 Challengers 2 and Knights Arena Monthly Gauntlet 2022: February, as well as being in the top three at the PAX Arena Invitational and First Strike North America.
It should be noted that the team performed at the last Knights Arena Monthly Gauntlet 2022: March without Wardell, whose place was taken by seven. However, the young Mexican is unlikely to become a replacement for Wardell, since the organization had previously abandoned the services of the cybersportsman, having transferred him to inactive.
TSM's current VALORANT roster is as follows:
- Juv3nile and aRubyz (coaching staff).
- seven (bench).
