T1 welcoming Xeta!
This is a shock news for most as the team,
Because the chemistry of C9B was amazing and translated well on the server.
Last night after the inaugural match of the season for Cloud9 Blue,
There was announcement related to Son “Xeta” Seon-he with head coach Yoon “Autumn” Eu-ddeum
They have departed from Cloud 9 blue and will joining T1
Then, Rahul “Curry” Nemani would now fill in as the fifth for C9B instead of Xeta for the remaining matches in the VCT NA stage 2 challengers.
This sent shockwaves across the community
As we know that Xeta was an integral part of C9B since joining the team back in January of 2021
After a brief stint on C9 Korea Valorant team along with coach autumn.
He was part of their NA LCQ winning roster with Vanity, Leaf, Xeppa, and Mitch
Moreover, he has a solid run in the First Valorant Champions
And we can say that he is one of the best if not the best NA teams in the current VCT season.
This can be the evident in the first VCT NA challengers as C9B was undefeated in the group stage winning against teams like the Guard, Xset, 100 thieves, Luminosity, and EG,
Falling to the youngsters of The Guard who then went on to win the whole event beating C9B and Optic 3-0
At that moment, Xeta was the key player in the success of C9B, who is arguably the best sova player in NA right now and a valuable initiator.
Though the reason behind the move is unclear It is speculated
As the South Korean super giant having a legendary LoL team T1 is eyeing an all-Korean Valorant team and might contest next year in Korea.
