Valorant: Ska to Return When the ‘Time Is Right’

August 25, 2020 7:46 pm

Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham is a former CS:GO ELEAGUE Boston Major 2018 winner who currently plays for T1’s Valorant squad. He had taken a break from competitive CS:GO a couple of times before he switched to become a full-time streamer.

However, he announced his return to the competitive scene by resuming a professional career with Valorant. But things haven’t been fluid for the former CS:GO, player.

T1 announced that they will play without him in the upcoming Pop Flash Ignition Series tournament, which is set to begin on August 26.

T1 has a very talented roster, full of venerated CS:GO stars like Braxton “brax” Pierce, who has been playing Valorant alongside Skadoodle. However, the team has been struggling since the start of Valorant’s Ignition Series.

Ska might be out of the competitive Valorant roster for a while

Skadoodle Latham announced the news on Twitter. He explained how he is trying to expand his agent pool and also that he will join the roster when the “time is right.”

The former pro has been playing primarily with Sage. And even though Ska has been a passive player since his CS:GO days, it’s just not working in Valorant.

Hence, Ska has now vowed to expand his agent pool and spend more time getting familiar with the agent Meta in the game.

“In the meantime am going to be practicing with other teams to stay sharp. I’ll be back soon and better than ever.”

Ska’s position in the team has been a matter of debate for a few weeks now. The team has failed to perform, and it needs a stronger roster to compete in subsequent tournaments.

T1’s coach Daniel “fRoD” Montaner will probably play in Ska’s place at the Pop Flash, as he did in the previous tournament. The Pop Flash event kicks off on August 26.
