The former CS: GO champion had received a ban from Valve back in 2014 following match-fixing allegations. Subsequently, the player joined the T1 Valorant roster, where he proved to be invaluable during the early days of the game. However, due to a decline in his performance, T1 let him go.

And now, Brax is off to a fresh start at the hands of TSM. The team will be preserving its original Sentinels lineup, with Brax as the sixth man on the roster. However, the team already features two duelists, Taylor “drone” Johnson and Matthew “WARDELL” Yu. With Brax in the mix, looks like one of them might have to alter his role.

TSM plans on attempting a comeback by leaving no stone unturned. With Brax as the sixth-man, the roster is now ready to take risks and take on challenges.
