Former Complexity CS:GO player Will “RUSH” Wierzba has trialed with TSM’s VALORANT team, multiple sources told Upcomer Friday.
RUSH trials with TSM VALORANT
RUSH has played with the team over the past few days following the abrupt benching of youngster Sean “bang” Bezerra.
That said, he has not yet signed with the team, and the organization is yet to make a commitment for the 27-year old. If RUSH does not meet the TSM’s expectations they will likely move on to another trial.
RUSH brings a wealth of experience with him to VALORANT following his removal from Complexity’s CS:GO team. He announced on Sept. 3 that he would pursue opportunities in either CS:GO or VALORANT.
Officially a free agent and released from my contract with @Complexity. Thank you for everything, I really couldn't have asked for a better org during this COVID era. DM me for any inquires within Valorant or CS!

“Officially a free agent and released from my contract with Complexity,” RUSH tweeted. “Thank you for everything, I really couldn’t have asked for a better org during this COVID era. DM me for any inquiries within VALORANT or CS!”
He is one of the most decorated North American players in CS:GO. He played competitively for around eight years, teaming up with some of the best in the region. RUSH won a major championship in CS:GO with Cloud9 becoming the first North American team to earn the title since its inception.
TSM VALORANT’s future
TSM has the chance to qualify for the Last Chance Qualifier, which is set to begin next month. The LAN event will feature some of the best teams in the region that did not automatically ensure qualification to Champions, the biggest VALORANT event of the year.
TSM requires a North American team to win the ongoing VALORANT Championship Tour Masters event in Berlin, Germany. This will ensure qualification to the Last Chance Qualifier and grant the team one final chance to compete at the highest level this year.
TSM has made several roster changes this year with Bang being the most recent benching. Former TSM player Taylor “Drone” Johnson was moved to the inactive roster in July, as first reported by Upcomer, following a defeat to Noble in the VCT Stage 3 Challengers 1 event, which concluded on July 12.
TSM fields the following roster:
- James “hazed” Cobb
- Matthew “WARDELL” Yu
- Yassine “Subroza” Taoufik
- Aleko “Leviathan” Gabuniya
- bang (benched)
- Drone (benched)
