TSM have completed their full VALORANT roster for the 2022 VCT season with a pair of new additions in FaZe Clan’s Corey “corey” Nigra and Immortals’ Daniel “Rossy” Abedrabbo, the organization announced on Thursday.
“Excited to be apart of the TSM family!!” Corey said on Twitter. “Would like to give FaZe Clan a big thank you for everything they’ve done for me since the switch to VALORANT. LETS GET THIS BABY.”
The duo joins Matthew “Wardell” Yu, Yassine “Subroza” Taoufik and Aleko “LeviathanAG” Gabuniya, who had a disappointing 2021 despite some initial, early success. Coaches Andrew “aRubyz” Seewer and Austin “Apex” Copeland will also remain with the organization, having been promoted from TSM Academy to head coach and assistant coach, respectively.

TSM continue VALORANT roster moves
TSM tried various VALORANT roster changes throughout 2021, but that ultimately led to the majority of the team’s founding members leaving. Even newer players, such as Sean “bang” Bezerra and Braxton “brax” Pierce, failed to leave their mark on the team.
Going into 2022, TSM will make another attempt to bring the organization back to VALORANT glory. Having failed to qualify for VCT 2021 Masters 2: Reykjavík, Masters 3: Berlin, the Last Chance Qualifier and therefore Champions, TSM fell a long way after their strong displays at the tail end of 2020. With star VALORANT players like Wardell on the roster, TSM had looked like a team that should have done better on paper — but their roster didn’t click when it mattered most.

TSM will begin their 2022 VALORANT season at the end of January with the Stage 1 Challengers qualifiers followed by the main event, which runs from Feb. 11 through March 27. Only the top two teams of the full twelve will make it to Stage 1 Masters.
