In VALORANT’s early days, TSM were the dominant force in North America.
Their roster was consistently picking up titles and developing into superstars of the esport. With the arrival of the VALORANT Champions Tour in 2021, TSM were ready to prove themselves as the best in the region and, perhaps, the world.
But, just as the VCT was getting into full gear, TSM’s performances inexplicably imploded. They were unable to qualify for any significant tournaments, they missed out on every international LAN and fell a mile adrift of the pack.
The year 2020 may have been littered with tournament victories, but 2021 was nothing short of a disaster.
This is The Rise and Fall of TSM VALORANT.
In April of 2020, the release of Riot Games’ new FPS title VALORANT sent shockwaves of excitement throughout the competitive gaming community.
People were racing for beta keys, and esports pros were abandoning the likes of Counter-Strike and Overwatch in favor of VALORANT, while organizations scoured the emerging scene for rosters.
In May, just a month after the VALORANT beta released, Team SoloMid joined the pack of major North American orgs flocking to the new game.
