TSM FTX allow bang to explore other opportunities
Sean “bang” Bezerra has shared a tweet in which he announced that he is being benched “for the time being.” The 17-year-old may seek other opportunities on the VALORANT scene for the time being.
TSM FTX acquired bang in late June of 2021. The youngster’s career in VALORANT started off with Phoenix1 before the organization later run into troubles in regards to paying the players. bang left Phoenix1 in October of 2020 and was picked up by Serenity in December. His VALORANT journey continued as he then joined OTW Esports in April for a short 4-day stint with the team. That was bang‘s last team before finally given the opportunity to play under the TSM FTX banner.
TSM FTX had a very disappointing 2021 in the VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT). Having failed to qualify for Masters 1 and Masters Reykjavik was a big blow. At VCT Stage 3 Challengers 2 with bang on board, the team looked sharp after winning the event following a triumph over FaZe Clan in the grand final. Next, in the Stage 3 NA Playoffs, TSM was dropped into the Lower Bracket by Team Envy. There, Rise reigned supreme as TSM was one of the first two teams dropped from the event alongside Luminosity.
TSM’s lackluster performances throughout 2021 paired with bang‘s benching hint at a roster re-build. With no way for TSM FTX to make it to the Champions event at the end of the year, the team may direct their focus into a team overhaul to be a bigger threat for the 2022 VCT season.
