TSM bench reltuC | VALORANT NEWS

Stephen “reltuC” Cutler has been benched by TSM, the organization has announced.

TSM’s results have been undeniably poor in 2021. The organization has failed to reach the heights of 2020, qualifying for 2 Challengers events, #3 in Stage 1 and #2 in Stage 2, but not progressing to Masters through either of them, and frankly not coming close. Prior to Stage 2, Braxton “Brax” Pierce was brought in, but quickly found himself on the bench after just 1 open qualifier.

Recent struggles shouldn’t take away what reltuC has accomplished with TSM, though. Multiple Ignition Series wins and a First Strike finals appearance aren’t things to scoff at, and he’ll certainly be remembered for what he brought to the table for TSM.

According to the organization, reltuC will continue to stream for TSM while he explores his options. Rumours suggest that a new player will not be picked up and that Brax will be back in the lineup, along with some serious role swaps.

TSM now fields:

James “hazed” Cobb
Matthew “WARDELL” Yu
Yassine “Subroza” Taoufik
Taylor “drone” Johnson
Braxton “Brax” Pierce
