The North American player joins the Pacific side next year.
SOUTH KOREA – T1 have announced the signing of American player Daniel “Rossy” Abedrabbo. The 20-year-old will make his first appearance for the team next month at the AfreecaTV VALORANT LEAGUE, having been included as part of the starting lineup. Rossy becomes the import player for the team heading into the next season and expands the team to a seven-man roster.
T1 underwent a slew of changes in recent times, with a rebuild around Son “xeta” Seon-ho, Ha “Sayaplayer” Jung-woo, and Lee “Carpe” Jae-hyeok. Lee “k1Ng” Seung-won, Ham “iZu” Woo-joo, and Kevin “xccurate” Susanto were integrated into the lineup in September before Rossy came into the picture.
Since entering the VALORANT scene in 2021 with Immortals, Rossy has been a dynamic presence, moving between various North American teams such as TSM, FaZe Clan, Turtle Troops, and several mixed teams over the past three years.
Initially, no plans were revealed about how T1 plan to utilize their seven-man roster, but now it has been announced that Rossy alongside Kevin “xccurate” Susanto will become part of the starting five. The absence of the Indonesian player from T1’s recent appearances in the KCX3 showmatch and the TEN VALORANT Global Invitational was attributed to visa issues, specifically the Schengen and Korean visas.
Nonetheless, it remains unknown which member of the team will step aside to accommodate the two non-Korean players.
xccurate and Rossy will have their debut under the historic T1 banner at the upcoming AfreecaTV VALORANT League on December 5-10 in Seoul, South Korea.
