TSM bench reltuC

Written By    Germanicus  -  share on

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

Stephen “reltuC” Cutler (Benched)

Taylor “Tailored” Broomall (Coach)

THANK YOU, LITERALLY THE PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR HOLDING TSM BACK. I feel like TSM will sign jcStani and they should, lets see how that goes
2021-05-03 23:24
you dont know what you talking
2021-05-04 01:21
they have brax? why would they pick up jcstani. what lmao. Also if you think cutler was the sole reason for TSM losing you are delusional.

Brax isnt an IGL whereas jcStani is an experienced IGL who lead a top team to victory consistently. He also has a lot of experience on smokes another position brax has no history of. The most likely situation that will happen is hazed moves to controller and either him or brax picks up the IGL role. Another possibility is that one of those two will move to sova, drone back to duelist, and subroza (the original IGL for TSM) picks up the position again

hazed is an igl dawg, 6 man rosters are sticky, most likely wont happen
2021-05-04 08:35
brax used to be igl for t1
2021-05-04 09:43
roza also wasnt the original igl it was first hazed, then switched to cutler, then roza, then back to cutler, then hazed.

There are many things incorrect in this reply. 1) yes Stani can IGL but he prefers not to, this has been stated in his PlatChat interview, and IMT performed better with an IGL different to Stani. 2) Brax does indeed have a history of playing Omen for T1. 3) Hazed was the original IGL for TSM, not Roza. Lastly, can we stop assuming where a F/A player will go?

There are many things incorrect in this reply. 1) In Stani's F/A tweet he says he is open to IGLing. 2). Brax hasn't IGLed since T1 picked up Dazed before First Strike and hasn't played omen since even longer (despite omen no longer being meta to begin with). 3) Roza was their IGL at TSM's peak during the Ignition series 4)My reply was mainly about what TSM would do other than picking up Stani.

Culter was igl on TSM peek, roza was only igl after they lost to 100T in the finals and he was only one for a month.
2021-05-04 18:27
Roza was literally IGL when they beat SEN in the grand finals for the faze invitational wdym lol
