TSM Academy player Brandon “bdog” Sanders is in discussions to join Luminosity Gaming’s VALORANT roster, multiple sources told Upcomer on Monday.
Bdog is known as one of the best duelists at the semi-professional level and has proven himself in lower tier tournaments alongside the rest of his teammates on TSM’s academy roster, which has been much more active than the main roster over the past few months.
Luminosity Gaming was searching for a duelist player since the departure of Diondre “YaBoiDre” Bond. He has since practiced alongside other North American players on FaZe Clan.
TSM Academy have looked relatively inconsistent recently with a Round 3 finish at Rival 1. During the event, TSM Academy lost to Zero MarksMen Black and Nemesis, two rosters that rank significantly lower than TSM Academy in terms of skill.
Statistically, bdog has been impressive for TSM Academy, however. Considering he is the star Duelist for the team, he has achieved an average combat score of 263.1 with 162.7 average damage per round, according to statistics provided by VLR.gg.
Luminosity could be making additional changes, also. As previously reported by Max “Purest” Katz Sentinel player Alex “aproto” Protopapas could also be heading out the door for next year’s roster. This would mark the second departure to the roster prior to the VALORANT Champions Tour 2022, which will begin in the latter stages of January.
Luminosity currently fields the following roster:
- Kaleb “moose” Jayne
- Will “dazzLe” Loafman
- Tanner “TiGG” Spanu
- Jared “mac” Schneider
