t1 valorant: T1 Valorant forfeits against TSM FTX in Champions Tour Open Qualifiers: T1 Valorant team just had to forfeit their matchup against TSM FTM due to unauthorized coach communication.
It all started when T1 coach David "dd8" Denis accidently typed in the ALL chat about a strat while the match was still in progress. As per the VCT rules, coaches cannot interact or give instructions to his/her players when the match is going on. The coach has to wait for a Tactical Timeout to do so.
The match was stopped at halftime during Map 2, at which point T1 had a 1-0 series lead and even a 8-4 lead on Icebox. TSM will move forward in the tournament and are set to face Akrew tomorrow. The winner of the match will face The Guard in the Grand Finale of the lower bracket.
