Autimatic Might Reportedly Leave Valorant and Return to CS:GO
He could be the next player to join the trend.
The North American CS:GO scene is witnessing some sort of a revival with competition returning to LAN after almost two years of primarily being played online. Multiple professional CS:GO players who had transitioned to Valorant are now slowly migrating back to the Valve shooter.
Ricky "floppy" Kemery was the first who shifted back to CS:GO after spending about five months playing Valorant earlier this year, this was followed by reports of Nicholas "nitr0" Cannella making his way back to Liquid, and the latest player who might be on the verge of making the switch is Timothy "autimatic" Ta.
This comes following a report by Upcomer which states that T1 as an organization is all set to try out players to replace autimatic on the Valorant roster.
Autimatic might return to compete in CS:GO again
The talented North American rifler and AWPer last played for Gen.G Esports for a little over a year. He then shifted to Valorant earlier this year in February. Unfortunately, his time with T1 playing Valorant did not bode well as the team failed to qualify for any of the VCT Master tournaments.
T1 made a lot of changes through the year to get that perfect roster together but nothing worked out for them. With the team unable to make it through to the Valorant Champions 2021, the organization considered a major overhaul and as per reports autimatic was on the chopping block.
With T1 set to try out replacements for autimatic, the 25-year-old is considering a move back to CS:GO. The Major winner will not be a part of the upcoming T1 practice sessions. Maybe this is why he has been witnessed streaming and playing CS:GO alongside Tarik "tarik" Celik, Jacky "Stewie2K" Yip, and others.
The North American region is undergoing a huge CS:GO roster shuffle. With multiple big organizations like Cloud9 teasing a return and Evil Geniuses having an incomplete roster, autimatic can certainly find a new team for the 2022 competitive circuit.
