A new giant has entered the battlefield of Rainbow Six Siege esports. T1, one of the most well-known esports organizations from South Korea, has announced that they will be venturing into Ubisoft's Rainbow Six Siege esports with a roster competing in the Asia Pacific region.
For fans of the game, the roster T1 has signed will be familiar: it is the full roster of OHHAMMA, who have been competing in the region for a while. The full roster is comprised of Kang "Vamos" Sang-eun, Lim "Yeti" Hun-sung, Kim "r3plicA" Jeong Woo, Kim "Demic" Daeyeong, and Cha "iLeven" Wonil. The Head Coach of the team is Hyunwoo "Howard" Jeong, who will be assisted by Junyoung "Revi" Shin and Varun "VBM" Bir Mohindra.
The first test for T1's new roster will begin coming weekend, as they'll compete in the Korean Open Cup where they'll play against SGA eSPORTS and StarRise.
