iNTRO started his VALORANT journey under BearClaw Gaming together with current DRX player Byung-Chul “BuZz” Yu. The roster left the organization after multiple instances of false promises and delays in salaries. He would later join the first iteration of Rio Companies’ VALORANT roster with decent results. After great results with Rio Company he was signed by DAMWON Gaming (Now known as DPLUS).
Unfortunately, the team was not able to compete against teams like Vision Strikers (Now under DRX) and F4Q. In early 2022 he was let go by DWG and had a short stint with the Japanese esports organization ENTER.FORCE.36 where he was let go after the roster did not qualify for Challengers Japan Stage 2. Before joining Gen.G he would have a short but successful period with REJECT during VCT East Asian Last Chance Qualifiers where they reached 5th-6th. Gen.G would later sign iNTRO for their partnered roster, but unfortunately, as the off-season progressed, Gen.G decided to field their sixth player Kim “Secret” Ha-jin in place of iNTRO and was eventually let go to make room for another player which Gen.G had worked on trying to acquire during the off-season.
BeomJun is best described as a prodigy who was highly regarded in the Korean VALORANT scene due to his impressive performance in the ranked ladder. While BeomJun has not played any officials even under T1, he was actively practising with the roster and was the substitute for Carpe while he was still competing in Overwatch League.
While this may seem like a minuscule change on the roster, sources have confirmed there were considered other changes as well which have been put on hold as of the time of writing.
T1 is now:
• iNTRO (6th player)
• Autumn (Head coach)
• Stunner (Coach)
