Braxton “swag” Pierce, also known as “Brax,” is a 25-year-old American former CS:GO player who had played for teams like iBUYPOWER, Cloud9, and many more. In March 2020, he announced his transition to VALORANT scene.

Brax started his VALORANT career with T1, but he tried out his luck with Team SoloMid in between March – June 2021. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out for him, and he returned back to T1 once more.

However, Brax couldn’t live up to the expectations since the beginning of his career, and yesterday, the talented player announced his retirement from the competitive VALORANT scene as he becomes a full-time streamer now.

In the announcement, Brax pointed out that he needed to take a step back from the scene and focus on his personal life to find his happiness again following the turbulent moments of his career in the last year.

While Brax announced his retirement from the game and became a content creator under T1, the organization announced his replacement after a short period by sharing a new post on their official Twitter account.

The organization welcomed the former XSET player Zander “thwifo” Kim to the roster as they wished luck Brax for his streaming career. “We’re excited to announce and would like to welcome, thwifo to T1 squad and the VALORANT team.” T1 announced.

Here’s the statement from Brax:

“As much as I love competing, I am super excited to get back on the stream grind and be with my awesome community again.

For those asking where I’ve been I’ve deemed it super necessary to take a step back and focus on my personal life and essentially finding my happiness again after a crazy year of ups and downs both in and out out of game.

Unfortunately, it came at the cost of competing on a professional level for now but I can’t say I regret it. I’m in a completely different head space from before and I absolutely love it.

I know this isn’t the route most of you wanted me to take but I hope you guys understand.

He continued:

“I want to thank Joe Marsh, Wawa, and all of T1 for making this transition so smoothly and I’m happy I can still represent this legendary org even if it’s through a different lens.

I’ll be streaming Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 4 PM CST starting next week. I’ll probably experiment with night streams as well.

Thank you for the continued support on this journey and I’m excited to take this to the next level and see where it goes because I know the opportunities are endless!”
