Wardell ‘indecisive’ about Valorant’s future after leaving TSM

Former TSM member Matthew ‘Wardell’ Yu has said his future in competitive Valorant is “undecided” at the moment as he feels “free” as a content creator.

Wardell answered questions from followers Instagram stories and told a fan who asked if he would join a team that his future was “kind of undecided at the moment.”

The former TSM player went on to say that he is currently focused on training and streaming and feels free as a “content creator”.

Wardell's post on his Instagram story Wardel has been a popular streamer playing Valorant almost since the game’s release

Wardell’s time as a Valorant pro may be over

Wardell was one of the first Valorant pros to be added to a team in May 2020 when TSM announced its entry into the Riot Games title.

Wardell and TSM would find success in 2020, taking first place in a series of tournaments and taking second place in First Strike: North America, the first major tournament hosted by Riot.

But his fate and that of TSM changed as the team failed to qualify for VALORANT Champions Tour tournaments until Stage 3, the final stage of the circuit. The team ended the year in disappointment after finishing 7th-8th in the VCT Stage 3 Challengers Playoffs, lacking enough round points to enter the Last Chance qualifier for Valorant Champions.

TSM and Wardell did not qualify for the VCT 2022 Stage 1 Challengers due to the former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player retiring from the team on March 23.

Wardell hasn’t seen international or domestic LAN competition since joining Valorant, and his last tournament win with TSM was a Knights Monthly Gauntlet in February 2022, where the team defeated a new roster of 100 Thieves.

Wardell averages around 5,500 viewers and plays Valorant 92% of his airtime on his Twitch account. according to streams charts.

The Canadian sniper could be following the path of recently retired Spencer “Hiko” Martin, who has opted for content creation and steaming about professional awards. But so far its future is uncertain
