The Thailand-based esports organization revealed in an announcement that their prodigal son undertook a required surgery on his wrist and will be rehabilitating for the time being.
“Due to the required surgery on his wrist, we, along with Patiphan, his parents, and his doctor, have collectively decided that staying in Thailand for rehabilitation will be the best course of action,” the Talon Esports announcement read.
“Health has and will always remain our number one priority, as we want all our players to develop long successful playing careers.”

This isn’t the first time Patiphan missed games due to his wrist as he took a break from VALORANT back in 2021 when he was still repping the X10 Esports jersey.
With their star duelist gone, Talon Esports will be fielding the following players in Brazil:
- Thanamethk “Crws” Mahatthananuyut
- Itthirit “foxz” Ngamsaard
- Panyawat “sushiboys” Subsiriroj
- Apiwat “garnetS” Apiraksukumal
- Jittana “JitboyS” Nokngam
