The announcement was revealed following the departure of In “Creative” Moo-keun (인무근) from the coaching staff a day prior. As a new coach for the Thai squad, B0i will be cooking up strategies together with Talon Head Coach Yuttanagorn “Zeus” Kaewkongyai whilst the team is currently competing in the VALORANT Champions Tour 2023: Pacific League.
Before coming to the Pacific League, B0i is well known for competing in the North American scene, most notably during his time in 100 Thieves where the team reached the grand finals of VCT 2021 North America’s Last Chance Qualifier. He also spent time on the Built By Gamer squad with current 100T player Sean “bang” Bezerra and even saw himself on the TSM Academy roster.
With an additional boy in the squad (as the team also has Panyawat “Sushiboys” Subsiriroj and Jittana “JitBoyS” Nokngam), Talon Esports surely will rely on B0i bringing his previous North American experience and use it to help bolster the squad. Currently, the team is sitting at a 0-1 record after Team Secret’s upset against them in the first week of matches in the VCT 2023 Pacific League.
