Sinatraa, Zombs, SicK and ShahZaM join Sentinels VALORANT roster


These days, not a week can pass without Valorant breaking a news. Recently, Competitive ranks and matchmaking system was finally revealed. On April 4, Valorant was breaking Twitch records with four million views. All this attraction is making players question whether or not they should stick to the game they are playing at the moment. The game is not even public yet, it is causing that much of a phenomenon. To top it off, big players have already stated that they will be moving to Valorant. Jared “zombs” Gitlin, Hunter “SicK” Mims, Shahzeeb “ShahZaM” Khan and Jay “Sinatraa” Won have announced their decisions in joining Sentinels’ Valorant team.

The 2019 Overwatch World Cup champion2019 and Overwatch League MVP with the San Francisco Shock Sinatraa took a decision to pursue other horizons.

“Straight up just lost passion for the game,” said Sinatraa. “Idk what the real killer was for me but maybe it was 2–2–2 lock maybe it was bans im not sure … i did not make this decision in 1 day it took a full month of non stop thinking every day and sleepless nights from being so stressed.”

It is pretty safe to say that a lot of hope from Blizzard had been placed onto his shoulders. He was considered by a lot of fans as the Overwatch League face for the future. His movement to Valorant is going to change the esports landscape for a long time. He will be playing with the Sentinels. They are an esports team that focuses heavily on Apex Legends, Fortnite, Hearthstone, and now Valorant. Fortnite world champion Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf is also playing for the Sentinels.

SicK and ShahZaM are former CS: GO pro players that decided to join the Valorant adventure with Sentinels. Zombs was, like Sinatraa, an Overwatch player but he decided to switch to Apex Legends when joining Sentinels. Another game change from Zombs showcases the power that Valorant already has. These four players and the Sentinels management are also looking to select a fifth member in order to complete the team. Fans are already wondering who it might be but only the future will tell. Riot said that it will support the Valorant esports scene from the very beginning, so it is why players are already threading the needle.
