According to Dexerto, the Sentinels VALORANT team is undergoing a major overhaul. Quoting former 100 Thieves coach FrosT on the recent VALORANTING podcast, the organization intends to forgo collaboration with the current roster in order to sign more big name players in terms of results.
The Sentinels are about to disband their roster. They are probably going to buy OpTic Gaming or I guess will be in some kind of bidding war with Evil Geniuses for the OpTic Gaming roster. Or the Sentinels are about to completely rebuild. The Sentinels are over. The old Sentinels are gone. The players are not actually in the Sentinels anymore. This line-up will never return for a variety of reasons. All of these lineups will change because the scene is now consolidated.
The Sentinels are one of ten organizations that have made it into the VALORANT American League, which will be based in Los Angeles next season. They will be joined by four other organizations from North America (Cloud9, 100 Thieves, Evil Geniuses and NRG Esports), three from Brazil (LOUD, FURIA and MIBR) and two from Latin America (KRU Esports and Leviatán Esports).
At the same time, the current Sentinels roster showed far from the most impressive results last season. The team failed on the split, and also did not get into any international championship. In addition, various insiders are fueling interest by announcing the imminent departure of stars such as ShahZaM and TenZ.
If we consider the words of the same FrosT, TenZ may move to 100 Thieves, since his contract with the organization expires in December. In turn, ShahZaM can leave the pro scene, becoming a full-fledged content maker.
There is every reason to believe that in the off-season a serious struggle will unfold for the OpTic Gaming roster, which is the strongest in its region. At the same time, the organization was not included in the final list of partners, thereby fueling interest in future changes in the transfer market.
The current Sentinels roster for VALORANT is:
