There is no doubt about it any longer. Having torched the Masters: Reykjavik tournament without dropping a single match in their run, Sentinels are the champions of Valorant’s first international competition after defeating Fnatic in a clean 3-0 sweep which featured a couple of overtime periods and a valiant show of resilience from their European opponents.
Even after overcoming venerable difficulties with their roster which included them receiving Tyson “TenZ” Ngo on loan from Cloud9 after the suspension of Jay “sinatraa” Won from sexual abuse allegations in the lead to the North America Stage 1 Masters finals, Sentinels persevered by successfully including the 20-year-old Canadian into their already explosive lineup and ran riot on the rest of the competition in Iceland. Sentinels gave few hiccups in their performance here and there, but in those key moments where their players had to perform to the best of their abilities, they made it count. And boy did they.
Representing NA as their biggest hope for success, Sentinels plentifully delivered, and with perfection at that. Nine to zero in total maps, you couldn’t ask for any more than what Sentinels gave.
Moments after lifting the Masters: Reykjavik trophy as the undisputed best team in the world, Sentinels answered questions in a press conference to discuss various issues which corresponded to the team such as their future, how they will tackle the next Masters tournament which is set to take place in Berlin, Germany, TenZ’s loan situation with Cloud9 and how that will transpire, and much more.
