ShahZaM reunites with his old Complexity and Misfits teammate SicK in the Sentinels' inaugural VALORANT roster

Sentinels have signed signed former CS:GO pros Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan and Hunter "SicK" Mims to their inaugural VALORANT roster. The organization is best known for being the home of Fortnite World Cup champion Kyle "Bugha" Giersdorf.

SicK confirms move towards VALORANT

Honestly a stacked roster for valorant right now, since all of them have the advantage of being really good at their respective games + the esports scene is still small with only tournaments here and there

Of course, I wish Sick stayed and Shahzam so I could keep watching them play CS, but I wish them the best of luck

If you wanna look at raw talent, I think T1 is easily the most stacked in terms of past history and potential. Atm mouseSpaz is probably the best team (Cutler, hazed, drone, Subroza, WARDELL) or the Absolute roster that all switched over just because they'll have strong chemistry and teamplay. This is a stacked roster so far but I'd be scared of mP and Absolute

Ah, the roster with Wardell and Cutler got picked up by Mousespaz? Haven’t heard of the org for a while.

I agree with T1 and Absolute being really scary rosters right now, I liked a lot of their players (especially Absolute, who I rooted for a lot) when they used to play CS, so I hope they do well

I’m sure that this roster, however, will be very good once they get a lot of experience together as a team, considering all of their players are talented

If anything this roster forming and however T1 build their roster with the last 2 spots they could be the top 1 and 2 respectively. And I'm not certain. The mouseSpaz did actually pick them up, the Liquipedia for valorant says that they signed them but they also had Laski and another player beforehand in place of I think Cutler and Subroza. Either way the few teams confirmed out there or atleast speculated do look dangerous. I'm not booked by valorant yet, but I plan on watching it when it gets a serious scene because it looks like itll be pretty fun from a competitive standpoint. Maybe CS and valorant will end up in an FGC situation where some players play both games depending on how their scheduling works out
