The Los Angeles Sentinels has confirmed today that it's bringing Tyson "TenZ" Ngo as a stand-in for Valorant Champions Tour Masters One.
We're happy to announce that @TenZOfficial will be joining Sentinels to compete in Masters Stage 1.— Sentinels (@Sentinels) March 11, 2021
TenZ has been busy as a content creator for Cloud9 since he stepped back from C9's competitive Valorant roster in January, but the 19-year-old Canadian Valorant professional player will be returning to the competitive scene earlier than expected.
Due to the recent suspension of Jay "Sinatraa" Won, Sentinels is using TenZ as a stand-in. Won has been suspended from the team and Riot competitions while they investigate into his conduct with his ex-girlfriend, Cleo
We are aware of the current situation regarding Jay “Sinatraa” Won and have launched an investigation internally. While the investigation is pending, he is suspended from the team.— Sentinels (@Sentinels) March 10, 2021
We will provide a further update once the investigation has concluded.
According to a recent ruling by Riot Games, Sentinels has acquired the rights to TenZ, and that he will no longer be representing Cloud9, which means that the esports organization could use him in matches after VCT Masters One.
The current Sentinels roster includes TenZ, Shazeeb "ShahZaM" Khan, Hunter "SicK Mims, Jared "zombs" Gitlin, and Michael "dapr" Gulino. They will be going against Luminosity this week.
Sentinels vs. Luminosity begins at 2pm CT on March 12.
