Sentinels officially acquires TenZ for VALORANT roster

The roster move that seemed inevitable has finally been made official: Tyson "TenZ" Ngo is joining Sentinels as permanent member of their VALORANT roster. After an initial report was published by The Esports Observer, both Sentinels and TenZ's former team, Cloud9, have confirmed the move.

TenZ initially played on Cloud9's roster for a few months, but stepped back into content creation. When Sentinels player sinatraa was suspended from competitive play in wake of sexual assault allegations, TenZ came out of retirement and was loaned to Sentinels as emergency substitute. It worked out much better than anyone could've anticipated, as TenZ helped Sentinels climb the international ladder, culminating in a VCT Masters Reykjavik championship just last week.

According to the report from The Esports Observer, Sentinels and Cloud9 agreed on TenZ's permanent transfer in a seven-figure deal. Cloud9 founder Jack Etienne explained on Reddit that the deal had been in the works for a while: "This deal was done before Iceland. It was a dangerous deal for us as we knew we would soon face Sentinels in the Iceland Qualifiers, however it was important to Tyson to play and I wanted to make it happen for him."
