Sentinels have officially confirmed that they are renewing the contract of their star Valorant player, Tyson “TenZ” Ngo.
The announcement was made through a humorous skit on the esports organization’s social media on September 9. In the video, content creator Tarik “Tarik” Celik is shown on a spoof version of the Shark Tank reality TV show, looking for an investment for Sentinels.
The video revealed that TenZ will remain with Sentinels. It did not confirm, however, if the Masters Reykjavik 2021 MVP will continue to play for their Valorant team, or switch to a full-time content creation role.
TenZ to stay with Sentinels
In the spoof Shark Tank video, Tarik initially struggles to persuade the investors to back Sentinels, humorously referring to the team’srecent financial issues, announced a month prior.
The investors’ attitudes change instantly when Tarik introduces TenZ and announces his decision to stay with the team.
The VCT global contract database shows that TenZ, a leading player in the VCT Americas League, was set to become a free agent this year.
While his arrangement with Sentinels continues, the video doesn’t disclose if he will become a full-time content creator or remain on the VCT Americas League team.
Sentinels have welcomed several former pro players who turned to content creation, including Tarik and Brandon “aceu” Winn from Apex Legends.
A strong indication that TenZ might return to the team is the fact that he shared the Shark Tank video with the caption, “Running it back with Yoru.”
Among Valorant pros, TenZ is one of the few who plays Yoru in the VCT. His last game with the character was against 100 Thieves in the VCT Americas Last Chance Qualifier when Sentinels earned a fourth-place finish.
