North America has come out on top as Sentinels flawlessly defeated FNATIC in the Grand Final of the Valorant Champions Tour Stage 2: Masters Reykjavik.
The first international VCT Masters LAN tournament has finished in Iceland, with North America finishing on top. Sentinels defeated European representative, FNATIC, to become the world’s first Valorant champion.
In the grand final, FNATIC did put up a fight and, at times, looked likely to win a game against Sentinels. The European favourites brought two out of the three games to overtime and the third map to map to 13-11. However, this didn’t stop Sentinels from steamrolling the competition and not losing a single game in the 7-day tournament.
Tyson “TenZ” Ngo is the MVP
Tyson “TenZ” Ngo was the undisputed player of the tournament, ending the tournament on the highest kill death ratio of 1.48. TenZ is currently on loan from Cloud9, who didn’t qualify for the series. Sentinels will want to hold onto him for as long as they can, and it seems TenZ is on the same page.
During the post-match press conference, TenZ was asked whether he wants to continue playing with Sentinels going forward. “This team is amazing,” TenZ said in response. “I would love to stay with Sentinels if I could. I hope that I can. I’m praying.”
TenZ is currently still contracted to Cloud9, so there will need to be a monetary negotiation in the future for his services. Hopefully, TenZ can remain at Sentinels, as he looks to have settled in nicely.
