According to a recent report by Dot Esports, the Sentinels will attempt to post bail for their previous substitute player for Valorant, Hunter ‘SicK’ Mims, sometime within the next few days. Dot Esports has reported that Sentinels will make an effort in the upcoming days to post bail for SicK and provide transportation for the sister of the Valorant player to travel to Dallas, Texas. These two occurrences are going to take place at the same time.
May of 2022 was the date of the most recent and conclusive VCT match in which SicK competed on behalf of the Sentinels. Following that, he announced that he would be stepping away from competitive play for an extended period beginning in 2022.
The Sentinels intend to secure the release of a Valorant player
On March 4, SicK was arrested and charged with violating the terms of his release by committing criminal trespassing. It has been stated that the Sentinels group placed him on administrative leave immediately upon his arrest. It has been reported that Jimmy “Marved” Nguyen, a former player for OpTic Gaming, has been recruited to play for the esports organization as a replacement for the player serving in that capacity. Rob Moore, the corporation’s Chief Executive Officer, emphasized his intention to “assist [sicK] through this difficult moment” on March 8.
In addition to that, he announced that the team will be acquiring a new player to take his place in order to meet the regulations of the Riot Games league. This was said in order to satisfy the requirements of the company. The Sentinels have had a rough start to 2022, and it has nothing to do with the crisis currently facing SicK.
At the VCT LOCK/IN, team one only competed in one series before being eliminated by Fnatic, who went on to win the competition. Fnatic went on to take first place overall. In addition, over the offseason, the Valorant squad only participated in one tournament, the Ludwig x Tarik Invitational, in which they achieved a third-place finish.
On April 1, the VCT Americas League will get off, and the first match will be a battle between Sentinels and 100 Thieves. The winner of this match will advance to the next round. The group will be competing against other teams for the very first time in the context of a league for the first time.
