After previous in-game leader ShahZaM made negative comments about the company, Valorant star Jared ‘zombs’ Gitlin made the claim that the Sentinels roster wanted to play with shroud in the North American League Championship Qualifier.
The Valorant esports community is currently in a state of outrage. Shahzeb “ShahZaM” Khan, a player with Valorant, recently made a scathing comment about his previous team, Sentinels, kicking out the year with some controversy. The 29-year-old player asserts that he was promised a slot in franchising provided the roster competed in the VCT Last Chance Qualifier alongside Counter-Strike veteran Michael “shroud” Grzesiek.
Subsequently, the organization was unable to make it to the Champions stage, and ShahZaM was removed from the Sentinels roster in the midst of a roster shakeup prior to the 2023 season.
Zombs Weighs in on Sentinels Controversy
Now, Zombs, who was formerly on the Sentinels roster but left early in the previous year, has shared his thoughts regarding the current predicament. A famous player for Valorant recently claimed in a live stream that the team truly wanted to play with a former competitive Counter-Strike player.
Zombs responded, “Yeah, I don’t know why he did shroud like that though, that’s all I’ll say bro.” “I would never do my dog like that. “It makes no difference, friend, which way he meant to take it; he literally wrote as if shroud were a rookie. It doesn’t matter which way he meant to take it.” As though he were participating in a charitable event, such as “Make-A-Wish for shroud.”
He went on to say that they desired to engage in cloak play. They were helpless and had no other choice. I just remember that every day after shroud joined Shahz, someone would say something along the lines of “bro shroud is surprising us in scrims so much, he’s awesome, he sh*t on everyone in scrims.” However, now he is moaning about something or other.
“It seemed as though he was trying to imply that shroud was to blame for their team’s inability to win LCQ. If that’s not the case, then what was the point of even penning it, and why are you bringing up Shroud if you’re not going to blame him?”
ShahZaM’s statements have also been refuted by the CEO of the Sentinels, Rob Moore, who blasted the player for his poor attitude during the 2022 VCT season. Rob Moore’s comments can be seen here.
