‘He’s going to perform’: TenZ shuts down claims Sentinels are ‘taking gamble’ on Shroud

The VALORANT pro has faith in the Twitch star.

VALORANT pro Tyson TenZ Ngo believes his team, Sentinels, arent taking a massive gamble by adding star Twitch streamer Michael shroud Grzesiek to their roster because hes already really good at the game.

The organization announced the shock move on July 8, which was so unexpected that when the former CS:GO pro approached them, they thought he was trolling.

Shroud, however, was dead serious and has the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive experience and first-person shooter skills to back it up. Shroud has streamed VALORANT for over 1000 hours, the second-most of any game hes played.

More importantly, he still lives up to his nickname of ‘the human aimbot.’ He has an impressive highlight reel, including a god-like triple wall bang from this week.

TenZ is confident the popular streamer will be an asset to the team rather than a liability. First, because he is a former pro who is familiar with the game. And second, because he is ridiculously good. He explained: CS:GO players will have a pretty easy time going into VALORANT. Like, if they already know VALORANT and know the abilities and stuff, theres a lot less for them to learn.

He’s already really good at the game without actually playing it all the time and competing. Nobody can take that away from him. He is really f**king good, trust me.

If he does have any rust to shed, TenZ believes itll happen in the weeks playing at boot camp. After that, he said hes sure the Twitch star is going to perform really well.

At this stage, the org hasnt revealed how long his stint will last. But they did confirm hell play controller at the NA VCT Last Chance Qualifier in August.

As the name suggests, its the last chance for the teams to qualify for VALORANT Champions 2022. Theres only one spot up for grabs and Sentinels will need to beat the likes of 100 Thieves, Evil Geniuses, FaZe Clan, and more to secure it.
