It might have been G2 Esports who broke Sentinels’ winning streak in Masters, but it was Team Envy who sent them home. Indeed, Team Envy upsets Sentinels, sending home the defending VALORANT champions early in Masters Berlin.
More surprisingly, Team Envy upsets Sentinels with relative ease. While Team Envy and Sentinels competed in a hard-fought overtime series in their first bout, Team Envy won over the defending champions. In their second match, Team Envy beat Sentinels more decisively, ending the bout with a score of 13-7. With Sentinels losing two games out of their Bo3 match, Team Envy proceeds to the next round, sending home Sentinels prematurely in the tournament.
Sentinels take home $25,000 from their exit, but we’re sure that they’re not happy with their results. But still, Team Envy’s win doesn’t take away Sentinels’ chances in reaching VALORANT Champions Berlin. But the defending champions’ early exit ensures that another team will have a sure slot in VALORANT Champions Berlin. Whoever wins VALORANT Masters Berlin will get a straight shot to Champions on top of taking home the $225, 000 cash prize.
Team Envy will be facing 100 Thieves in the second round, who, in the previous round, won against Ascend 2-1. On the other leg of the tournament bracket, G2 Esports and Gambit Esports will be facing each other, after taking down Vision Strikers and KRÜ Esports in the first round, respectively.
