TenZ has finally made the jump from Cloud9 to Sentinels.
According to The Esports Observer, the player transfer agreement for Tyson “TenZ” Ngo has been completed. The VALORANT pro player, who retired this January from pro play, will now officially be part of the Sentinels roster.
According to The Esports Observer, the buyout amounts to a “7-figure” deal. Sentinels and Cloud9 later went public with their $1.2 million deal. What we can confirm, however, is that TenZ will most likely be staying with Sentinels for good. The player has expressed his desire to stay with the team during a press conference after their championship win. Meanwhile, Sentinels’ Twitter account already declared, “He’s here to stay.”
TenZ retired this January from professional VALORANT play. He stayed with Cloud9 as a streamer, but circumstances allowed him to return to professional play. In April this year, Sentinels found themselves missing one player for the VCT North America Masters. Cloud9 allowed him to play with Sentinels as a stand-in on loan. The result was a great success for both TenZ and the Sentinels, who went on to go 9-1 in that tournament, winning their first title for the season. In Stage 2 of the VCT, they went on to win with a clean record to become VALORANT‘s first world champions. What’s best, TenZ consistently top-fragged in their games throughout all the tournaments he’s played with the team.
While the ‘7-figure’ deal was between Cloud9 and Sentinels, we’re sure that this will mean good money for TenZ. His new stint as Sentinels’ star should lead to sponsorships, partnerships, and a good salary from the organization. That will do wonders for his net worth, that’s for sure.
