Sentinels, the reigning world champions, are working on preserving their roster that found so much success and the first step was to purchase the contract of Tyson "TenZ" Ngo.

VCT Masters has concluded just the last weekend and Sentinels are making headlines again. After  going flawless on the main event and winning it all, they decided to keep the successful bunch together by acquiring TenZ as a full-time team member, as opposed to being on loan from C9.

The player initially arrived as a replacement for the suspended Jay "sinatraa" Won and some saw this as a potential problem for the team ahead of the biggest Valorant tournament to date.

Instead, TenZ proved everyone wrong and showed just how well he could perform and how quickly he clicked with the rest of the team by creating what is possibly one of the most fearsome lineups in esports today.

According to The Esports Observer, the deal between C9 and SEN hit seven figures and it's not really surprising, considering the quality TenZ brought in the months leading to VCT Masters as well as the tournament itself.

This leaves the question of sinatraa's future, provided he manages to get back into pro play after the suspension expires. 

It remains to be seen if any organisation will want to pick the player up but considering the cohesion of the current Sentinels roster, it's hard to imagine he will be replacing someone on the team.
