Sentinels' Journey: From Glory to Redemption

Johnqt, initially under Ghost Gaming, gained recognition by winning the NSG: Summer Championship 2022 and VALORANT Challengers North America. Although his journey with M80 ended in disappointment at VCT 2023, Sentinels saw potential in him, securing him as the new IGL for the upcoming season. Johnqt boasts a 1.10 rating and a 1.29 K/D.
Sentinels' Strategic Move: Johnqt as New IGL
Sentinels, a North American esports powerhouse, has made a game-changing decision by signing Johnqt as their IGL. This move aims to reshape their Valorant esports squad and propel Sentinels back to the top.
Johnqt: The Moroccan's Remarkable Journey
Before joining Sentinels, Johnqt’s Moroccan Valorant pro player journey was marked by dedication and determination. Hailing from Morocco, he initially had to rely on streams and impressions to gauge Valorant’s potential in his region. The absence of a Closed Beta made his decision even more challenging. However, Riot Games’ commitment to the MENA region ignited his excitement, leading him to transition from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. A pivotal moment in his career was his shift from the “clutch” role to the Duelist role, demonstrating his adaptability and carry potential.
Rising Star in the MENA Region
Johnqt’s hard work paid off, earning him recognition in Valorant’s leaderboard standings. His achievements resonated across the MENA region, where notable esports players are scarce. His success was celebrated from Morocco to Jordan and beyond.
Sentinels' Pursuit of Excellence
Sentinels, a dominant force in Valorant esports since April 2020, made a name with star signings like Jay “sinatraa” Won, Shahzeb “ShahZaM” Khan, and Hunter “SicK” Mims. They secured a flawless victory at VALORANT Champions Tour 2021: Stage 2 Masters – Reykjavík, cementing their global status. Recent roster changes and a partnership with Riot Games for Valorant Champions Tour Americas League 2023 reflect their commitment to excellence. With Johnqt as the new IGL, Sentinels is poised for Valorant dominance, offering a unique blend of skills and leadership.
The Journey Ahead
Valorant fans eagerly anticipate the synergy between Johnqt and his teammates as Sentinels aims for victory in the Valorant Champions Tour. Stay tuned for updates on their quest for glory in VCT America.
