Former member of XSET joins Sentinels’ VALORANT crew, completing the crew’s roster.
A number of the former XSET players have found new homes with Sentinels for 2023, despite the fact that XSET did not make VALORANT Champions Tour franchising. Rory “dephh” Jackson has just joined the group as the final addition.
The former XSET in-game commander will complete the squad, Sentinels has confirmed, as was initially reported by Dot Esports. After the roster split as a result of the organization’s disallowed partnership for 2023, he joins two well-known teammates in coach Don “Syyko” Muir and teammate Zachary “zekken” Patrone.
The final piece of the puzzle

After the additions of Gustavo “Sacy” Rossi and Bryan “pANcada” Luna, who were once players for the Brazilian club LOUD, a business that also made franchising and may compete with the Sentinels in 2023, Dephh will probably be the final addition to the Sentinels’ roster. Tyler “TenZ” Ngo has affirmed that he would remain with the squad after extending his contract, despite Michael “shroud” Grzesiek’s place on the team still being up in the air.
Told you we’re not fucking around
A new chapter for the World Champions

Sentinels will start preparing for the start of the inaugural franchised season of VCT now that it has its core lineup. The circuit will launch in February 2023 with a competition in So Paulo, Brazil, which will take the place of the year’s first split. Franchised teams will be allowed to compete against other franchised teams for the first time in this event, which will have a champion at the end of the tournament in March.
Teams are still establishing their core rosters for 2023 even though the offseason is already in full swing. Sentinels are beginning to appear to be a powerhouse going into the inaugural franchised VCT tournament next year with a core lineup that includes three XSET members and two LOUD players who have recently advanced or won a significant event in international competition.
