Zellsis' signing comes just over a week after he announced his unrestricted free agency from Cloud9 Cloud9 North America Rank #4 , where he spent 11 months. The roster kicked off the year with a top 16 at LOCK//IN but, in the months following, Cloud9 became the Americas team that always fell short of international LANs. In the VCT Americas — where the roster placed second in the regular season — NRG Esports NRG Esports North America Rank #3 beat them to the punch in the lower bracket, taking the final available slot and forcing Cloud9 to the LCQ. Sentinels, who placed seventh, also attended the LCQ.
Cloud9 ended up beating Sentinels in the upper bracket of the Americas LCQ, but Leviatán Leviatán Latin America South Rank #1 made quick work of both of them. The LATAM roster eliminated Cloud9 in the lower bracket final, just two match wins away from reaching Champions. In the round prior, Leviatán eliminated Sentinels.
Adding Zellsis is the third move Sentinels undergo in the span of a week. After renewing their contract with Tyson "TenZ" Ngo for the next season, Sentinels announced yesterday that they had signed Mohamed "johnqt" Amine Ouarid from M80 M80 North America Rank #2 to take over the IGL duties.
