As a part of the inaugural Sentinels Sentinels North America Rank #10 roster in 2020, dapr stayed until 2023. In those three years, Sentinels became one of North America's most popular teams — cementing themselves in history by winning the first Valorant international tournament, Masters Reykjavik 2021. Following a shaky 2022 season, dapr left the team and moved to G2 Esports G2 Esports North America Rank #3 for their VCL North America: Challengers campaign. The roster was considered a top contender after they finished second in the VCL North America Midseason tournament. Despite an 0-5 Split 2, G2 had enough points for the playoffs — however, they found little success after going 1-2 and finishing in the top six. G2 later disbanded in July.
After initially being a VCT Turkey: Challengers team in 2020 and 2021, Oxygen Esports transitioned to a North American team in December 2022 — with Rustun as an assistant coach. The roster gained traction by they qualifying for VCL NA: Challengers and finishing fourth in the Midseason tournament. Before Split 2, Rustun moved to an active player role after Joshua "pwny" VanGorder's departure. Following a 3-2 record, Oxygen Esports found themselves in playoffs, where they finished in fourth place.
