Sentinels to field SicK as their sixth player

Hunter “SicK” Mims is making his comeback to the team as their sixth man after being gone from the game for a number of months. SicK is the sole member of the original Sentinels roster that is still active.

After dealing with a family crisis and struggling with his mental health, SicK made the decision to step down from the roster in the middle of the VCT NA Stage 2 Challengers. During Sentinels’ VCT NA Last Chance Qualifier run, they fielded Michael “shroud” Grzesiek and Jordan “Zellsis” Montemurro.

After teasing earlier in the day on Twitter that it wouldn’t field a sixth man, Sentinels revealed it is instead fielding a “SicKth” guy.

As SicK is now the sole player from the original Sentinels roster still active who signed with the team before the summer of 2020, he will take on the primary role of substitute. Sentinels rebuilt around TenZ after a poor 2022 season, including stand-in performances from shroud and Zellsis at the LCQ.

New head coach Don “Syyko” Muir recruited zekken and dephh, two players who had previously participated in his highly successful XSET project. Additionally, Sacy and pANcada, both formerly of Brazil’s LOUD, were brought in to give the rest of the lineup world championship experience.

SicK has been a member of the VALORANT roster since the Sentinels first appeared on the scene; yet, he was benched for a significant portion of the 2022 season. In May this past year, SicK was forced to be substituted out of a VCT match due to a family emergency.

A month later, he announced that he would be taking extended time off to deal with his deteriorating mental health and would be taking leave in order to focus on getting better.

It is reasonable to anticipate that the complete new Sentinels lineup, including SicK, will compete at the VCT 2023 Kickoff event that will take place in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in the month of February.
