Shahzeb “ShahZaM” Khan, G2 Esports’ Valorant player, explained his Twitter spat with Sentinels and its CEO.
On January 12, ShahZaM made news by saying that Sentinels had broken a commitment they had made to him when they were considering adding Michael “shroud” Grzesiek to the team for the 2022 Valorant Champions playoffs.
In a recent livestream, ShahZam claimed the skit video to be in “a real bad taste,” and to paraphrase, “the exact same players they did dirty and f**ked over in various ways”
Sentinels CEO Rob Moore denied the claims made by ShahZam where he blamed the player’s attitude towards the game in 2022 and wished G2 Esports luck if he ever gets back to his form from 2021.
ShahZam then diffused off Sentinels’ CEO comments with “He’s blatantly lying to save face. Honestly it’s just sad.”
ShahZaM claims that if he accepted to play with shroud for “hype,” Sentinels would ensure that he would be included in the international league team.
However, as the off-season arrived, Sentinels parted ways with numerous members of the squad. One of these members was ShahZaM, who went on to play for G2 Esports in the North American Challengers.
Although ShahZam spoke in the favor of Shroud, who played exceptionally well in the North American Last Chance Qualifier.
“My tweet had nothing to do with taking a jab at shroud. He was asked to play, he came in, he wanted to play, and gave his all. He outperformed everyone’s expectations,” he said.
ShahZaM did make a note of the fact that the addition of the Canadian streamer did little to calm the criticism the players had endured since the start of the year for the poor results across regional events.
After being dropped from Sentinels’ Valorant roster, ShahZam was acquired by G2 Esports for the 2023 pro circuit and in a bid to lock themselves a spot in the next franchising round.
