Earlier Tuesday, Tyler Erzberger and Jacob Wolf announced for ESPN that Jay “Sinatraa” Won would retire from Overwatch to pursue a career at VALORANT, and that he would join the Sentinels. Sinatraa leaves a huge legacy in Overwatch, notably as the reigning MVP for the regular season of Overwatch League, OWL champion in season 2 with the shock of San Francisco and gold medalist of the World Cup in Overwatch with Team USA.
Jared “Zombs” Gitlin will join Sinatraa, who competed for the Sentinels in Apex Legends. The Sentinels Apex Legends trio won many places in first place, including at TwitchCon San Diego in September 2019, as well as a third place result at the XP X Games Invitational in Minneapolis.

The two were part of Misfits in 2017 when the team made it to the semi-finals in the ESL Pro League season 6 final in Odense, Denmark.
Sentinels founder Rob Moore said in the team’s official statement, “Our goals as an organization are to connect our fans to the biggest and most exciting games in e-sport, and to recruit championship caliber teams like we have done in other games like Fortnite and Halo. . The signing of Sinatraa, ShaZaM and SicK to join our organization further consolidates Sentinels as a home for world class players and teams. “
