Overwatch vet and leading player Sinatraa jumps ship for VALORANT
The longtime eSports expert is ready to take on a new challenge
San Francisco Shock, the current champion of the Overwatch League, is losing its MVP. Overwatch DPS player Sinatraa is leaving the team to pursue a career in the newest release from Riot Games, VALORANT. Sinatraa got the title of MVP during last year’s season, leading his team to the grand finals and victory against the Vancouver Titans.
The news was followed by ESPN Esports that has announced the player is leaving the team to join the Sentinels, former owner of the Los Angeles Gladiators. “He came, he saw, and he conquered,” wrote San Francisco Shock in a tweet. “Thank you and best of luck in your future endeavors.” He signed with the team when he was only 17, becoming one of the youngest players signed to an Overwatch League. Sinatraa had an outstanding performance during the 2017 Overwatch World Cup and some rumors later about his good salary got him the nickname of “Mr.150k.” He had to wait for a while to compete officially in the Overwatch League until he turned 18, which happened midway through the first season.
The team’s performance during the first season was not memorable, but it stood up for vengeance in 2019. Sinatraa’s MVP comes from playing multiple damages and tank heroes across several metas. The young competitor made a public statement about his departure from the team, always thanking his teammates and the organization. Apparently, the reason he was to pursue another league is because he has lost passion for the game; therefore, he has not been giving his 100% while playing on the League.
