Ninja’s Time In shock FaZe, TSM & Envy flop

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins knows what it’s like to win, but when his band of pickups came up against the pro power of FaZe Clan, no one expected a result. Despite Corey ‘Corey’ Nigra and co’s best efforts, Time In edged out FaZe in overtime (15-13).

Both Envy and TSM failed to make it out of their groups, after losing their elimination match versus FaZe and Gen.G respectively.

It was the Jay ‘sinatraa’ Won show in Sentinels semi-final bout versus 100 Thieves. The former Overwatch League MVP clocked out with a series K/D/A of 63/49/28 to reassert his dominance after flopping out of First Strike.

The Grand Final clash against FaZe was a close one. Sentinels out-lasted FaZe 18-16 on Haven, to tee up tournament point on their map pick. Split was another close affair, but Sentinels closed it out in regulation (13-10). Shahzeeb ‘ShahZaM’ Khan’s Jett proved to be the difference maker, as he chalked up a 238 ACS en route to claiming the $25,000 prize.
