Sentinels announce IGL

The organization has yet to announce what roles each player on the team will take up for the next year but presumably, dephh will preside over the IGL role.

Sentinels have completely revamped its roster for the 2023 season with new coaches and four new players. In 2022, the organization had a terrible year and missed out on every international tournament. In contrast, 2020 saw Sentinels rise to become one of the top teams in North America and in 2021 the team won the first international Valorant tournament.

The offseason for teams in the partnered league ends in February, so Sentinels can still make changes to their active roster.
