NA Valorant heavyweights Sentinels and TSM have clashed on Twitter after a scrim went sour on February 10. Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won and James ‘Hazed’ Cobb clashed, with the two accusing each other of “trolling” their practice matches.
Sentinels and TSM have provided NA Valorant fans with plenty of entertaining series on the server. However, beef between the squads has spewed out publicly after a scrim went sour on February 10.
TSM star Hazed claimed one team was sandbagging during scrims, although he didn’t name the team initially. “Imagine a pro team sandbagging scrims and trolling,” Hazed wrote on Twitter, ending with a clown emoji.
Imagine a pro team sandbagging scrims and trolling. 🤡
Sentinels star Sinatraa quickly fired back though, saying that Sentinels decimated TSM 19-5 in the scrim. This sent Hazed on a tirade, claiming Sinatraa has his “head so far up [his] a**,” and quickly making it obvious who the subtweet was referring to.
Sentinels’ Hunter ‘SicK’ Mims jumped to his teammates defense. He added TSM weren’t taking it seriously either.
The dispute narrowed down to two rounds — one where TSM reportedly bought four Guardians and ran around, and one where Sentinels reportedly bought five Odins and did the same thing.
“I’m all for trying in scrims, but if you think the way your team was playing across both maps was in any way tactical or ‘trying to practice’ then I don’t know what to say. We did get a little crazy but don’t act like there isn’t two sides to this,” he said.

Hazed did admit he believes Sentinels are “the better team,” but that doesn’t mean TSM can’t try new strategies and lose with them. It also doesn’t make it acceptable, in his eyes, to “troll” by buying five Odins and run around.
“I’ve talked about this on stream before but just because you are better than a team you are playing against, it doesn’t mean they are trolling. Y’all are admittedly the better team. We were trying shit and it didn’t work and we were losing. That doesn’t make it acceptable to buy five Odins and run around,” he said.
That doesnt make it acceptable to buy 5 odins and run around. Fuck that.
Hazed also added he’s heard complaints about Sentinels in scrims from five other teams.
“Lie about the score. Lie about four guardians. Your team double no-clipped in a 2v5 and one of them suicided. Your team bought five Odins… twice. I’ve gotten DMs from five teams saying you guys do the same sh*t to them, then tell me I need to grow up for calling you out.”
“No gramps, we literally thought you were trolling so we trolled for one round as well, then you proceeded to take it to Twitter playing victim because you couldn’t handle losing to it I guess. This is why I said grow up,” Sinatraa retorted.

Day 4 preview: ROKKR vs NYSL, OpTic vs LAG, FaZe vs Mutineers
Due to the inclement weather in Texas and other parts of the United States causing power outages for a lot of pro players, the CDL opted to combine the Week 2 and 3 matches into Super Week.
Seven straight days of matches will see all 12 teams in action at least three times, and with the Stage 1 Major looming around the corner, this will be the final opportunity for teams to improve their seeding for the $500,000 tournament.

Empire & LA Thieves escape upsets, OpTic back to winning ways
Having already suffered an upset loss at Opening Weekend, Dallas Empire barely avoided back-to-back such defeats in their match vs London Royal Ravens. Despite getting completely dominated by the Subliners the day before, London pushed the defending champs to a fifth map before ultimately coming up just short of their first win of the season.
LA Thieves found themselves in a similar situation against the Seattle Subliners, who, just like London, were swept the day before. A back-and-forth affair saw the match pushed to a game five, but that was the most resistance that Surge could offer as LAT dominated the final S&D 6-0, thanks to some historic numbers put up by TJHaLy.
The third and final match of the day saw OpTic Chicago back in action for the first time since their Opening Weekend loss to FaZe. Faced with a stiff test in Toronto Ultra, the Green Wall started off with one of the most dominant Hardpoint wins in CDL history, putting Ultra in the dreaded ‘100-point club.’
The series settled down and got a bit closer after that but OpTic ultimately edged out the victory in four maps, improving to 2-1 on the season while Toronto dropped to 1-2.
Mutineers get first win of 2021, FaZe stay unbeaten
After losing their season-opener at CDL Opening Weekend, Florida Mutineers’ new-look lineup got their first win of 2021 with a 3-1 victory over LA Guerrillas, who now sit at 1-2. LAG won the first map in dominant fashion before the Mutineers ripped off three straight maps to secure the series.
The second match of the day was a battle of the unbeatens as Atlanta FaZe took on Toronto Ultra. The series started back-and-forth, and if it wasn’t for a clutch break at the end of the Raid Hardpoint, Atlanta may have found themselves down 0-2 early.
But things settled down after the second map as FaZe took games three and four quite comfortably to secure the 3-1 victory. The win now gives the boys in red a league-leading three wins, against just zero losses, while Ultra drop to 1-1.
Legion & Subliners sweep their way to first wins, ROKKR stay hot vs Surge
After going 0-2 in the Opening Weekend, Paris Legion finally got their first win of 2021 at Super Week, and what a win it was. Despite being underdogs to the Mutineers, Legion pulled off a shocking sweep that featured a rare Hardpoint ending on time.
Following Paris’ script, the New York Subliners also notched their first one in the win column after sweeping London Royal Ravens in perhaps the most dominant performance we’ve seen so far in 2021.
None of the three maps were close, especially the Control, which saw NYSL shred their opponents from start to finish and not give them even a chance at making any sort of comeback. With the loss, Royal Ravens now sit at 0-2 early on in the season.
Rounding off a trio of Day 2 sweeps was Minnesota ROKKR grabbing their second win in a row after taking apart Seattle Surge 3-0. The series was closer than the final scoreline would suggest as Surge did make solid comebacks in both the S&D and Control, only to fall just short in both.
