Sentinels waves off suggestions of joining LCS following reports of TSM and CLG’s potential departures

After recent reports suggested that TSM and CLG, two staple organizations in League of Legends’ esports scene in North America, could be leaving the LCS in the near future due to financial struggles, rumors that Sentinels was looking to expand its opetions and join the league emerged. Such rumors, however, aren’t true, according to a report by James Fudge of The Esports Advocate.

The Esports Advocate spoke to a high-nking Sentinels employee on background (under the condition of anonymity) and the source said that Sentinels isn’t actively speaking to “anyone”—TSM, CLG, or Riot Games—about joining the LCS. The Los Angeles organization is already partnered with Riot in VALORANT esports and its star-studded roster featuring TenZ, Sacy, and paNcada is currently competing in VCT Americas League. On top of the lineup, Sentinels is also home to streamer Tarik, who hosts the most popular watch parties for VALORANT tournaments.
