Jared "zombs" Gitlin has officially been benched for the Sentinels' active Valorant roster. He will still be a part of the team, but we probably won't see him again this VCT season. However, we already officially know who his replacement will be, and it looks really promising, to be honest.

Kanpeki Will Play For Sentinels

The 2022 season definitely didn't start out the Sentinels way, and many people speculated that the squad was in for roster changes. There were even rumors that Jay "Sinaatra" Won, who got suspended over sexual harassment allegations, would return to the squad. However, Sentinels decided to try Eric "Kanpeki" Xu, whom you may know from a Tier-2 team called Akrew.

That said, the current Sentinels squad looks as follows:

We'll be able to watch Kanpeki's debut on April 28 when VCT Challengers Stage 2 for the NA region begins. Do you believe he will be able to bring some energy into the roster? Let us know on our Instagram!
