TSM Clinch 3-2 Win Against Sentinels in FaZe Clan VALORANT Invitational
After a back-and-forth series, Team SoloMid take down Sentinels to become champions of the FaZe Clan VALORANT Invitational.
TSM triumphed in the Ignition Series tournament among 16 teams with the likes of T1, Cloud9, and FaZe Clan invited. In Group B, TSM lost against Cloud9 1-2 in the upper bracket. However, they were still able to qualify for playoffs with a win over Renegades in the lower bracket.
In the playoffs, Team SoloMid had to take down T1 in a close 2-1 series where they came back from a loss deficit. Moving on to the semis, Tournament MVP Matthew “Wardell” Yu on his operator swept Immortals and Sentinels to secure their spot in the Grand Finals.
The grand finals proved to be a worthy rematch with back-and-forth games between rivals Team SoloMid and the Sentinels. In the last game of the series, Yassine “Subroza” Taoufik’s Phoenix and Wardell’s Jett took matters into their own hands when they were down 10-12 in Bind. After a long and arduous fight, TSM managed to take it to overtime and secure the tournament win 14-12.
Team SoloMid will be taking home $25,000 for their win and position themselves as the most dominant team in North America. TSM’s last championship win was at the T1 x Nerd Street Gamers Showdown against T1 3-0.
