Things are heating up in the professional Valorant community. As the Ignition Series continues, teams are starting to rise above the rest delivering high-level of play across the board, and right now, there's no better storyline than the one TSM and Sentinels have been building for the past few weeks.
After Sentinels completely demolished TSM at the PAX Invitational (13-3. 13-4), the squad led by Jett ace Matt "Wardell" Yu bounced back in to beat them in the Grand Finals of the FaZe Clan Invitational this past 9th August.
One of the TSM members that enjoyed securing the hard fought win the most was James "Hazed" Cobb, as the former CS:GO player revealed he has issues with Sentinels' squad on a personal level, letting it all out in the post-match interview.
"Someone had to put them in their place, they're so disrespectful, and I'm just tired of it. Someone had to do it, so the whole guys gotta come in and take care of the children. Children need to be put in their place," he stated in categoric fashion.
The 31-year-old veteran went on to single out a particular member of the Sentinels roster, former Apex Legends and Overwatch pro Jared "Zombs" Gitlin, explaining how he developed a beef with him dating back to the Valorant beta.
"There's a lot of beef that I won't talk about because it's not the place, but I personally have a problem with Zombs from the beta, I didn't know who he was and he would just talk trash, and I'm like, 'dude who are you?' I don't know where he got his ego from."
During the match itself, in between maps, Hazed would also put up a tweet that can be easily interpreted as a direct jab at Sentinels.
So tired of these children thinking i dont got it.â€” TSM High Warlord Hazed (@hazedCS) August 10, 2020
"So tired of these children thinking I don't got it." He would prove them wrong ending the match with a 1.34 K/D/A ratio and 11 first blood kills in the finals.
Fans will now look forward to the next North American Valorant tournament to be announced, as there are no Ignition Series events scheduled as of right now.
