Just a day after Riot announced a six-month suspension preventing Jay "Sinatraa" Won from playing Valorant competitively, the former OWL MVP decided to return to streaming on Twitch, peaking at over 34k viewers at one point.
Riot's decision to suspend him stems from the fact that Sinatraa failed to provide evidence during an investigation regarding allegations of sexual misconduct against the 21-year-old from his ex-girlfriend.
According to Riot, Won "misrepresented certain facts, made false statements, and did not cooperate with the investigation."
His return to streaming was not surprising as he had previously mentioned that he intended to return to Twitch as soon as possible.

Thinking about retirement from competitive Valorant is something Sinatraa had previously mentioned, and with a recent update to his Twitter bio, in which he removed any allusion of being a pro, simply claiming he's a content creator for Sentinels, fans immediately assumed he wouldn't pursue this career path -- that might not be the case.
During his return to Twitch, in which he avoided talking about the controversy surrounding his situation, opting to discuss cryptocurrency with his chat, Sinatraa revealed that he will indeed pursue a pro career once the ban is up.
"Are you going to return to pro play after ban? Probably, yeah," was his answer to a donation from a viewer.
It remains to be seen if Sentinels will keep Sinatraa around for the foreseeable future, or whether he'll have to look for another org to test his luck.
