Just as ranked games are coming soon, players are showing Riot Games that they are ready to move on to the next step: the competition. Sinatraa, current MVP and world champion of the Overwatch League, is expected to join the Sentinels' team of Valorant.
Sinatraa had recently announced that he was leaving San Francisco Shock and ending his career as an Overwatch player. In a TwitLonger, he explained that he had gradually lost his interest for Blizzard’s FPS, without knowing whether it came from a deep weariness or from multiple modifications of the competition’s format.
During the night, Sentinels’ team officially announced his arrival in their new Valorant roster. He’ll be accompanied by Jared "Zombs" Gitlin, professional player of Apex Legends, Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan and Hunter "SicK" Mims, both professional players of Counter-Strike.
Time to write the next chapter.— Sentinels (@Sentinels) April 29, 2020

So there is only one player missing at Sentinels to have a full team. Bet that with these 4 cornerstones, the team is already impressive.
It’s a very strong and very positive symbol for Valorant esport. Even if we’re still far from being able to follow an official league, the community already organises many tournaments. In addition, the imminent arrival of the ranked games will soon allow the best players to stand out and make themselves known.
