Sentinels welcome CS:GO Major Winner Tarik as a Content Creator for Valorant
Sentinels now also have a potential backup player.
Tarik is the latest esports celebrity to join the NA powerhouse's family. Only recently, Sentinels brought back Shroud to Competitive Esports and over half a million tuned in to see his Valorant debut as well.
Tark "Tarik" Celik has had a remarkable competitive esports career in the past. He got his start in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and played competitively through North America for roughly 7 years. His greatest accomplishment, in addition to being a part of many memorable plays, occurred when he assisted Cloud9 in defeating FaZe Clan 2-1 at the ELEAGUE Major: Boston 2018.
In 2021, Tarik stopped playing CS:GO and started a career as a content creator. Being well-known in the Counter-Strike community helped him amass a sizable fan base, but later that year, when he fully committed to playing Valorant, his streams went viral. He has consistently co-streamed Valorant competitive events, and once Champions gets underway, he will stream Valorant's biggest event of the year once more.
We never know if Tarik will be called in as a backup. Even though playing professionally and playing in a competitive league are two very different things, Tarik comes in with plenty of competitive experience, understands the fundamentals and looks prepared to step in during an emergency.
