Sinatraa Leaves the Shock

In an official tweet from the San Francisco Shock Twitter account, the team has said farewell to Jay “Sinatraa” Won. The reigning league MVP has been cryptic on stream lately, telling viewers earlier this week that he had an announcement to make later in the week. It was rumored that he is leaving to join a Valorant team, and sources have told ESPN that he is joining the Sentinels organization for this game.

On his personal stream, Sinatraa told fans that the announcement would be neither good nor bad. He hoped that his viewers would stick with him no matter what choice he made. While still staying cryptic, he said “I’d like to do both” but had to make a decision one way or the other. Now that decision has been made clear, and he got an offer to play on a Valorant team. To make it even more obvious, he ended his last Overwatch game onstream saying “this could be my last game forever.”

Many speculated that he would opt to stay with NRG Esports, the parent organization for the Shock. NRG are already making its own Valorant roster, including Brandon “Aceu” Winn and Coby “Dizzy” Meadows. Staying within the organization would make sense, as he already knows the people and the environment.

The Sentinels were the parent organization for the LA Gladiators through the 2019 season, and have multiple other esports ventures. They are currently known for their teams in Fortnite, Hearthstone, Apex Legends, and Halo. Their most famous member to date is Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf, the winner of the 2019 Fortnite World Cup.
