Going into VCT 2022 everyone has one question. What is Sinatraa’s competitive status: will he or won’t he join a team.
Jay “Sinatraa” Won is an American Valorant content creator/streamer for Sentinels. He used to be a professional player, however, after some serious accusations from his ex-girlfriend he was let down from the team.
Sinatraa started his professional career through overwatch. He is an insane player with a lot of potential. And after the release of valorant, Shahzam made a valorant roster with him in it. Which was picked up by Sentinals but after the accusations, he was shifted from a professional player to a content creator.
As he received a 6 months ban from playing competitive valorant from Riot. However, his ban is currently over, so lets if he will play in VCT 2022 or not.
Sinatraa’s Competitive status
Getting this q a lot so I will clarify:
There is basically no team Sinatraa could possibly join prior to the start of #VCT.

Referring to the tweet from George Geddes, a renowned Esports Journalist. Sinatraa will not be able to play at the start of VCT 2022 as no major teams want to take him. The main reason is his buy-out is too costly as he is a great player and with the cost, there is the additional baggage of his past.
In order for him to play some venture capital organization has to buy him and build a team around him.
A simple summary from George is :
players want him because he’s fucking incredible. Teams don’t want him because he’s a brand risk.
So to sum it up Sinatraa will still remain in Sentinals as a content creator for the time being. Till some organization goes to the risk of buying him and builds a team around him.
