Sentinels completed a dominant tournament Sunday by sweeping Fnatic 3-0 in the Grand Finals to claim the VALORANT Champions Tour 2021 Stage 2 Masters in Reykjavík.
Sentinels did not drop a single map throughout the entire tournament.
The Los Angeles-based esports club clinched a $200,000 grand prize along with 400 VCT circuit points, enough to qualify for the end-of-year World Championship.
The 10-team masters was split into a six-team winners bracket and four-team elimination bracket. All rounds were best-of-three until Sunday’s best-of-five Grand Finals. Sentinels defeated London-based Fnatic in Round 1 of the winners bracket, but Fnatic rebounded by forging through the remainder of the elimination bracket to set up a rematch in the Grand Finals.
Every map was close, with Sentinels winning 14-12 on Split, 16-14 on Bind and 13-11 on Haven.
Nikita “Derke” Sirmitev of Finland led Fnatic, earning MVP honors three times over six days (Days 1, 5 and 6).
The Stage 2 Masters was Valorant’s first-ever international LAN event.
