If TenZ posted on his Instagram account showing his injury. He said “F*** this kettle, poured boiling water all over my left hand. Unlucky I guess.” The severity of the injury is unknown but it looks like the player will be able to compete. If he injured any of his other fingers, he would be unable to use his keyboard, forcing the team to substitute the star player. 

TenZ is Key to Sentinel’s Success at VCT Reykjavik

TenZ was originally playing for Cloud9 in 2020. The pro player was regarded as the best Valorant player at the time and is still arguably worthy of the title. He had the highest combat score in all Ignition series tournaments he participated in and has been an all-star performer. Unfortunately, he could not win Valorant First Strike with Cloud 9 despite impressive individual statistics. 

In January 2021, he decided to step down from professional Valorant and focus on streaming and content creation instead. Following the controversy surrounding Sentinels’ Sinatraa, he returned to competitive Valorant and is currently set to compete with the team till the Valorant Challengers Finals. Since his arrival, he has been very successful in the team with Sentinels qualifying for the upcoming Masters event and the team is one of the fan favorites to win the event.
