Each week at CheckpointXP we bring you a moment in gaming that’s too close for comfort. This week we wipe the sweat from our brow after a nail biter of a Valorant tournament. Team SoloMid took revenge on the Sentinels at the FaZe Clan Valorant Invitational.

Tit For Tat

Last week we featured Team SoloMid and the Sentinels in our Close Shave but in reverse. At the 2020 Valorant, Summer Cup Team SoloMid was sent to the losers bracket by the Sentinels but managed to fight their way back to face them again in the finals. However, the Sentinels kept the upper-hand and took the victory. This time at the FaZe Clan Invitational, it was Team SoloMid who would have the last laugh.

This time it was Team SoloMid that sent the Sentinels to the losers bracket with a 2-0 match in the semi-finals. The Sentinels would have to beat out Immortals in order to qualify for the grand finals and have a chance at reclaiming glory. It was an easy 2- 0 for the Sentinels and the rematch would determine who the superior team was. It was a close, hard-fought match in a best of 5 which went the distance. But the final score ended in Team SoloMids favor 3 to 2.
