Riot has announced its list of watch party streamers for the VALORANT Champions Tour Stage 1 Masters, which includes Sentinels players Shahzeb “ShahZaM” Khan and Tyson “TenZ” Ngo. Although ShahZaM and TenZ are out of the tournament, they will be able to comment and analyze while watching the tournament live with the fans at the first international tournament of the year, which started on Sunday.
Turkish publishers Miafitz, Wtcn, ubeka, Alptv, Eylul, Saamtwo, Berrie, Cigdemt and Sizophren were included in the list.
Fans had seen these two players lift the Masters: Reykjavík trophy in 2021. But now, in 2022, the Sentinels couldn't make it out of NA Challengers 1. Despite showing bright moments throughout the tournament, the group stages ended with a score of 3-2. Their losses were against The Guard and Version1. With these losses, they fell into the losing group and were subsequently eliminated from the tournament.
Watch Party returns to VALORANT
As is customary at international Riot competitions, fans will be able to watch tournament games through multiple streams that offer different types of content tailored to different audiences. For example, the popular Plat Chat co-stream for 2021 Masters 3 Berlin and VCT Champions 2021 hosted a group of analysts with more casual and uncensored comments compared to the official release. At the same time, Ludwig “Ludwig” Ahgren and Guy “Dr. Disrespect” Beahm co-broadcast Masters 3 Berlin, drawing many of his own fans onto the competitive scene.
This time around, the list of watch parties includes G2 Esports, The Guard and XERXIA Esports, as well as streamers like Kyedae, Plat Chat gang, Tarik “tarik” Celik and more. Meanwhile, ShahZaM and TenZ will be broadcasting on their respective Twitch channels. The tournament will run from Sunday until April 24.
