Valorant star Shahzeb ‘ShahZaM‘ Khan has revealed that he chose to sign with G2 Esports over many other teams.
The former Sentinels player officially joined G2 Esports’ new NA-based team Valorant as its in-game leader on December 12.
He reunited with former Sentinels teammate Michael ‘dapr’ Gulino. Assembled a new roster that includes the former Version 1 duo of Erik ‘penny’ Penny and Maxim ‘ wipe’ Shepelev.
Team coach Ian ‘Immi’ Harding welcomes young star OXY as a player with “good communication” and a “good agent pool.”
G2 Esports appears to be one of the strongest teams heading into the NA Valorant Challengers League. And in a recent Livestream, ShahZaM revealed that he chose G2 over several other teams. But did not say if any of those teams are VCT partners.
“What if there are other offers besides G2? I’ll make it count,” he told viewers.
