    It is common to see, nowadays, professional championships of electronic games. The large number of fans of games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive or League of Legends itself, in addition to several other games, makes the development companies promote professional championships with very high rewards, being watched by thousands of players simultaneously. Championships like the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Majors and the League of Legends World Championship often fill arenas with fans during their games.



    Due to the success of Valorant's launch, as expected, many E-Sport organizations, as electronic sport is known, are already looking to assemble their team in order to be the biggest within Valorant's competitive. Big names in the E-Sport world have already organized their teams, and most of them have hired renowned players in other games to compose their team. Below, we'll review everything we know about the top teams in the North America region.

    T1

    T1, one of the most successful League of Legends organizations of all time, is also focused on Valorant. The team has signed former renowned CS:GO players to its team.

    The current T1 lineup has the following players:

    Braxton “brax” Pierce
    Keven “AZK” Larivière
    Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham
    Austin “crashies” Roberts
    Victor “food” Wong


    Technician: Daniel “fRoD” Montaner


    To date, the T1 team has had huge success in early Valorant events, with brax showing why he was considered a prodigy. The team has arguably been the most successful in North America, reaching first place in the T1 Invitational, 100 Thieves Invitational, and Code Green Invitational. Most recently, the team won a highly contested match against TSM in the Twitch Rivals Launch Showdown Finals.

    Gen G

    Gen.G is a renowned organization in the E-Sports scene, which has professional teams in several games in the competitive scene. The team chose to hire the former CS:GO squad, called the French Canadians, to make up their Valorant team. They immediately showed their worth by winning the Gen.G-branded T1 x Nerd Street Gamers Invitational. While brax is arguably the top man in T1, all five members of Gen.G have emerged and shown their true potential.

    The current Gen.G lineup has the following players:

    Keven “PLAYER1” Champagne
    Danny “Hyung” Huynh
    Loic “Effys” Sauvageau
    Anthony “gMd” Guimond
    Michael “MkaeL” DeLuca

    Coach: Andrew "Blank" Leverette

    So far, Gen.G has proven to be at the top of North America's Valorant, and will continue to be a favorite in every tournament they play in.

    Matthew “Wardell” Yu
    Yassine “Subroza” Taoufik
    Taylor “drone” Johnson

    Technician: Taylor “Tailored” Broomall


    TSM was consistently in the top three in Valorant's early tournaments, but suffering heavy losses. Brax's team, T1, was very strong at the T1 x Nerd Street Gamers Invitational and Gen G won at Nerd Street Gamers – Open 2.

    Still, with a mix of popular veterans and young players, TSM is very likely to grow and be one of the best teams on the scene.

    Sentinels

    Teaming with teams in games like Fortnite and Apex Legends, Sentinels have chosen to sign big names like Overwatch League MVP Jay “sinatraa” Wonn, Shahzeeb “ShahZaM” Khan and Hunter “Sick” Mims.

    The current Sentinels lineup has the following players:

    Jay “sinatraa” Wonn
    Shahzeeb “ShahZaM” Khan
    Hunter “Sick” Mims
    Jared “zombs” Gitlin
    Michael "according to" Gulino

    To date, the team has finished in the top 8 at Elite Esports – Rivalry Bowl North America, as well as a top 6 spot in the T1 x Nerd Street Gamers Invitational.

    Despite not getting the initial results expected, it's still too early to start getting worried. The team will continue to practice and will look to improve for the next competitions.

    Immortals

    Known primarily for their teams in CS:GO and League Of Legends, Immortals has also chosen to enter Valorant's competitive.

    The current Immortals lineup has the following players:

    Joseph “Bjor” Bjorklund
    Noah “jcStanni” Smit
    Yannick “KOLER” Blanchette
    Amgalan “genghsta” Nemekhbayar
    Peter “Asuna” Mazuryk

    Coach: Jordan "Gunba" Graham

    To date, Immortals have been quieter than the other North American teams in Valorant, and have yet to compete in many tournaments. So it's a complete mystery how Immortals ranks among other North American esports teams in Valorant.
