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.

To date, the T1 team has had huge success in early Valorant events, with brax showing why he was considered a prodigy.

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.

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

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.

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

Yannick “KOLER” Blanchette

Peter “Asuna” Mazuryk

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.
