With the return of in-game leader Kim “Zest” Gi-seok and role adjustments that saw Yu “BuZz” Byung-chul step into the sentinel role, DRX look stronger than ever. Their tactical playstyle and utility usage has impressed even Sentinels superstar Tyson “TenZ” Ngo, and he may actually be rooting for them.
“I’ll cheer for DRX. That’s the only team I’ll be biased toward,” said TenZ, during a recent Masters Reykjavik 2022 watch party stream.
Sentinels TenZ says he’s a fan of how DRX plays
DRX and The Guard are the two strongest teams at Masters Reykjavik, according to TenZ. However, in a head-to-head matchup between the two, the Sentinels player appears inclined to give the advantage to the Korean team.
“The Guard is the best team in North America at working together. But I still think that the way DRX uses utility together is better,” he explained.
“I’m a fan of how they play. I feel like with the way they play, you can definitely see how much hard work they put in. I’m biased toward their playstyle and it’s really fun to watch. They work together really well.”
In fact, TenZ is hoping that a new region other than North America or EMEA will win Masters Reykjavik this year. “Those are the only teams that have won an event so far, so I think it’d be really cool and spice things up a lot,” he added.
Compared to CS:GO, Valorant is shaping up to be a lot more competitive across different regions. While Valve’s shooter is mainly dominated by European teams, Valorant has seen teams like XERXIA Esports and LOUD prove themselves fully capable of pushing their North American and European counterparts to the limit.
