Things got much worse when a few players from the roster used an unusual crosshair. This directly showcased lack of respect for the opposing team, which certainly portrayed the org in a bad light.

Team Sentinel is rather notorious for their brash behavior inside the professional games. They are known to teabag slain enemies, and even excessively shooting the corpse after winning the round. Riot Games has already laid down guidelines against such behavior, and sadly it produced no significant effect. It looks like the gaming studio needs to come up with a more stringent policy to counteract this issue permanently.

Twitter reacts to Valorant pro’s public apology

The pro player Zombs realized the severity of his offense and took the necessary steps to make amends. However, this move was not enough to please the fans, as they shared their thoughts about the same.

One enthusiastic fan of the professional scene vented out his frustration on the thread. He left a rather massive tweet, which became the highlight of the entire thread.

This fan of the organization offered clarification on behalf of his favorite team. He suggested that the unusual crosshair was not used throughout the game, and it was merely a spectator glitch that made it seem so.

Team Sentinels really needs to change its ways, as the community generally remembers them for their unprofessional conduct. This totally overshadows the level of skill the entire roster possesses, and it also hurts their reputation.

This fan’s solution might work, but sadly it cannot be replicated to eradicate teabagging and other disrespectful behavior.

The crosshair was too goofy and yet Sentinel’s in-game leader, ShahZaM, had no problem top fragging the server.

Sentinel should really dial back on their antics if they wish to win over fans. The community already regards the team as one of the best in the entire professional set up, so it would be great to see them act more cordially.
