Keeping up with Killjoy: Weekly Valorant recap

With VCT Last Chance Qualifiers on the horizon, we had a quiet week of Valorant news that included some teasers, team moves, and more.

Here's everything you missed from the past week in Valorant.

New Sentinel incoming!

The biggest news of the week was the official teaser and announcement of the next agent coming to Valorant. 

We don't have too much information about who the new Agent will be, but we know that they'll fill the role of a Sentinel - something Valorant players have been requesting for a while.

Will this break the KJ meta? We'll have to wait and see. The new agent probably won't come out until the next Episode.

100 Thieves replace Steel

In a surprising turn, we saw one of the top contenders in Last Chance, 100 Thieves, make a big move ahead of the tournament. Fans were stunned to hear that the org benched/dropped their in-game leader, Steel.

In replacement, b0i will be getting the start going forward.

Apart from some small comments by people like Nadeshot - who only said the team needed a change - we don't really know what happened there. With 100 Thieves being in a good position and so close to Last Chance Qualifiers, we can only assume that there's something going on behind the scenes.

We may or may not learn more on this one, but it's interesting nonetheless.

Fracture disabled in VCT Last Chance

Although the news to disable Fracture in VCT Game Changers made headlines, it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise.

Every new agent and map have been excluded from the following competitive event, but some players were surprised because Fracture has been out for a while, but it isn't too much of a big deal.

We'll see our first professional action on Fracture at the end-of-year Champions tournament.
