In a surprising turn of events, Rory "dephh" Jackson has announced his departure from Sentinels, leaving the organization and becoming a free agent. The decision comes amidst Sentinels' struggles in the VCT 2023 Americas League, where they have encountered a series of setbacks. As fans eagerly await Sentinels' roster update, speculation arises regarding the future direction of the team.
Just two weeks ago, dephh bid farewell to Sentinels, expressing his intentions to take a break and reflect on his future plans. This announcement coincided with the team's announcement of TenZ's return to the main roster, signifying a significant change within the organization.
As you may know I am not a part of the Sentinels . We left things amicably and I decided it was best for me to no longer continue playing the split.— dephh (@dephhgg) May 12, 2023
The team didn't gel how we envisoned it to, and I will bare some of the responsbility for that. 1/3
Sentinels' recent performance in the VCT 2023 Americas League has been less than stellar, with only two wins and five losses, keeping them away from the playoff bracket. The team has undergone various roster changes, including alterations to the coaching staff. The departure of head coach Sykko led to Kaplan's promotion to the position.
Additionally, Marved temporarily substituted for TenZ due to the latter's injury, injecting enthusiasm into the team and making a strong impact. Now, Marved finds himself alongside TenZ on the new Sentinels lineup.
Dephh's departure leaves fans wondering about the future direction of the team. The British player, who previously represented Dignitas and XSET, had joined Sentinels at the beginning of the 2023 season. However, his time with the organization yielded mixed results, and Sentinels' recent struggles likely played a role in his decision.
With dephh's exit, the spotlight shifts to the In-Game Leader (IGL) position within the roster. As Sentinels gears up for the next phase, the question arises: Who will step up and lead the team in their upcoming games? Fans eagerly anticipate the announcement of Sentinels' roster update, which the organization has teased for tomorrow.

As the dust settles following dephh's departure from Sentinels, the team braces for an uncertain future. With roster changes already in motion and a pending announcement on the horizon, Sentinels must regroup and find their rhythm once again. The VCT 2023 Americas League will serve as the proving ground for this revamped lineup, and fans eagerly await the team's performance in the upcoming games.
