Tarik Join Sentinels
Superstar streamer Tarik Celik has been officially signed by North American esports organization Sentinels, joining a long list of other big names in recent months.

Tarik, 26, recently collaborated with Sentinels and explained how the match came to be in a brief video interview. He also stated what audiences could hope for from joining forces long-term. According to Tarik, he opted to sign because he shares many similarities with the American organization.
