VCT Americas League's regular season is nearing its end as the teams are now preparing for the playoff season. The upcoming days will offer a tough challenge to the remaining teams as they look to deliver their best to make it to the tournament's next stage. That said, Week 6 had a few great games that included matchups like EG vs Sentinels. While the latter had a heartbreaking defeat, they still put up a decent fight against their opponents.

After their game against EG, Kushal Bhattacharyya from Sportskeeda Esports had the opportunity to talk to the current Sentinels coach, Kaplan, and ask him a few questions about their game at the tournament.

Q: Was the game today up to your expectations?

Kaplan: No, it was not.

Q: How much has the roster improved since you stepped in? Are the results satisfactory?

Kaplan: Honestly, we haven't improved enough, and the results have been unsatisfactory.

Q: Why do you think Sentinels struggled so much trying to catch up to EG’s lead?

Kaplan: I think, at this point, the issues we have are beyond in-game. We just need to find better ways to blend as a team and have more confidence and ideas flowing as we play.

Q: How much do you think TenZ’s break affected the roster mentally moving forward in the VCT Americas League?

Kaplan: I don't think that's a major cause for any of our issues right now.

Q: What do you think Sentinels need to improve the most now in the VCT Americas League?

Kaplan: I think everyone on the team needs to show that they really want it. And we all need to make the effort to feel more like a team.

Q: Which team are you the most excited to face moving forward in the league?

Kaplan: I'm excited to face FURIA as we continue to work through our issues. They are a strong team, it would be a good challenge for us. It can be a tough matchup at this point, and I'm expecting a challenging game.
