As two of the most popular and successful players in the Valorant community, Kyedae and TenZ have faced their fair share of losses and disappointments. After Sentinels’ recent defeat to NRG at the VCT Americas, Kyedae shared how they cope with the stress and toxicity that often follow competitive defeats.

Kyedae revealed that TenZ prefers to have some alone time after a tough loss, rather than immediate comfort or consolation. They then spend time together, watching anime and relaxing. Kyedae emphasized that different people have different coping mechanisms, and what works for them may not work for everyone.

The couple’s focus is always on preparing for the next match and not lingering on past losses. Kyedae acknowledged the pressure and stress that comes with being a high-profile player like TenZ, but also highlighted the toxicity and negativity that can arise from comparisons and expectations.

Despite the disappointment of defeat, Kyedae and TenZ prioritize their mental health and well-being by valuing their chill time and finding ways to relax and recharge. By sharing their coping strategies, they offer a valuable reminder that taking care of oneself is just as important as winning on the battlefield.
