Why Sentinels Got Eliminated from Stage 3 Masters in Berlin

There’s no doubt that Sentinels is the best team in Valorant (or at least was). The team has had an undefeated streak, beating everyone that came in their way. But, the team faced two losses in a row that saw them getting eliminated from the Stage 3 Masters in Berlin at the hands of Envy. But why did that happen?
