Valorant’s biggest tournament of 2020 is coming to a close, and we are days away from the NA grand finals. 8 teams will be competing for $100,000. Riot Games revealed today that the official stream would be co-streamed by TSM Myth and Ninja.
Myth is a popular streamer who has been a part of the Valorant community. He is currently not competing professionally, but he has been a part of competitive esports in the past. Myth does regular commentary on Valorant’s First Strike matches on his stream. Ninja is the most followed streamer on Twitch and is a Radiant-ranked player in Valorant.
The event will begin on December 3, with Envy facing off against Immortals and TSM competing against Renegades. On December 4, Sentinels will face FaZe and 100 Thieves will play against T1. The winners of each match will compete in the semi-finals on December 5. The finalists will proceed to compete in a best-of-five-set on December 6. All matches are scheduled at 3:00 PM EST (1:30 AM IST).
TSM and Sentinels are the two biggest teams headed into the First Strike finals. They are considered to be the top two teams in North America but they have not faced each other in nearly four months. Both the teams have had zero changes since the last time they competed against each other at the August FaZe Clan Invitational. TSM took the win back then, and we cannot wait to see how the rivalry shapes up.
Despite TSM being considered as one of the best teams in NA, they have struggled with consistency with 100 Thieves knocking them out of the NSG Closed Qualifier earlier in November. TSM was forced to qualify for the Valorant First Strike finals through the second event.
Sentinels, on the other hand, is very consistent and has players like Sinatraa, who is capable of adapting to any situation. The ex-Overwatch Pro has proven to be very flexible with his agent selection and his ability to be at the top of the scoreboards despite playing a supporting role from time to time makes him lethal. But Sentinels have faltered in the past as well with losses against Gen.G and 100 Thieves revealing weaknesses in their teamwork.
With all eight teams being stacked with talent, we can’t wait to see who takes home the grand finals. Fans can watch the Valorant First Strike finals on Twitch or YouTube at Riot’s official channels from December 3.
