Valorant Masters Reykjavik: G2 Esports and LOUD Qualify for Semi Finals
Valorant Masters Reykjavik is underway and the event is already full of shocks and surprises. Brazilian team LOUD sent Team Liquid to the lower bracket thanks to a solid performance last night. G2 Esports also ended the night with a comfortable win against ZETA Division. With LOUD and G2 Esports through to the semi-finals, all eyes will be on The Guard and Optic Gaming who will go up against each other tonight for a spot at the semis.
G2 Esports vs ZETA Division Recap
G2 Esports put on a dominant performance last night against ZETA Division, which is arguably the best Japanese Valorant team out there. Žygimantas “nukkye” Chmieliauskas helped G2 gain some serious momentum and the players refused to give any breathing room to their fierce opponents.
Despite some heroic moments from Shota “SugarZ3ro” Watanabe who secured an Ace against G2, the Japanese team could not keep up with the overwhelming aggression. G2 finished things off in style with a collateral kill by Oscar “mixwell” Cañellas Colocho. With a win in the bag, G2’s next opponent will be LOUD.
LOUD vs Team Liquid Recap
LOUD proved last night that Brazil is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to Valorant. With Acend dominating the world championships last year, LOUD is following in the footsteps of the world championship-winning team with dominant performances in this year’s Valorant Champions Tour competitive season. The team managed to take out Team Liquid with a solid 2-1 victory.
While the team did falter in the second map (Haven) by suffering an embarrassing 3-13 loss, it quickly recovered from the map loss and ended the series with a win. With Team Liquid getting knocked into the lower bracket, the team will now have to face off against ZETA Division for survival.
