Top 5 teams to keep an eye on in the EU Valorant Champions Tour Stage 3 Challengers 2
5) Rix.GG Thunder
Rix.GG Thunder has got a brilliant set of players in its Valorant roster. In early 2021, the team got a new bunch of talented players from the EU region. Even though it didn’t make it to any of the Challengers’ main events in either Stage One or Two, it was successful in Stage Three.
Seeing the team grow both regionally and internationally, it has the potential to grab everyone’s attention with their performance.
Last time, Alliance qualified to the VCT 2021: Europe Stage 3 Challengers 1 – Closed Qualifier but didn’t make it further. Hence, seeing it fight again to make a stronger comeback will be worth witnessing. Naturally, fans expect a lot from the squad.
3) Team Vitality
Team Vitality recently got Egyptian player Mohamed “Shalaby” Shalaby added to the team. He was formerly a part of Anubis Gaming and is now a valuable player in the squad. Team Vitality have made a lot of changes to its Valorant roster over the past few months. Hence, getting to see the team’s performance in the tournament will be intriguing.
2) Team Liquid
Although Team Liquid didn’t win the VCT Stage 2 Masters – Reykjavík, it was one of the strongest teams from the region to make its way to it. With Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom and Elias “Jamppi” Olkkonen in the team, Team Liquid has always dominated its opponents.
Last time, it was the winner of VCT 2021: EMEA Stage 2 Challengers Finals, hence it will be interesting to watch the squad fight again to get into the EMEA Stage 3 Challengers Playoffs.
Fnatic has been one of the top dominating teams in the EU region. It was the runner-up of the Valorant Champions Tour Stage 2 Masters – Reykjavík. Even though the team has faced lots of ups and downs, it has always come back stronger. It has remained the winner of the VCT 2021: Europe Stage 2 Challengers 2, and even qualified for the VCT Stage 2 Masters – Reykjavík finals.
