Team Liquid continued their winning streak by securing the first spot in Red Bull’s second Home Ground Valorant tournament. The team managed to beat Acend in the grand final and went home with an extra €20.000.
Less than a month ago, Team Liquid also won the VCT: EMEA Last Chance Qualifier and qualified for the Valorant Champions. The team is looking much stronger than it did during the VCT: Stage 3 Challengers Playoffs, and with this renewed energy, they have a great shot at winning the final stage of the Valorant Champions Tour in December.
Liquid’s Fantastic Run
Team Liquid have demonstrated once again that they are one of the best Valorant teams in the world. With ScreaM’s deadly precision and Jamppi’s leadership, the European squad is a real force to be reckoned with.
During Red Bull Home Ground 2, Team Liquid completely dominated the opposition and finished the event strong. They only lost a single map in the grand finals against Acend, but everything prior to that match was smooth sailing.
Group D stood no chance against Team Liquid. Even the G2 giants had fallen easily. Before the playoffs, Team Liquid had a 3-0 score in their group and finished first.
Fast forward to the playoffs and it was the same situation – Liquid just kept dominating. Fnatic were the first to fall and TENSTAR followed soon after. The only time Liquid were actually trying hard was during the grand final, where each match was a back-and-forth between Team Liquid and Acend. Ultimately, Team Liquid emerged victorious and that’s where the story ended.
Can Liquid Surprise Again?
The Valorant Champions 2021 is almost here, and all 16 teams have already been selected. In less than a month, the biggest Valorant Champions Tour event of the year will take place in Berlin.
While the majority of the teams managed to qualify early through regional circuit points, Team Liquid had to go through the VCT: EMEA LCQ and qualified as one of the last few teams. However, this could be one of their biggest strengths.
While others have been waiting and relaxing, Team Liquid were honing their skills and working hard to improve their gameplay. Through that extra effort, they now gained two tournament wins. The monetary prize was great, but the confidence they gained through this journey was something even greater.
Riot Games have not yet revealed the team matchups, so we don’t know who Team Liquid will end up fighting. But judging by their recent performance, we’d say they’re ready for anyone. It’s going to be a tough road, but they can do it. They have already proven to be one of the top EU teams, but now it’s time to leave their mark on the rest of the world.
