VALORANT Champions Tour Masters Reykjavík: Team Power Rankings
The VALORANT Champions Tour Masters Reykjavík is set to bring together the best teams from different regions to compete on an international stage. Let’s take a look at the power rankings of each team and how they compare to their competition.
10) X10 Esports
X10 Esports holds the bottom spot in our power rankings, not because they lack skill, but because the Southeast Asian region is not known for its talent in FPS games. While X10 Esports has an impressive track record with no series losses in Stage Two and a win in Stage One, their lack of notable names besides Patiphan Chaiwong makes them a wildcard going into Masters Reykjavík.
9) KRU Esports
KRU Esports comes in at number nine with their eight-game win streak and strong performance in the LATAM Stage Two Challengers event. With former Overwatch and CS:GO players on their roster, KRU Esports has the potential to pull off an upset, but they still have much to prove on the international stage.
8) Sharks Esports
Sharks Esports, hailing from Brazil, is a talented team that performed well in the Challengers Finals, only facing defeat against Team Vikings. If they can maintain their performance, they have a chance to make a run in the tournament, but they might have to fight their way through the lower bracket.
7) Crazy Raccoon
Crazy Raccoon features a diverse roster with players from Overwatch and CS:GO backgrounds. While they may not be as well-known as some other teams, they have consistently defeated top squads in Japan and could extend their success to the international stage.
Version1 proved to be an underdog in the NA Challengers Finals, defeating strong teams like Cloud9 Blue and Envy. Although they didn’t beat Sentinels in both matches, their performance secured them a spot in Iceland. However, playing with a new player and less experience playing together may pose a challenge for Version1.
5) Team Vikings
Team Vikings, the dominant team from Brazil, went undefeated in the Stage Two Challengers Finals. With Brazil’s success in CS:GO, Team Vikings could bring that same level of achievement to VALORANT and give other regions a tough competition.
NUTURN had a flawless performance in the Korea Stage Two Challengers, beating Vision Strikers who were previously dominating the region. With their ability to adapt and led by a CS veteran, NUTURN should not be underestimated by fans or opponents.
Fnatic had a rocky start in Stage Two, but with roster changes and the addition of skilled players, they managed to qualify for the EMEA Challengers Playoffs. Despite their loss against Team Liquid, Fnatic remains one of the best teams in the world.
2) Team Liquid
Liquid entered VALORANT with a strong roster, including CS:GO legend Adil “Scream” Benrlitom. After struggling in the first stage, they made adjustments and signed former CS:GO player Elias “Jamppi” Olkkonen, resulting in a four-game win streak. Liquid will be a tough opponent for any team in the tournament.
Sentinels are the top pick for Masters Reykjavík, dominating the North American region since the start of the VALORANT Champions Tour. With a nine-game win streak, they are heading to Iceland fully prepared and ready to make a deep run in the tournament.
The VALORANT Champions Tour Masters Reykjavík will commence on May 24. Don’t forget to follow us on YouTube for more esports news and analysis.
