Welcome home, @YACINELAGHMARI!

He joins our active roster for the upcoming #VALORANTLCQ 💪

After nearly qualifying for Champions 2021, Guild parted ways with most of the roster sans Saif "Sayf" Jibraeel and Leo "Leo" Jannesson. Guild rebuilt their roster with the likes of Russ, Nikita "trexx" Cherednichenko, and IGL Jose "koldamenta" Luis Aranguren.

Guild qualified for Stage 1: EMEA Challengers via EU Challengers. They ended with a 3-2 record after going on a three-game winning streak at the start of the split. As a result, they came into playoffs as the Group B third-seed. Guild's run was short-lived as they were eliminated by M3 Champions M3 Champions Europe Rank # Jady Yaroslav Nikolaev purp0 Semyon Borchev nAts Ayaz Akhmetshin sheydos Bogdan Naumov Chronicle Timofey Khromov Redgar Igor Vlasov .

In Stage 2, Guild turned over a new leaf, qualifying for playoffs as the Group B first seed. The roster went on a hot streak as their win over M3C solidified their spot in Masters: Copenhagen. In Masters, Guild qualified as the Group A first seed after defeating then reigning champions OpTic Gaming OpTic Gaming North America Rank # crashies Austin Roberts FNS Pujan Mehta Victor Victor Wong Marved Jimmy Nguyen yay Jaccob Whiteaker and KRÜ Esports KRÜ Esports Latin America South Rank #1 delz1k Joaquin Espinoza NagZ Juan Pablo Lopez Klaus Nicolas Ferrari Mazino Roberto Rivas keznit Angelo Mori .
