Acend did some weird sht today, took the L by benching zeek, but big W by signing ThinkingMansValo as a content creator.

I'm curious to see what the new player will bring to Acend...

Zeek said on Twitter that mental was not the issue and that he is in a really good spot mentally right now. He'll write a twitlonger about it later (according to his tweet)

Welp guess that's it for Turkish VCT, hope you guys bounce back next year...

And this is why coaches in valorant are never allowed to talk mid-round (if I recall correctly it's only in a tac timeout right? Not sure on that one).
If stuff like this happens without reporting it, it's not as bad considering an admin is in the call so that information cannot be given during the round while the coach has that information.

However, it's still really bad because any non-VCT/VRL competition does not have the resources to have an admin in the call, so thanks for calling it out in this article!

Optic strat:

  • not having anything left for grand final
  • lose grand final
  • ???

L1NK actually didn't want to play anymore as it was pure chaos in the team without an IGL and people playing off-role and stuff.
So it wasn't just that l1nk was benched, he benched himself in agreement with the org

I am not fully informed on this, so please correct me if I'm wrong and let's have an interesting discussion about this.

The reasons I see for this move:

  • VCT is over for the rest of the year (nice one Riot)
  • Next year franchising will fuck over most teams

If that's the case, this is actually a W for orgs and players from other teams, as it signals to Riot this is a dogshit system.
If they want to keep tier 1 orgs interested in their game, they have to make it worth their time and money to stay in Valorant.

Ofc very sad for the players, hope they find a home soon but I doubt it'll be even close to what LG payed them sadly...

I said the literal same thing when I read the title LMAO
First C9 getting rid of a player and coach, after that faze benching a player after their best performance since LCQ

I'm going with a friend who I've been hyped for majors since 2015 as teenagers.
Finally being able to go to one (in my own country even!) is a dream of both of us.
Thanks for the wishes it'll be insane! :D

read the article, Braveaf's is mainly based on the uncertainty of him being able to travel for bootcamps/LANs and Fnatic having difficulties paying him. Both caused by the war.
As for Magnum, idk man maybe they had a different vision for the team (which is clear because they benched 2 players and roleswapped 2 in which Mistic has never roleswapped for Fnatic before).
We don't know any insider information, but it clearly wasn't out of bad blood, I'm sure Magnum will find his place and that Fnatic had good reasons for benching him

Tenz is indeed not flexible enough, and that's a problem on sentinels (one of many) but Saya player IS flexible, same with yay.
Tenz is a meat head who can only play Reyna and Jett in a comp environment, meanwhile Saya f.a. can switch to raze or another duelist and will be doing amazingly on it.

you see japanese teams often with korean players so I don't think there's a language barrier, also it just makes sense, JP will get better as a region as they have to fight against a better region
JP is consistently performing poorly internationally so I think this makes sense

EMEA getting extra nerfed this event,
Top seed can't make it and one team has a sub.
Not to downplay Fearoth though, he's probably going to do amazingly, but it's never nice/ideal to have to play with a sub (baddyG exception to the rule lmao man's cracked)

To be specific: travel restriction for Shao/Suygetsu (Russia) and Ange1 (Ukraine) + Ardiis has covid.
That's 4/6 players that can't go.
Super unfortunate

As someone who literally bought tickets to the grand final of the PGL Antwerp Major, I agree that Valorant is more fun to watch

to be fair Riot thought they were weak (only 1 slot for masters/champions)
and thought brazil was strong (2 slots masters/champions)
but they saw how good latam was compared to brazil so they used one of the brazil spots for the BR/LATAM playoffs instead of just giving it to brazil

well if you say copium after a sentence like that it implies you're mocking people who are saying that sentence...
Such as "winnable COPIUM" when it's 1-12 or something along those lines

yeah ikr, Guild was just a bit of a gamble who would win as they've been so good recently, but the FPX game... that was honestly really surprising and out of nowhere. It's nice to see some good valorant and insane competition for those precious three Masters spots

idk if you've actually like watched the games but Mixwell didn't even use his util well. I'm sure he's good, because he is, but he's not a top level Jett. At least what he showed in 5 maps. There's no excuse for it and I hope he can be insane later on, but G2 cannot risk losing out on qualification if their "star player" doesn't know how to smoke off a sova dart
