Team Liquid Triumphs at EMEA Last Chance

The EMEA Last Chance tournament did not have a particular favorite; all the teams were equally strong. However, once again, Team Liquid proved to be the best.

This may have been the most challenging tournament of the year for EMEA teams. The top 8 teams from Europe, CIS, and Turkey competed against each other for one slot at the Valorant Champions; the winner took it all, and the rest were left with virtually nothing. And this time, the ones who took it all were the folks from Team Liquid.

Since ScreaM's team failed to qualify for the recent Valorant Masters tournament, many people underestimated them and rather expected G2 Esports, Guild, or SuperMassive Blaze to succeed. However, Team Liquid once again proved that they are still one of the top teams out there, and one defeat can't break them, no matter how big it is. Let's take a look at the path they had to take to secure that sweet Champions slot.

As you can see, Team Liquid did not have an easy road. Okay, you can say that One Breath Gaming was an underdog of this tournament, so this 2:0 score (with Ascent being won 13:0 by Team Liquid) comes as no surprise. However, for the next 3 matches, they had to face Guild and G2, teams that are not only considered the best in the EMEA region, but also in the entire Valorant eSports scene.

The final standings of the EMEA Last Chance tournament go as follows:

1st placeTeam Liquid (Qualified for Champions)

4th placeFutbolist
