This weekend, the VCT 2022 EMEA Stage 1 Challengers will host a high-level Valorant competition. Only three series could be played in Week 4 due to the postponement of Week 3’s matches. All games should be played according to the schedule this week. Let’s go into the specifics of the situation in which teams will be playing their last cards.
G2 Esports VS Guild Esports
For both teams, this Valorant series has various implications. G2 Esports hopes to obtain a win and escape out of the relegation zone, while Guild Esports wants to extend its lead and unbeaten streak in the league. However, accomplishing this isn’t as simple as it appears.
G2 recently reintroduced Oscar Caellas “mixwell” Colocho to the roster as a substitute for Wassim “keloqz” Cista, with the hopes of improving the situation. Last week, the European powerhouse faced the last World Champion Acend in its debut game of Valorant with the new design. For G2, snatching the first map point wasn’t enough. Despite putting up a fight against a formidable opponent, Mixwell and his companions came up short and lost the match.
This week, they’ll face Guild Esports in this high-level Valorant competition, probably the finest squad in the group stage. Guild hasn’t lost a single series since the start of the 2022 season, thanks to spot-on improvements. Aside from that, the roster improves week after week, both individually and collectively. Guild Esports is the favorite for this matchup, based on both teams’ recent form graphs.
Funplus Phoenix VS Team Liquid
If everything goes according to plan and no problems arise, the match between FunPlus Phoenix and Team Liquid will undoubtedly be the match of the week. FPX kicked off the VCT 2022 EMEA Stage 1 with a bang, defeating BIG and Gambit Esports, one of the finest teams in the world of Valorant competition. Despite the convincing victories in the previous two weeks, FPX displayed some flaws from time to time, and Liquid will have to capitalize on them.
Team Liquid, on the other hand, wasn’t in the best of shape at the start of the season of this Valorant competition. Despite finishing second with two victories, the European team struggled to execute their game plans until last week. Finally, Liquid won a dominating victory over LDN UTD in week four.
The Team Liquid was able to execute its game plan in the Valorant series in which Elias “Jamppi” Olkkonen racked up 40 kills and 241 ACS, despite the fact that some of its players weren’t in the finest of shape. However, against FunPlus Phoenix, the squad will need every member of its lineup to rise up. Otherwise, it’ll be a fast 2-0 victory for FPX.
