Gambit Esports ends KR Esports’ Dream Run

KRÜ Esports’ round at Valorant Champions has come to an end as things boil down to extra time in the third and final formation of this year’s semi-finals. From a 0-2 defeat to reaching the semifinals against the Stage 3 champions, KRÜ Esports’ run at the event has been unimpressive. Team LATAM took the lead in the semi-finals but Gambit will be the team to reach the grand final. Gambit was trailed 4-10 in the final map of the semifinals and the team turned the game around with a hard-fought victory.

Valorant Champions Semi-Final – KR Esports vs Gambit Esports

The match between Gambit and KRÜ couldn’t have gone better as both teams played arguably the best match at the event to date. Three maps and 75 rounds later, Gambit barely got past KRÜ thanks to an end-game stage by Ayaz “nAts” Akhmetshin.

Map 1 – Breeze (Gambit Esports won 13-8)

KRÜ Esports got off to a strong start with an 8-4 lead in the first half but Gambit turned up the heat and didn’t lose a single round of the match with a 9-0 scoreline throughout the second half. Gambit’s Timofey “Chronicle” Khromov and KRÜ’s Juan Pablo “NagZet” Lopez both had one game day on the field and the trend continued to increase until the final game.

Map 2 – Ascent (KR Esports won 13-7)

After Gambit’s 13-8 win over Breeze, KRÜ responded with a more impressive 13-7 against the European giants. It was Roberto “Mazino” Rivas from KRÜ who made the difference for the LATAM team as the player finished the match with an Average Combat Score of 383 and a NR 2.33.

Map 3 – Bind (Gambit Esports won 18-16)

The third and final game of the series just refused to end with both teams extending injury time until round 34. KRÜ Esports won the first half 8-4 and Gambit Esports repeated KRÜ’s performance with their own 8-4 in the second half. It all boils down to when nAts gets the last two lives needed to get Gambit into the finals.
