VALUABLE Champions, Riot Games’ biggest international FPS tournament, takes place from December 1 to 12 in Berlin, Germany.
The first VALUABLE world championship has a total of 16 teams– four teams from Europe, three from North America, three from Brazil, three from Southeast Asia, one from Korea, one from Japan and one from South America – and are dominated by European teams.
Team Liquid, Acend, Gambit and Fnatic—All teams from EMEA– made it to the knockout round and all but the latter team made it to the semi-finals. Cloud9 Blue was the only North American team to make it to the quarterfinals, but they fell to Liquid immediately.
What is surprising is that KRÜ Esports, a Chilean team from South America, eliminated Sentinels in the group stage and Fnatic in the quarterfinals to qualify for the semi-finals. They only stopped at the hands of Gambit.
Although Liquid were considered one of the strongest teams at the event, they were no match for Acend in the semifinals. Mehmet Yağız “cNed” İpek and the crew completely dominated that match, conceding only 11 rounds to Liquid in the two maps they played.
