Who is likely to win VCT 2022 North America Last Chance Qualifier?
There are many strong teams in the tournament. Stage 1 Champion The Guard, Cloud9, one of the most important teams of Stage 1, 100 Thieves, a new and strong team, and Sentinels, which has added one of the most recognizable names in the world, Shroud. On paper, it would not be wrong to say that everyone has a chance.
Since we haven’t seen the teams on the server for a while, it’s hard to predict how they will perform. However, it should be noted that the 100 Thieves roster is one step ahead. With the roster and technical team they have built, I think they will make a good work plan and come to this tournament ambitious.
