The VCT 2022 EMEA Stage 2 Challengers Group Stage is coming to an end. With the matches played this week, some teams that have made it to the playoffs have been determined. On the other hand, some teams gave up all their hopes for playoffs and started to focus on the Last Chance Qualifier. Here is the summary of week 4:
Acend vs G2 Esports
In the opening match of the week, Acend and G2 Esports faced off for the playoffs. G2, which started the season badly and could not get the desired results, once again lost its playoff hopes. Acend, on the other hand, made their name in the playoffs with their third win. The entire team of the roster showed a good game, taking almost equal kills.
Natus Vincere vs Team Liquid
There was a great fight for esports betting fans in the second match of the first day. Both teams did not give up during the match until the last moment and did their best to achieve the victory. Liquid won the first map 13-11, Natus Vincere won the second map 13-11, and Team Liquid won the third map 16-14. Navi lost their playoff chance with this heartbreaking loss.
BIG vs M3 Champions
BIG made the biggest surprise of the week for VALORANT betting followers. The German organization, which has not been able to win since EMEA Stage 1, started by beating M3 Champions, one of the strongest teams in the league, 2-0. The architect of this result, which surprised everyone, was the team’s duelist player, Twisten. Despite all the bad results, BIG can make it to the playoffs, albeit very slightly.
OG LDN UTD vs FunPlus Phoenix
CIS representative FunPlus Phoenix pick up where it left off. After losing to Fnatic in the first week, the team easily won all their matches, and had no difficulty against OG LDN UTD either. They took their third win, winning two maps 13-6 and 13-3. With this defeat, OG lost their playoff chance.
BBL Esports vs Guild Esports
BBL Esports’ only hope to make it to the playoffs was to win this series. The Turkish representative gave a hard time to its opponent in both matches, but it could not reach a result. The leader of Group B, Guild Esports, won the maps 14-12 and 13-10 and marked another victory. On the other hand, BBL Esports will try to qualify for the Last Chance Qualifier.
FOCUS vs Fnatic
In the closing match of the week, the last and the first teams of Group A competed. Taking VCT 2022 EMEA Stage 2 by storm, Fnatic didn’t let anyone stop them. The team, which also managed to beat the German representative FOKUS 2-0, got its 4th victory and guaranteed to finish the group leader. FOKUS, on the other hand, has not yet met with a victory and only one match remains.
VCT 2022 EMEA Stage 2 will continue next week with the last week of the Group Stage. Last week will be crucial for the playoff run in Group B and for Circuit points in Group A.
