The Road to VALORANT First Strike

The path towards the First Strike main event was a tough one for most teams involved: FaZe Clan had to struggle with -perhaps- the toughest group of all, alongside NRG, TSM and Andbox. They eventually overcame the hurdle and beat Gen.G during the QFs to reach the final main event. T1’s journey was a less complicated one thanks to a formidable player roster. They easily defeated top-rated Cloud9 and Dignitas teams.   

Meanwhile. Immortals survived some health crises, such as the sudden exit of ShoT_UP Orlowski. Later on, with the aid of stand-in “Shanks” Ngo, Immortals pushed through and earned their golden ticket. TSM almost just slid through the Closed Qualifies, supported by a highly combative playstyle. 

Upon our last check, T1 remains favorite against FaZe in the Semifinal match happening in some hours with a -175 moneyline price. The VALORANT First Strike main event will begin on December 3rd, 2020.
