VCT Masters Reykjavík won by NA Sentinels

Seven long days of VALORANT esports culminated today as VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT) Stage 2 Masters Reykjavík, the first big international tournament from Riot Games on this shooter, ended today with North America coming out on top as Sentinels beat FNATIC in the grand finals.

The first international VCT Masters tournament just finished with North America finally showing up as the best esports region. And in a dominating 3-0 fashion, Sentinels defeated European representative FNATIC to become the world’s first VALORANT champion. Consisting of primarily ex-CS:GO pros, the Sentinels roster didn’t lose a single match or one map throughout their run. Hunter “SicK” Mims from VALORANT’s Sentinels predicted this when talking about their entrance to the semifinals.

In the VCT Stage 2 Masters Reykjavík grand finals, FNATIC put up quite a fight, bringing two of three maps to overtime and the third map to 13-11. The European grand finalist performed well and made things very close. Tyson “TenZ” Ngo especially carried the team and even ended the tournament with the highest kill death score of 1.48.

Esports fans often believe that North America can’t win esports and Sentinels proved them wrong today with VALORANT, walking away with $200 thousand. Additionally, Sentinels did not come out as the only NA titan. VALORANT esports team Version1 entered VCT Masters Reykjavík seemingly as a dark horse but ended as one of the best. Version1 player Jordan “Zellsis” Montemurro expected success too as their team ended in 5th to 6th place.

Now that the first global VALORANT event is finished, teams and fans can look forward to the next event. Riot Games already announced the next location and event in VCT Stage 3 Masters Berlin. Although that competition is months away, matches will begin soon to find which team can prove the best. Will Sentinels and NA remain the dominant force in the next international tournament?
