G2 have proved once again at the Allied Esports Odyssey that they’re one of the best Valorant teams in Europe, if not the world, after knocking out FunPlusPhoenix and taking home the lion’s share of €15,000.

G2 Esports are still undefeated in Grand Finals. After winning their third consecutive event with a convincing playoff run in the Mandatory.GG Cup Playoffs, Mixwell and co. continued their hot streak and made it four Ignition Series event wins in a row.

Valorant Allied Esports Odyssey recap

The Allied Esports Odyssey panned out in the early stages as most expected. Big names like G2, FunPlusPhoenix, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and Team Liquid managed to make it through the group stage to the final knockout round.

G2 managed to get revenge on FunPlusPhoenix twice in the playoff round for a loss they were handed during the group stage. The first one sent Phoenix down to the losers bracket, where they would easily breeze past NiP to then beat Team Liquid in the loser’s bracket finals and move on to the main event.

On the other side of the playoffs, G2 played like the unstoppable force they’ve become known as, beating Liquid in the upper bracket finals to one again face off with FunPlusPhoenix in the Grand Finals.

Once there, it was definitely a one-sided affair, with G2 taking two matches in a row to wrap up the best of three in record time. With four first-place finishes in the biggest Valorant events so far, it’s safe to say G2 is riding high as one of the top teams in the game’s early competitive days.

Valorant Allied Esports Odyssey: Format

Six teams competed across six days. The Regular Season was played between August 11 – 15; each match was a best-of-two series and teams collected points depending on the outcome of each match.

The top four teams from the Regular Season progressed to the Finals Bracket (FunPlus Phoenix, G2, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and Team Liquid). Each match in the Playoffs was played as a best-of-one series — aside from the Grand Final, which was played as a best-of-three matchup.

As with the FaZe Clan Invitational, Killjoy was disabled for the tournament, after her infamous introduction in Patch 1.05. The six teams competing were:

  • G2 Esports (Mixwell, paTiTek, pyth, ardiis, Davidp).
  • Ninjas in Pyjamas (rhyme, luckeRRR, Fearoth, HyP, CREA).
  • Team Liquid (ec1s, soulcas, Kryptix, L1NK, ScreaM, Sliggy [C]).
  • Vodafone Giants (Fit1nho, Yurii, donQ, exerZ, jonba, HITBOX [C]).
  • FunPlus Phoenix (ShadoW, ANGE1, Zyppan, Shao, Meddo, d00mbr0s [C]).
  • BBL Esports (russ, AsLanM4shadoW, cNed, kerimhan, legoo).

Riot Games has now unveiled its grand plans for Act III of Episode 1 in Valorant, including a first look at the brand new agent. There’s also the new map, Icebox, and first details of the battle pass.

Riot already confirmed the brand new map, Icebox, the second new map coming to the game since launch.

In addition, a new Agent is joining the roster, but at the time of writing, Riot is keeping their exact name, abilities and lore under wraps.

Here’s everything you need to know about Valorant Episode 1, Act 3:

ADJUSTED ACT III ROADMAP

EP1_Act3_modal_lite.jpg

Riot says they’re “closing Episode 1 with a banger of a finish.” A new Map, fresh 50-tiered Battlepass, changes to competitive mode, and the next Agent coming 2 weeks into the act.

New Map: Icebox (October 13 Unrated, October 27 Competitive)

An abandoned Kingdom research facility in the arctic wilderness is the next location to flex your aim and abilities. Pierce the dense snow cover as an Attacker to plant the Spike, and outplay as a Defender using ziplines to reach new and dangerous heights.

The two objective sites on Icebox favor frequent skirmishes, sharp aim, and adaptive play.

Because the new map is being pushed live earlier than was planned, the new Agent will be delayed. The Agent will release 2 weeks (one patch cycle) after the start of Act III. This will allow the devs to sort out any stability issues.

Competitive Refresh (October 27)

Riot is making some changes to how ranking works in the competitive mode of Valorant. The developers say they are working “on the long term health of organized team play.”

  • New Competitive Act
  • Rank queue lowered from 6 tiers to 3 tiers
  • Select preferred server, to improve ping
  • Immortal+ rank outcomes are decided 100% by wins and losses

You can check out a full breakdown of the changes coming in Act III and beyond here.

Act III Battlepass (October 13)

As with each new act, a fresh Battlepass is also dropping on October 13:

Riot explains that the Battlepass is being slightly improved for Act III though. Weekly missions will now progress quicker for “faster unlocks” and additional epilogue tiers.

“Collect heads, rake in the XP, then snap on Act III exclusives like the “Chilly McFreeze” Gun Buddy to match your arctic battles, the “Radianite Hazard” Player Card, and the Viper Spray that reminds you to wash your hands.

Purchase the Act III Premium Battlepass to unlock more tiers of VALORANT items like the Ruin Vandal, “Disco Ball” Gun Buddy, and the Surge Bucky (with variants!).”

New weapon skin: Singularity (October 13)

“Singularity exists in a far future, vast in its journey from the beyond. Powerful, abstract, and mysterious. None know where it came from or how it came to be.

Harness its unstable force on the Phantom, Sheriff, Spectre, Ares, and Melee when you buy the Singularity bundle.”

Gun Buddy: Welcome Middle East and North Africa

More (low ping) challengers to the Radiant throne have arrived from the Middle East and North Africa.

Log in during October 28 to earn the Dallah Gun Buddy and celebrate their homecoming.

New Agent: ??? (October 27)
