These may have just been the qualifiers, but they certainly were one of the most action packed Valorant events we’ve seen since First Strike kicked off.
Nolpenki’s insane upset against Enterprise Gaming was one of the qualifier’s wildest moments. Enterprise gaming started the best-of-3 off with a dominant showing on Haven, only to be reverse swept in a strong showing from a team of previously unknown players. Safe to say it was a wild ride.
