The LVL Clash 2 Valorant Ignition Series event marks the final event in the tournament series for Europe. 16 of the region’s best teams battled it out for €15,000 and regional glory, with G2 Esports coming out on top.

European Valorant has been dominated by one force ⁠— G2 Esports. They’ve hardly been challenged, having only lost one best of three across all the previous Ignition Series events.

Many wondered if the balance of power shift just as the Ignition chapter ends. And the answer is no, as G2 comfortably (for the most part) overtook all opponents in LVL Clash 2. Following on from the successful first clash in beta, this event had more on the line and bigger bragging rights up for grabs.

With almost double the prize pool on offer ⁠— €15,000 ⁠— and plenty of bragging rights, this was arguably the most important event in European Valorant so far. While FPX proved a tough test and Bonk made an incredible run, G2 ultimately cemented themselves as the best team in Europe (at the very least). And they didn’t think it was surprising at all.

Who played in LVL Clash 2?

16 of the best Valorant teams in Europe took battle in LVL Clash 2, split into four groups. 13 of the teams, including Liquid, G2 Esports, BIG, Ninjas in Pyjamas, FPX, Giants Gaming, and BBL Esports were invited.

Valorando ⁠— a German squad ⁠— were invited after taking home the beta tournament. Angry Titans and Wave Esports qualified through the Contenders Cup on August 23. But it was G2 who separated themselves from the pack, not losing a map, and deciding that they’re tired of Europe and want to beat TSM on LAN next.
