The first international VCT LAN event awaits Valorant’s best teams — and both Europe & North America will be keen on stamping their authority.

Looking ahead to the event, there are key players from each region that are destined to make the biggest impact. As phenomenal performances previously came from the likes of Diondre ‘YaBoiDre’ Bond, Peter ‘Asuna’ Mazuryk, and Mehmet Yağız ‘cNed’ İpek, we’ve rounded up the top 10 hottest talents heading into Stage 2.

Guild Esports’ Leo ‘Leo’ Jannesson is undoubtedly one to watch out for, despite the team being underdogs in EU’s Stage 1 Masters. However, the player showed phenomenal skill in controlling the tempo of the rounds they played in, showing that the roster could go to untold heights.


FPX’s Andrei ‘Shao’ Kiprskii proved that he can maintain fantastic composure in a tight spot. While the star is undoubtedly continuing to grow, Stage 2 looks set to see the player make a name for himself.

Also appearing in our list is one player who surprised everyone by finishing in 3rd place at NA Masters 1: Gen.G’s Kenneth ‘koosta’ Suen. Playing the Sentinel role to perfection, he controlled the sights for his team.

Taking the top spot on our list, though, is of course, Sentinels’ Tyson ‘TenZ’ Ngo. Having picked up the player just before Masters began, he absolutely dominated the event. Outplaying opponents with epic displays of gunskill, everyone needs to watch out when matched up against him.
