The first international Valorant LAN was one to remember with the VCT Stage 2 Masters in Iceland. 10 teams from across the world descended on Reykjavik to determine who was the best, but in the end it would be Sentinels taking the title home to North America.
- Sentinels sweep Fnatic 3-0 in the Grand Final BO5, taking home $200,000.
- TenZ and Sentinels didn’t drop a single map through the whole tournament.
- Fnatic battled their way through the Lower Bracket only to get shut down by Sentinels.
Reykjavik was one of the biggest moments in Valorant esports yet, as we were finally able to confirm that NA seems to be the best Valorant region of them all — so far.
VCT Stage 2 Masters in Iceland marked the game’s first “world championship,” with teams from seven regions descending on Reykjavik to duke it out for the title.
