Team liquid defeats Guild Escorts, in Valorant EMEA LCQ and qualifies for Valorant Champions.
Valorant EMEA LCQ consisted of 8 teams from the regions Europe, Turkey, Russia, and Sweden. EMEA LCQ has been so fun to watch, as each team brings their A-game to qualify for Valorant Champions.
Team Liquid is the fan-favorite from the European region. They qualified for the first International LAN tournament, Masters Two Reykjavik.
However, their performance in Reykjavik did not meet our expectations. Similarly, their performance in the challenger’s playoffs was also disappointing, as they did not qualify for Masters Two Berlin.
Team Liquid in EMEA LCQ
Going into EMEA LCQ, Liquid made all the right decisions, starting with the roster change. Adding Scream’s brother Nabil “Nivera” Benrlitom, making the right agent changes, with getting Scream back on the dualists, and Nirvana playing filling roles to lead the team into victory.
Liquid showed absolute domination in their LCQ matches, as they went 2-0 against One Bonereadth Gaming and Guild Esports in Upper Bracket Quarterfinals and Semifinals. And defeated G2 Esports 2-1 in the Upper finals.

The Grand final between Guild Esports and Team Liquid was an absolute banger. As both teams came fully prepared, but the brothers buff was too much to handle for Guild Esports. Liquid lost the first map with a score of 5-13, but they woke up in the next matches. And just rolled over Gambit in the following maps. They were Ascent, Split, and Breeze.
THAT’S IT! THEY DID IT!!! 🔵⚪
