Valorant Champions Playoffs schedule is almost halfway locked as 4 teams have finalised their seats. Are there any foolproof predictions?

16 teams and only 8 seats. That is the nature of every ESports tournament for the Group stages. Valorant Champions 2021 gets more exciting as the knockout stages close in.

Big teams are one step away from a major disaster. But, it is accepted that the meta changes affect gameplay significantly.

And, the pick rate shifts are a mighty suggestion to that. Sometimes, an unorthodox modus operandi gives you the best chance.

The Champions 2021 is an ode to that fact. We make our choices not on obvious terms, rather giving more scope to underdogs.

2021 has truly been the year of the Darkhorse. It is the year of the Underdogs. Team Spirit, who lifted the Aegis of the Champions, is plenty of evidence.

The Obvious but foolproof choices.

As the tournament progresses, the top 1 region reveals itself. And, it is not North America.

4 out of 4 teams from the EMEA region made it through to the Playoffs. It will be utter domination for a while from EMEA.

Gambit, The EMEA Kings.

Gambit is the team to beat. It is undoubtedly the best team in the world right now just based on stats.

The EMEA giant looks to take it all in the Valorant Champions 2021. There is not another better chance to win the Champions again.

Nats and Company want to make every bullet count.

Team Liquid, Brother Buff.

Scream found a new abode in Valorant after leaving behind his dreams in CS:GO. His aggressive style made ripples in Valorant Community.

The one-tap god, along with his brother Nivera, are on to achieving all there is. Team Liquid has beaten teams at their worst.

Now, at their best, only Gambit may be able to stop them at all.

Sergio Aguero made a good investment. As an owner, there is no one more elated than him at the moment.

The LatAm team has a lot to prove. They have set their eyes on Team Liquid next. We are expecting some decisive and bloody battles to be fought by the only team from LatAm.

Team Acend, EMEA underdog.

Acend moves on to the VALORANT Champions playoffs after defeating Envy in a quick 2-0 match. Hence, Team Acend completes the total domination by EMEA as the 1st seed from each group.

Also, Acend surprised everyone from the get-go. Even though there are no superstars on the roster, they make their presence known.

They have the highest round difference amongst all seed #1 teams from each group. Hence, some commendable achievements.
