The final decider match of the group stage at the 2022 VALORANT Champions tournament concluded today, putting an end to a wild first stage. North America’s 100 Thieves and EMEA’s Fnatic went head to head in a rematch for the final spot in the playoffs.
The team that succeeded in this match would be the third team from their region to make it past the group stage, meaning either every team from NA or every team from EMEA would qualify for the playoffs.
Despite Fnatic’s shaky form just a few days ago against FURIA, the team came together today to deliver a 2-0 win over 100T.
Fnatic opted to start off the match on Bind, where they quickly ran away with the map uncontested. 100T struggled in nearly every round, with Will struggling to find value on Raze and Derrek unable to clutch out his signature one-vs-ones. 100T were down 10-2 at the half, an abysmal scoreline going into their attack.
