Defeating their long-term opponents yesterday, FunPlus Phoenix qualified for the Valorant Champions Tour Masters Copenhagen Lower Bracket Finals after a strong lower Bracket run and were looking hot. Shao and Suygetsu had impressive, impactful performances throughout Knockouts.
Optic Gaming was looking good in the tournament. After losing the group stage, they won against all their contemporaries with almost ease. Still, a brutal loss to Paper Rex pushed them into the lower finals.
VCT Masters Copenhagen Lower Finals Map Veto:
Being the top-seeded team, Optic Gaming had the advantage of banning two maps. The map veto started with Optic banning Ascent, FPX’s strongest map, and FPX banned Breeze.
Optic Gaming chose to play Split and Bind, while FPX picked Icebox and Fracture. Haven remains the decider.
Summary of VCT Masters Copenhagen Lower Finals:
- FunPlus Phoenix 3-1 Optic Gaming
Map 1 Split:
Split started with Optic looking great, winning the second round off the pistol win, but FPX turned it around and went on to win nine out of the ten rounds to win the half 9-3.
