The top team at the LVL VALORANT Clash 2 tournament is G2, who still has failed to not win a tournament that they’ve entered. Their only series loss has been to FunPlus PhoeniX at Allied Esports Odyssey, but G2 avenged it later in the event. They boast an impressive and consistent map winning percentage with their lowest being 78 percent on Split which they’ve played just nine times.
Team Liquid is a flashy lineup that should compete with G2. Belgian CS:GO headshot legend ScreaM with an all U.K. lineup beside him run the team. Although they have recently fallen to FunPlus PhoeniX, who can prove that they belong at the top of the world standings with a win this weekend.
A lot of European teams haven’t played the sheer number of matches that North America has played. This leads to a smaller sample size and more confusion over who might be the best. Naturally, this is a massive “prove-it” weekend for a lot of teams.
