Sentinels have combated their way through the lower bracket of the VALORANT VCT NA Oppositions 1: Closed Qualifier to make the grand finals.

There they’ll satisfy Immortals, who made the grand final earlier today by defeating Luminosity in the upper-bracket finals.

Guards were knocked to the lower bracket by Luminosity in the quarterfinals with a 2-0 scoreline. They regrouped, defeating Andbox 2-0 and Gen.G 2-1. Guards then beat XSET 2-0 to score a rematch with Luminosity, who they defeated 2-1 in a back-and-forth rematch series.

Immortals’ path to the grand finals was easier. They sent out XSET to the lower bracket in the quarterfinals, and after that Gen.G in the semifinals. They beat Luminosity 2-1 to knock them into the lower-bracket finals, where they played Sentinels.

No matter the outcome, Guards, Immortals, XSET, and Luminosity have gotten approved for VCT Challengers 2: Closed Qualifier. Ought to the groups position in the top 4 once again at Oppositions 2, they’ll certify for the region-locked VALORANT Masters competition, meant to determine the finest from the major regions. Efficiency at Masters will lead into the Champions occasion, which is indicated to mirror Riot Games’ World Championship occasion in League of Legends.

Sentinels are thought about by many to be in the upper tier of NA VALORANT. They were knocked out in the semifinals of Descent on NA, and won the Pop Flash and JBL Quantum Cup events.

Immortals are on a lesser tier than their opponents in the eyes of fans, but they may not be for long. Their fresh lineup, with new additions Rhett “Kehmicals” Lynch and Nicholas “NaturE” Fort, still have not lost a tournament. Immortals defeated Envy 3-1 in the grand finals of the Open Qualifier portion of Oppositions 1 and haven’t lost a match in the Closed Qualifier.
