Gambit Esports EMEA VCT. Gambit began to regain their control after a lengthy technical break at the start. As they had done in Valorant VCT Stage Three and Champions. They stormed out to a massive lead with a superb attacking side led by Chronicle and d3ffo on their pick of Icebox. Team Liquid fought back on their attacking half, even though they didn’t have a duelist to play around. Gambit won map one 13-9, putting an end to a Liquid comeback.
With an ace in the second round, Gambit continued to deliver on Breeze, reversing Liquid’s pistol momentum. After defending on their first map selection, Team Liquid only managed to take a 7-5 lead. The score was shortly knotted at 8-8 when Gambit made a quick comeback. Their Chamber had an impact on Team Liquid’s attacks on both bomb sites. Which was a key factor in Gambit’s 13-8 victory over Breeze.
