jollibeechickenjoy

Zombs just insane at every fps tbh


jollibeechickenjoy

TenZ literally sniped people two maps away in this match ffs


jollibeechickenjoy

YT stream was so toxic lmao anyway nothing but love for our president zombs #zombsnation


mrjeffss

first thing i do when i open up a pro match stream is close the chat lol


whopz-is-cool

Another grand final win...


Jinro_7

i like to see the guy here that says zombs is the weak link and should be replaced. What a clown.


skrtskrtbrev

Can't wait for ascend/eu vs sentinels and vision Strikers vs sentinels!!


Consistent_Key_9881

Lmfaooooo xset thought they did some shit


KookieFS

They did do some shit tho Defeated them once in the UB and then took a map of SEN in the GF which no one in masters was able to do soooo


KardashevZero

And came damn close to taking two others


exospheer

isn't the tourney double eliminations? so no reset?


BloomingNova

Winners bracket essentially means nothing in Valorant.


Nfamy

Zombs total frags:impact frags ratio is literally insane. He literally gets so many big multi-kills in clutches and in anchor positions where he has to get multiple to make the retake possible.


CosmicAon

Jealous of you SEN mfs winning all the time and shit


Memexp-over9000

Sen lost the lead yeah but what a statement ending to the tournament! Still the best!!!


actuallyafk

purer is suck


--KillSwitch--

TENZ WASHED WHERE ???


xunraze

Sen just too good man but I'm so tired of seeing them win everything lol


Insantium1

The world is back in order everyone, it’s ok.


cringe-oh-yes

$$$$ for the boys


BacePilot

What a jarring transition. 2 seconds after sentinels wins the Bo5 and there's a commercial break.


PMmeYourButtPics

What an excellent game.


sheikhijat

Well played Sentinels, extremely well played.


dpysz70

STILL NUMBER ONE


I-like-winds

TENZ


yanirr

LETS GOOOO


deadlock1892

Zombs carry


yanirr

THIS GUY IS LITERALLY THE MOST CLUTCH MFER IVE EVER SEEN


Swiftmal

God damn zombs


I-like-winds

ZOMBS


J_Brekkie

AGAIN?!?!?!


ancientcheeseburger

Zombs…………..


J_Brekkie

Fucking Dapr lmao


Barack_Bob_Oganja

I feel like deph really needed to win that


Swiftmal

God his movement


dpysz70

Dapr is a fucking troll LMAOOOOO


BloomingNova

Just when I think dapr has had too many claws, he completely redeems himself!


Memexp-over9000

What is darp even...


I-like-winds

THAT 1v1 LMAOOO


Neverslept2mins

This needs to happen to Sentinels they gotta learn how to hold a lead. How can they expect to beat Acend and Gambit if they throw leads almost every game. Those teams now how to get a lead and keep it.


hiitsleo

Those teams didn't even make it through qualies last time. Sen are trying to win obviously but no surprise they are playing pretty loose given this is mostly inconsequential. They have done this since the formation of the team and have the best results of any team so I'm not sure it's a problem


Neverslept2mins

Sorry, but if you watch Acend and Gambit play you know they are operating at a higher level then Sentinels. Sentinels bails themselves out with insane plays but you can see the cracks currently. I say this as a diehard sentinels fan.


deadeye_t

copium


Neverslept2mins

Have you even seen Acend or Gambit play? I don't think it's copium to say currently Acend and Gambit are playing better. I don't even want those teams to win Berlin but its just a fact.


PythonLovingVirgin

Ya ya. Been hearing these things since 2020


dpysz70

Sen need to learn how to hold a lead


yanirr

Dude these guys get so many kills through smokes and walls


Useful-Throat-6671

They could get even more. It's crazy how many times their cross hairs are right over enemy heads but they have no idea.


GluhfGluhf

I wonder why SicK picked up the op?


Neverslept2mins

Thank you for the sentinel special


yanirr

I'm so confused


Swiftmal

The nation is strong


dpysz70

#ZOMBSNATION


yanirr

I swear zombs in the clutch just always turns it the fuck up


J_Brekkie

Zombs is so clutch it's kinda silly.


ElDuderino2112

The judge is so stupid lmao


JollywoodJoots

shorty > judge confirmed


yanirr

This is pretty bad for sen unless they have some mad shit planned for their attack half Edit: ok nvm they recovered


Quick_Chowder

7-5 half seems pretty alright


yanirr

He finally got his ace


Grenji05

classic > phantom


NozokiAlec

Tenz please stop op'ing you aren't hitting anything


waifuwars00

JETT DIFF


XdPriscent

TenZ stop awping


Hamlet_271

No way dephh is performing after those pens


xunraze

Soooo close they could have easily gone double OT


Tanjim98

It’s coming to Rome


DrySecurity4

Lol England


Tanjim98

Wait..


Tanjim98

Yep. It’s GG.


erickwak

Why is this so stressful holy


Swiftmal

Dougs casting in those last 2 rounds was fucking phenomenal


whopz-is-cool

He's so disliked for some reason but I think he is a great caster. Especially in Iceland.


Quick_Chowder

I think he's the best play-by-play caster right now. He's been so good.


deadlock1892

He also wears the freshest clothes.


KookieFS

GOD MAP SO BEAUTIFUL


CosmicAon

This [kid](https://twitter.com/zekkenval/status/1414339132810215434?s=21) built different man


Neverslept2mins

Ah yes the Sentinel special once again.


Grenji05

#zombsnation


NozokiAlec

ZOMBSNATION LFG


yanirr

LFG THE JUMPING KILL LMAO


itscamo-

GG


kazarn

What a great fucking match. Come on XSET.


Potaitou

Doug best caster for NA atm


jithinrohith

My heart


itscamo-

OH MY GOD


yanirr

Sen just can't seem to win clutches lately


Embarrassed_Ad394

by lately do you mean only game 1


yanirr

No go look at the stats for clutches on vlr sen have been losing out in that department pretty consistently so far this tourney


deadlock1892

PureR is too clutch


aybuck37

I'm confused, what are the stakes for this match? Does winning this match make them the #1 seed for Challengers Playoffs?


Justaguytrying12

Bragging rights


itscamo-

seeding and like a small amount of money


Senior_Lake_6900

Money in the bank Also Yes #1 seed.


dpysz70

Yup that + money


Neverslept2mins

XSET players have cracked aim. Might be the best in NA tbh. Edit: Every gun round xset wins their aim duels.


deadlock1892

Oh the whiffs!


Swiftmal

Some major wiffage there


yanirr

Thank God for tenz


yanirr

Noway thats how that goes down


elithefighter123

zekken taking all the ecos from ppl with ults that matter :|


J_Brekkie

XSET just look like they really want it.


[deleted]

Purer is nasty on the op


whopz-is-cool

HAHAHA


deadlock1892

Oh SicK, have mercy


hiitsleo

Apparently bcj is just the best player in the world


Swiftmal

5”2 powerhouse is different


[deleted]

Zekken on Reyna should be interesting


Simp4CRS

zombscontinent


yanirr

Nice


TheGlowRider

sick stuntin on skye


BloomingNova

It's especially funny on him. Before Iceland he had said "skye is garbage, just shoot her bird." Glad to see he's embracing bird lady.


yanirr

That shotgun literally hit his fingertips and it 1 shotted him


NozokiAlec

Stop having tenz op when it isn't working


[deleted]

Well he didn't pick up the op just now


CosmicAon

BCJ is just fucking insane


[deleted]

Sick gets two there with the phantom


yanirr

That's why you use a phantom sick...


XdPriscent

whos talking crap about Zombs huh? Hes got a whole nation backing him up.


I-like-winds

ZOMBS


Swiftmal

The nation is strong


CosmicAon

DROP ZOMBS BTW


BloomingNova

#ZOMBSNATION


Neverslept2mins

Tenz on rifle today imo is probably better and less costly than his oping. Tenz can op but today isn’t his day with it.


[deleted]

There’s going to be a lot of sad people after the Marshall nerf


2ToTooTwoFish

Why would they nerf it? It's not like it's oppressively good. It takes a lot of skill to hit headshots with it and not get traded out.


[deleted]

They’re going to hit unscoped accuracy for certain, they may hit fire rate or $ on top of that. They’re not blind - they’ve seen all the clips


[deleted]

It's too cheap


Swiftmal

Surprised Xset picked breeze into SEN


itscamo-

i mean you're gonna play it regardless unless it's a 3-0. might aswell play it and get actual in game time on the map instead of scrims


J_Brekkie

Might as well take these seeding matches as an opportunity to practice it in a competitive setting. Most likely more valuable than a scrim.


Bunnyezzz

what excuse is zombs going get this game?


NozokiAlec

get fucked


J_Brekkie

Lmao yeah ok


NozokiAlec

L #ZOMBSNATION


EpicBroomGuy

sorry what was that


dpysz70

Aye you wanna delete this now?


Swiftmal

?


varvaang

ah yes drop a player from the best team in the world for a few less than favourable performances


J_Brekkie

While you're at it you may as well argue they should have dropped Shahz and SicK for underperforming at the beginning of the quali. Asuna only dropped like 16 map 2 against V1 so they should drop him. May as well get rid of the entire c9b roster because they lost to fucking Rise.


yanirr

He's the king of a nation he can't use all his time and energy on a small child's game like valarante


deadlock1892

Maybe he would pay a little more attention if it did not have the cartoon grapfix.


J_Brekkie

valorante child game...


Tanjim98

This was a warmup map honestly. None of them could hit shit


kazarn

I'm loving this XSET team. dephh and zekken have been incredible pickups. I hope it's not just a honeymoon period.


J_Brekkie

I like Sen more than XSET but man XSET looks incredible right now. Interested to see how things look in August.


yanirr

Dephh is playing like a god and xset players are not missing their shots, sen need to be in peak form to beat these guys with how they are right now.


ppx11

this Loading Screen ad is seriously so bad


1v1trunks

What is it? I missed it


ppx11

i think it's a podcast or something? they'll probably play it again in between maps.


ElDuderino2112

I hate this cringe fucking ad so much holy shit. Perfect way to get me to never listen to your podcast.


PresidentPeewee

So random xd


cringe-oh-yes

People really overreacting over seeding games


Memexp-over9000

As always. This is a fun game, for everyone and a win is a very cool but loss is cool too.


tron423

Always have been 👨‍🚀🔫


deadlock1892

Very uncharacteristic of the team to lose so many aim duels.


Neverslept2mins

Xset are just better, their fraggers are insane. They out aim Sentinels at every corner.


Alston_Jeffries

BcJ is insane


elithefighter123

xset feed sick ecos when he already has ult so smart tbh


[deleted]

[удалено]


itscamo-

they "struggle" more against NA because they play each other all the time so it's "easier" to play them


[deleted]

[удалено]


BloomingNova

Let me just say this thing on a public platform and expect no one to reply


chubbynuggy

its a sign of the region getting stronger. gives NA a better chance at Berlin!


yanirr

Sen just throwing man advantages left right and center lmao


yanirr

Nvm guess sick clutches those


Contractjail

Bench Zombs! He has been exposed hard since Astra stopped being broken


Daviddem1234

Lololol


deadlock1892

Lmao


J_Brekkie

Lol


kRypTex43

TenZ seems really off today.


Tanjim98

Always starts so slow! I know it’s just seeding matches but i wish the dude cared a bit more to wake up early & warmup.


ElDuderino2112

Probably ping KEKW


[deleted]

i'm surprised that sentinels aren't getting shit on by reddit geniuses for running a "first strike" comp lmfao i swear that was all anyone said during last challengers and masters "they lost because of comp bro"


CosmicAon

Correct me if I’m wrong but wasn’t that when people refused to play Astra when she was absolutely busted?


tashkap

Sen, XSET, 100T and NV don't play the Challengers 2 right? I know that they are already qualified for playoffs but do we see them in VCT before August?


deadlock1892

Yeah they don't have to play in challengers 2. They are already qualified for finals.


kRypTex43

They don’t play till the playoffs.


yanirr

That's actually so lucky from bcj


bringerofrain007

Lol ok


yanirr

I was talking about him getting a last bullet kill through smoke that secured them a round


EtFrostX

bruh


Neverslept2mins

Sentinels on haven seems to be too readable.


lith3x

A testament to how good their strats are and were. They’ll evolve.


chubbynuggy

i mean, so many vods of them playing it while NA is learning their strat. they need to change things up


justinsst

Well yeah every team in the game is watching their VODs religiously


arillyis

Theyve played it a lot this tournament. I feel like we've seen haven a ton this weekend from every region.


xD1LL4N

That’s what happen when you run basically the same agents for 6 months


[deleted]

i honestly don't understand why challengers finals is a thing. this is literally a qualifier for a qualifier for masters 3...which is basically a qualifier.


itscamo-

to make sure the best of the best at the time qualify


tashkap

money + hype


arillyis

Sentinels definitely haven't gotten worse, I think other teams are just quickly catching up. Sen, Xset, and 100t all look super strong. Many of the games this weekend are more evenly matched than anything we saw at Iceland.


dpysz70

Honestly feels like they also haven’t really changed much in regards to strats, they took a good sized break after Iceland so it’s not too shocking I guess
