VALORANT Champions will be the biggest VALORANT tournament this year and Acend’s possibility of winning it all is not low. Looking at their recent Red Bull Home Ground #2 - Main Event, and LVP - Rising Series - Finale performances, they are surely a serious contender. Acend will face Envy, X10 Crit, and Vivo Keyd in the group stage Bonecold has been one of the most important pieces for the European side since his arrival to the roster. The Finnish player is the in-game leader of Acend. As an IGL, he combined 190 ACS with 118.4 ADR in 3707 rounds in total. Here is our interview with Acend’s Bonecold:
Yes we do, we’ve been focusing on our fundamentals and overall team coordination and I feel like we’re in a very focused state coming into the tournament.
The main value we get from Milan is that he helps us to prepare for our opponents and does a lot of the heavy lifting in preparation. It helps a lot having someone focusing on things that are outside our normal practice environment.
LVP overall gave us a lot of official game experience that helped us a lot finding our own game style and trying out specific strategies coming into the VCT events. Having experience at LAN also helps, especially with a crowd cheering, it helps a lot to get the last jitters out of our system before Champions
Keys Stars have a lot of potential and have surprised us so far, they could surprise a lot of other people as well in our group. Obviously Envy reached the finals of Masters 3 so I think most people would say they will be the toughest opponent for us in the groups
I think we would struggle the most against Sentinels as they have a similar loose style to us and any day the match-up could go 50/50 depending on the players and who pops off on the server.
Red Bull was the last preparation we needed for Champions, it gave us a lot of valuable official training coming into Berlin. Playing versus Gambit and other top tier teams helped us to filter out some of the smaller issues we were facing and helped us to build on our already strong foundations.
I think we’ll probably take a break after Champions, but I'm just a player and I need to ask my manager and coach if we have to play tournaments coming up!
Thank you for answering our questions. Good luck!
