Epulze Valorant Prodigies started last weekend on May 23rd-24th and the first four teams that will be playing in the playoffs are already known, you can check here the results from Groups A and B.
In Group A Dreamchasers got a solid first place with a perfect score (3-0); WorstPlayers (2-1) were able to keep a second place only falling in front of Dreamchasers. The surprise of the group was HypHypHyp (1-2), one of the strongest teams in Europe that couldn't qualify for the playoffs ending up third in the group stage. The games against WorstPlayers and Dreamchasers were both close. Against Dreamchasers they went to three maps and the loss was decided in overtime of the last map, Split. Godsent (0-3) didn't have a great performance ending with a negative scoreline.
Group B had one of the favorites of this tournament Fish123 (3-0) playing at their expectations and not only got a perfect score but also not needing to play any third map in all three games. The Polish squad, Fordon Boars (2-1), secured second place and qualified for the playoffs. Absolute Legends and Valorando had close games, but they couldn't close some maps in overtime.
Breach, Brimstone, Cypher and Sage are the core we are all used to, Raze was being used as much as Breach in Groups A and B. Europe slowly moved away from Sova as the fifth agent and favoured Raze. Not surprisingly Fish123, one of the strongest teams in the region, uses Raze constantly.
Fish123 only used two compositions: Breach, Brimstone, Cypher, Raze and Sage on Split (3 times) and Breach, Cypher, Jett, Raze and Sage on Haven (3 times) with a 100% win rate.
DreamChasers used five compositions on 7 maps. Out of the 7 compositions, the only common factor was Sage. On Bind and Split they always used the same compositions: Brimstone, Cypher, Phoenix, Raze and Sage on Bind and Breach, Brimstone, Cypher, Raze and Sage on Split. Haven, the map they struggled with, had 3 different compositions:
WorstPlayers used a lot of Sova in their first two matches, but in the last game of their second match, they swap Sova for Raze and kept her for the last match. WorstPlayers used three compositions:
Fordon Boars used three compositions:
Only losing against Fish123; they had a good performance overall.
The compositions formed with Omen were all picked by HypHypHyp, with an identical core and only changing Breach for Raze on Bind.
Due to the closed beta ending on May 28th with the official launch of the game on June 2nd, the rest of the Groups C & D will be played on June 5th and 6th respectively to determine the 8 teams playing the single-elimination playoffs bracket to determine the winner of the tournament.
