Schedule for VCT Americas LCQ Day 1

Today we only will have one game between the 6th and 7th seeded teams, on a single elimination game. The loser is out, and the dream ends.

  1. MIBR vs KRÜ – 22:00 CEST
REYKJAVIK, ICELAND – MAY 22: KRU’s Nicolas “Klaus” Ferrari poses at the VALORANT Champions Tour 2022

Prediction

  1. KRÜ will win against MIBR.
    • KRÜ is on the toughest losing streak I’ve ever seen on competitive VALORANT, with a current streak of 11 games lost in a row. They ended the regular league without winning a single game, even tho they always had very close games, and the improvement was there, but they couldn’t close a single game. I saw an evolution in KRÜ’s gameplay over time, and I will take the risk of saying that they had enough time to work on their mistakes. MIBR was in a similar spot, losing 6 games and winning 3, they ended with a -72 round differential, way more than KRÜ, who ended at -53. Individually, MIBR was inconsistent in almost all of the regular season, and KRÜ was consistently losing. I may use a little too much COPIUM, but I trust KRÜ in this one.
