Valorant Masters Copenhagen Matches
The outcome of the matches yesterday has been the following:
DRX vs Northeption
The first match of July 11 pitted the teams DRX and Northeption against one another. DRX has had a successful streak so far, as in the first match in all three international appearances they’ve been in, they’ve defeated their competition. Their opponents this time were Northeption, who still have a lot to prove.
Ascent was the first map, chosen by Northeption. The start of the match was strong for Northeption. Xnfri of Northeption started an amazing streak, winning 4 rounds in a row. However, this streak was ultimately broken by DRX, as at the end of the half, they regained their footing. In round 7, BuZz pulled an insane clutch. This would mark the beginning of a 6 round streak, where DRX destroyed Northeption over and over again. At the end of the first half, the score was 8-4. The second half went much the same, Northeption put on defense after they lost the pistol, which was utterly destroyed by Zest in the second round. Northeption again started a 4 round streak, which was ultimately broken by DRX who would go on to win every round after that. Ultimately bringing the match to a close, with the results being 13-8.
The second map, Bind, was chosen by DRX. Unfortunately for Northeption, they were destroyed here. Northeption only won in round 3, while every other round was a victory for DRX. DRX has moved onto the winner’s match, while Northeption has been placed in the losers match.
KRÜ Esports vs. LOUD
The second match on July 11 featured KRÜ Esports and LOUD. LOUD were the runner-ups at the VCT Stage 1 in Reykjavik. They also had an impressive record of 16-0 in the Brazilian Stage 2 Challengers. The history of LOUD might’ve been impressive, although the same couldn’t have been said for KRÜ Esports, who came last place in Reykjavik. Despite this, they still had an impressive win record of 4-0 in VCT matches against their Brazilian competition. It seemed as though KRÜ Esports was underestimated, and it certainly proved to be that way.
The first map was picked by LOUD, which was Fracture. LOUD must’ve felt confident as they’d struggled in this map earlier, while KRÜ Esports had no such issues. On the pistol, KRÜ decided to handle LOUD head-on. Everything was balanced for a couple more rounds and each team fought as hard as they could. LOUD gained the advantage in round 5, as KRÜ was outnumbered. After a clutch by saadhak, LOUD began to be more cautious. At the end of the first half, LOUD took the lead as the results were 8-4. In the second half, KRÜ definitely started to gain back momentum. keznit, who in the first half only had 5 kills, started playing brilliantly. KRÜ were able to tie the score to a 10-10 near the end, but saadhak ruined their chances. In the end, LOUD won, the results being 13-10.
Haven, chosen by KRÜ, was the second map. The match was opened by a win in the pistol for KRÜ although once again the teams were on equal footing early on, as both tried to gain the advantage. KRÜ gained control of the central B site and gained a 7-3 lead, while LOUD, later on, pulled a clutch and picked up momentum, at the end of the first half KRÜ was still in the lead, results being 7-5. The second half started the same way as matches from LOUD’s past, and although they were going to gain the lead, KRÜ’s Klaus destroyed their chance. Klaus would also pull off a clutch two rounds in a row. LOUD started to regain their footing, When KRÜ was in the 12-6 lead, LOUD started fighting harder than ever. Ultimately the second half ended in a win for KRÜ, a 13-9 win.
Icebox was the final map, decided on by both teams. Early on LOUD took the lead easily, while KRÜ struggled. Klaus pulled off a 1v3 clutch, which slowed LOUD down. Another clutch helped KRÜ as well, who then proceeded to win 5 more rounds, but LOUD wasn’t letting go of their lead easily. Near the end, KRÜ made an epic comeback, first tying the score to 10-10, and in the end, they won a 13-10 win.
Guild Esports vs. OpTic Gaming
The final match was Guild Esports against OpTic Gaming. Guild Esports, while only being formed 3 years ago, has made a name for itself. On the hander hand, OpTic Gaming has been in the esports scene for 16 years. The match between the two has once again lit up the flames of the NA vs. EMEA rivalry.

This gave Guild a strong start, and they were leading with 7-0. In the eighth round, OpTic finally started making their comeback.

However, OpTic managed to save themselves, and at the end of the final round, it was decided overtime was going to be held. At the end of overtime, Leo won a 1v2, which finally helped declared Guild as the winner.
FunPlus Phoenix vs. XERXIA Esports
