NRG VALORANT keeps on taking home the Dubs, winning their 3rd-straight match Monday against FURIA by a 2-1 final! A closely contested series throughout, NRG fired the opening shot in the series by winning their map pick, Bind, after a furious second half comeback. After an insanely tight map loss on Haven, the team immediately responded in turn with a convincing 13-6 win on the decider map Pearl. Our favorite W streamer s0m led the way in the series with 57 frags, with Crashies racking up 40 total assists across all three maps! Next up is a revenge rematch against our favorite Brazilian foes, and the top ranked team in the Americas, LOUD on May 14th at 3 PM PST!
NRG Apex is going BACK to London for the ALGS Split 2 Playoffs after a 3rd Place finish in the Regional Finals! Entering into Sunday firmly on the cutline for the Playoffs, the trio of Sweet, Nafen and Gild put in some serious work throughout the course of the 8 matches in the Finals. Ultimately, a dominant 13-kill performance in Game 6 made all the difference, placing NRG on Match Point and securing enough points needed to qualify for LAN. The boys head back across the pond in July, with more details soon to be released. Watch out TSM, we're coming for the top spot this time!
Unfortunately for GarrettG, JSTN and Squishy the squad was unable to ride the momentum of our opening victory against Dignitas as they fought hard but fell to the lower bracket in a back-and-forth series against the eventual runner ups, GenG, where they ultimately were eliminated from the first of three Spring Regionals. Fear not though as we still believe in this squad and they’re back in action this Sunday live on NRG Mission Control on both the NRG Twitch and NRG Rocket League YouTube channel! Be sure to tune in to support the squad!
