In this blog post, we'll provide an overview of the tournament, a look at the participating teams and their chances of success, and a brief overview of the tournament format. Read on for more!

Overview of Participating Teams

The Valorant NA Open Qualifier will bring together some of North America’s top esports teams vying for a spot in the main event. This includes Soniqs, DarkRatio, The Nation, Oxygen Esports, and Misfits Black. Each team has their own strengths and weaknesses that could give them an edge in the competition.
Soniqs is led by phenom player Ashton “dizzay” Buffen who is known for his aggressive playstyle and impressive aim. DarkRatio boasts a team made up of highly experienced veteran players with years of experience in games like CS:GO and Overwatch. The Nation brings together five former Call of Duty pros looking to make their mark in the Valorant scene. Oxygen Esports features former Counter Strike pros who are no strangers to competitive tournaments. And lastly there's Misfits Black—a relatively new team comprised of talented amateurs—who have been steadily climbing up the ranks since they formed earlier this year.

Tournament Format

The Valorant NA Open qualifier will take place over three days (April 17 - 19) with each day featuring 4 hours worth of intense matches across multiple streaming platforms including YouTube Gaming and Twitch TV. The tournament will feature 16 participating teams split into four groups where they’ll battle it out for a chance at qualifying for the main event. The top two teams from each group will move on to the playoffs where only one team will emerge as victors and secure their spot in the main event.

Top Team Competitors

As mentioned above, there are 16 participating teams vying for a chance at qualifying for the main event but there are five that stand out from the rest due to their impressive track records or noteworthy rosters: Soniqs, DarkRatio, The Nation, Oxygen Esports, and Misfits Black. All five have strong rosters capable of going toe-to-toe with anyone else in attendance so it should be interesting to see which one comes out on top when all is said and done!

Anticipated Results & Predictions

It's hard to say which team has what it takes to come out on top but based on past performances we can make some educated guesses about who might have an edge over the competition. Soniqs stands out as one of the favorites due to its impressive roster featuring dizzay as well as former CS:GO pros Jonathan “Jonny” Schmitt and Ryan “nitr0” Latham who are both strong fraggers with great game sense. DarkRatio also has a good chance thanks to its experienced roster while The Nation could surprise everyone if they can use their previous experience in Call Of Duty titles to their advantage in Valorant matches. Oxygen Esports are another dark horse contender due to their former Counter Strike experience while fan favorite Misfits Black could easily upset any team if they manage to get into playoff contention despite being relative newcomers compared to other participating teams!
