Teams To Watch
Acend and SuperMassive Blaze are definitely two teams to watch in Masters 3 Berlin. Their meteoric rise through the qualifiers and the Playoffs shows how much the competition has evolved in the region.
Similarly, G2 will look to assert their dominance early in the tournament as they have one of the most favorable rosters for Masters 3 Berlin. Fans are expecting a lot from Oscar “mixwell” Cañellas Colocho who will have a chance show his skills in VALORANT's second international LAN.
