100 Thieves continued their winning streak as they defeated Fnatic in the second Group D fixture of the VALORANT Champions 2022. The team ended the game with a 2-1 record despite playing with some drawbacks.

Before the start of the game, several members of the 100 Thieves team tested positive after taking the mandatory COVID-19 test. This placed the entire team in an isolation facility in order to play the game, and Fnatic, on their end, continued playing on the main stage.

The first map of the series, Pearl, was picked by Fnatic. The map was put in the rotation after the Last Chance Qualifier, giving 100 Thieves barely a week to put in some practice.

The team ended up beating Fnatic with a 13-10 score through the efforts of Sean “bang” Bezerra. The player made use of Astra and ended the map with a 1.75 KD and a 57 headshot percentage.

Bind was the second map of the series, and although it was picked by 100 Thieves, Fnatic ended the match as victors with a 13-7 record. The team started Bind with an early advantage after taking several rounds at the start.

Fnatic remained in control for most of the match due to the efforts of players like Nikita “Derke” Sirmitev, who held down sites and used the Operator. He put up an excellent l use of his Champion Chamber, but was not the MVP of the match.

James “Mistic” Orfila, who was also particularly impressive on this map, finished as the MVP. With his Champion Skye, he averaged damage of 176 per round and dropped 2.55 KD.

The next map, Haven, was the deciding map of the match, and the two teams treated it as such. The first half of the map ended in a tie after both teams traded blows for blows.

The 100 Thieves players were able to capitalize on Mistic’s struggle to come out on top in gun fights and finished the map with a 13-7 score against Fnatic. Their win could be attributed to the efforts of Peter “Asuna” Mazuryk, who made massive outplays on the map.

As a result of their impressive performance, Fnatic have been regarded as one of the most consistent Valorant teams. They were part of all international tournaments in 2022 and were only absent from one in 2021. Prior to their trip to Copenhagen, Fnatic was on a winning streak and won all the series they participated in while playing in the Valorant Champions Tour EMEA Stage 2 Challengers league.

100 Thieves, on the other hand, will now go head-to-head with South Korean team DRX in a bid to advance past the group stage. Fnatic will take on FURIA in the Group D elimination match as heavy favorites on GG.BET with $1.08 odds. The winner of the match will take on whoever loses between 100T and DRX in a decider match.
