After his elimination match against ZETA DIVISION, Jonathan “JhoW” Glória from Vivo Keyd gave his thoughts on the Brazilian region as a whole. The victorious side is made up of players from five different teams and was formed at the start of VALORANT Champions Tour Stage 3. At Masters Berlin, JhoW said the team has no grudges or rivalries with their previous squads but that because of VCT circuit point implications, he would not cheer on fellow Brazilian squad Havan Liberty.
JhoW also touched on who else Brazil could send to international events, since Brazil has yet to establish a top squad like North America and South Korea.
“I have to say Gamelanders,” JhoW said. “I’m biased but it’s Gamelanders.”
The winners of First Strike: Brazil, Gamelanders have not qualified for an international event so far. But many say they have one of the best players in all of VALORANT in Leonardo “mwzera” Serrati. According to JhoW, who played for Gamelanders until VCT Stage 3, meta changes have kept the team from appearing at Iceland and Germany.
As for his upcoming Masters Berlin match against KRÜ Esports, JhoW said the series should be entertaining as the two teams have practiced many times. He said fans should expect mid-round reads and a lot of action in the series to decide Group B’s second playoff seed.
