The tents They had a spectacular debut, initially the team led by the Spanish koldamenta was left with the selection of NAVI (ascent) by 13-7; however, far from remaining with arms crossed, NAVI came out in Lotus with the sole objective of equalizing the series and giving a taste of their own medicine to KOI.
But despite having dominated overwhelmingly during the first half (9-3 in favor of NAVI), the set led by ANGE1 ran into a great defensive end of koi who forced six overtimes to turn around a game that seemed lost. Finally the tents they took not only their own pick 20-18, but also put a finishing touch to a great debut to keep the first victory in the VCT EMEA.
The hard setback that Giants received

The new champion of LOCK//IN and the team called to take glory in this 2023 did not forgive any carelessness and took the series against the Málaga team 2-0. Ice box and Split were the scenarios chosen in the preview, in the first one (fnatic pick), the team led by the British booster revealed the reason for the selection crushing giants by 13-3.
The story in Split (Giants pick) was different since the giants were the ones who started off on the right foot, but thanks to the game of fnatic and a derke (race) on fire, the champions of LOCK//IN they not only tied the game, but also took the map 13-11 and with it the series to start the long road of this new season in the best possible way.
