Valor Series Week 4 Recap

North America and Europe’s Valor Series, the $100,000 (combined) tournament and each region’s qualifier to the $550,000 World Cup, is over halfway through the regular season. Let’s take a look at what took place in a crucial week 4, as teams either solidified their foothold on the top, or made last-minute pushes to the playoffs. For previous weeks’ recaps, here is the week 3 recap and the recap for weeks 1 and 2.

Here’s how things stood after 3 weeks of play:

*My notes had Arctic Gaming with 80 points (thanks to their quarterfinal finish in the week 2 open qualifiers) while Nyjacky had them with 75 points.

As a reminder, the top four teams from each region advance to the playoffs, while the top eight teams receive prize money for their trouble.

Week 4 Open Qualifiers

Every week, two teams are relegated from the top eight, and a qualifying tournament is held to see which teams will take their places.

North America

Seven teams signed up for the North American qualifiers, with AssassinsSquadRT winning the tournament and securing the seventh seed. Team Feroxx returned to the main draw in the 8th seed after having previously been relegated. Strangely enough, neither Glory Awaits Us nor NonToxic eSports signed up for the qualifiers.

Europe

13 teams checked into Europe’s qualifying tournament, with x6tence AoV managing to re-qualify after getting bounced the previous week. JungleBookSquad and MYTH joined forces, forming MYTH in the Jungle and cruising to the qualifier win without dropping a game.

Week 4 Results

North America

Allegiance and Immortals extended their perfect first round record, bringing them to combined 16-0 in game score. One Trick took out Team Upsla, while Dino Riders failed to get out of the first round for the first time in the Valor Series, falling to DarkPower. (VOD, bracket, and Nyjacky Reddit recap):

Team 1 Score Team 2
Allegiance 2 0 Team Feroxx

On day 2, DarkPower finally ended Immortals’ string of 5 finals runs (including qualifiers), defeating them 2-0. With 9 straight series wins and 18 straight game wins, however, Allegiance is proving to be the dominant force of North America (VOD and Nyjacky recap):

Europe

Team Noob pushed aside re-qualifiers x6tence while Team Vitality made good use of its shiny new #2 seed, taking out merged team MYTH in the Jungle. Team Obyss (formally For The Dream) defeated Team Queso, with the battle of the #4 and #5 point earners going to Team RoyaL over Nova (VOD, bracket, and Nyjacky recap):
