The LVL Clash 2 Valorant Ignition Series concludes the final event in the European tournament series.
16 of the EU region’s best teams battled it out for the €15,000 prize pool, bragging rights, and regional glory— with G2 Esports winning the tournament.
The European Valorant scene has been dominated by G2 esports, a powerful force that leaves other teams challenged.
As a matter of fact, the team has been hardly challenged, only losing one best of three in all the previous Ignition Series events.
Many members in the community wondered if the balance of power would shift the same time as the Ignition chapter ended. However, it doesn’t seem like it.
For the most part, G2 overtook all opponents in LVL Clash 2.
This follows the successful first clash in the beta stage, but this particular event had more to offer for successful winners.
“LVL VALORANT CLASH 2 CHAMPIONS:
THE G2 ERA IS CEMENTED
THE #IGNITIONSERIES BELONGS TO G2”
The event had double the prize pool money (€15,000) than the previous series, and is considerably the most important event in the European Valorant scene so far.
FPX proved to be a tough opponent and Bonk made an incredible run, but it was G2 that ultimately cemented themselves as the current best Valorant team in Europe.
And they didn’t seem to doubt themselves all throughout the event:
“And people still doubted us to win this event? Lmao”
16 of the best Valorant eSports teams in Europe participated in LVL Clash 2, divided into four groups.
13 of the teams, including G2 Esports, Liquid, BIG, FPX, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Giants Gaming, and BBL Esports were invited.
A German squad, Valorando, were also invited after winning the beta tournament.
Wave Esports and Angry Titans qualified for the Contenders Cup last August 23. But G2 managed to separate themselves from the rest, not losing a map and deciding to beat TSM on LAN next.
Final standings and placements
For the group stage, the matches were played in a best-of-one format. The top two teams from each group will then advance to the Playoffs, and the first teams to secure two wins through to the Quarterfinals of the Playoffs.
Each match result matters in the emerging Valorant eSports scene, with every participating team showing what they’ve got.
Twitch chat favorite Bonk upset Ninjas in Pyjamas, taking away a slot in the finals. Meanwhile, G2 Esports are all business as they easily dominated the tournament.
While G2 won the best of three finals over Bonk 2-0, each team still walked away with a sweet cash prize.
- 1st: G2 Esports €7,500
- 2nd: Bonk €3,500
- 3rd-4th: FPX & NiP- €1,500
G2 Esports won both Split (13-8) and Ascent (13-4). Bonk, considered as the event’s underdogs, showed that they are a force that can keep up and contend with the top teams.
