The group stages of Masters Berlin are complete with just six of the original fifteen teams remaining at the time of this post, the pretenders have started to be left to the wayside, while the contenders start to rise to the top and state their claim as the best team in the professional Valorant scene. One of those teams remaining is Acend, the third seed from EMEA, who has battled through a tough group A that included the Korean roster of Vision Strikers and fellow EMEA hope SuperMassive Blaze who beat Acend in the regional qualifiers to take the number two seed.  Now with the playoffs in full swing, Acend is here to show that they are not only better than the North American teams they have been paired with but to show they are the best team in the world.

An Interview With NYXL DPS Young-Woo “Flora” Lim

 


By Arran “Halo” Spake

Coming into the 2021 Overwatch League season, there was a lot of unknowns regarding the New York Excelsior. The team’s original and much loved roster had been disbanded after a strong first year that failed to see them win the inaugural season, despite winning stages two and three in 2018, they never reached their full potential as the best team in the world. This led the New York Excelsior to bring in a number of talented rookies from both Chinese and Korean Contenders to transform themselves in to a future powerhouse. One of these players was former Team Diamond DPS Flora, who had shown that he had the ability to play in the Overwatch League but not had the same hype that other Korean DPS players coming into the 2021 season.
