The VALORANT Champions Tour Stage 2: Masters Reykjavík runners-up Fnatic missed out on Stage 3: Masters Berlin. But, thanks to Gambit Esports’ victory at that event, they will be making a highly-anticipated return at VALORANT Champions in Dec.
This week on Upcomer’s Showstopper, Fnatic’s Nikita “Derke” Sirmitev joined hosts Yinsu Collins and Tyler “Fionn” Erzberger to discuss what he’s been up to over the past few months and how tough it was to miss out on Masters 2.
Derke also touched on the players he’s most looking forward to facing at Champions and revealed some inside details on their scrim results against NA’s Sentinels. Moreover, the 18-year-old spoke candidly about how to maintain a good attitude and stay grounded in such a hectic, competitive environment.
Last but not least, for this week’s Roast My Tier List, Yinsu and Tyler put Derke to the test and ranked every single team heading into VALORANT Champions. You don’t want to miss this one!
