After making their way to the finals of VALORANT Champions Tour Stage 3: Masters Berlin, Team Envy secured their spot to represent North America at VALORANT Champions. And a key part of their success is the man they call “El Diablo:” Jaccob “yay” Whiteaker. Yay finished VCT Masters Berlin as the best statistical player from the tournament with a kill to death ratio of 1.44, preforming even better than his NA counterpart TenZ from Sentinels.
Yay joined Upcomer’s Yinsu Collins and Tyler “Fionn” Erzberger for this week’s episode of Showstopper to share his thoughts on which team will make it out of the NA Champions LCQ. He also explained why he wants to face Cloud9 and Fnatic at Champions and what his first VALORANT LAN experience was like.
And, for all the Squid Game fans out there, yay broke down exactly how he would win a VALORANT Squid Game against other Jett mains. You won’t want to miss this one!
