The two teams will join ten of North America’s top Valorant teams in the NA Last Chance Qualifier for the final NA seat at Valorant Champions Berlin.
ORDER and PEACE head to the NA LCQ
While most of the global Valorant community had Masters Berlin encircled and bookmarked on their calendars, the folks from the Oceania region had the Valorant Oceania Tour 2021: Championship in their minds. The final stage saw ORDER and PEACE as the region’s representatives for the NA Last Chance Qualifiers.
The NA LCQ will see these two Oceania tour participants fight for the NA LCQ seed for Valorant Champions later this December in Berlin. The ten teams from NA’s pro circuit have yet to be finalized, pending the results of the ongoing Masters Berlin tournament.
According to their Twitter page, ORDER is an “Australian based digital content & entertainment company, competing in esports & unapologetically disrupting gaming clichés.” The organization is one of Australia’s premier esports organizations and has been the dominant force in Oceania’s Valorant scene.
ORDER won the Stage 1 and 3 Oceania Tour Finals, placed second for Stage 2 and First Strike Oceania, and are the Oceania Tour Champions. Save for a single roster change before Stage 3, and the ORDER roster has stayed virtually the same all year long.
Elvin “Maple” Sun, the team’s latest addition, is the team’s Sova main. As of writing, Maple has had an ACS of 210 in the last 60 days. Dominant and balanced, everyone in the ORDER roster has an ACS over 200, which is unheard of.
Then there’s Kale “autumn” Dunne, the team’s Jett main. Autumn has a rating of 1.29 and a KD of 1.36 for his career. ORDER typically runs either the double controller or double initiator comp, with autumn’s Jett as the only duelist. This has lead to an 88% win rate. We can’t wait to see them match up with NA’s best.
PEACE announced themselves to Oceania’s Valorant scene during Stage 3. The organization poached notable players from teams like Michael “WRONSKI” Wronski from an impressive Team Bliss, and Ben “Ciko” Easterbrook from Wildcard Gaming.
PEACE failed to make it through to Stage 3’s first closed qualifier but quickly rectified it by winning the second closed qualifier to make it to the Stage 3 Finals. Here, PEACE shocked and impressed the region by making a great run in the Lower Bracket, to finally face ORDER in the Grand Final. PEACE was the only team in the finals to take maps from the eventual champions.
PEACE has also dabbled with the triple initiator comp like 100 Thieves, but instead of applying the comp to Haven, they’ve done it on Ascent. The team has a 71% win rate on Ascent and an event better 74% win rate on the icebox. Expect them to take full advantage of this against teams from NA.
If an NA team wins Masters Berlin, then TSM FTX claims the 10th slot for the LCQ and joins ORDER and PEACE for the final battle for Valorant Champions. Masters will conclude on September 19th, and the NA LCQ will be on October 12-17. Catch all the action on Valorant’s official Twitch Channel.
