@eBay - @sheetz

The M80 squad is one of the most hyped sides in its region of NA and is considered good enough to be among the Americas League teams. They have solid players across the board and have so far showcased excellent Valorant gameplay both in terms of ideas and execution.


Moist Moguls were recently acquired by popular streamer Ludwig. After a hiccup in their first game under the new banner, the team bounced back and has been on a winning streak since.

It is difficult to predict who will win this series, considering how equally the two teams are matched. While Moist Moguls have displayed great resilience against most teams, M80 might be able to overpower them and clinch the match if they perform well.


The two teams have not played against each other in the past.
