KRÜ eSports The Team To Watch At Champions
Established by Sergio Agüero in 2020, while only a little over a year old, KRÜ are already making a name for themselves playing VALORANT. What’s more, they’ve got more than enough going for them in terms of experience. The upcoming tournament will be their fifth big event.
Speaking ahead of the event, Nicolas “Klaus” Ferrari proclaimed how raising the VOLORANT cup would not only be a dream come true for him personally, but more importantly, for the entire LatAm region as a whole. Winning would mean putting the region in “good shape” for both the sport and eSports betting fans.
A Win For LatAm
KRÜ earned a spot at this year’s Masters Reykjavic off back-to-back second place spots in their opening tournaments. Both tournaments were played against Wygers Argentina.
Eager to make the action count for LatAm, the eSports team gave upsetting the EMEA and Brazilian teams their all. However, after losses to Team Liquid and Fnatic, they ended up finish in eighth position, and hot on the heels of X10 Esports.
Then, in Chile, the team played a champion’s streak by going undefeated through the remaining VCT tournaments. Their victories included successful runs against the Australs, 9z Team, and Revense Esports, and saw them qualifying for a berth in what would be their second international LAN – the Masters Berlin.
Here, they would fare much better than what they did in the Masters Reykjavic. From the 16 teams that participated, KRÜ Esports finished 8th overall, and new online bookies sat up and took notice.
Hard Work Pays Off
Even with their 8th place finish, the team still managed to make it into the Champions.
Counting massively in their favour has been their consistency all throughout. They’ve had but a single change to their roster, which came when former starting roster member Benjamin “bnj” Rabinovich moved to reserve. But the team more than rectified this by bringing in former VALORANT content creator Angelo “keznit” Mori.
Keznit emerged more than just a great decision when at Masters Berlin he dropped more than 50 kills in the match against ZETA DIVISION. He also dropped 45 more in KRÜ’s match against Vivo Keyd.
According to what Keznit told a local eSports broadcaster during an interview, Latin America can now look forward to reaching a new level of prominence at Champions. He said team KRÜ is proof once again of what becomes possible with hard work and dedication. And new online bookies sites and fans can’t wait to see how the action plays out.
