We have made this list in descending order so you know which teams to look out for
The NA team has established a very solid reputation in the competitive landscape of Valorant in a very short time. The team has been known to establish a solid win streak and the recent example of it was its rampage in the Masters Reykjavik. They are known to be true protagonists of the professional landscape of Valorant.
And they have every right to be since they are led by ShahZam who is a former top-tier professional CSGO player. The team has earned over $446,000 in winnings so far and this figure will likely increase in the future.
Asian continent hosts some of the best teams in the world of esports, so it is no surprise that the continent is making its mark in Valorant. NUTURN has established a solid reputation for taking down some of the best teams from North America and Europe. Alongside Sentinels, they are also seen as the top contenders for the VCT titles. Many even label the team as “Korean Sentinels” owing to their remarkable run in the Korean competitions. So it will be exciting to see which team will be crowned the world champions in the future.
It is no surprise that one of the biggest names in Esports is investing in Valorant. The organization is currently headquartered in London, United Kingdom, and hosts a highly talented Valorant roster. They have not been at the level of NUTURN and Sentinels but have shown surprising results on many occasions which also includes their 2nd place finish in the Masters Reykjavik.
One of the best elements of Fnatic is that they hold a very young and highly talented roster, which should get the best possible treatment by one of the biggest esports organizations in the EU.
Team Vikings is a Brazilian side that was founded by professional soccer/football players Kaique Rocha and João Pedro. Rocha holds a very respectable place in the Italian Club, Sampdoria while Pero is a regular starter for English Premier club Warford. Team Vikings made its mark in the Iceland Masters by finishing the competition at 6th place. It just shows that the Brazilian side can take down any team on its day.
The only representative of Southeast Asia in this list of top-ranked Valorant teams in 2021 is X10 Esports. The team is led by Scary and has made a solid mark in the Southeast Asia Stage 2 Challengers. They were eliminated by Fnatic in the lower bracket of the Master Reykjavik. Yet their playing style and chemistry were a joy to watch. We are confident that X10 has what it takes to cause major upsets in the future.
Crazy Raccoon was established in 2020 and is the sole representative of the land of the Rising Sun. Even though the team is new, it has wasted no time in the competitive circuit of Korea and Japan. They might have faced early elimination in the Masters Reykjavik but there is no doubt that they have the potential to produce fantastic results.
Possibly the biggest organization in the esports industry, Team Liquid holds multiple rosters in multiple gaming titles. So it is no surprise to see the team going for Valorant. They have their fair share of ups and downs in the competitive landscape of Valorant, yet they still managed to get a 4th place finish in Iceland. And we should prepare for surprises from them in the world championship.
KRÜ Esports is a team of young talented stars from the Latin American country of Argentina. Like team Viking, the team was established by soccer/football star Sergio Aguero who recently signed a deal with Spanish giants Russia. Even though the roster is inexperienced, it still managed to reach the Iceland Masters and should produce decent results in future competitions. But they might get overshadowed by other top-tier names in this list.
Version1 was established by Wilf Family at the start of this year and has become a force to be reckoned with in the North American competitive circuit. The team did fail to qualify for the VCT in the first stage, yet they came back all guns blazing in Stage 2. As they managed to achieve qualification by beating FaZe Clan, another top-tier esports organization. Now they will be representing the NA region alongside the NA giants Sentinels. It should be interesting to see how they will make their mark amongst the best in the world
Another Brazilain name alongside Team Vikings is Sharks Esports and is tipped by many as the underdog of the competitive landscape. The team has always fallen in the shadow of Team Vikings but has shown great results in recent teams and we could see them getting the better of Team Vikings in the future months.
