First Strike is in the books, and that means it’s time to look over the regional rankings in the world of VALORANT. With a plethora of titles confirmed all over the world here are THESPIKE.GG Regional Rankings for December 9th, 2020.
Europe is up next and all that can be said is: the king is dead, long live the king. After months of rule under the iron fist of the dominant G2 Esports, it is time for a new king, and that king is Team Heretics who took home the top prize in First Strike Europe Regional Final. G2 didn’t fall far, ending on the second spot in our rankings, followed closely by SUMN FC. SUMN FC moved to third, though their excellent showing in First Strike has them reeling in G2 more and more by the week. FunPlus Phoenix are right on the heels of SUMN FC, and could catch them with one or two good results. Team Liquid, nolpenki and OrglessV are all close in the rankings filling out the meat of the European rankings due to their 5th-8th finishes in First Strike. Vodafone Giants end up eighth in the rankings while All Knights bring up the 9th spot in the rankings after taking the win in First Strike Turkey Regional Final, BBL have shown excellent form of late, and as Europe comes back together for non-First Strike events, could be a dark horse heading into 2021. Gambit Esports round out the top 10, though that spot is tenuous at best, with others looking to challenge them for the crown of the CIS region.
