Team Envy’s performance during the First Strike Qualifier was exceptional. Winning against 100 Thieves in the NSG Closed Qualifiers Grand Final granted them recognitions from the VALORANT community. Now, Relyks is also considering them to be a strong contender for the champions title at First Strike’s main event. 

During his stream session on Twitch yesterday, Relyks responded to a specific comment that said, “Who do you think is favored to win first strike?”. He predicted that it’s going to be Team Envy. Relyks thinks Team Envy might be under-credited & they are capable enough to pull off stunning outcomes. He also added, “ I think it’s going to be a really close tournament; I legitimately think any team that you see on the top 8 of First Strike, I think any team can beat any team depending on the day”.

First Strike NA will crown one champion for the region. While Sentinels is way ahead of Team Envy according to statistics, individual performance from kaboose, food, or crashies can change this team’s fate. After stepping down from T1’s active roster, food & crashies rebuilt Team Envy’s structure. Throughout the First Strike Qualifier, their presence in the squad had a substantial impact.
