From NA, we can see the reigning champs are back but Version 1 failed to qualify this time around. 100 Thieves and Envy have really improved and managed to qualify for masters this time around.

The most surprising change probably comes from EMEA as neither of the Masters Iceland qualifiers managed to make it for Berlin this time around. It will be exciting to see what the 4 new teams bring to the table.

KRU esports have qualified for this Master’s as well. Crazy Raccoons have also managed to qualify again but ZETA DIVISION is a new face from Japan.
