OpTic Gaming’s Valorant roster have made the final of the VCT Masters Reykjavik tournament.

They secured the winners final rematch with a comprehensive 3-0 victory against ZETA Division.

They’ll now have to face Brazilian team LOUD again for the chance to lift the trophy at the end of the first Stage of this year’s VCT.

Map 1 – Haven: OpTic Gaming 15-13 ZETA Division

The first map of the series looked as though it should have been there for the taking for ZETA Division.

The Japanese team ran out to a 7-5 lead at half-time. They then won four straight after the break to take a commanding 11-5 lead.

OpTic then rallied back, finishing five rounds in a row on kills in order to bring the map back to within touching distance.

ZETA took one more round, but OpTic answered back with two on the bounce to force overtime.

OpTic then took three of four and quickly flexed their ability to find kills once again to take map one.

Marved’s 35/16 really carried OpTic through this map, and really did give them the change to be in with a shout of winning it.

Map 2 – Fracture: OpTic Gaming 13-5 ZETA Division

This. Is. OpTic’s. Map.

If I was LOUD, I would be banning this one as soon as humanly possibly in the Grand Finals.

OpTic have looked unbelievable on Fracture so far in the bracket stage of the VCT.

ZETA took the first two rounds of play and it was almost as if OpTic responded by leaning a little further into their monitors.

They then took the next 16 rounds to a score of 13-3 to see out the map.

Victor ended up being the dynamism that OpTic needed on the map, with the new Neon character showing it’s viability in certain situations.

Map 3 – Bind: OpTic Gaming 13-8 ZETA Division

The final map of the series really bookmarked it as a display of what OpTic are all about.

The team, in the space of three maps, showed their ability to win every kind of game.

They won the huge comeback in map one, the demolition in map two and then they ground out a result in map three on Bind.

They had a pretty decent first half of the map on offence. They managed to take an 8-4 lead into the half.

They came out of the break on fire too but then ZETA started to put some rounds together, taking four of five at one point.

OpTic, just when they desperately needed it, turned the screw and saw the map out without any fuss or embarrassment.

No single player stood out here either, it was a proper, proper team effort.

OpTic now move on to tomorrow night’s Grand Finals. They will meet Brazilian team LOUD in a rematch of the winners final from Friday.
