Alright, the Alpha Group Stage of the VCT LOCK//IN tournament is over, and now it's time for the Omega Stage to begin. Many say that it will be less exciting; well, it will be hard to top the NRG vs. LOUD match. Still, we expect to see Valorant at the highest level, and the teams we'll show you today are rosters that seem to be really promising and will surely give us a lot of excitement in their matches.

The VCT 2022 season has been underwhelming for Sentinels, who had achieved such success in VCT 2021 that their fans were expecting only the best. Sadly, they have yet to reach that level of greatness, but the current roster, a combination of Sentinels, XSET, and the current Valorant World Champions, LOUD, is definitely nothing to sneeze at.

Natus Vincere has become the former FunPlus Phoenix roster, except Ardis "ardiss" Svarenieks, who is now with This roster has already accomplished a lot, such as winning VCT Copenhagen, placing fourth in VCT Champions 2022, and performing superbly in EMEA Challengers 2022. If you're looking for a team to bet on, well, there you have it.

And there we have another all-star roster with former Team Liquid members and ex-M3 Champions/Gambit Esports players in place of ScreaM and Nivera. While losing the 'headshot brothers' is a shame, nAts and Redgar are surely up to the challenge. Especially Redgar is a valuable addition, as he brings much IGL experience to the table; something that Team Liquid have been missing out on in recent months. Plus, the team has Sayf, a gifted player formerly of the Guild Esports roster, who will likely take on the Duelist role.

100 Thieves

100 Thieves' roster will be pretty much the same team that battled their way to the Valorant Champions through the Last Chance Qualifiers in the latter part of 2022. The only switch is the addition of Cryocells, who was formerly a part of XSET in 2022, and is admired as one of the superior players from the North American region and maybe even globally. This formation certainly looks encouraging, and we can't wait to watch them go up against all the other top-tier teams.

Fnatic has been a powerhouse in Valorant since the start, pouring its resources into achieving the top results. Their 2023 VCT lineup is one of the finest in the EMEA region, with players of exceptional skill and experience. Having previously contended in major tournaments, they have an edge that could take them all the way. Despite having a pretty successful year, Fnatic remains hungry for victory, having not yet won a Masters tournament.
