Gustavo “Sacy” Rossi for Sentinels emerged as MVP with 20 frags and 283 ACS.


After convincingly winning in map 1, Fans were expecting the same from Sentinels in the second map as well. However, LOUD had a different plan in their mind. Starting as an attacker side on Haven, LOUD were able to secure 7 rounds in the first half despite they were subject to some technical issue as well.

In the latter half, the heat was more as both teams were denying to admit the defeat. After exchanging a few rounds back and forth, It was LOUD who managed to secure the map of Haven and tied the overall score to 1-1. Erick “aspas” Santos on Jett dropped 28 kills and had an ACS of 301.


As the decider, we moved to Ascent. LOUD were relatively heavier side on this map compared to Sentinels. Starting as defenders on defenders’ favored map, LOUD completely capitalizes on this opportunity. They were able to score 9-3 in their favor.

With this win, LOUD concrete its topmost position in VCT Americas League. Not to mention, Erick “aspas” Santos shined once again on Jett with 25 kills.
