TSM enters Pop Flash in red-hot form

There’s a reason TSM enters as the favorite for this event – they’re currently dominating the competition in North America. The top NA teams have played two events so far in August, the Knights Invitational Gauntlet Series and the FaZe Clan Valorant Invitational. TSM won both events in convincing fashion, taking down Sentinels, Gen.G and other top sides.

The lineup features some well-known North American CS:GO players, mixing veteran experience with up-and-coming talent to a deadly effect. Players like Stephen “reltuC” Cutler, Matthew “Wardell” Yu and Yassine “Subroza” Taoufik highlight the squad and have quickly emerged as some of Valorant’s best.

Can Sentinels reclaim the NA throne?

While TSM is currently the team to beat, it wasn’t long ago that Sentinels were the ones that North American Valorant teams feared. The team was only finalized on June 1 but almost immediately dominated the scene.

They took down all the big names in July, winning the PAX Arena Invitational with a dominant 3-1 victory over Cloud9 in the final, before taking down TSM at the 30Bomb: Summer Cup, once again very convincingly.

The team also has what is arguably the highest-profile lineup in the entire game. Overwatch League and world champion Jay “sinatraa” Won shocked the world by making a switch to Valorant, only months after becoming the player many considered to be the greatest of all time. Hunter “SicK” Mims also made an unexpected switch, despite being considered one of the best upcoming talents in CS:GO.

They’ve slowed down a bit in August but will no doubt be looking to come back in a big way at Pop Flash NA.

Is it finally Gen.G’s time to shine?

Gen.G has always been at the highest levels of North American Valorant but never quite the best. The team has won a few small events since joining the organization in May but has been falling short in recent months, with their results marred in second- to fourth-place finishes.

It’s not that they’re not good enough to win either. They’ve managed to defeat the likes of TSM and Sentinels before, just not when it mattered most.

We can expect Gen.G to put up another impressive showing here, no doubt reaching the playoffs, but the question remains: Can they finally win an event?
