What Are Some Storylines To Watch Out for VALORANT Challengers League 2024 DACH Evolution: Split 1?

The tournament is currently in the early phases. MOUZ Esports has already defeated two teams who are currently in the top 4 while firmly in first place. Due to this, it does seem that they will have an easier 2nd phase of the tournament. Teams who make it in the top 2 positions don’t get a distinct advantage over the teams in 3rd or 4th position.


With Click on their team, SK Gaming does look like the team to watch out for. Having already lost to MOUZ, they have a good chance of keeping their spot in the top 4 in the group stage. With 6 teams having won just one game each, this could be one of the few VALORANT Challenger Leagues around the world to have no team that has not won a single game.
