  • FUT Esports are Europe's third-seed

Head to Head


Dragon Ranger Gaming and FUT Esports have yet to meet.

FUT Esports Form


FUT Esports had a rough path so far this Valorant esports season. They didn't accomplish much in February when the Turkish side ended VCT 2024: EMEA Kickoff in seventh-ninth place, but improved their impression in Stage 1.

In  VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 1, FUT Esports looked incredible during the group stage and won Group Omega with a 4-1 record and a +39 round differential. They continued posting solid results in the playoffs but came a bit short of catching up with the league's top teams – Fnatic and Team Heretics – who beat FUT in the upper bracket and lower bracket finals.

Still, finishing third in VCT EMEA is a commendable achievement, proving that FUT Esports are the real deal. Unfortunately, they failed to prove it, as they lost their VCT 2024: Masters Shanghai Round 1 clash with FunPlus Phoenix (1-2).

Dragon Ranger Gaming Form


Dragon Ranger Gaming qualified for VCT 2024: Masters Shanghai as China's third seed, so much like FUT Esports, Dragon Ranger Gaming proved they're a competitive team domestically, but not quite as strong as the top squads.

As the lowest seed from the weakest VCT region, Dragon Ranger Gaming entered VCT 2024: Masters Shanghai billed as the biggest underdogs, and they've yet to prove otherwise

They got bodied by Team Heretics in the first round of the Swiss Stage, managing just ten rounds across the two maps played – indicating that Dragon Ranger Gaming are simply not cut out to compete for a strong placement in Shanghai.

Verdict

FUT Esports didn't look good in their loss against FunPlus Phoenix, but it's important to note that FUT performed uncharacteristically poorly on the day. So, while we shouldn't ignore that defeat, it's also fair to take it with a grain of salt.

Dragon Ranger Gaming, on the other side, got smashed by Team Heretics in Round 1, but that was expected. Still, even though they're not up against a weaker European team, it's hard to believe Dragon Ranger Gaming will manage to accomplish much.
