The best Valorant bookmakers have priced Team Heretics as 1.12 favourites to defeat Gentle Mates, who enter the match as 5.30 underdogs. As the best VCT EMEA team in the league facing one of the weakest, Heretics just might deserve this price tag.

Head to Head

Gentle Mates and Team Heretics have yet to meet this season.

Team Heretics Form

Team Heretics might not only be one of the best Valorant esports teams in EMEA but one of the top teams in the world. While they’ve yet to win a domestic tournament, they did place second in VCT 2024: EMEA Kickoff and Stage 1 and even made it all the way to the finals at VCT 2024: Masters Shanghai.

So, while Hereitc have yet to collect a gold medal, their consistency and three silver medals are good enough proof of this team’s quality.

So far in Stage 2, Team Heretics have yet to lose a game, with victories against Natus Vincere, FUT Esports, and GIANTX. They did, however, need three maps to make it past GIANTX after losing the overtime on Split (13-15).

Team Heretics have not made any roster changes.

  • Benjy "benjyfishy" Fish
  • Dominykas "MiniBoo" Lukaševičius
  • Enes "RieNs" Ecirli
  • Mert "Wo0t" Alkan

Gentle Mates Form

Gentle Mates desperately need to win this match. They’re 3-5 on the season and 1-2 this stage, meaning they will be eliminated from the playoff race if they lose another series. But while Gentle Mates urgently need to win, this won’t come easy.

As already proven last stage, Gentle Mates are not up to par with other top contenders in the league. Seeing them struggle against the likes of FUT Esports and GIANTX only further confirms that they should have no business beating the best European team.

Their only win of the stage came against KOI.

No roster changes for Gentle Mates.

  • Nathan "nataNk" Bocqueho
  • Jonathan "TakaS" Paupard
  • Wailers "Wailers" Locart
  • Thomas "kAdavra" Johner


We’ve seen favourites slit a few times this season, but it’s very hard to justify backing Gentle Mates here. Even though Heretics slipped a bit against GIANTX, Gentle Mates are nowhere near as strong, and their past results against stronger opponents are all you need to figure out how this will go.

Team Heretics should sweep without any problems.
