Recently, a new player has gained a lot of popularity in the VALORANT Challengers Split. Eric “Kanpeki” Xu, who joined TSM on February 27, has become the top-rated player in the North American Challengers Split One, according to VLR.gg. Although he has not played as many games as two M80 players, Kanpeki has a ranking of 1.36 since joining TSM.
M80 and The Guard have tied for first place in Group B with four wins and one defeat. Gianfranco “koalanoob” Potestio, an M80 duelist, and initiator player Daniel “eeiu” Vucenovic received ratings of 1.33 and 1.26, respectively, on VLR.gg. Koalanoob leads all other competitors with an overall average combat rating of 273.3.
Other players who have stood out include Trent Cairns, the creator of The Guard, who is ranked just above Marshall “N4RRATE” Massey, who joined MAD Lions in great form. The two have evaluations of 1.18 or higher.
Despite the top players being primarily on the top teams in the first split, there is still plenty of time for individual players to improve their rankings. The Mid-Season Face Off, which starts on March 22, will continue the first division and provide more opportunities for players to demonstrate their abilities. In conclusion, the VALORANT Challengers Split has seen a new player rise to the top of the rankings, but there are still several other impressive players who have caught the attention of viewers.
