This week on Showstopper, Upcomer’s weekly VALORANT show, hosts Yinsu Collins and Tyler “Fionn” Erzberger sat down with Eren “Brave” Kasırga of SuperMassive Blaze to hear his thoughts on VALORANT Champions Tour Stage 3: Masters Berlin.

The 17-year-old Turkish VALORANT star broke down how all of the teams coming from the EMEA region are extremely close in strength. But, he said that he believes his own org and Gambit Esports are the front runners from their region. That’s not to say that Brave doesn’t consider other regions, especially North America, as a serious threat. He mentioned that he feels NA and EMEA are a level above all the other regions in the esport and that he’s excited by the idea of playing the winners from Masters Reykjavik, Sentinels.

Brave also shared some insight on his background in FPS esports. He’s been playing since he was eight years old, inspired by an older brother who was into competitive games. And, he’s been watching Spencer “Hiko” Martin play professional esports since his time in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. He said that he really looks forward to the prospect of playing against him and 100 Thieves in Berlin. Finally, Brave provided his own tier list of all the teams playing in Berlin and, of course, he absolutely roasted Tyler and Yinsu’s attempt at doing the same.

This is one episode of Showstopper that Turkish VALORANT fans will not want to miss.
