NAVI vs LOUD Preview and Predictions – Valorant Champions 2023

NAVI vs LOUD is the first Decider matchup of Valorant Champions 2023 Group Stage

In what is easily the most electrifying showdown of the event so far, NAVI will be taking on LOUD in the Decider matchup of Group D. The two star-studded teams will be sharing the server for the first time, and the stakes could not be higher for their inaugural encounter. With both teams teetering on the edge of elimination, winning is a must to secure a spot in the playoffs and extend their journey in Champions 2023. That said, here is our preview and prediction guide for this high-voltage and eagerly awaited matchup.


The Valorant community has been engaged in discussions surrounding NAVI's failure to fully harness the potential of their roster for quite a while now. Following their recent 2-1 loss against DRX, questions have arisen regarding ANGE1's in-game leadership strategy and his inclination to engage in early duels despite playing as a smoker. Despite these doubts about the Ukrainian organization's tactical acumen, there remains no dispute about their capability to overcome the very best in the world, including LOUD.

LOUD finally seemed to have found their groove. After a somewhat shaky start against DRX, they rebounded impressively against Team Liquid. Winning 2-0 against the EMEA League champions while dropping only ten rounds is bound to boost the team’s morale. The most notable part of the matchup was how the Brazillians tweaked their team comp on Split to perfectly counter the current meta composition (double duelist, double controller, Skye).
