It finally happened. Myztro Gaming’s Vengeur and RAISY both made the Grand Finals of the Quake World Championship at QuakeCon 2021, guaranteeing Myztro its first-ever QuakeCon Championship.
RAISY qualified for his second consecutive QuakeCon Finals after defeating international rival rapha of Team Liquid 3-0 in the Lower Bracket Finals, sending the 2020 champion packing in 3rd place. RAISY’s appearance in the QuakeCon Finals is his second in his career, making him the first player to appear in the QuakeCon Finals in back-to-back years since rapha and evil did it in 2015 and 2016.
Vengeur made his way to his first-ever QuakeCon Finals after defeating RAISY in the Upper Bracket Finals 3-1. He became the highest placing Italian Quake player in QuakeCon history since his 3rd place finish in 2020 and Stermy’s 3rd place finish in 2010.
The QuakeCon 2021 Grand Finals
The Grand Final culminated in Vengeur winning the Quake Pro League Belt over RAISY 4-2 and cemented his place in the history books as a QuakeCon Champion. Vengeur’s first-ever QuakeCon Championship win is also the first for Myztro Gaming, rounding out another successful season of Quake Pro League for Myztro.
Myztro continued its streak of placing in the top three in all Stage Finals this season, with RAISY placing 2nd in Stage 1, Vengeur placing 3rd in Stage 2, and Vengeur and RAISY placing 1st and 2nd in the Quake World Championship. In the Quake Pro League’s history, Myztro has placed at least in the top 4 in every event.
Vengeur is the first player other than k1llsen, rapha, or Cooller to win a Quake Pro League event, as well as the youngest QPL event winner, being 11 years younger than the average winner’s age of 33. Both finalists were under 30, which bodes well for the growth of Quake, as well as getting younger players into the scene.

Myztro also had two other players compete for the belt at QuakeCon 2021, those being GaRpY and Xron. Xron, placing second overall in EU Challengers, fell to Spart1e 1-3, while GaRpY kicked off the competition against challenger PASITA in a thrilling win 3-2. GaRpY would bow out of the tournament, losing 1-2 to rapha (their third meeting at QPL events) and DaHanG 1-2.
We are very proud of our players, and we will continue our dominance in the Quake scene.
It is the Age of Myztro. Everyone else is just living in it.
