Velocity Gaming v/s Team Exploit [2-0]:
Velocity Gaming who faced Team Exploit in the upper bracket semi-finals, a rematch of their earlier showdown which ended in an upset in Team Exploit's favour. However, today VLT redeemed themselves with an impressive 2-0, in their own favour, with extremely close games on both maps.
The first map was Bind, on which VLT started Defending, getting 4 rounds, which is far from ideal on Bind. However a strong T-side with 8 rounds in the bag ensured they went into overtime with good momentum with the comeback. They won both their rounds in OT and secured the map in what seemed like a massive disappointment for Team Exploit.
An impressive day for Marzil with him being subbed on for this extremely crucial match, and putting on quite the performance on his Raze. Him constantly getting those first picks, and creating ample space and opportunity for his team was incredible to see. Amaterasu once again with an unbelievable game, with mw1 not far off behind in terms of the scoreboard.
The second map in the series was Icebox, which again ended 12-14 in favor of VLT, leading to them taking the series 2-0.
Marzil once again played here, in place of Vibhor, with him being on the Killjoy which was definitely unexpected to say the very least. He managed to put out a respectable performance, but the standout performer was definitely Storax, going 25-18 with an unbelievable 78% Entry Success Rate, with 7 entries gained for his team.
Global Esports v/s Team Exploit [2-1]:
Global Esports faced off against Team Exploit in the lower bracket Finals, to qualify for the Grand Finale. Global Esports took the first map being Split, 13-3, in a dominating fashion.
The standout performer of this series was unshockingly SKRossi, putting out an insane 315 ACS, and a 1.97, +30 K-D series out across 3 maps against an inform Team Exploit. The second map, Bind, was clearly the turf of Team Exploit, with them being quite strong on it across VCC so far. They took the map 13-8, with it being a relatively competitive game.
The deciding map was Icebox, which Global Esports dominated once again with a strong 13-4 finish. The series was done and dusted, and GE confirmed their place in the finals for yet another showdown against VLT, whilst Team Exploit were knocked out after a solid showing in the event.
Velocity Gaming will take on their Arch Nemesis' in Global Esports tomorrow in what can be dubbed the VALClassico, of our time and region. The perpetual match up we've seen over the year in South Asia will once again take place on the highest stage so far; the VCC Grand Finale, with the highest stakes and the most pressure.
You can catch the game tomorrow live at 5 PM IST here.
