Global Esports

Velocity Gaming took the first map, Global's pick 13-10. They started off strong in the series, with a good win, and clearly exploited the weaknesses in Global's defense.

However Global Esports even-ed it up on Haven, taking Velocity map pick in an extremely close match. Hellf had an unbelievable game but it wasn't enough to drag VLT through the map, and the series moved on to GE's pick of Breeze.

Global Esports managed to clinch away their own map pick 15-13, in an tight back and forth. Hellranger showed his team why he's the captain, and led by example, with a 100% ESR, with 3 first bloods for his team, whilst also going 1.61 rating on his trusty controller, Viper.

Velocity did bring the game back to GE on their own map pick of Icebox, which GE is infamously not their best map. However the game was still very competitive with it finishing out 13-9. The first half ended 6-6, with both teams evened out. The second half, VLT definetly switched on and let GE have only 3 more rounds.

On to the decider map, Ascent, where both teams are quite comfortable. Velocity Gaming started the game on defense, and seemed to have the series and map on lock, with a comfortable 9-3 half. But GE clearly had other ideas, with them bringing it back on their own defense and not Velocity Gaming win a single round on the attack side, ending the game 3-2 and taking the map 13-9.

With this win Global Esports will be the first team from the region to play on LAN, in an offline setting and will represent South Asia in the Asia-Pacific Last Chance Qualifiers for VALORANT Champions, the end of year global LAN, with teams from all over the world, the epitome of Professional VALORANT.
