Fixtures for Day 12:

ROG Academy v/s Samurai Esports [0-2]

Next up, we saw Samurai Esports take on ROG Academy who have been experimenting with a 6-man roster swapping out Rya for glyph when in need of a pure-sentinel  à la Killjoy. Samurai Esports did take both the maps, in the typical entertaining nail-biting fashion of 13-11, across both maps of Ascent and Bind.

Hoax and clouda both put up great numbers as the secondary and primary duelists of the ex-Reckoning Esports lineup. They put up a decent performance but it quite obviously was not enough to take them all the way. The games were quite close but in the end, the experience and composure on Samurai Esports in terms of players like excali and psy took them all the way.

Enigma Gaming v/s T69 [2-0]

Day 11 started with the Enigma Gaming v/s T69 game. Enigma Gaming continued their FINE form starting off the series with a 13-0 win on Haven, followed by a tight 13-11 win on Bind.

Badman probably had one of the best games of his career in recent times, aboslutely dominating Team T69 on his trusty Killjoy. He put up a 1.56 thespike.gg rating whilst also putting up a monumental 323 ACS over the two maps. A good game from the rest of Enigma Gaming aswell, with Ghost getting 6 entries whilst only giving away one throughout the entire series!

On the side of Team T69, strixx, the Killjoy for T69 also put up a very good performance, which they could not convert into a win in the end. SSSami also had a fairly decent game, but a nightmare of a game for Binks. Binks, the reknowned Raze from the ex-Paratroopers lineup gave away 11 first bloods across the series!

What to look out for on Day 13:

Day 13 will be packed with bangers as Velocity Gaming look to continue their newfound dominance with mw1 against Team FANGS who have been looking quite good in recent weeks, whilst TempesT take on Team Simple who are quite the unknown force to be reckoned with.

The games will be streamed live here. Tune in at 11 AM IST for action packed VALORANT goodness!
