Global Esports qualified for Valorant Champions Tour Stage 1 APAC Challengers
After a late invite to VCT 2021, the South Asian region of Valorant finally has reason to rejoice as VCT 2022 guarantees two spots for the region at the Stage 1 APAC Challengers.
Velocity Gaming were the first team to qualify as they ousted Global Esports in the Upper Bracket Finals earlier today. However, Global Esports fought through, as they faced another top-tier Indian team in the Lower Bracket Finals.
Enigma Gaming put up a tough fight on the first map, claiming eight consecutive rounds at one point. Global Esports, however, were not willing to relinquish their hopes. They responded back with a performance that resulted in a 13 - 10 win on Split and 13 - 5 on Haven.
Nicknamed "Val Classico," the matchup between Global Esports and Velocity Gaming will be an interesting one, as both teams occupy the mantle of India's most dominant force in Valorant esports.
Irrespective of the results of the matchup, both sides will compete at the Stage 1 APAC Challengers, alongside teams from the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam and Oceania.
Thereon, the top two teams will receive a golden ticket to the prestigious Stage 1 Masters event of VCT 2022.
