After winning 2-1 against Damwon Gaming, Global Esports will soon be going up against Singaporean team Paper Rex in the Valorant Champions Tour APAC LCQ Quarterfinals.

Riot Games' popular first-person shooter Valorant has not only established a global esports community, but has also created the Valorant Champions Tour tournament series, a year-long series of tournaments where teams from across the world compete to become the Valorant Champions 2021.

While South Asia wasn’t an official circuit point region during the 2021 VCT, the South Asian teams got a shot to compete and make their way to the Valorant Champions 2021 through the APAC Last Chance Qualifier. Indian team Global Esports won the Valorant Conquerors Championship and qualified for the Valorant Champions Tour Asia Pacific Last Chance Qualifier.
