The Valorant Conquerors Championship Qualifier 1 has been a great indicator of how big Riot’s shooter has grown in India over the last year.
NODWIN Gaming’s VCC is the pathway circuit even to the Valorant Champions Tour, and it provides teams in South Asia with a shot at representing their region on the international stage.
Though the majority of the games in the first qualifier were not streamed by NODWIN, the semi-finals and the finals were. The El Classico between Global Esports and Velocity Gaming not only brought the competition to a close but also broke some viewership records for PC sports in India.
According to the recent statistical record by NODWIN Gaming, the finals between the two Valorant heavyweights had over 30k+ concurrent viewership, across NODWIN’s multilingual YouTube and Twitch channels.
The record comes at an all-time high and breaks Skyesports previous record of 16k from the Valorant League, which was hosted earlier this year.

“This is why we love esports! We live for healthy rivalries, the fan-idol moments, and the adrenaline rush of nail-biting clashes. We knew the views for the VCC Qualifier #1 would be phenomenal, but to have the viewership numbers break all previous records, was just incredible.”
