Velocity Gaming and Revenant Esports: Who will win the inaugural tie of the AMD Skyesports Valorant Champions Series (SCS)?
Velocity Gaming and Revenant Esports will play a best-of-three series tonight to kick start their journey in the SCS Playoffs. Fans are already excited to witness the series between two of the best Indian teams in the competition.
Considering their current form, both teams are almost on the same page. Hence, it is quite tough to predict a clear winner in this series. However, Velocity Gaming has had a dominant result against all the previous face-offs against Revenant Esports, which will surely increase their confidence ahead of the series.
Velocity Gaming has gone through several changes recently and has struggled to perform at their fullest potential. If the team is able to build a synergy and find the rhythm, Velocity Gaming can become unstoppable. The defending champion will surely try to retain their trophy, and a good start will surely increase their confidence.
On the other hand, Revenant Esports has performed exceptionally well in the SCS Group Stage and has already made a statement by defeating Global Esports. Defeating Velocity Gaming will be another confidence boost for the side ahead of the upcoming matches.
However, the team has always struggled to maintain its momentum. It will be interesting to see how the team deals with this issue in this event.
The two teams have faced each other nine times in the past, and Velocity Gaming is still unbeaten against Revenant Esports. The latter will surely try to change their fortunes tonight by handing Velocity Gaming their first taste of defeat in this series.
Velocity Gaming has won four of their last five games in all competitions whereas Revenant Esports has won three of them.
