Riot Games released its Top 100 Leaderboards for all regions and for the second time ever, we have an Indian pro make it to the list. Tejas ‘Rite2ace’ Sawant is currently ranked #73 on the APAC leaderboard. Rite2Ace is a part of Velocity Gaming, which is presently the number one Valorant team in India.

What Are the Other Valorant Top 100 Leaderboards Looking Like?
The NA leaderboard features TenZ at the number one spot followed by DOINKMACHINE97 and AsunaCS. A majority of the players in the North American leaderboard main Jett. In the European region, ALIVE is currently the number one player. He is followed by bramz and GO LoWkii. Similar to NA, a majority of the players rely on Jett’s abilities. Her one-hit kill potential and flashy playstyle make her popular at the top level of ranked and competitive play. Riot Games has not pushed out an in-game leaderboard, but once it is implemented, players will be able to see real-time ranked leaderboards for each region. The next Valorant leaderboard will be featured by Riot in December 2020, and we hope more talented Indian players make it to the list!
