TEC Valorant Invitational Season 3 Announced
The third season of the intense Valorant tournament, where select teams from across the country are directly invited to compete against each other has returned once again for its third season featuring an INR 300,000 ($4,141 approx.) prize pool. The 8 teams which have been directly invited this time around are as follows,
- Global Esports
- Enigma Gaming
- Rebellious Gaming
- S8ul Esports
- Team Mahi
- Samurai Esports (Formerly known as XTZ Esports)
- Patel Esports
The good mix of teams brings in a fresh breath of excitement as we have old and experienced teams like GE, Mahi, Enigma, and Samurai, along with some new contenders like S8ul, F1, Rebellious, and Patel, who are looking to make a name for themselves. While the fan favorites to win the tournament will once again be GE and Mahi, there is always a chance for an upset if the stars align for a particular newcomer.
Each match leading up to the final will be a three-game series except for the grand finale, which will be featuring a best-of-five faceoff. A double-elimination bracket ensures that we will not lose our favorite teams in an instant, a second life will be given to each team leading up to the final match.
The INR 300,000 ($4,141 approx.) prize pool will only be divided between the top four teams. So teams will be trying their best to at least reach the ‘Lower Bracket Round 3’ otherwise they will be going back empty-handed.
The tournament will be starting today onwards (27 March) from 16:00 (IST) with the first match set to take place between Rebellious and S8ul, followed by GE and Enigma going against each other at 20:00 (IST). The remaining 4 teams will be playing tomorrow (28 March) at the same time slots.
All these matches will be live-streamed ‘The Esports Club - YouTube Channel’, so all those who are interested can come and support their favorite teams.
