Valorant India Invitational 2022: All teams competing in this tournament
The tournament kicked off with the two Indian qualifiers through which Enigma Gaming and GodSquad secured a slot for themselves in the main event. This was followed by the SEA (Southeast Asia) qualifier where some of the top teams from the region faced each other.
Here, Bleed Esports was able to triumph above the rest of its competition after fighting through a stacked double-elimination bracket, which culminated with a thrilling best-of-five series against South Built Esports.
Apart from these teams, five other international teams were handed direct invites for the LAN event which is a part of the 'VCT Offseason' and is scheduled to take place at the GMR Arena in Hyderabad.
All eight teams competing in the Valorant India Invitaional 2022 are,
Paper Rex | Direct Invite | Singapore
Team Secret | Direct Invite | Philippines
Rex Regum Qeon | Direct Invite | Indonesia
BOOM Esports | Direct Invite | Indonesia
Team Heretics | Direct Invite | Spain
Enigma Gaming | India Qualifier 1 | India
GodSquad | India Qualifier 2 | India
Bleed Esports | SEA Qualifier | Singapore
They are the most decorated team competing in this tournament having represented the SEA region at all the major international Valorant competitions that took place in 2022 - VCT Masters Reykjavík, VCT Masters Copenhagen, and Valorant Champions 2022.
Over the course of 2022, Secret has worked hard to become one of the top teams from the Philippines, but has not been able to make its way to any major international Valorant tournament.
They have been far from the level represented by the top teams from SEA, but RRQ has done well within Indonesia having given the local teams a hard time. This could be its opportunity to show how well they can do on international LAN tournaments.
The best team to come out of Indonesia, BOOM has done well this year across the regional and international stage. Working hard to represent their country at the Valorant Champions 2022.
The Spanish organization has faced a long slump since hitting its peak last year during the VCT 2021: Europe Stage 1 Masters. After a dismal season, the team will be looking to build its way back to the top by winning the Valorant India Invitational 2022.
The team might not have gotten a franchise slot for VCT 2023 but it is still one of the top competitors from India with experienced veterans in the mix. WIth a coach who has won a lot of accolades in the country, Enigma could cause some upsets at the tournament.
The famed Valorant lineup of Global Esports before heading to South Korea in preparation of the VCT 2023 season, might be playing its last LAN tournament in India. It remains to be seen if they go out with a bang or not.
With a mixed lineup consisting of player from all over SEA, Bleed Esports has given tough competition to other top contenders from the region but has not been able to triumph over them just yet. Maybe this time the outcome could be different?
These are all the teams that will be travelling to Hyderabad and going against each other for a lion's share of the total prize pool. This off season might be getting a bit more spicier for the SEA region and the tickets for the LAN tournament have also gone live.
