The first LAN tournament of 2023 to take place in India, Esportz Premier Series Valorant, has concluded after a gruelling grand finale between Revenant Esports and Lethal Esports.

Both teams were more than prepared for the best-of-five grand finale which was played in front of a live audience at the OPAL Convention Center in Borivali, Mumbai.

It was a treat for everyone in attendance and those watching online, as the series went down to the final map. Revenant Esports found that last bit of strength to pull ahead and won the match with a close 3-2 scoreline.

The year-long esports tournament featuring multiple competitive titles has concluded with the Valorant event taking place on LAN across the last two days, 5th and 6th January.

A total of six teams had managed to qualify for the main event through the four qualifiers held last year, taking on each other in a single-elimination bracket where every match featured a best-of-three series.

Lethal Esports and Revenant Esports had received an opportunity to directly start competing from the semifinal stage onwards as they were the first two teams to qualify for the main event.

Utilizing this head start positively, both teams managed to qualify for the grand finale, setting up an exciting grand finale face off that went down to the wire.

Lethal Esports started the proceedings with a really close overtime victory on its map pick Pearl, 14-12, both teams opting for an almost identical lineup of agents that focused heavily on seeking information and taking control.

Revenant Esports fought back in the next map, delivering a 13-7 blow that certainly put the other team on the backfoot and affected their moral negatively. This was evident on Haven, where Revenant once again handed a huge '13-9' defeat to Lethal and secured a lead in the series.

Despite being close to getting eliminated, Lethal managed to pull through with a 13-11 victory on Ascent as the match progressed to the final map, Breeze, where Revenant Esports found its last bit of strength to push back and secure a 13-10 victory.

With a 3-2 scoreline, Revenant Esports walked away as the champion of Esportz Premier Series Valorant while also bagging INR 2,50,000 in prize money.
