Velocity Gaming Qualifies for Valorant Conquerors Championship Main Event
Velocity Gaming is officially the first team to qualify for the Valorant Conquerors Championship (VCC) main event after winning the India Qualifiers 1 grand finals against Global Esports. Despite having a flawless streak with not a single map lost throughout the event, Global Esports failed to end its run at the Valorant Conquerors Championship India Qualifiers on a winning note. Velocity Gaming will get the opportunity to be a part of the Valorant Champions Tour through the upcoming VCC main event, where the team will compete against South Asia’s best teams.
Velocity Gaming vs Global Esports recap
Velocity Gaming took on an early lead against Global Esports with a 13-10 win on Icebox and another 13-10 win on Bind. The team was looking to end the finals on a 3-0 map streak but Global Esports attempted to make a comeback with a solid 13-6 victory on Ascent. However, Velocity Gaming ended the tournament with a closely fought 16-14 victory on Breeze to secure its spot at the Valorant Conquerors Championship main event.
Hope is not lost for teams that failed to qualify in the recent qualifier as there will be another India qualifier which will take place between 29th July and 8th August, where teams will compete for another shot at being a part of the VCC main event.
