First Map: Split:
The first map, Split, was picked by Global Esports, saw things going horribly wrong for them on the attacking half. Velocity Gaming took the pistol round for themselves thanks to an extremely pivotal 3 kills in the beginning. On multiple occasions, we saw Excali using his satchels to assume aggressive positions thanks to a support paranoia from the Omen, Rite2ace. This playstyle caught Global Esports off on multiple occasions which allowed them to extend their lead to 5-1, with Velocity in the lead.The rest of the half continued in the same dominating game play from Velocity Gaming, who ended the first half with a 9-3 scoreline.
However, when the side swap took place a new Global Esports was seen. The squad pulled off a massive comeback on the back of great team-coordination. From 9-3, Global Esports pulled out one of the biggest upsets in Indian Valorant to date with ending the game in a 13-9 scoreline.
The come-back was charged by flawless retakes from the Global Esports boys.
