Global Esports triumphs against Enigma Gaming in the Skyesports Champions Series finals
All the five maps were played.
Following the highly anticipated India's First VALORANT LAN Event last month in Mumbai, Skyesports recently announced that the whole Skyesports Champions Series playoffs would be held on LAN in Chennai. The Skyesports Champions Series has been regarded as a significant tournament since it serves as a qualifier for the VCT: APAC Stage 2 Challengers, with the top two finalists winning their spots to represent their nation.
The playoffs lasted five days and culminated in a rematch between Enigma Gaming and Global Esports in the finals, similar to the Mumbai LAN finals, where Global Esports swept Engima Gaming 3-0. This also confirms that both Indian teams will be advancing to the VCT: APAC Stage 2 Challengers.
