Velocity Gaming (VLT) is the winner of Qualifier #4 of Esportz Premier Series - Valorant. After an epic battle over all five maps, they edged True Rippers Esports (TR) in a tight match 3-2 to claim the largest part of the INR 1,00,000 prize pool with winning INR 50,000 and the last slot of the INR 10,00,000 MEGA Lan Finale in December. 

True Rippers Esports and Enigma Gaming came in second and third, collecting INR 30,000 and INR 20,000, respectively.


Velocity Gaming vs True Rippers Esports: 

Finale Maps: Breeze, Ascent, Icebox, Haven, and Split. 

  • Breeze: Velocity Gaming started on the attackers' side of their first map selection to capture the opening pistol round of the series and continued to pile up rounds behind it, taking a 6-0 lead and completing the half with a solid 10-2. TR 1TaPGOD took matters into his own hands in the second pistol round with a 1 vs 3 clutch in favour. TR recovered to some extent, but VLT remained well ahead and finally closed the map with a 13-6 scoreline.
  • Ascent: VLT kicked off strong once again, but TR began to respond from the first buy round, and the first half ended with a score of 6-6. Switching sides, TR barely gave VLT any opportunities dominating as defenders, winning 13-7 and tying the series at 1-1.
  • Icebox: Similarly to Breeze, VLT won the pistol on their second map pick of the series, and dominated the first half with a 9-3 score, thus finishing the map with a 13-4 score.
  • Haven: From the outset of Map 4, both teams were neck-and-neck, with the first half ending in a 6-6 tie. TR, on the other hand, began to get a strong hold on the map as the game progressed, and they snatched it away to force a deciding Map 5 of Split.
  • Split: Despite the fact that TR got over to a good start by winning the first round, they were unable to accomplish much as VLT gained the upper hand and finally finished out the final map with a score of 13-8, securing a 3-2 victory in the series.
