Congratulations to Paper Rex on becoming the winners and the amazing victory, we hope to see more such teams competing again in India soon.” said Siddharth Ravishankar, Chief Gaming Officer, Galaxy Racer.

Despite Team Heretics coming back into the game by prevailing in the second map, the determination of the eventual champions did not falter one bit as they came back from behind to win the next two maps 13-10 and 13-8 respectively and clinched the coveted trophy.

Apart from the two finalists, semi-finalists Bleed Esports and Team Secret each won USD 10,000 while the other four teams: Enigma Gaming, Rex RegumQeon, Boom Esports, and GodSquad secured USD 2,500 each for their efforts in the tournament.

Global Esports’ GodSquad, the sole Indian team to get a slot at the Valorant Champions Tour 2023-24 produced formidable victories against Bleed Esports and Boom Esports in the group stage but narrowly missed out on the semi-finals due to game difference.

Being the first international LAN Valorant tournament taking place in Southeast Asia, Valorant India Invitational witnessed sensational action from eight top-notch teams and was one of the biggest tournaments held in India this year. The Championship also witnessed a collaboration with Sunburn, Arena to showcase a mix of esports and music for the very first time.
