TSM vs Gen.G breaks the record of longest Valorant match set by Velocity Gaming Vs God Squad: The match between Gen.G and TSM is the longest professional VALORANT game ever played on the North American VALORANT Champions Tour. God Squad and Velocity Gaming held the previous record for the longest game. God Squad battled Velocity for 40 rounds of VALORANT before succumbing. The game took place in India as part of the TEC Challenger Series #1. Velocity and God Squad established the record for the longest game in VALORANT history with a score of 19-21. That record was finally broken a year later.
Its 2077. Im still watching the TSM x GenG Match. I had 4 children. Subroza retired and his son his playing for him now. Wardell has over 3000 kills and TSM has a map point but naturE clutches 1v5. My wife left me.

TSM was not in a good position, and they needed to win to avoid elimination. The opening match of the series was won by Gen.G, who defeated them in Bind with a very normal 13-10 score. However, when both teams arrived in Split, the scoreline and the contest itself were a little out of hand. TSM eventually triumphed with an incredible 23-21 score, surpassing the record for the longest game.

In the match of Gen.G vs Tsm, not only most numbers of overtime records broken but NaturE from Team SoloMid racked up 49 kills on KAY/O, who has only been in three main events in the NA Challengers. In professional competition, scoring 40+ kills on a single map is uncommon, as it usually demands multiple rounds of overtime. Split, fortunately for NaturE, went to a whopping 44 rounds.
TSM advanced to the upper bracket’s second round, where they will face the victor of Version1 vs. T1. Gen.G is still in contention since they have moved down to Challengers two’s lower bracket and can still qualify for the Challengers Playoffs if they win two games in a row. However, a loss before the Challengers Playoffs or Masters Three Berlin would put a stop to their journey at Stage Three.
