Global Esports failed to pull out victory on their very first match of VCT Apac challengers 2022. Griffen Esports from Hongkong effortlessly defeated Global Esports with a 2-0 score. Fracture was banned by Global Esports in the first two Vetos, whereas Breeze was banned by Griffin. Griffin later chose Icebox, while GE chose Haven. Surprisingly, GE banned Split, which is considered one of their greatest maps, in the second veto. Griffin, on the other hand, took out Ascent, allowing Bind to make the final decision.VCT APAC Challengers 2022
Griffin dominated the opening match, which ended with a score of 8-2. In addition, Global won two rounds to make the score 8-2. However, it was not enough, as the team was defeated 13-6. Griffin got out to a strong start on the second map, leading 7-5 at the changeover. GE was able to equal that and went on to win 12-9. GE tried yet again to tie it up, but Griffin outplayed GE in the 12-11 round to seal the tie.
After coming second in the Valorant Conquerors Championship (VCC) 2022, Global Esports qualified for the APAC Stage 1 Challengers Play-Ins. Griffin Esports came in second place in the Stage 1 Challengers in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Global Esports were the odds-on favourites in this match, but Griffin Esports stunned them with their unorthodox gameplay. To confound their opponents, the Hong Kong team prefered to switch around their Agent compositions. Griffin Esports flipped the tables with today’s gameplay of guys like SiuFatBB and Attention on the team.
Global esports’ next match will be against Fancy United in the lower bracket on March 12th. The encounter will be a do-or-die situation for the South Asian squad, and they will need to win it to stay in the competition. From 06:00 PM, the match will be aired live on the Valorant Champions Tour’s and Nodwin Gaming official Youtube account.
