Valorant Champions 2023 Day 4 Summary

 

The first matchup of the day was between Paper Rex and KRÜ Esports. Fans were eagerly awaiting this matchup as it was the international debut for 'Something' who missed out on Masters Tokyo due to Visa issues. The first map was Split, which was picked by KRÜ Esports. Paper Rex seemed very comfortable on Split as they led the first half 8-4. Even after losing both the pistols and anti-ecos, they managed to finish the map at 13-7. Pearl started with annihilation from Paper Rex as they led 8-0, but KRÜ managed to close the half at 4-8. And even after winning one more pistol, they could not fight back as Paper Rex took the map at 13-8 and won the series 2-0.

 

The match between Edward Gaming and Giants Gaming was a close one. The first map of Split was initially led by Giants with a 9-3 score at the half. Edward Gaming did not step back down as they managed to come back and push the match to overtime. Here, they were able to close out the match at 15-13 on their own map pick. Fit1nho had a whopping ACS of 363 on Raze, with 34 kills to his name in 28 rounds. 

 

Bind was another nail-biter with nothing separating the teams, going 6-6 at the half. Edward Gaming managed to gain an early advantage in the second half to finish the map at 13-11. The early game on Ascent was dominated by Edward Gaming with a lead of 4-0, but the Giants managed to recover only trailing by two rounds by halftime at 5-7. Edward lost the pistol and anti-eco but regained the momentum they required, closing the map at 13-8 and winning the series 2-1.

 

 

The last match of the day was the winner's bracket match for Group C where FNATIC and Bilibili Gaming went head to head.
