The VALORANT Champions Tour APAC Last Chance Qualifier will award a wildcard entry to the VALORANT Champions to a team from the APAC region. On October 11th, 2021, the competition began with ten of the best professional teams from Korea, Southeast Asia, Japan, and India. The qualifying tournament has been going on for four days and has already eliminated four teams, one of which is Global Esports. Despite missing out on a position in VALORANT Champions, the team has surely earned the hearts of many people.
And with that, we're out of the LCQ. It was a great experience working with @GlobalEsportsIn. They showed tremendous growth over the course of these two weeks and I can't praise them enough for their hard work and dedication. Best of luck to all of the remaining teams. 🙂— Josh Abastado (@shinobi_fps) October 14, 2021
Initially, the contest between Global Esports and F4Q favored the VCC winner. With a 13-10 victory in Haven, Global Esports gained the lead in the best-of-three maps for the first time. F4Q secured the second map win on Global Esports' chosen choice Bind, with a score of 13-9, but it didn't last long.
The overall map score was now 1-1, and the team who won the third map advanced to the next round of the tournament, while the losing team was eliminated. Both teams needed a win in the third and final map of the VALORANT APAC LCQ to continue their adventure in the VALORANT APAC LCQ.
When the battle reached the match point with a score of 12-10, it appeared like the contest was totally in favor of the Indian professional side Global Esports. However, with a score of 12-12, F4Q managed to force the game into overtime for the first time.
The game between the two teams went to a third overtime period with both teams tied at 14-14. Global Esports' demise was sealed when F4Q defeated them by a score of 16-14.
The loss of Global Esports in the Lower Bracket Round 2 shocked VALORANT eSports fans and elicited numerous responses from people all across the world.
