When talking about the position of Indian Valorant teams compared to the other teams in SEA, and whether Indian teams can match up to the finest teams in Asia, Kashyap revealed some statistics that are certain to bring a smile to every single Indian Valorant fan out there.
In the interview, Sentinel revealed that Velocity Gaming enjoyed about a whopping 80% win-rate against the top teams in SEA region during scrims.
“We do scrims against some of the top teams in SEA region and I would say 80% of the results are positive,” the star revealed.
