The Valorant Conquerors Championship has finally come to an end with Global Esports winning the Grand Finals over their regional counterparts Velocity gaming.

At the end of May, Riot had announced its collaboration with Nodwin Gaming to give the South Asian region its first-ever official Championship event and to be a part of the Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) Circuit.

VCC had a wide variety of agent compositions but it seems that South Asia’s top teams figured out which agents work best in the current meta and didn’t deviate from the formula very far. This left Jett as the unsurprising top choice throughout the competition. The break-free operator had an 84% overall pick rate and was chosen across the 38 maps played during the main event. Jett was mostly stunned by Ganesh “SkRossi” Gangadhar (Global Esports) and Mohit “mw1” Wakle (Velocity Gaming) with over 348 and 303 rounds played respectively.  

Sova was the second favorite agent amongst top players. The arrow-wielding agent had a 70% pick rate thanks to top players like Tejas “rite2ace” Sawant, Akshay “KappA” Sinkar, and Tasawf “Hermione” Zami who made the most use of the agent across their journey in the main event

Whereas, Killjoy has been ruled as the third topmost selected agent in the VCC with the likes of Jayanth “skillZ” Ramesh (Global Esports), Vibhor “Vibhor” Vaid (Velocity gaming), and Agneya “Marzil” Kaushik fielding the said Sentinel across 156, 108 and 95 rounds respectively. 

The fourth highest pick rate belongs to Astra, the controller from Ghana. Despite the nerfs with her addition to the roster, she has undoubtedly been the most preferred agent to be picked at the Valorant Conquerors Championship. Team Exceeli’s Protagonist recorded the highest ACS with Astra at VCC.

The fifth and final agent to have been most picked at the VCC was none other than Viper. With a pick rate of 39%, Viper is holding her own in the meta right now, providing a very solid wall option for almost any comp. She’s particularly effective on Bind, where she can use her utility to clear out chokepoints with ease.

The Conquerors Championship event win led Global Esports to the APAC Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ), a final passage towards the VCT Champions event, to be held later in 2021. VCC is a framework of the VCT Circuit which would further help teams from the South Asian region make an impact alongside the other teams from across the globe. Initially, Nodwin in a press release stated that VCC will feature a prize pool of 25 Lakhs INR ($33,700 USD approx), of which Global Esports were rewarded with the lion’s share of $16,500 USD and a spot at the APAC LCQ.
