Map 1 – Bind
The final ticket of the APAC region to the Valorant Champions 2022 tournament – Istanbul has been determined.
A day of flying competition for BerserX. The main duelist of BOOM Esports showed extremely high performance in the Grand Final and greatly contributed to BOOM’s 3 – 1 overall victory over his compatriot.
In game 1, BOOM Esports showed the opponent why they picked this Bind map. Despite only having a modest win rate of 58%, BOOM still played extremely well and controlled the map better than ONIC G.
The ability to fly and absorb bullets of the Raze card in the hand of Famous creates a huge premise for teammates like blaZek1ng or BerserX to have lives, which ONIC does not do well. The Chamber card in severiNe’s hand is not enough to pull back the map when this agent only works well on the defensive side.
After losing 10-13 on map 1, ONIC G continued to lose 14-12 on his map pick Haven. In both the first two games, NcSlasher played very underpowered and constantly had situations where he had to shoot errors that were not worth it. Although he saved the match point and dragged the series to overtime, a series of personal mistakes, especially the situation of Lmemore’s movement error and severiNe’s very bad front shot, caused ONIC G to fail.
Being cornered, it seemed that ONIC had really given up when it came to the opponent’s map pick, but the hedgehogs were still undeterred.
Both teams chased the score with great tension, the problem of BME’s anti-eco was revealed quite clearly when there were many situations of losing eco and force buying in important rounds. Although the wolves were the ones who reached the number 11 first, in the end it was the Hedgehogs who were able to finish the map when they won the last 3 rounds and got the final score of 13-11.
A somewhat reckless map pick of ONIC when their opponent, BOOM Esports is also extremely strong on this map.
What’s quite interesting is that despite using a formation with 3 Guardians and no duelist, BME does very badly on the defensive side and really only explodes on the offensive side. The Chamber Ops in the hands of BerserX on the defensive side were extremely inaccurate despite being pre-ordered, but when the star on the BME side brought a sniper rifle to attack, there were continuously unbelievable shooting situations.
Similar to fl1pzjder, although it does not show much on the defensive side, as soon as it changes sides to attack, the KJ card on the BME side begins to exert its power with extremely sensitive mechanical or hook situations. .
Once again reaching 11 but once again, ONIC G let the opponent get to 13 first.
The final result 3 – 1 of the Grand Final with the scores 13 – 10, 14 – 12, 11 – 13 and 13 – 11 respectively in favor of BOOM helped the team from Indonesia win the final ticket of the region. APAC, together with Paper Rex and XERXIA come to Istanbul next September.
