So we had the first-ever game with an Indian team going up against SEA teams on the Mumbai server.
VLT vs Bleed, VLT and GE both are looking shaky right now. Despite this VLT secured a dominating win (13-3) over bleed. Should I mention that VLT was playing without their IGL cause he is taking rest for RSI.
The rest of the two maps will be played on the Singapore server, so honestly, it could go either way. The thing I was surprised to see was players like DM and the rest of the squad were actually hitting their shots which was non-existent earlier. India basically lost most of the gunfights despite decent util.
Its still one game and I would like to wait a bit more before arriving at proper conclusions but this should actually be taken seriously by riot when they plan VCT 2022. Even a ping difference of 40ms is huge when it comes to pro play. Instead we, unfortunately, got to see SA playing at 70 ping in Mumbai vs 5-10 ping in Singapore and for TE it was even worse at 100+ms ping.
PS - Kinda sad that Bleed (Ex UwU) lost tho. Maybe they lost the name buff.
Edit: Just look at the thrifties from VLT. That shows how much better VLT was, tactically speaking.
