India played host to the Valorant India Invitational at the GMR Area in Hyderabad, concluding with Team Paper Rex clinching the championship. Despite the tournament being the first international event for India, the former never got off to a promising start right from the beginning.
There were multiple issues addressed from Day 1 of the tournament itself with a prolonged delay having marred the start times of several match-ups, lined up as the players were kept waiting for a considerable amount of time.
As reported earlier, in a span of five hours at the venue, only one of the eight games was played on the main stage. It was Rahul “Emi” Hinduja of Global Esports who first reported the discomfort.
