XSET secured their first international victory at VALORANT Champions 2022 after a very close and feisty match against SEA team XERXIA.
The match was never a runaway on either of the two maps they played today. The two teams were well-matched, and every round posed a question mark. Fans were treated to tense and nail-biting viewing throughout the entire game as they exchanged rounds back and forth.
Although the match was very close, XSET took both maps and ended the match 2-0 against XERXIA. This is XSET’s second international appearance and XERXIA’s third.
while VALORANT can be known for its aggressive fraggers and quick-paced action, this game had several moments where patience was key. Players waited to fire on at least three separate occasions while an enemy agent looked elsewhere.
The first was Itthirit “foxz” Ngamsaard in one of the longest shows of patience. Zachary “zekken” Patrone held an angle approaching A site but failed to check his corners. foxz was there waiting for him, and about 20 seconds went by before Rory “dephh” Jackson joined him, and foxz finally revealed himself in the form of a shower of deadly bullets onto the XSET players. Even though it looked bad for XSET, they still managed to win the round, eventually winning the first map on Fracture.
