According to the latest census by vrl.gg, Velocity Gaming are by far one of the most successful Valorant teams in the region.

When comparing them to the top Valorant teams of both EU and NA, Velocity Gaming doesn’t seem to be all that far off.

In NA, Sentinels have overtaken TSM and are sitting with a rating of 1950, with the former having a rating of 1852. The most dominant team of EU, G2 Esports, on the other hand, are sitting first with a rating of 2013.

Hence if we consider the ratings, Velocity Gaming doesn’t only boast the capability of making it to the top in just the Asia-Pacific region, but internationally as well.

Ever since the esports organization, Velocity Gaming, took the Team Vertigo roster under their wings, Indian Valorant fans have had very high expectations from them.

And we won’t be lying when we say that the super squad have made good on every promise. When it comes to the Indian Valorant tournaments, hosted by The Esports Club, Aorus South Asia, and NODWIN Gaming, Velocity Gaming have been steamrolling through the competition.

They have been stomping the opposition all through the tournament and making the finals look like a very one-sided affair.

Under the leadership and shot-calling of Anuj ‘ameterasu’ Sharma, Velocity gaming are slowly gaining the reputation of being one of the best Valorant teams in Asia Pacific.

Boasting talents such as Tejas ‘rite2ace’ Sawant, Karan ‘excali’ Mhaswadkar, Sabyasachi ‘antidote’ Bose, and Vibhor ‘Vibhor’ Vaid, the roster is set to achieve great heights once the Indian Valorant esports scene finally takes off.
