The winner of the playoff will be going up against HydraFlick.
“We have always aimed to empower gaming enthusiasts and creators with the best personal experience when it comes to gaming.

HydraFlick will be playing on Asus’ recently launched ASUS ROG Strix Scar laptop. The total cash prize pool is Rs 1,75,000. The winner of the tournament will win a cash prize of Rs 1,00,000. The winner of the playoff will get Rs 50,000 whereas the runner-up will get Rs 25,000.

In order to register for the tournament, the teams will be required to fill in their team name, team hashtag, upload team logo (optional) and country (valid for Sri Lanka and Bangladesh as well). This will be followed by providing the name of the team captain along with phone number, email id, Valorant ID, Discord ID, and other information about all five players.
