The WePlay! Invitational delivered possibly the best series in VALORANT yet

20:35, 18 Jul 2020

A great fourth day of the WePlay! VALORANT Invitational concluded with the Brits from Fish123 and G2 Esports moving on to the finals. The semi-final between Ninjas in Pyjamas (NiP) and Fish123 will likely go down in VALORANT history as one of the first classic matches in this young esports. Over three maps, the teams didn't give each other an inch and took it to a thrilling quadruple overtime on the last maps with a breathtaking amount of individual highlights coming out from both sides. A definitive recommendation to catch the VOD goes out to those who have missed it.

The dramatic twists and turns in this series took were incredible. Virtually every player on the server pulled their weight, best illustrated by the fact that everyone scored over 40 kills in the series and nobody really ran away with the match individually. An unbelievable amount of huge multi-kill rounds marked the series, with mindblowing round conclusions. For additional dramatic effect, we recommend watching ScreaM's point of view alongside the mainstream.
