Either Talon Esports or Global Esports will earn their first victory in this match-up. The journey of Talon Esports thus far has been surprisingly tumultuous, especially when considering their strong performance early on at VCT LOCK//IN two months ago. Much was expected from Talon at the start of the tournament, but unfortunately, the Thai squad was unable to secure wins against Team Secret, T1, and DRX, causing some to question the high expectations set early on. Currently, Talon Esports find themselves in a dangerous situation, and this week’s match is crucial for them to turn things around.
On the other hand, although Global Esports are also at 0-3, their path has been more convincing in comparison. Cahya “Monyet” Nugraha has never looked better in the squad, which may be a sign of a brighter future for the international roster. The Indonesian has played a huge part in GE’s two near victories against DRX and ZETA DIVISION, with Park “Bazzi” Jun-ki hot on his heels as the second-highest.
However, it remains uncertain whether this current roster composition will be maintained for Week 4, as Ganesh “SkRossi” Gangadhar has arrived in South Korea since last week. It would make sense for him to return to the active roster as soon as he adjusts to the environment, although raises questions about GE’s potential caliber once more. In a scenario where SkRossi returns to the active roster of Global Esports, he can add an element of surprise – although this could potentially backfire – as they attempt to take down Talon Esports, who have had a shaky showing thus far.
Overall, GE-TLN has great potential to be close games filled with good VALORANT, so make sure to tune in today.
