In the Kia Forum venue in Los Angeles, United States, in front of a roaring crowd, the playoffs of Valornat Champions 2023 came to a thrilling conclusion.

We saw Paper Rex take down FUT Esports with a relatively clean 2-0, then scored a 2-1 victory against LOUD, the previous world champions. Paper Rex then went on to reverse-sweep Evil Geniuses in front of the US crowd to make it to the grand finals of Valorant Champions 2023.

Evil Geniuses reverse-sweep EDward Gaming 2-1 in the first round of the playoffs, then beat DRX 2-0 before falling to the lower bracket against Paper Rex as mentioned previously. EG then made a fantastic comeback in the lower-bracket final to beat Brazillian powerhouse LOUD 3-2 to make it to the grand finals.

In the grand finals of Valorant Champions 2023, Evil Geniuses started on the right foot, beating Paper Rex 13-10 on Split. Paper Rex then retaliated on Ascent with a 13-11 win. However, as the crowd chanted “USA, USA, USA!” Evil Geniuses could not be denied, winning Bind 13-5 and Lotus 13-10 to claim victory.

A big congratulations go out to Evil Geniuses for decimating the competition and becoming the Valorant world champions! EG is the first North American team to win a Valorant Champions and did so with style.
