Acend vs Team Envy Match Rescheduled.
Riot Games announced earlier that they had awarded Vivo Keyd’s Map 3 victory to Acend. It was due to the team’s well-known Cypher camera on Breeze.
The decision was viewed negatively, particularly among those in the Brazilian community, who posted on social media to express their anger.
Within a couple of seconds following the time Riot Games announced their decision, the community began to show that they supported Vivo Keyd.
They began tweeting about the hashtag #justiceforkeyd. The hashtag later became the 5th highest prevalent issue on Twitter.
The users retweeted the hashtag to grab Riot Games’ attention as Acend. Team Envy’s Winners’ Game game was scheduled to begin in only an hour.
With the help of the fans and other VALORANT individuals on the internet, Riot Games further deliberated the decision. They said they would revisit the decision.
That means Acend and Team Envy’s match will be canceled temporarily so that they can decide whether Vivo Keyd can reclaim their place in the winning game.
Instead, group B’s Winners’ Game will be scheduled to be the first game of the day. They will play it with an hour delay to make up for the sudden shift in the schedule.
Vivo Keyd’s supporters argue that their decision to disqualify their win in Map 3 was not solely the team’s fault.
Instead, they claim that Riot Games’ referees and Acend themselves didn’t intervene to stop the match for the entire six rounds in which they utilized the technique.
Additionally, the criminal exploit has been in use for a couple of months. Unfortunately, the VALORANT team did not fix or patch it, even though the tournament was rapidly coming.
However, VALORANT Champion Tour’s Competitive Policy clarifies that teams aren’t allowed to exploit illegally of any type.
Riot Games has yet to give a specific date on the announcement. However, fans can be sure to hear about it before Vivo Keyd’s game against X10 Crit on the next day.
