The VCT Champions 2022 grand final on Sunday saw LOUD and OpTic square off for the fifth time this year, bringing the ultimate VALORANT rivalry of the 2022 VCT season to a dramatic climax.

The series began at the location of LOUD’s stunningly convincing triumph in the winner’s final, Ascent. OpTic took charge once the buy rounds started on defense, peeking early to thwart LOUD’s executes, and then retreated to safe, deep angles. This time, though, they appeared to be much more capable. With a 7-5 advantage at the half, thanks to aggressive Marved lurks and yay’s opening duels, OpTic’s defense was fully showcased.

LOUD claimed the pistol, anti-eco, and the bonus round to open the second half, giving the impression that they had an equally strong attack side. After an OpTic timeout, LOUD appeared ready to put OpTic through its paces with a crazy 1v3 clutch from aspas. However, a few brave peeks from crashies allowed OpTic to win the 11th and 12th rounds before tying the series on Bind with a 13-6 victory in the following round.

Thanks to additional valiant efforts from crashies and yeah, OpTic maintained their momentum in Breeze, beginning their defensive side with four straight rounds. After a timeout, LOUD came back and won four of the following five rounds, with Saadhak stepping up on the KAY/O and Aspas giving his best Yay impersonation with the Operator on Jett. OpTic had a 5-1 lead at the interval, but LOUD and OpTic were even at 6-6.

As the game remained back-and-forth in the second half, no team could break ahead, resulting in an 11-11 stalemate. OpTic took the initiative early, forcing LOUD into a 3v4 retake that was stopped by yay’s Operator and taking the B site with great execution. Aspas came back with the Operator himself, landing a huge triple on Jett to force overtime. LOUD eventually won their second map in the series in extra rounds, 16-14, after three overtime periods.

LOUD got a strong defensive start against Haven after winning their second game in OT this series. OpTic nevertheless had some success, only behind 5-7 at the break. However, LOUD put OpTic under a lot of strain by decisively winning the second half of the pistol round, the anti-eco, and the bonus to go up 10-5 in what may be a crucial map. Haven was defeated 13-5 as LOUD continued to press forward, playing flawlessly in the second half to win the map, the series, and the world championship.

At the ideal time, LOUD finally exacted revenge on Optic and won the second-ever VALORANT world championship. In addition, LOUD wins the first-ever international trophy for Brazil and made history as the first team from a region other than North America or Europe to do so.

VCT Champions 2022 Finals Broke Valorant Viewership Record

While some fans left dismayed because of the buffering issues on the first half of the Valorant Champions 2022, that didn’t stop the fans from watching all the final action. OpTic Gaming and LOUD square off once more in the VCT Champions 2022 grand final, and the conclusion to this year’s most heated VALORANT rivalry quickly broke the peak viewer record.

After LOUD won map one on Ascent in overtime, the grand final has already drawn more than 1.4 million concurrent spectators across official broadcasts and co-streams during just map two. The concurrent viewership for Champions 2021 and both Masters Reykjavk tournaments is much below the current top figure. According to data on Esports Charts, each exceeded one million concurrent viewers but did not go higher than 1.1 million.

The main English feed on Twitch attracted more than a quarter of a million people to the Champions 2022 championship match. The Tarik co-stream, the official Twitch and YouTube broadcasts in Portuguese, the English YouTube stream, and the official Japanese broadcast and co-stream by fps shaka are among the other popular streams in terms of spectators.

Valorant Champions 2022 has now eclipsed the record for total hours watched set during the lower bracket final the day before, making it the most watched VALORANT and VCT event ever. Additionally, approximately 500K viewers watched the event on average throughout more than 112 hours of airtime.

With this final versus LOUD, the Reykjavik 2022 final versus LOUD, and the Champions 2022 lower final versus DRX, OpTic is now the only VALORANT team to have three distinct matches to exceed one million concurrent views.
