Aster Army and Medal Esports’ rivalry
The opening fixture of Week 2 begins with Aster Army facing Medal Esports. Medal Esports has some unfinished business with Aster Army. It was the Grand Final of the VCL South Asia Split 1 – Open Qualifier that gave some entertaining fixtures. The thrilling last map takeover from Anaadi Army led Medal Esports to finish in the second spot of the qualifier. Anaadi Army won by 3-2 in the best-of-five-game series.
Here is what fans can expect from the Week 2 opening fixture
With the current assumptions, fans can expect an entertaining match once again in the form of a best-of-three-game series. Aster Army with its new branding will seek to win the game as it will continue its winning run. Medal Esports holds an average run record in its previous Qualifier, B-tier and C-tier tournaments. The team managed to secure 3rd position in NSG Yuddha: All India Championship and won the ROG Showdown Series Fall 2022.
Although these were played last year, the team kept that run alive in 2023. However, it was Anaadi Army in the Grand Final of the VCL South Asia Split 1 Open Qualifier that gave Medal Esports the blow. With the current form in mind, both teams look strong enough and will produce a good display in the opening fixture of VCL 2023 South Asia Split 1.
Week 2 will hold a total of six matchdays which begins today at 7:00 PM IST. Catch the live stream of the game on Nodwin Gaming’s official YouTube channel and on the Loco channel for Hindi streaming.
