Lenovo played host to the Legion of Valkyrie ANZ qualifier this past weekend, where female teams from all around Australasia competed for a total of $2,000 USD and a spot in the Thailand finals held later this year. Last night saw a champion being crowned, with Justice Esports coming out on top and locking in their first ever international event as a team.
Justice Esports Active Roster:
Justice Esports kicked off their run in the Legion of Valkyrie qualifier by taking on a strong Ravens side. Justice went on to take the series after three intense maps, besting Ravens 2-1 and moving into the winners bracket. Following their opening match, Justice then went on to face “KissForTheHomies” (whitegurl and co.), where they managed to take the series in a clean sweep; ultimately securing their place in the grand final.
Justice found themselves facing up against the Ravens in the grand final, with the winner securing their trip to Bangkok, Thailand. Although with the last set between the two teams being extremely tight, it was hard to pick who would come out on top this time around. Ravens came out swinging in the series, claiming the first map of Mirage in regulation time. Nonetheless, Justice persevered in the final map to claim the series after a full thirty round match on Dust 2. Thanks to Justice having a one map advantage from coming through the upper bracket, the one map win meant they claimed the series 2-1.
Grand Final Set:
With all of that set and done, the Justice Esports roster locked in $1,000 USD for themselves, whilst also securing a trip to Bangkok, Thailand, where they will play in the Legion of Valkyries final. Justice will also have the opportunity to play alongside the best female teams from around Asia-Pacific, as well as have the opportunity to compete for $10,000 USD in prize money.
Team Captain of Justice Esports, Noogz, expressed her excitement to us by stating “I am beyond proud of the incredible achievement that my team and I have accomplished by qualifying for our first international event. Both days were intense and we displayed synergy that we never had in the team before, which was truly overwhelming to witness.”
“We have so much potential and it will only continue to improve over time. Lastly, I cannot stress enough how proud I am of the diligence and determination that surrounds my team. We will continue to keep our heads high and show the world what we’ve got,” concluded Noogz.
Australasia will have two female teams competing overseas on the same weekend, with Carnage competing against a wide variety of other female Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams at the Girl Gamer Fest in Dubai. All of the action is set to kick off on the 13th of December this year.
