In a VALORANT Champions playoff match between Paper Rex and LOUD, Lotus brought the best from both teams, so much so that we saw two of the rarest occurrences in the game’s history, starting with a player making the most from going down to one health, and ending with one of the closest bomb defuse attempts possible.
Tied 3-3, a post-plant scenario came down to a 1v2 scenario for Paper Rex. The bomb was ticking, going down to the wire as LOUD successfully traded the final kill. When LOUD’s Saadhak went to defuse the bomb, he knew it would be close, and his reaction showed every moment. He could not have expected to lose the round by just 0.03 seconds, going from happiness to sadness in three percent of a second.
