The Purple Cobras team was composed of VlaDeDe, Hugstar, nixoon, fanCy, and M4CHINA.

Speaking about the win VlaDeDe, said, “I’m feeling very happy and proud of my team.

Because we played only one week together. We didn’t have a lot of practice, and we had a lot of things to change in order to fix it.”

Jamie Lewis, founder, said: “Rix.GG is continuing its commitment to grassroots esports, particularly in Valorant. It was an amazing weekend of competition that brought together teams and players of all skill levels. We’ll see you at the next one!”

The overall MVP of the Rix.GG Cup was @tul1ppp from G2G Esports, as voted by the staff at UnifyOnline and Rix.GG.
