Valor Cup Season 3 Grand Finals saw the top 4 teams in the server battling it out in jaw-clenching matches. The top 4 teams in the Grand Finals consisted of long-term rivals Resurgence from Malaysia and Tamago from Singapore, and first-timers Bren Esports and MaxBox Gaming from the Philippines.

In a Best-of-5 semifinals, Tamago defeated Bren Esports 3 to 1 after a long and intense 30-minute match. Meanwhile, Maxbox Gaming also conquered Malaysian Team Resurgence by the same scoreline. Both Tamago and MaxBox Gaming secured their spots in the Finals with only one loss under their belts.
