TSM vs Gen.G VCT match hit with Valorant 90-minute server glitch

The match between two of NA's biggest Valorant squads had to face a server restart during a crucial game 2.
It seems Riot Games has yet to address one of Valorant's most egregious issues that affect competitive play -- the infamous 90-minute server glitch, which recently forced the match between TSM and Gen.G to be delayed, restarting the game on a new custom server.

This glitch makes it so a custom match can't last over 90 minutes regardless of results, with the game shutting down automatically, no matter what's currently happening in-game, a huge inconvenience for pro play, affecting the competitive scene on more than one occasion.

During the VCT Stage 3 Challengers 2 match between TSM and Gen.G, a close game 2 on Split had to be halted by a technical pause as a result of this massive inconvenience, as both teams found themselves tied with a ridiculous score of 20-20.

Luckily, this time it didn't happen in the middle of a decisive play, as both teams found themselves in the buy phase of their never-ending OT, making things go slightly smoother. That said, plenty of fans who tuned out to watch other VCT matches were left puzzled once they saw the scoreboard be reset, wondering if they had missed a TSM win that forced a map 3 to be played.

In the end, TSM would eventually take map 2 and recover from a 0-7 deficit on Icebox to close out the series, putting Gen.G in the lower bracket of the closed qualifier.
