Taking Logitech G Valorant Pacific Open+ and Valorant First Strike Malaysia/Singapore into account, fans have been treated endlessly with a slew of Valorant esports events, with the Valorant Challengers Malaysia & Singapore continuing the tradition.
The Valorant Challengers Malaysia & Singapore comprises three tournaments (labelled as Weeks) spanning six weeks, with a RM40,000 prize pool on the line. Each Week will begin with the open qualifiers, which adopt a best-of-one match format that will determine the top 8 teams to advance to the main event weekend; the quarter- and semi-finals feature best-of-three matches, followed by a best-of-five finals that will grant winners entry to the next Challengers event. But beware, this is a single-elimination tournament, which means that teams are out of the running when they lose a match.
The Stage 1 Week 1 open qualifiers took place last Friday (30 January), and the top 8 teams have been decided to compete in the main event weekend. Here are the confirmed teams of Valorant Challengers Malaysia & Singapore Stage 1 Week 1:
- Reality Rift
- Team SMG
- Timing Monster Gaming
- Looking for Org
All maps will be available throughout the series, which include Bind, Haven, Split, Ascent and Icebox. Teams will select which map to be their arena at the beginning of the round. And if you happen to be a newly-converted Yoru main, worry not, because every Agent can be used during the Valorant Challengers series.
However, if you and your buddies are looking to participate, registration for the Stage 1 Week 2 open qualifiers of Valorant Challengers Malaysia & Singapore is open until 14 February. Interested parties can register here, and be sure to read the rules.
The Valorant Challengers is the first phase of the Valorant Champions Tour 2021, a season-long competition tour set to take place throughout the year for Asia, North America, South America, Europe and Australia.
