Riot Games have been fully committed to elevating the esports community’s experience, further evidenced by their latest endeavour to partner with Esports Fight Club (EFC), a worldwide esports & tournament organization platform, for the international Valorant Champions Tour (VCT 2021), particularly the Southeast Asian region.
As the official esports platform for VCT 2021’s regionals, the Valorant Challengers, EFC will be producing customised rewards to incentivize viewers and participants to take part in its activities, including redeemable in-game currency, in-game items, and exclusive physical merchandise – all in the name of improving the experience of the Valorant SEA esports community. To prevent fraud from bots and artificial traffic, EFC will be utilising the “Proof of View” technology to ensure up-to-the-numbers viewership.
Of course, this is just one of several efforts by EFC to improve user experience, with tournament management, content and broadcasting in the works as well. The entire initiative is a holistic one, with EFC working with officially licensed operations of each country, such as The Gaming Company (Malaysia and Singapore), Mineski Global (the Philippines), ESL Asia (Thailand), and 1UP Gaming (Indonesia), to bring this to life.
The Valorant Challengers kicked off in February, with the top teams of each region’s tiered tournament qualifying for the international Valorant Masters 2021 to face off against other top dogs from other regions. Teams will battle for points to progress to Valorant Champions, with the world’s top 16 teams competing for the first-ever Valorant global champions title.
Registration for Stage 3 of the Valorant Challengers begins early next month (July) across Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand.
