VALORANT takes its first step into esports with the VALORANT Ignition Series, a series of tournaments sponsored by Riot Games.
According to a press release from the organization, it will partner with esports organizations and tournament organizers to promote and hold Riot Games sponsored competitive tournaments.
This is the company’s way of jump starting the competitive scene and also experiment with different tournament formats.
So far, the tournaments that are flying under the Ignition Series banner are G2 Esport’s invitational in Europe and Rage Esport’s tournament in Japan later this month.
There are two more tournaments that have yet to be announced that are also slated for later this month.
