The Asia Pacific (APAC) region will be sending three representatives to fight for the crown at VCT Champions 2022, and Riot Games wants to help the region celebrate. After a year of regional and international tournaments, Paper Rex, XERXIA, and Boom Esports will make their names heard on the global stage.
Mark Chui, Marketing Lead, Esports of Riot Games in APAC, said, “It’s been such a huge year in VALORANT for our region. This year we saw our teams progress further than ever before on the international stage. Our APAC teams wowed audiences with their aggressive and unorthodox plays and made the world sit up and take notice.”
Mark also continued to say, “APAC teams have proven that they should not be underestimated, and we are looking forward to seeing them perform at Champions. I hope our fans will join us in cheering these teams on!”
With that goal in mind, Riot Games has organized a suite of social media content and activities for fans to enjoy on the Road to Champions from late August to early September. You’ll be enjoying music, murals, swag kits, a docu-series, and so much more.
