The VALORANT Tournament: One is the very first VALORANT tournament organized by KJC eSports. It is an officially-approved by Riot Games event, and was participated by teams of all tiers from all over Southeast Asia, with a prize pool of USD850.

Our team was the organizer of the tournament, and we have done all the work for making the tournament a success. We did the League Operations, Broadcast Solutions and Marketing/Promotion & Assets Production.

League Operations

The registration for the tournament was mainly promoted on Facebook, which ultimately lead to over 400 teams from all over Southeast Asia registering. Our team has made the guidelines, event rundown and rulebook. After confirming the 64 teams to participate, we have opted to use Discord as our main communication tool with all the teams with 2 main administrators throughout the tournament.

Broadcast Solutions

The tournament was from 21 to 26 June, 2021, and the 21st being a non-streamed Round-of-64, Round-of-32 and Round-of-16, simultaneous, games. Quarter-Finals (Best-of-Ones) to Semi-Finals (Best-of-Threes), were from the 22nd to the 25th, and were streamed from 9:00PM (GMT+8). The Grand Finals, on the 26th, a Best-of-Five, was streamed from 3:00pm (GMT+8).

Marketing & Promotion/Assets Production

Our media team (graphic designer and video editor) created assets for before (e.g. trailers and countdowns), during (e.g. match results, updated brackets, etc.), and after (e.g. highlights and giveaway winners) the tournament, including the overlays. The event was also covered by ABS-CBN, Inquirer, Manila Standard, AFK Gaming and VALO2ASIA.

The marketing & promotional materials were also shared/posted by our team throughout our own social media channels/pages, and Discord servers; our main servers and VALORANT-related servers used by many players & teams in the scene. KJC eSports was also given special roles in some Discord servers, which allowed us to promote the event.
