The Issue of Valorant Off-Season
Before we get into the details, you will need to know the context that might be the reason for the 40+ tournaments. Last month, Esports organizations, like FaZe Clan, decided to drop their rosters due to the lack of activity in the scene. There just weren’t enough tournaments to support the players in the participating organizations.
This led to popular streamer Ludwig calling out Valorant Heads for not having enough tournaments for the Off-Season. Since VCT Champions will end this month, there wasn’t anything to fill the gap between the two seasons. Since then, Riot Games decided to listen to the players and do what’s best for them.
Now, Riot created over 40+ tournaments for everyone to enjoy during the gap. These include events in all three regions, namely: the Americas, EMEA, and the Pacific. Yet, these aren’t just official matches. They also include online shows and different LAN tournaments sanctioned by Riot Games.
Although they wanted to announce it on August 15, the full list of tournaments for the Valorant Off-Season went live as soon as possible. It will be the first of many announcements of the VCT Off//Season.
