Riot Games has huge plans for its hit new FPS game Valorant on an international scale. The Valorant First Strike tournament series will kick off the competitive scene all over the world with events across Southeast Asia, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. Even students will get a chance to shoot for glory as Riot has announced there will be sanctioned collegiate circuits alongside the professional circuits.
Mineski Events Team, alongside Riot Games, will be holding one of the first big tournaments in the region with Mineski V x V. The tournament, which can accommodate up to Filipino 128 teams, boasts a whopping US$10,000 USD prize pool and begins in early November and will run until December. When Mineski V x V reaches the final stages of the tournament, it will officially be called First Strike under Riot Games. Registrations are open until October 28. To see if you are eligible to join, the rules are available for viewing.
While the Mineski Events Team is holding the Philippine leg of First Strike, Riot has partnered with multiple organizers in Southeast Asia to bring Valorant tournaments to as many people as possible.
