Teams and Players Breakdown
If you are not fully aware of the VALORANT or esports vernacular, these names could be a little overwhelming at first. More importantly, though, there are four professional VALORATN teams already participating, although their members are playing across different rosters for the sake of balance.
Team SoloMid, an esports franchise worth $225 million, is fielding all six members. TSM are joined by T1, the South Korean esports powerhouse which is also adding a VALORANT outfit even though the game is in a closed beta.
NRG Esports are fielding KingRichard and LuluLuvely. Sentinels, a fairly new squad, will join Team sYnceDez with retzi and zombs. Counter Logic Gaming have a lone wolf in the game, with missharvey supporting Team bnans’ efforts.
Not the First Tournament in Town
Earlier this week we saw two tournaments. Lifestyle and esports brand 100 Thieves hosted theirs on Tuesday. The event pulled in 443,637 peak viewers and clocked nearly 3M hours watched in an eight-hour streaming marathon.
The most recent tournament took place, Thursday, April 16, with Esports Charts still processing the viewership data as of the writing this piece. VALORANT is still not a game you can bet on, with sportsbooks haven’t taken the liberty of introducing arbitrary odds
