Last VALORANT Ignition Series
Riot Games worked with third-party esports event organizers to help grow the VALORANT esports scene. The past VALORANT events like WePlay! VALORANT Invitational, PAX Arena VALORANT Invitational and FaZe Clan VALORANT Invitational saw huge success. An interview with Riot Games Head of North American Esports Partnerships and Business Development, Matt Archambault, showcased how much the company wants other brands to get involved.
Being the last VALORANT Ignition Series tournament, fans hold high expectations for this one. B Site’s Twitch channel will primarily host the event for viewers. Although the VALORANT esports scene is just getting started, current success leads the community to believe Riot Games can pull this off. With a developed esports scene for League of Legends, VALORANT Pop Flash will surely grow the community.
