 Mansoor 'Nabu' Ahmed, Head of Operations & Tournament Director of The Esports Club says, "As a former Overwatch & League of Legends pro player I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the Valorant Esports Landscape in India. Riot knows how to build an esports ecosystem and they’ve done a phenomenal job with the game so soon after launch. This event is just the first stepping stone in our journey with Valorant in India."

Ishaan Arya, Co-Founder of The Esports Club says, "We are overwhelmed with the response from the community. Nearly 1000 players signed up within the first 6 hours of the announcement and we fully expect to cross our maximum team threshold. The response helps reinforce our belief of helping spread the prize pool amongst as many players as possible; something you will see across all our esports activities."

The game had 148.7 million hours watched on twitch during closed beta first week but now it has 18.2 million hours watched on twitch in the first week since the official launch. The recent patch notes detailed a big nerf for Sage. However, TenZ, Freakazoid, Scream are some notable names that believe the future of the game is bright.
