Stage 3 of Valorant Challengers for the Southeast Asia (SEA) region is just a few weeks away and this time Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) 2021 has partnered with Esports Fight Club (EFC) as their official esports platform for the region. Esports Fight Club is a Verasity company based in the British Virgin Islands that hosts various gaming tournaments for titles such as PUBG Mobile, Free Fire, Valorant, CS:GO, Dota 2, and PUBG. They will be hosting all the Valorant Challengers matches for Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines for the upcoming Stage 3 of the VCT 2021, registrations for which are scheduled to start from early July 2021.
Esports Fight Club will be hosting Valorant matches for all the licensed VCT 2021 operators in the SEA region - The Gaming Company (TGC) for Malaysia and Singapore, Mineski Global for the Philippines, ESL Asia for Thailand, and 1UP Gaming for Indonesia.
EFC is also partnering with the region’s organizers to provide them full support in the form of tournament management, content, and broadcasting.
This is because EFC is looking to improve the existing user experience for viewers by delivering them custom rewards such as in-game credit codes, cosmetic items, and even physical memorabilia, all of which can be redeemed in exchange for engagement. They plan on doing so by using the patented technology known as ‘Proof-of-View’, which effectively eliminates fraud from bots and non-human traffic, ensuring accurate human viewership.
The Founder and CEO of Esports Fight Club and Verasity - RJ Mark says that “This partnership is an exciting step forward for gaming. We have many natural synergies across this partnership with VCT and together we can springboard gaming in terms of technology and adoption. We are really excited to be part of VCT in Southeast Asia and Esports Fight Club is focused on providing the ultimate engagement experience through rewards and Proof of View.”
The VCT 2021 for the SEA region has been going great so far with the Thai esports organization X10 Esports dominating both Stage 1 and Stage 2 Masters. They were the SEA representative who managed to qualify for the first-ever Valorant LAN tournament VCT 2021: Stage 2 Masters - Reykjavík, where they finished at the 7th-8th position after defeating the Japanese team Crazy Raccoon.
It will be interesting to see what the region has to offer moving in the upcoming Stage 3. Do X10 Esports continue to dominate or does a new challenger await to dethrone them, making their way to Berlin later this year!
