South Asia’s leading esports company NODWIN Gaming and the global leaders in game development and publishing Riot Games have joined forces to roll out the VALORANT Conquerors Championship as the qualifying tournament for the APAC Last Chance Qualifiers as part of the 2021 VALORANT Champions Tour. Teams will compete in multiple sub-regional qualifiers for a prize pool of INR 25 Lacs (33,000 USD) in the South Asian leg. Registrations will start from 15 June onwards.

VALORANT’s instant success paved the way for multiple grassroots level tournaments in the region, driving the idea for a robust and inclusive tournament in the form of the VALORANT Champions Tour. With South Asia serving as a rapidly growing hub of VALORANT esports, its fans desired a path to the global esports circuit. The tournament is aimed at providing the much-needed gateway to international representation for the players and teams in the region. NODWIN Gaming will execute the tournament supported by the expertise of Riot Games.

“This is a great opportunity for the entire VALORANT ecosystem in South Asia to catapult itself to stardom. A representation in the Last Chance Qualifier is much deserved looking at the richness of the community and the amount of buzz it has created in the last year. We and our friends at Riot Games have worked together to build this ladder that connects South Asia to the global roadmap of VALORANT esports, that is the VCT 2021. Looking forward to a great competition.,” said Mr Akshat Rathee, MD & Co-Founder, NODWIN Gaming.

“We at Riot Games have been listening to our fanbase in South Asia and the growing demand to include the region in our VCT 2021 roadmap. This is our first step in unlocking esports for the region. We are very impressed with NODWIN Gaming’s portfolio of esports events and their support for VALORANT in the region and we have full confidence in their ability to deliver a world-class VALORANT event for our competitive players here”, said Sukamal Pegu, Publishing Leader, India & South Asia, Riot Games

The tournament will field 6 qualifiers:

  1. India
  2. Pakistan & Afghanistan
  3. Sri Lanka & Maldives
  4. Bangladesh
  5. Nepal & Bhutan
  6. Wildcard

Each qualifier will have a set number of slots filled through registrations followed by the online qualifying matches. Qualifying teams will go through the playoffs to reach the grand finals and the winner will make their way to the APAC Last Chance Qualifier where they will face qualified teams from Southeast Asia, Korea and Japan. The winner of the APAC Last Chance Qualifier will advance to the VALORANT Champions Tour, the global final where a single team will be crowned the 2021 Champion. Detailed information regarding the registration dates, tournament format, and timelines will be revealed and communicated soon.

South Asia’s Leading esports company NODWIN Gaming is all set to do the exclusive Hindi broadcast of the Asia Pacific Last Chance Qualifiers dated from 11-17 October on Nodwin’s official Youtube channel.

The APAC LCQ will play the best teams from Korea, Japan, China, Southeast Asia and South Asia in the penultimate qualifiers for the Valorant Champions Tour. The South Asia region saw an open door to the APAC LCQ through the Valorant Conquerors Championship by Nodwin Gaming that earned the winner a slot in the qualifiers for VCT. Indian team Global Esports emerged victorious and advanced to the APAC LCQ.

For the first time in PC esports history, South Asia witnessed a total peak viewership of 60K and garnered 6 million views for the whole tournament. Out of which 76.6% was for the Hindi broadcast alone. The hype and the reception for the India qualifiers and the Grand Finals were phenomenal considering the number of people tuning in to watch the matches. The Grand Finals of VCC happened to be El-Classico, the synonym for the greatest rivalry in the Indian Valorant circuit between Global Esports and Velocity Gaming. The tournament ended with Global Esports winning 3-2 in a nailbiter. From losing India Qualifier #1 to winning the title, GE won hearts and praises from all around the world. We will get to see them competing in APAC LCQ for a slot in VCT.

“APAC LCQ is taking the finest team forward and we can’t wait to see how the competition pans out. After giving a great reception for VCC, I’m sure the fans will be eager to watch the LCQ as well and what could have been better than a dedicated Hindi broadcast by Nodwin itself. Let’s make our presence felt. All the best to the lads at Global Esports, make us proud”, said Akshat Rathee, MD & Co-Founder, NODWIN Gaming.

“LCQ broadcast in Hindi is a great way to bring our community together to cheer for Global Esports, and when you have the entire region rooting for you, anything is possible! Personally, I am a big fan of Global Esport’s journey so far and I will definitely be rooting for them on the Hindi broadcast on Nodwin Gaming’s channel. Do drop by to send some luck to the boys. All excited to see some Skrossi supremacy”, said Sukamal Pegu, Publishing Leader, India & South Asia, Riot Games

The hype created from the Valorant Conquerors Championship by NODWIN Gaming solidified the region’s presence in the global map of Valorant esports and its journey in the VCT.

The exclusive Hindi broadcast is aimed at bringing a local flavour to great competition for the ardent lovers of the game and the tournament in India.
