Rix.GG shares 44% of Huntress Trials VALORANT players are Immortal
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Rix.GG , a top UK esports organisation, shares 44% of players in the Huntress Trials April tournament were Immortal during April of the current act.

The data collected has had all private information removed and is taken from all 83 players signed-up to participate which includes team substitutes. Rix.GG hopes that sharing this data can help to dispel myths and misconceptions about the skill level and ranks of female and marginalised gender VALORANT players in the EU.

Here are some key stats:

  • 1.2% of players are Radiant

  • 44.6% of players are Immortal

    • Immortal players had an average of 110 RR

  • 38.6% of players are Diamond

    • 10 players are D3

    • 14 players are D2

    • 8 players are D1

  • 13.2% of players are Platinum

  • 2.4% of players are below Platinum

 

But, you might be wondering, how does the Huntress Trials data to rank distribution compare to all player data?

The percentage of players by tier from data collected by Esportstales shows that only 0.1% of all players are Radiant, and 1.1% are Immortal. This means the top 38 (1 Radiant and 37 Immortal) players from the Huntress tournament are in the top 1.2% of all players (Immortal plus Radiant). When combining the ranks from Diamond to Radiant, this accounts for about 84% of the Huntress Trials tournament player base, which is in the top 5% of all VALORANT players.

Nicole “Wolf” Sølvmose, Head of Esports Inclusion, said: “It is no longer a secret that nearly 50% of all people in the world who game are females and marginalised genders, but where a lot of misconception and stereotypical thinking lies, is whether females and marginalised genders are capable at being good at the game they play. But, are they so good that they can take upon professional Esport athlete careers? The answer is simple, yes they are, and yes, they can. Gender identity is not a blockade for skills in video games, just looking at our statistics gathered above, it is clear that this barrier of misconception and stereotypical thoughts between genders in Esports, no longer is and never has been applicable to gaming.”

Jorden “Raen” Dakin-White, Head of PR and Content, said: “Remove gender and the bottom line from these findings is, the vast majority of players in our Huntress Trials tournaments are in the top 5% of all VALORANT players. This is significant and these players are exceptional esports athletes.

For every player we have in our tournaments, there’s always more out there as shown by the growth of our player base over just three events. We hope that by hosting more events new players enter the scene, more players can have a full-time career within esports, and fully integrated teams become the norm.”

In the closed qualifier 4 teams will face double elimination, where the winning team will advance to the main stage.

We’re thrilled to announce the return of three long-term partners for the LEC 2022 season.

As we prepare for the start of LEC Spring 2022, we’ve been working with our partners to ensure that we offer the best possible viewing experience for our fans around the world. Today, we’re proud to announce that three of our long-term partners will be returning to support the 2022 season.

The first of these partnerships is our Official Energy Drink Supplier, Red Bull. This will be our fourth consecutive year working with Red Bull and we can’t wait to build on our partnership throughout the year.

Red Bull will excite the LEC followership by creating content activations that will appear throughout LEC events and also promoting grassroots LoL esports over the next 12 months. Further, Red Bull Solo Q, the official 1v1 League of Legends tournament, in which fans can compete against each other, is returning for 2022.

Next, we are ecstatic to confirm that Warner Music will once again be joining us as an Official Music Partner for 2022. Over the four years we’ve been working with Warner, they’ve introduced some truly amazing artists to LEC fans and we can’t wait to see what they’ve got in store for the year ahead.

Warner Music was instrumental in powering the 2022 LEC promotional video with Chrissy Constanza, and will be bringing a similar calibre of talent to LEC content going forward.

Finally, we’re excited to confirm that Secretlab will be returning for a multi-year partnership as the Official Gaming Chair Partner for the LEC and EU Masters! From chairs inspired by K/DA’s music releases and the Ruination event to the premiere of Arcane on Netflix, Secretlab has been a constant in the League of Legends universe, celebrating major League milestones since 2019. As the Official Gaming Chair at regional leagues and global tournaments including the World Championship, the Mid-Season Invitational, and All-Star, esports teams have gotten familiar with Secretlab chairs and we’re delighted to have them return to support the LEC for the third year running with the new Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022.

Additionally, the exclusive Secretlab x League of Legends Tilted emote that was first dropped during Worlds 2021 will be making its return during LEC 2022 – stay tuned to Secretlab’s social media pages to find out how you can get yours.

“LEC has constantly kept us on the edge of our seats with mind blowing plays each year. With the induction of increasingly younger talents across the league, following an action-packed year which made LEC 2021 the most watched season of all time, we’re expecting even more epic faceoffs in the upcoming season and the teams can count on being supported by the world’s best gaming chairs in their battle for a spot at Worlds,” says Beatrice Wee, Senior Manager, Global Partnerships, Secretlab. “There’s no compromise when it comes to equipping Europe’s best.”

With these amazing partners alongside us, we can’t wait for what will no doubt be the most exciting year of LEC action yet. Will MAD Lions continue their reign at the top, or will old favourites G2 Esports or Fnatic rise back to the top spot with their refreshed rosters?

Welcome to the Gambit family, EXMO!” Konstantin Pikiner, Sports Director of Gambit Esports, said.
