The eSports organization is ready to tackle the Valorant competitive circuit
When Valorant came on the scene, it didn’t take long before it found success as an eSports game. It has continued to draw larger crowds and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. The latest eSports organization to get involved is eUnited, which introduced yesterday its new “eUVAL” squad.
eUnited’s new Valorant roster includes longtime competitive gamers who were formerly involved with Team Serenity. Joseph “TurnUp” Sicre, Tanner “Scourge” Klages, Antonio “Showtime” Angotti, Ryan “Eazy” Matthews, and Joseph “1j0seph” Rivera are now officially part of the organization and are ready to get their matches underway. They won’t have to wait long, as Riot Games announced yesterday that the first competitions, the Latin American Challengers series, will begin on January 26. The North American series will run from February 3-7.
Depending on how things go in the Challengers series, eUnited could then advance to the next round, the Masters series. After that, provided they are still alive, they would qualify for the Champions event. Since all Challengers competitions include an open qualifier, anything is possible at this point.
The Champions Tour will mark the first international eSports competition for Valorant since the COVID-19 saga began. The global pandemic has thrown much of the live tournament activity into turmoil, forcing many competitions to either be canceled or held virtually. Now, as it begins to look like things might be able to start returning to normal later this year, the eSports industry can begin to put everything back in order.
