Riot Games announces Valorant exclusive content to celebrate APAC representatives for the Valorant Champions 2022

After a gruelling year of regional and international tournaments in the VALORANT Champions Tour (“VCT”), 16 of the strongest pro teams in the world are gearing up for the VALORANT Champions 2022, the year-end finale of the VCT, where only one team will be crowned the VALORANT World Champion.

The Asia Pacific (“APAC”) region will be sending three representatives to fight for a chance to make history on the global stage. Following their historic run as the first APAC team to reach the Masters grand final, Paper Rex will hope to impress once more at the upcoming Champions 2022. They will be joined by XERXIA, who had to overcome great odds to be able to represent the region on the world stage. Boom Esports is the final APAC representative who proved themselves worthy for the final slot in the APAC LCQ.

“It’s been such a huge year in VALORANT for our region. This year we saw our teams progress further than ever before on the international stage. Our APAC teams wowed audiences with their aggressive and unorthodox plays and made the world sit up and take notice. APAC teams have proven that they should not be underestimated and we are looking forward to seeing them perform at Champions. I hope our fans will join us in cheering these teams on!” said Mark Chui, Marketing Lead, Esports of Riot Games in APAC.
