The tournament was held in Berlin and featured 16 of the world’s best teams. A watershed moment for the Southeast Asia region, with three regional representatives making it to Berlin for the Valorant Champions tournament in Germany.
X10, Team Secret, and Full Sense brought regional talent and gameplay to the global stage, and they have contributed to the establishment of Valorant esports as a legitimate competitive sport in the region.
Despite the fact that it was only released a little more than a year ago, Valorant has quickly risen to become one of the most popular first-person shooter games in the world, with an average of more than 14 million PC players from all over the world logging on each month.
The popularity of Valorant esports has increased significantly in Southeast Asia over the past year. In total, 1200 teams from across the VCT 2021 ecosystem in Southeast Asia took part, with more than 6500 unique players registering.
Riot Games Southeast Asia is collaborating with renowned Singaporean visual artist, Sam Lo, to create three pieces of exclusive, custom designed artwork, each reflecting the essence of Southeast Asia’s best Valorant teams: X10, Team Secret, and Full Sense, to commemorate the successful first year of Valorant esports.
Sam Lo is a visual artist based in Singapore who began his career as an urban artist in his hometown of Ho Chi Minh City. To explore different themes, Lo works in a variety of mediums, from large-scale spray painted murals to delicately hand-sculpted sculptures, each telling a different story through the artist”s lens. Lo’s work has been exhibited internationally.
As a visionary leader in the world of visual arts, Lo’s notable works include the design of Nike’s first Southeast Asian flagship store at Jewel Changi Airport, as well as murals at the Singapore Art Museum and the Singapore International Airport.
By participating in the Fanart of Greatness campaign, fans have the opportunity to own a copy of this exclusive artwork. Beginning on December 2, the fanart contest will run until the end of the year on December 31.
The top ten fans of each team who submit creative fanart entries will be entered into a drawing to win a signed copy of this artwork created by members of X10, Team Secret, or Full Sense, respectively. There will also be a prize draw for a Valorant Birthday Bash mousepad, with 20 lucky runner-ups receiving one each.
