in the Philippines

20 March 2023, Philippines - Riot Games has officially launched the VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT) Pacific League 2023 with a kickoff event at The Podium Hall, Mandaluyong City, Philippines.

Riot Games is launching the VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT) Pacific League 2023 with a kickoff event in the Philippines!

This new competitive league will start on March 25 and run until May 28, 2023 in Seoul, South Korea.

Riot Games is committed to creating hyper-local experiences in the region, tailored to meet the needs of their passionate VALORANT players.

The Filipino community is one of the biggest and most passionate VALORANT communities in the region. The start of this new competitive league in the Philippines is a natural step for our continued expansion in APAC.

The VCT Pacific tournament promises to be a thrilling event as fans express their warm support to the Philippines squad, Team Secret.

Team Secret proved to be the one to look out for after they displayed a monumental upset against Netherland's Team Liquid, 2-0, in the VCT LOCK//IN tournament in Sao Paulo, Brazil last February.

Other teams competing for the first-ever VCT Pacific title and prize pool of USD 250,000 include Indonesian squad Rex Regum Qeon, with two Pinoys in their roster, DetonatioN FocusMe, DRX, Gen.G, Global Esports, RRQ, T1, Talon eSports, and Zeta Division!

I've never played in a tournament, but I think I'd get my butt kicked if I were to even attempt being in one. I would love to be there to watch from the stands and see what those skills do with the crew!
