Ishaan Arya, Co-Founder & Head of Business Development of the Esports Club stated that TEC expects to form the competitive base for Valorant esports in the region and help provide a sustainable and long-term platform for both teams and players.
“Right now they don’t have any foresight and thus you still see teams disbanding, shuffling, etc, because they’re not competing actively in proper events,” said Arya. “The format is going to be a first of its kind and will provide adequate opportunities for the top tier, mid-tier, and amateur teams.” TEC will provide more details on the upcoming event over the coming days. While this might be a beautiful opportunity for gamers all over South Asia to ignite their talents, it will definitely be a treat to the eyes as well.
