There are video games that, as soon as they reach our devices, already seek to generate a competitive ecosystem. Those who follow this process in a hurry end up failing. This is not something that happened with VALORANT. From Riot Games they decided to take things easy and instead of starting with a professional system directly, They went step by step to ensure that everything grew naturally.
We talked about it with Alberto Delgado «Bertiux«, Brand Manager of VALORANT in Riot Games Iberia. Bertiux is very happy with how things have evolved in the shooter. Yes indeed, they had to be very careful and have a lot of patience, especially since people asked for competitions from the beginning. Finally, following their own steps they have managed to get to where they are today, although this is far from the limit that is marked.
The Evolution of VALORANT Competitive
As Bertiux explains, starting the competitive was complicated, especially because at first you have to be careful. «People were asking us for a lot of competitions and I think there was potential to have released it sooner than we did. However, our final decision was to go slow and smart, drawing competitions from the bottom up.«, he highlighted.
Bertiux acknowledges that now look back and see that everything was very complicated. «We have reached a point where VALORANT is only going up and competitive still has a lot of potential to continue growing“said the Brand Manager by VALORANT.
And what about the VRL USA: Rising?
We always hear that the VRL USA: Rising It is the best league in the world. Some take it as a meme, but others like Bertiux believe that he is partially right. «It’s something that I feel that way because of the level of the teams, the caliber of the players, the caster team, the production… I think it’s incredible. We have players like Fit1nho either keloqz, but there are many more. It is a joy to see them“, confirmed the rioter.
What Bertiux is clear about is that VALORANT’s competitive can grow a lot as there are bigger events like the Champions. All of this will help to create iconic events that, although they may not reach your level, will be close to what are the World’s from League of Legends. «Getting to this level of seeing an event that has that level of solemnity is what we aspire to and what I think we want to get to.«, he finished.
