After a momentous and highly successful first edition of the Skyesports Valorant League in 2020, the premier Tournament organizer has returned with a bang with Skyesports Valorant League 2021 boasting a prizepool of 1.5 million INR. Much of the format and team structure has been retained from the 2020 edition, with eight cities scheduled to go blow-for-blow in their quest to be crowned champions as Team Mahi look to defend Hyderabad’s glory from the 2020 edition.
You now have a chance to become a part of this Valorant extravaganza.
A new tangent has been drawn by Skyesports, inviting players to register in order to form a player pool, which will then be held to auction for the eight-city leaders.
While there is the prospect of the respective city franchises retaining their players and influencers from the previous edition, each team is now required to have a squad with the strength of 10 players – 2 of the spots being filled by influencers.
This will allow an influx of players from mainstream Valorant, giving new faces a chance to rise just like many did in the 2020 edition.
Any player above the age of 16 who at the very least, has a Valorant rank that is Gold or above can register to participate in the player pool for the auction, which will be held on the 31st of March from 1800 Hours IST to 2100 Hours.
The city and/or franchise leaders will be equipped with an equal amount of virtual currency to spend on players and fill their spots, with a maximum of 60 players set to be available in the auction pool.
Talking about upping the ante, Skyesports seem to be taking things to the next level with announcements of every city franchise filled with a pinch of grandeur, especially with Chennai Clutchers partnering up with popular Indian theater chain AGS Cinemas.
AMD Ryzen powered Skyesports Valorant League 2021 is set to commence with the league stages from the 9th of April to the 26th of May before entering the three-day playoffs on the 28th of May and culminating into the Grand Finale, that is scheduled to take place on the 1st day of June.
