According to Brazilian League of Legends caster Guilherme “Tixinhadois” Cheida, the main event of Valorant First Strike, which is scheduled to take place from December 3-6, will be held on LAN at Riot Games Brazil studios.
The caster claims that he has “first-hand news” regarding this information.
He further mentions that the event will ensure the same precautions and protocols that were used in the CBLOL finals.
