Game is not released in China.
Of course “not yet” , but it’s been “not yet” since 2020. Games like Fortnite and Rocket League never got approved either.
Let's hope the goddamn government stop the freeze then
Val has a higher chance with how big Tencent is, but it really takes a lot of time even with them supporting it. What is kinda interesting is that the mobile version of Valorant has already been released in China and the PC version not. Who knows how East LCQ plays out if isn't relreased in time, maybe JP and KR get another slot and play without the chinese teams.
What's franchising? Can someone explain
Team will get place in the league irrespective of they play dogshit or best. Everyteam will play in a league it doesn't matter whether a team in the league has 1silver player and 4 bronze they will still play in the league
I hope they make it APAC S(SEA+SA+OCE) and APAC N(KR+JP+CN)
yea Asia is too big
There's no way to happen... Valorant is not released in China
It's gonna be just APAC (SEA+SA+OCE+KR+JP)
EDIT: I think that for this ideia happens, they need to put MENA in APAC, then we got:
APAC West (MENA+SEA+SA)
APAC East (KR+JP+OCE)
Where’s HK/TW ?
Ignore this reply... typed some missinformation 😅
mate stop being a clown
Why being a clown? I just didn't know some informations... after you replied they belong to SEA, I edited mine
btw I wrote "I think", showing that I was not sure
you said taiwan is a part of China
I don't need to elaborate more
Well... they have a real long "politic fight" about it, cause Taiwan politics declares themselves as an independent country, but China never recognized it
Some countries acknowledge Taiwan as a Chinese province, and others acknowledge them an independent country
oce and sa getting spots in asian league...
why not south asia? wtf?
sa cant even beat tier 2 apac
yea DK got fucked by GE lol
and did nothing again while dk came 3rd in that tourney. wheres ge now?
who knows? GE might go 2nd in KR lol
They deserve 1 spot since they bring more than 20k viewership too
theres no physical capacity in which one looks at dk ons roster and goes 'damn ge is better on paper!' or watches the gameplays of both and goes 'damn GE is better coordinated and better strategically!'. but yeah they will probably get one due to GE huge viewership
Pretty sure viewership is not what riot is looking at for franchising
Viewership should be accounted too
If you are bitter about just 1 SA's slot, then KR should bring consistent 20k+ viewership
Franchising is business after all
our average games bring 15k. that obviously increases with more popular teams
Then make another region for SA and OCE? what's your opinion?
The only solution is to divide APAC into 2 (South and North) but Riot apparently doesn't want to do that
Kr besides DRX is tier 3 APAC mate he said tier 2
next year youre gonna turn into a KR bandwagon when we win every apac tournament
if OGT gets more korean players(which are quite good imo) sure mate but otherwise east asian teams are about to get exposed hard I still believe DRX is the only great team from east asia(dk about CN yet) but otherwise its on same level as rest of the APAC t1 teams if not worse
DK >> XIA > APAC
sure a team which couldn't qualify for Korean finals and lost to GE is better than a team which finished 5th in champs
youre so brainwashed its hard to explain what NTH beating XIA really means
all of xerxia got diffed by meteor and joxjo. meteor wasnt even considered a top 3 duelist in kr and joxjo was a 'no name'. nt
biggest fluke in history of valorant esports
I say this unironically with the upmost seriousness
I dont think its fluke ge beat drx in scrims, Ik scrims doesnt means shit but hate me or not there is some logic behind a region's/team overall gamestyle counters some other region/team, like latam/kru > br, eu > optic, sea>>>sa but yeah it just shows how good a team plays when looking at it and ge doesnt show the same in apac challengers
why tf they gonna give a whole region to china, that's like a nonexistent scene.
and is the american league still limited to 8, riot on some bullshit
