Very big sadge
There’s always room to increase though, League has way more teams no? We could always see more teams being introduced in the future
no every league in LOL got 10-8 teams, only china is more with 17
17 (LPL) + 60 (LCK, LEC, LCS, PCS, CBLOL, TCL) + 32 (VCS, LLA, LJL, LCO) = 109
Valorant = 30
Do LOL teams get paid by Riot like Valorant teams will?
Not exactly, they have to pay a franchise fee to get into relations to be accepted from there riot does work with the teams but im not sure if its direct stipends.
so makes sense there aren't that many teams selected in Valorant compared tot LOL
yea riot is fully relying on the org to put up the effort in val compared to LoL where the fee is just a ticket straight to the final round of franchising where riot holds all the cards
i wonder if the league is 10 partnered teams + 2 teams from relegation/promotion so 12 total
Team skins confirmed
VALORANT : 30 teams in 3 "first division" (VCT)
LOL : 117 teams in 12 "first division"
So sad that the season ends in September tbh. I hope Riot really allow companies like ESL and Blast to hold events
