Why? They're rich and already have infrastructure . Also have the support of Indians which have high viewership

Being rich is different than being profitable plus crypto shit + not established like other orgs in franchise(other games brand deals etc)

Crypto is the pet project of their owner it has nothing to with their org lol. They don't have any crypto sponsers. They have brand deals what are you on about? You aren't Indian and it seems like all you know about them is reading stupid bits from vlr which are untrue. Also they're established in the esports that matter in India, how would they be established in esprts like lol or cs if it doesnt even have any scene here. They also have had teams in every t1 esports before when they were relevant here, had a korean roster for owl and fortnite iirc

And why is rooter a bad deal? They also have other sponsors but im curious whats your basis on calling them shit lmfao. They are putting a lot of money in India, how is their streaming service being shit make them bad sponsors?

brand has a value that it comes with.... it's a fucking brand
Just pouring in money won't make it a good brand deal

By that logic every other sea org deserves the slot more than ge

none of them are from a region with highest viewership and no slots? they also don't have any infrastructure in kr. you have 0 clue about what youre talking about from the start, im just gonna stop responding

Only thing going for them is the viewership they'll bring in....
I just hope it doesn't fall if GE goes with a not fully SA roster

All teams probably will have to get a makeshift bootcamp at some point as seoul is where the matches will be played so

No
An organization which never changes its roster for better players, keeps 30 yo washed boomers who must've retired long time ago, doesn't belong in franchise

they hold on to that roster made an indian team dominated the entire SA region for 1.5 years without even a single change. This is a miracle done by global esports. Even though other teams had better aimers judging by there performance in the past from CSGO and then valorant

Exactly, riot wants to do it to make sure about the viewers and all, not about how much deserving a team is, this is the sad reality

Disappointing so many fans when they had750k views in yt for apac qualifiers ge vs vlt , it would be another csgo where India is ignored besides they are bringing Indian Agent too

no- but they are putting in the efforts and their participation in this is crucial for the region itself since so much effort has been put into this game from them and without chances they will just break apart- rito will only not give a slot to GE or to any other team of SA if they simply don't care about the existence of minor regions like ours. This franchise system is damaging and forcing minor rosters to shut down due to them not being selected for this and I think that at least handful of teams of each region/subregion should have a chance

Many people have GE hate boner here.. So it is for sure that except indians many will say they dont deserve this.

But clearly on a economical point of view.. It has to happen
India as a region could offer much more to riot in terms of views or economics.

Regarded as one of the premier VALORANT Esports organizations in South Asia, they have been very active in the competitive scene in the region since the game's launch and have also made a mark at the APAC stages in the VCT circuit
