The biggest question mark right now is what happens to all of the T2 teams that were previously getting paid to play Valorant.
I can't imagine that many NA orgs will stick around paying salaries unless they immediately win through Ascension. It sucks that there will only be around 30 North American players getting paid to play Valorant. The scene as a whole is going to shrink massively.
Shoutout to all of the League orgs that wound up with Franchising spots though without ever really trying in this game (Immo/MIBR, T1, GenG, all of EMEA, etc.)
[Also, it's crazy how anyone complaining about NA franchising just gets downvoted to hell]
