Falcons just made top 3 in the RLCS major after beating SSG, making them the first non NA/EU team to make the podium in RL

If a minor region with a dominant team like Falcons can do it in another game after all the hype, then is it finally time for DRX to make a podium finish?? this is probably hopium but one can dream

whoever got more points in stage 2 entirety
if thats a tie, its head to head
assume from there its who placed higher in vct emea

posted 3 days ago

because thats not how it works
the seeding takes the region final results from the previous event and puts them together regardless of who the team that placed there is
in this case, the order is probably

na1
latam/br1 (latam1)
apac1
emea1

br1
jp1
kr1
na2
apac2
eu2
latam2
eu3

which is probably how we got the groups we have, it kinda? makes more sense since jp1 and kr1 are also against eachother

Bo also agrees that BLD has a much higher chance than PRX to make franchising

posted 1 week ago

Yes, it’s true Riot is the ones giving the money. However, they’re looking for the orgs that are stable and reputable enough in terms of operations.
There’s no doubt Bleed outmatches PRX, as I and other APAC insighters can most likely agree on. Bleed’s founder himself said f0rsaken is paid “pennies” compared to what other players of his caliber get. Benkai also talked about past struggles that the org had financially (back when they were PRX CSGO) and that brings them down in stability/reputability.

In short Riot wants the biggest names who have the most tenure/positive repetoire to themselves. Bleed alone is raising 30 million dollars in investments, does Riot not look at that in a positive light for such a new org? That alone is similar to that of orgs like 100T who are raising 50 million in investment funds, and that’s in a much more stable region

posted 1 week ago

from what i know, heres some changes id make to your list based off what ive been told

S: DRX, DK, ZETA, BLD, TS, XIA (SBXG/KT)
Orgs supporting Val from the beginning/large commitment, reputable names and overall biggest orgs in Asia. Most likely of these are very likely to make it.
+LCK orgs have been approached by Riot in regards to franchising (as is with all League regions likely) and SBX + KT have shown the most interest in Valorant as of now.

A: CR, PSJ, ORDER, EDG, RNG, TLN, IG
Many of these orgs are pretty big in their own right (especially PSJ) but for the most part the reason for them not making it is mostly due to either not being enough slots or some other factors. Most likely of these imo are CR and PSJ, ORDER if OCE is getting a slot. EDG, IG, and RNG are complicated as god knows when China is getting approved for VAL, and who knows what their plan is as of now

A-: BOOM, ONIC, RRQ, NGX
Other massive orgs in their own right but as goes with the A tier teams, it’d be a small chance for them to make it over other preestablished names

B: MITH, DGW, ONS, RIG, other big-name SEA/JP/KR orgs
Low chance already but could have a small chance if they stand out well enough. Highest chance out of these is MITH especially with FPSThailand under their belt

No: X10C, PRX

Anything below this is a no unless some miracle happens. Most notably Paper Rex, who is in a veryyyy very tight situation right now as its a near no chance PRX on their own makes franchising. Would have to take either a buyout (roster/org) or big partnership or even just a miracle acceptance for them to make it. PRX is a small org as much as it hurts to say and theyve faced massive issues in the past with financials etc.

South Asia would also have to take a miracle for them to be accepted. Despite how big orgs are such as S8ul, GE, VLT, etc. the region alone simply isnt developed/stable enough for them to make it. Godlike alone is hurting SA due to their poaching scandal against TSM. Highest likely org to make it out of SA is Orangutan or someone like S8ul etc and to be quite honest there’s no clue whether they have a shot or not.
