Valorant Convergence 2023 will begin in a couple of days. This is going to be a fairly big Valorant tournament, so let’s learn more about them.
The professional scene in Valorant offers players and fans a lot of options to have fun. After discussing the Asian Pacific Predator League 2023, the next important event on our list is Valorant Convergence 2023. This is another interesting event that will gather several big names, so let’s learn more about it. Don’t forget to check the favorites for the Game Changers 2023 Championship because the event ends today.
Valorant Convergence 2023 Overview
When it comes down to this Valorant tournament, the first important thing you should know is that Riot Games and The Esports Club organize it. The event’s sponsors are Intel and Lenovo, and the matches will take place on patch 7.10.
What’s interesting is that this is a LAN tournament that will be in Bangalore, India. The teams that attend the Valorant Convergence 2023 will compete for a $50,000 prize pool, and the tournament itself will take place between December 14 and 17.
Format and Teams
The format of the Valorant Convergence 2023 will include a Group Stage and a Grand Final. The group stage will consist of two groups that will have 3 teams each. Every team has to play each other in a Bo3 format. Once every match is over, the best squad will advance to the Grand Final. In other words, we will only have one match in the playoffs, and it will be in a Bo5 format.
If we take a look at the participating teams, we can see the following names:
- FURIA Esports
- FUT Esports
- Team Vitality
- Gen.G Esports
- Global Esports
- True Rippers
We can see several big names, but a few of them stand out when talking about the favorites.
Despite the fact that FUT Esports was unable to win the big event in 2023, the Turkish team is probably one of the best at this tournament. The most recent big competition for the team was at the Valorant Championship 2023, which is where FUT Esports finished 7th-8th after losing to Fnatic. This was not ideal, but the team survived the Group Stage and proved it had what it took to beat a lot of top-tier names.
FUT Esports’s current roster has been together for a few months now, so we expect them to win this tournament.
Albeit on a different level than their Turkish counterparts, the Brazilian squad of FURIA Esports is also a potential favorite. 2023 was not the best for the club because it did not take part in any of the big competitions. The squad’s most recent event was the Superdome 2023 – Colombia, where it finished 2nd.
Despite the fact that this Indian squad is in the Tier 2 scene, it is among the favorites. The team’s most recent results have been pretty solid so we can expect them to shine. Moreover, the team is playing in its own country, which should give them even more motivation.
Valorant Convergence 2023 will be the last (sort of) big tournament for 2023. Once this event is over, the best teams will start preparing for the upcoming season. We at ESTNN will provide you with all of the information you need, so make sure to follow us.
