Valorant is one of the most widely played first-person shooter games right now. The game's unique integration of Agents' powers and gunplay has helped it become incredibly popular among gamers. The game combines a MOBA with a tactical shooting experience. This is one of the leading causes of the game's popularity, and the game's current player base consistently corroborates this claim.

In addition, Valorant has a thriving professional scene. Riot has always attempted to expand the scene by involving multiple regions and giving each team better opportunities. After Valorant's release in 2020, several former CS: GO professionals shifted to it to take advantage of the new opportunities. This inspired Riot to continue developing the competitive situation. Since 2021, Riot has already hosted four international LAN competitions. The first international LAN event of the game with a live audience will take place at the upcoming VCT Stage 2 Masters Copenhagen later this month. It will undoubtedly add another new crest feather. After the event, Istanbul will play host to the Champions 2022 international LAN event.

By introducing a franchise structure, Riot is already preparing to grow it even further in the ensuing years. Their motivation to conduct more risky actions for the improvement of the professional scene will undoubtedly increase in light of this award nomination.
