Riot Games is taking a grassroots approach with developing the Valorant esports scene, and the Ignition Tournament Series is their answer. Small-sized tournaments have been held globally with smaller prize pools. And this week the Asia-Pacific region battled for a $20,000 prize pool in the Pacific Open.

Ahq e-Sports Club and Attack All Around faced off in the Grand Finals of the Pacific Open and went to war. And the teams gave us a grand final that went five full games before the best agents could ascend to 1st place. Ahq cliched the final game on Haven with a convincing 13:8 victory and winning a nice $13,000. Attack All Around's 2nd place finish awarded $5,000.

The community is hungry for more competitive Valorant as the scene is gaining momentum. We hope for bigger and bigger prize pools. The Ignition Series is a good start and the right direction for Riot games to take this growing competitive scene. I believe competitive games live and die on their esports scene. Riot knows this, and the hype for Valorant pushes forward with Riot supporting its community.
