Valorant Premier, A Way Into the Big Leagues

If you’ve ever wanted to break into the world of professional Valorant, this might just be your time to shine. An all-new Valorant tournament mode is currently in the works. Named Valorant Premier, this experimental feature will allow players to get a taste of the Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) Champions circuit.

Team RRQ = Team Philippines?

On Sunday, Team RRQ surprised the Valorant esports scene in Indonesia by unveiling their newest Valorant lineup. The RRQ Team's social media accounts announced that...

Meme Monday: Lighten(ing) your mood with these Neon memes

It’s been a few weeks since the release of Valorant’s newest agent, Neon, and she’s been a blast to play with (and against.) Naturally, a character as fun as Neon will breed memes equally as electrifying. Here are some Neon memes that are guaranteed to strike your funny bone.

Meme Monday: You’ve seen the Spider-Verse, now get ready for the Riot-Verse

It’s only midway through January and Riot is already treating us well with the release of two new characters: Neon from Valorant and Zeri from League of Legends (LOL). Even better, Neon is canonically Filipino, a huge win for Southeast Asian gamers! But we, like the rest of the internet, are seeing double – Neon and Zeri are practically the same person. Case in point: They are voiced by the same Filipino voice actress, have very similar abilities and look basically identical. We can’t help but think that Riot is trying to hint at something…a Riot multiverse, perhaps? It won’t be too far-fetched, since crossovers between both games have happened and Valorant’s storyline literally revolves around a second Earth from another universe. Alright, that’s enough speculation. This Meme Monday, we bring you PROOF of the Riot-Verse. Well, kinda.

Behold the multiverse theory! Neon and Zeri: one and the same?

The term ‘multiverse’ has been thrown left and right a lot lately. It’s been the talk of the town. While most have heard about this from the ever-growing Marvel franchise, gamers have noticed a similar happening in the esports scene.

I am Female. I AM also ESPORTS!

Firstly, yes, I am female. Yes, I have a masculine name. I love playing FPS games, especially team based ones like Overwatch and Valorant, which often require team communication in order to win. However, I rarely talk. Why? Because I am female. Just look up videos talking about or showing the female gaming experience on YouTube and you’ll know exactly why. Rude remarks, people making a big fuss just because I sound like a girl and people blaming me for doing badly solely because of my gender and not because of my lack of skill. The list goes on.

Shooting for the top: Ultiasia’s best 5 FPS games in 2021

From gaming’s early, experimental days (think Doom 1993) to gaming becoming a multi billion dollar industry today, first-person shooter (FPS) games have always been a popular staple. The FPS scene consistently graces us with iconic games and franchises (who DOESN'T know Call of Duty?) and has constantly evolved, becoming a hub for game developers to innovate and create new experiences. As we usher in the new year, let’s look back at what FPS games have impacted us the most in 2021.

Valorant Champions ends off with a bang

Arguably Riot Games’ biggest international tournament yet, Valorant Champions had ended off with a bang last Sunday on 12 December after the two strongest teams, Team Gambit and Acend had duked it out in the grand finals. With the latter emerging victorious with a score of 13-8, Team Acend managed to secure the Valorant Champions 2021 title and the much sought after prize pool of $350,000. 

3 SEA teams in Valorant Champions 2021: Will they dominate?

Well folks, it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. One year. Two major tournaments. More than 10,000 teams watered down to just 16. It has all come down to this, the top dogs of the Valorant esports scene battling it out to be crowned the first ever Valorant Champion. Here, we find three Southeast Asian (SEA) teams – Thailand’s X10 CRIT and FULL SENSE and the Philippines' Team Secret – amongst the best of the best, and we couldn't be prouder. But...we can’t help but wonder: what ARE their chances in this global tournament, full of hungry, hungry competitors?
