North American esports organisation Complexity Gaming has partnered with Nerd Street Gamers to host the Complexity VALORANT Invitational.
The online invitational will take place on January 9th-10th, 2021 and pits 16 North American VALORANT teams against one another for a share of the $10,000 (£7,475) prize pool.
The Complexity VALORANT Invitational powered by Nerd Street Gamers will be the first VALORANT tournament of 2021. Nerd Street Gamers’ $10,000 VALORANT Monthly tournament, taking place on December 26th-27th, will serve as an official qualifier for the event.
The top four teams from the qualifier will then join 12 directly invited teams, including Complexity’s VALORANT team, in the digital arena for the event.
Kyle Bautista, Chief Operating Officer at Complexity Gaming commented: “The Complexity VALORANT Invitational powered by Nerd Street Gamers is a unique opportunity for up-and-comers and established professionals to come together in the first VALORANT tournament of the new year. As VALORANT gains momentum in the esports ecosystem, we’re looking forward to teaming up with Nerd Street Gamers and contributing to the continued growth of the game’s vibrant community of players and fans.”
Nerd Street Gamers will manage all areas of the event, including tournament operations, broadcasting, and talent management. Complexity will produce content to be integrated throughout the event’s live broadcast.
Sean Powell, Director of Competitive Operations at Nerd Street Gamers added: “As we continue our work with the VALORANT community, we are honoured to partner with Complexity for the first VALORANT tournament of 2021.
“We strive to provide opportunities for amateur gamers and joining forces with Complexity for the VALORANT qualifier and invitational allows us to accomplish that goal of accessibility.”
Esports Insider says: The ability to manage and broadcast online competitions has set organisations apart during the global pandemic in terms of survival and adaptability. Nerd Street Gamers also continues to expand, opening three new locations and announcing plans for the ‘world’s first esports industry campus’ in Philadephia.
