Riot Games will soon be hosting “the first international LAN tournament for VALORANT”, called Valorant Champions Tour Reykjavik. Starting May 24, the top ten Valorant e-Sport teams from around the world will battle for a piece of the $600,000 prize pool. According to the official blog “More than 2000 teams from seven different regions attempted to qualify for the event, but just 10 will compete in Iceland.”

Based on the high stakes these teams are competing for and it is the biggest Valorant tournament hosted by Riot Games to date, it is shocking to see professionals like TenZ being given sub-standard equipment. This could hamper his practice and impact his team’s performance on the grand stage.

TenZ opened up more on the situation while he was practicing on stream. He says “I complained about the FPS, and they were like, unlucky! I also tried to get them to update the GPU drivers, which were like a year old. They said that it didn’t make much of a difference, so they are not going to do it.” In addition to this, TenZ has also complained about slow internet speeds and frame rate drops.
