MANILA, Philippines — RRQ Founder and CEO Andrian Pauline has clarified his organization’s inclusion in the upcoming Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) 2023.
In a Q&A session conducted on Pauline’s social media and summarized in RRQ COO Calvin Victor Thenderan’s Facebook post, RRQ will be a mixed roster in the competition, confirming that there will be Indonesian representation in its 2023 list.
They are also in the process of selecting a new head coach in a bid to present “the most competitive roster” for the competition.
When the 2023 VCT Pacific League teams were announced, Riot Game PR clarified to Philstar.com that RRQ’s roster would be the same Filipino roster they competed with last year, the team passing under RRQ Philippines.
When questions about the listing were raised, Philstar.com asked RRQ for clarification, and RRQ responded with Thenderan’s post, calling it an official statement from RRQ’s COO on the matter.
Riot Games then released the VCT 2023 Esports Services Agreement, outlining all upcoming league rules and regulations.
September 26, 2022 to February 1, 2023 will be considered the pre-season transfer window with teams added to their competitive roster, but players will only officially become part of the squad once a visa and a valid work permits obtained.
Once the pre-season transfer window closes, all teams will no longer be allowed to make changes to their respective rosters.
Additionally, Riot Games released its roster building rules stating that at least four of its starting roster must be residents of the region they are competing in, allowing only one import per team.
Riot Games has also increased the minimum age requirement for players to 18 (born on or before March 26, 2005).
Teams can have six to 10 members in their roster. In addition, teams are allowed a maximum of four reserve players and a maximum of three coaches.
