What is the VALO2ASIA Awards?

The VALO2ASIA Awards is one of the initiatives to honor those who have excelled during the year and those who have raised the bar for Asian VALORANT to be on par with other regions. Every year, a 20-member panel from APAC, consisting of current and former professionals in the industry, will compile a list of the best 20 players of the year. Each player selected as a nominee was chosen after a thoughtful evaluation of their respective performances throughout the season.

We want to honor those who have achieved outstanding results throughout the year, those who have lifted the standard of Asian VALORANT. The VALO2ASIA Awards is one of our long-term initiatives to elevate the Asian VALORANT ecosystem. 

Why does it matter?

Awards do not only acknowledge success; they recognize many other qualities: ability, struggle, effort, and above all, excellence. 

We have an important role in the community: to showcase the stars that left the biggest mark in the past 365 days.

Other than recognizing their success, VALO2ASIA wants to help elevate their personal brand, as we believe it is one of the elements that every single player in the ecosystem must have in order to thrive; what sets them apart from the rest? 

Panel of Judges

The rankings are shaped by the collective input of a 20-member judging panel, with their individual votes combined to produce a consolidated list. Our panelists are a diverse mix of talents, bringing insights from the Challengers League, Game Changers, Ascension, and the VCT Pacific League. With their varied perspectives and our broad sample size, we believe the results will be a true representation of the season.

Presenting our Panel of Judges for this year:

Our Panel of Judges

All twenty judges come from various backgrounds, from casters, analysts, former professionals, and community members from eleven different nations. We always strive to represent all members of the Asian VALORANT community and at the same time acknowledge their unsung contributions behind the curtain.
