Right after Riot launched game servers in Bahrain to service players in the Middle East and Pakistan, there was a huge surge in engagement and excitement in the region.
Soon after release, Valorant made it to the charts as the fast-growing First Person Shooter (FPS) PC online game of 2020. This encouraged NODWIN Gaming South Asia to develop an extensive plan to kickstart Valorant Esports for the gaming community in Pakistan.
“Valorant has hit the ball right out of the park with ease. There is an X-factor about this game that no other FPS has managed to crack. The servers in regions like Bahrain and Mumbai were set up in no time, so that gives a massive boost to a huge gamer base in many countries," said Merlin Wiedeking, CEO NODWIN International.
"Our friends at Riot Games have done an exceptional job in laying the groundwork and now our plan is to bring in some key competitive experiences to players here. Pakistan is a vital point in our South Asia plans and Jazba is the first step towards that.”
