FPX Valorant: FunPlus Pheonix recruiting Valorant players from China?: FunPlus Pheonix organisation is looking to sign Chinese Valorant players.
FunPlus Pheonix is one of the biggest organisations in China. According to their Weibo account, they are looking to sign some potential Valorant players from China to complete their Valorant roster. Weibo is a microblogging website and one of the biggest social media platforms in China.
The interested players should satisfy the following conditions before applying according to the post made by the organisation:
- Players must be at least 16 years old.
- Players should have reached Radiant rank in Valorant.
- Players should preferably already have experience in either VALORANT or Counter-Strike.
FunPlus Pheonix currently has a Valorant roster comprising of European players. The team is considered one of the best Valorant teams in the European Valorant region and has made many deep runs in various tournaments. So, the question is, if the organisation signs Chinese players, what will happen to the current FPX Valorant roster? This is because an organisation cannot have multiple rosters playing under it's banner according to rules set by Riot Games.
Cloud9, an American Organisation had to dissolve it's Korean Valorant roster due to the same aforementioned rule. The only reason that FPX is looking for players from China now and didn't before has to do something with the fact that Valorant isn't released in China yet. This is because the game hasn't been approved by the Chinese government yet. But as of lately, Riot Games seems to have registered all the trademarks and copyrights for Valorant meaning the game might release in the country soon.
This might be the stepping stone for the Chinese Valorant players in the already established Valorant professional/Esports scene.
