VCT Champions teams benefit as more players become Champions with new VALORANT skins.
The VCT Champions Collection has already been an exciting success for Riot Games and the players at the event, and there's more to come.
For VALORANT's first global competition, Riot has created a collection of skins to celebrate the event. Half of the proceeds will go to teams participating in the VCT Champions with a notable “over $7.5 million”.
The 16 teams competing in the event have their eyes on the VALORANT World Champions title as well as the highest prize pool for a VALORANT competition. Prior to that, the highest prize pool was $225.000 awarded at Stage Three Masters in Berlin, where Gambit Esports took home $700.000. VCT Champions will have a base prize pool of one million dollars and half of the proceeds from the sale of the currently climbing Champions bundle.
VALORANT players can purchase in-game skins and other items until December 13, one day after the Finals end, and the first global VALORANT champion will be crowned.
Champions Vandal is one of their “most ambitious looks to date,” according to Riot, with several features inspired by global competition. Unique features include the coveted “Champions Aura, a glow that appears on the skin when scoring a kill.” Like other VALORANT skins, the Champions collection features a unique finisher that will immerse players in the world of the music video for the competition's official song, “Die For You.”
