Several North American Valorant professional players have started to create a players association for direct communication with developer and tournament organizer Riot Games, Dot Esports reported citing their own sources.
The players association will represent the players in the region and influence the decisions made in the competitive circuit. The association’s funding and decision-making is planned to be independent of Riot.
According to Dot Esports, the association included around 30 players, with several well-known figures on the advisory board. These players include Will "dazzle" Loafman, Joshua "steel" Nissan, Anthony "vanity" Malaspina, Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik and Jordan "AYRIN" He.
The players association was set up after the reveal of the partnership leagues, which will begin in 2023.
