Tempo Storm and LG Team Up for Huge Valorant Tournament
This weekend, a huge tournament for Valorant is going to be popping off, thanks to Tempo Storm and LG! The LG UltraGear FACE-OFF, powered by Tempo, will bring the best in professional players together with content creators and casters to bring must-see action to Twitch. Valorant’s one of the hottest esports games right now, despite not having its official esports league. That’s not stopped orgs like Tempo Storm bringing talent together to do battle.
It’s Going Down
This is the first collaboration between LG Electronics and Tempo Storm. It may not be the last if this is successful! The tournament will also show off the world’s first 4K IPS 1ms GTG Gaming Monitor from LG in action. That sounds like something we want sitting on our desks, to be honest.
This monitor is a beast from what we’ve seen: A 27″ 4K UHD screen, with a 144 Hz refresh rate adn 1 ms response time. It’s also G-SYNC and Radeon FreeSync compatible. It’s not a cheap piece of hardware ($799.99), but quality technology for your computer never is.
The Tempo Storm x LG Valorant tournament takes place on Saturday, Oct. 3, at 1 p.m. PST, only on Twitch. What can we expect in this tournament? There will be four teams with 20 streamers from various titles, including Call of Duty, Overwatch, Fortnite, CSGO and more. The winner gets a grand prize of $10,000. Even if Riot Games hasn’t stepped up, other companies definitely will for Valorant action on the Internet.
“We’re thrilled to be working with LG to produce such a monumental event for the gaming community and to showcase their first-of-its-kind UltraGear gaming monitors,” said Ryan Turner, Tempo Storm’s senior partnerships and marketing manager. “After over six years of broadcasting and live streaming experience, the Tempo team is excited to debut our new virtual stage with LG UltraGear. We’re confident this will be the first of many impactful productions with such a great company.”
LG handpicked the streamers. They include QcOW, m0xyy, LuvStruck, daltoosh, draynilla, ChicaLive, EmadGG, sinatraa, Morgausse, co1azo, huskerrs, Greekgodx, Shahzam, ploo, jakenbake, WARDELL, fl0m, Timthetatman, Autumn and m0E_tv. So, we’ve got the best of the best taking part. There’s no telling how the teams will shake up and work together.
The LG UltraGear FACE-OFF tournament will also debut the new Tempo Storm virtual stage, so that’s another cool thing to look forward to.
