The VALORANT EMEA Champions Tour has been postponed due to the ongoing dispute between Russia and Ukraine, Riot Games has confirmed. All the matches from the third week of the tournament will now be played later, but the dates are yet to be revealed.
The past few days have been shocking for everyone around the globe. The ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine has left many speechless, and needless to say; everyone is in dismay. This has also led to Riot Games delaying all the matches from week third of the VALORANT EMEA Champions Tour.
“After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone VCT EMEA Week 3 games. Our community’s welfare is integral to us and at this time, our number one priority is to support the players, casters, staff and fans affected by the escalating crisis in Ukraine,” Riot Games said on Twitter.
Although Riot Games’ tweet only highlighted the delay of week three games, we can expect it to be much longer. There have been no signs of the storm subduing so far, and the tournament is likely to be halted for some time.
