Recently, the gaming community was surprised with a Tactics Arena tournament with money thought to be virtual money, even a high-ranking Riot Games employee as the main commentator.
Appears the first Tactics Arena tournament using virtual currency as a prize
In the current era, virtual currency technology is developing dramatically and quickly becoming a new trend, which is of great interest to the worldwide community. However, for many countries or organizations, virtual currencies are still not accepted and some countries are still looking for ways to tighten regulation of these virtual currencies, or even ban them altogether.
Riot Games – one of the largest corporations in the field of Esports in the world and also the father of League of Legends – has also expressed a view not to accept virtual money in its Esports segment and affirmed that there will be no problems. no exception in this regard. Even a team in the LCS, Team SoloMid, was sponsored by FTX (a virtual currency trading platform), but Riot Games did not allow the name FTX to be included in the top North American tournament.
But for Riot Mortdog – who is considered the “father” of Teamfight Tactics mode – suddenly expressed an opposite opinion from Riot. Specifically, he expressed his excitement when the virtual currency story appeared in the field of Esports by retweeting an announcement about a Tactics Arena tournament with the main prize being virtual money. The most interesting thing is that Riot Mortdog will also be one of the commentators appearing at this tournament.
Accordingly, this tournament will be called TFT Pro-Am and will be held for any player with a Riot Games account in North America. This tournament has a total prize value of up to 10,000 USD (about 230 million VND) but chhoiw only receive cash of 2,000 USD, the rest will be converted into a virtual currency called Allie Coin.
When a senior member of Riot Games shows his interest in an Esports tournament that uses virtual currency as the main prize money, this could also be a sign that Riot may be “relaxing” the rules. its regulations regarding virtual currencies in the future. This could be a tournament for Riot to experiment with the use of virtual currency in its Esports mechanism, and if successful, it is likely that virtual currency will appear in major League of Legends tournaments, including MSI or Worlds for example. .
However, the use of virtual currency for a professional tournament also has many problems, when the value of that virtual currency depends on many factors that can go up and down in an unexpected way. This is also the primary reason why many organizations and governments do not want virtual currencies to invade too much into the modern world.
