◎ VALORANT tournament organizers unable to pay prize money, financial crisis

  • Earlier this month, it was reported that North American VALORANT pro gamers and cast members had not received their prize money from the tournament organizers. Later, foreign media reported that the organizer was in a financial crisis. An organization named Nerd Street Gamers (hereinafter referred to as NSG) was a group that played three stages of the VALORANT Challengers Tour in North America.

At the time, the issue of non-payment of prize money arose and angered fans, but according to this additional report, NSG is considering the option of maintaining external investment or selling the company due to serious management difficulties. Already at the end of January, 25% of NSG’s total staff was cut. If this report is true, it seems that it is not easy for many people who have not been paid prize money and appearance fees to achieve what they want.
