The Oceanic Valorant scene has got plenty of competition on the cards, with Order chiming in with their own Nova Invitational starting April 12. The tournament features the best teams in the region, duking it out over one week for $12,000.
Between the Valorant Oceania Tour, Rising Heroes, and now the Order Nova Invitational, there’s plenty of Valorant competition happening here in Australia.
The Ignition Series event organisers are set to put on a spectacle starting on April 12.
Six teams have already been invited to the main event: Order, Wildcard, Mindfreak, Dire Wolves, Kanga Esports, and Bliss (formerly Funcrew).
The remaining two spots in the eight-team main event will be filled out through the Open Qualifier. Up to 64 slots are available in the lead-up event, run in a single-elimination BO1 format.
$12,000 is up for grabs in the Nova Invitational, with $6,000 on the line for the winners.
VOT Stage 1 champions Order will be the favorites heading into the competition, but with Wildcard making big signings ahead of Stage 2 and the other squads breathing down their neck, it’s still anyone’s guess.
The Order Nova Invitational kicks off on April 12 with the Open Qualifier. Sign-ups are still open on the Nova invitational website. They close on Saturday, April 10 at 7pm AEST.
You can catch the action live on the Order Twitch channel, along with various community casts throughout the week.
