Aiming to boost their popularity, Riot continues the three-year tradition of using co-streamers for their big events.
Riot Gets a Strong Co-Streamer Lineup
Back in 2018, Riot implemented the idea of using co-streamers to broadcast the big League of Legends events. The practice proved highly successful, with viewer numbers for the LoL Championship Series and LoL European Championship going up. Each co-streamer brought some of their audience to the online event, and at the same time, some people interested in the event found themselves a new streamer to follow. The idea of using co-streamers was beneficial to all parties involved. Thus it stuck for the years that followed.
The tendency then spread among other games such as CS: GO and VALORANT as well. Now, as the VALORANT Champions Tour or VCT is reaching the exciting regional climax of Stage One, Riot’s new big title will be getting one of the strongest co-streamer lineups of all time.
Richard “Ninja” Blevins, Imane “Pokimane” Anys, Ali “Myth” Kabbani, and Michael “shroud” Grzesiek will all partner with Riot Games as co-streamers of the event, the game company announced. Ninja, Myth, and shroud have already participated as co-streamers, and Pokimane will be a new addition that will bring fresh viewers to the event.
The four streamers will broadcast on their personal Twitch channels in Riot’s favor. Riot is also going to feature people from the Plat Chad podcast as co-streamers on Youtube.
There will also be the main broadcast, held on the official VALORANT Esports NA Twitch channel. Meanwhile, Valorant is preparing to head for Reykjavik, Iceland, for Stage Two.
