Nerd Street runs highly popular OfflineTV VALORANT tournament

by Brian Bencomo

Last month, Nerd Street helped run one of the most popular VALORANT tournaments this year. Nerd Street was the tournament operator and broadcast producer for OfflineTV’s SoloQ VALORANT Invitational.

With some of the most popular streamers and pro VALORANT players taking part, the tournament has brought in over 3.5 million views across Twitch and YouTube videos and streams thus far. Most of the views occurred during the two-day tournament, but the views continue to climb as people have rewatched or discovered the event in the past couple weeks.

The OfflineTV SoloQ VALORANT Invitational took on a unique format in which the five-player teams were constantly changing. Each new team iteration consisted of one player from each of five ranks: pro, immortal, ascendant, platinum-diamond and gold-silver.
