APRU invites students in the Asia Pacific Rim to participate in the Rampage Invitational Tournament to build community and connectivity through competition. In a 5v5 Valorant title, we wish to inspire students’ connectivity and support for one another.
APRU Rampage Invitational Tournament gives students an opportunity to build community across borders and universities to participate in competitive and exclusive tournament series. APRU has been working intensively over the past year in an academic setting with the leaders of esports clubs to understand their career aspirations and help them gain access to the industry. Through this tournament we seek to deepen the relationships among students and build community among and between our esports clubs. We hope to increase our collective value to offer prizes to students that will advance university esports’ clubs ambitions to make an impact in their university.
