Predator Gaming steps in as a key partner, supplying the event monitors that will elevate the visual experience for participants. These high-performance monitors boast high-speed IPS panels with refresh rates and response times that set the stage for unparalleled gameplay. The partnership with Predator Gaming ensures that participants at The Carry1st VALZA Cup will have the best visuals, enabling them to showcase their skills with precision and clarity.

For Quark by Clear Access, their contribution forms the backbone of the tournament’s broadcast. The event will run on the Quark by Clear Access internet connection, offering the fastest and most reliable connectivity to VALORANT players across the country. This not only ensures smooth gameplay but also keeps viewers connected to the live broadcast, creating an immersive experience for gaming enthusiasts and fans alike.

Powered by Gizzu takes charge of the essential element that often goes unnoticed until it’s crucial—power. Gizzu will be supplying backup units for both the gaming machines and the broadcast, ensuring that when the power goes down, the excitement doesn’t. With Gizzu’s support, The Carry1st VALZA Cup can guarantee an uninterrupted and electrifying gaming spectacle.
