Forget Sentosa, Boracay, Jimbaran – Valorant’s Caribbean Breeze is the place to be

Share This Post

Imagine a tropical paradise. One where exotic birds roam the land and the sound of the waves crashing lull you into a state of clam. The sun. The sea. The sand. AND LOTSA FIREPOWER!

Grab your sunglasses, and lock and load people. Valorant’s new tropical beach map Breeze is out! Icebox has been a little too frigid (and even depressing) at times, so this sunny stage might prove to be a hit.

Last week, developer Riot Games had teased fans on social media with images of pristine beaches lined with coconut trees, and a stone-walled fortress with narrow corridors. Within hours, the hype train had left the station.

Many have been eagerly anticipating Valorant’s sixth map. Breeze features wide open areas around the beach while its interior zones are more spacious than usual. This is a move from the typically tight corners seen in other maps.


What’s more, there is a corridor that leads to an interactive trap door, which drops the player back into the open. It could be great for escaping a firefight, or a surefire way to walk into an ambush on the other side.

We can’t wait to try out the map today.


Competitors in the Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) had been given special access to the map on April 26. Riot also confirmed that Breeze will be a playable map in the VCT 2021: Stage 2 Masters, which will be held in Reykjavik, Iceland from May 24 to May 30.

Gamers can also look forward to a brand-new Battle Pass and the Premium tier Forsaken weapon skin bundle.

Meme Monday: Lighten(ing) your mood with these Neon memes

It’s been a few weeks since the release of Valorant’s newest agent, Neon, and she’s been a blast to play with (and against.) Naturally, a character as fun as Neon will breed memes equally as electrifying. Here are some Neon memes that are guaranteed to strike your funny bone.

Meme Monday: You’ve seen the Spider-Verse, now get ready for the Riot-Verse

It’s only midway through January and Riot is already treating us well with the release of two new characters: Neon from Valorant and Zeri from League of Legends (LOL). Even better, Neon is canonically Filipino, a huge win for Southeast Asian gamers! But we, like the rest of the internet, are seeing double – Neon and Zeri are practically the same person. Case in point: They are voiced by the same Filipino voice actress, have very similar abilities and look basically identical. We can’t help but think that Riot is trying to hint at something…a Riot multiverse, perhaps? It won’t be too far-fetched, since crossovers between both games have happened and Valorant’s storyline literally revolves around a second Earth from another universe. Alright, that’s enough speculation. This Meme Monday, we bring you PROOF of the Riot-Verse. Well, kinda.

Behold the multiverse theory! Neon and Zeri: one and the same?

The term ‘multiverse’ has been thrown left and right a lot lately. It’s been the talk of the town. While most have heard about this from the ever-growing Marvel franchise, gamers have noticed a similar happening in the esports scene.

I am Female. I AM also ESPORTS!

Firstly, yes, I am female. Yes, I have a masculine name. I love playing FPS games, especially team based ones like Overwatch and Valorant, which often require team communication in order to win. However, I rarely talk. Why? Because I am female. Just look up videos talking about or showing the female gaming experience on YouTube and you’ll know exactly why. Rude remarks, people making a big fuss just because I sound like a girl and people blaming me for doing badly solely because of my gender and not because of my lack of skill. The list goes on.

2021 was a bit of a Riot, will it continue?

As we make our first steps into 2022, we look back at 2021 as Riot Games managed to keep us sane during tough times. Eat your heart out Blizzard-Activision because Riot Games are coming up with new things one game at a time while you only rely on nostalgia trips and scrape the bottom of the barrel.
