Ascend is the World's First Valorous Champion, and Agent 19 was teased throughout the finals as well.
The first-ever Valorant Champions Tour has been completed, with Ascend emerging victorious, establishing them as Valorant's inaugural World Champions. Riot's past competitions for the game have been regional - EU and NA – in nature.
The final match between Gambit and Ascend was a thrilling affair in which both teams gave it their best, but Ascend came out on top in the end. Valiant Champions' inaugural season began on December 1 and included 16 of the greatest esports teams from around the world competing for esports supremacy. If the first season is any indication, fans can expect fierce competition in every season of Valorant Champions after that.
During the Finals, Agent 19 teased that Ascend will be the first-ever Valorant World Champions.
Riot teased the debut of the next Agent in Valorant during the VCT ChampionsFinals, and it was vague, to say the least. It'll be interesting to see what kind of powers the new Agent has and whether or not they significantly alter the game's meta. The teasers hinted to the Agent's origins, which appear to be rooted in the Philippines, prior to the actual reveal.'
