The Arena of Valor World Cup 2018 Boot Camp held this year in Thailand aims to create the rare opportunity for players to understand their opponents and get used to the pressure of competition earlier. This will serve to efficiently increase the strength of all participating regions and improve the overall tournament viewer experience. Star players of AOV from all over the world will meet and embark on a journey they are sure to remember.
