Gamer’s Guide to the Biggest Valorant Tournament

eSports tournaments have always been very popular among tactical shooter games, and the Valorant tournament will likely break all the ranks. Tournaments generally come only once a year – especially the biggest online tournaments – and they allow players to win the grand prize.

If you are planning to also join the Champions Valorant tournaments at some point, then let this article be your guide.

The 2022 Gaming Tournament Prizes

The prize pool changes every year for Riot Games tournaments, which also include Valorant. This year, the prize pool is set at around $2,600,000, give or take, depending on whether or not additions are made to the prize pool.
For instance, during previous League of Legends eSport events, Riot Games created crowdfunding events to sponsor the gaming tournaments. There is no clear saying that the same thing will happen here but given their history and the time left until the tournament, it is still possible.
Riot Games may also decide to add themed skin lines, weapons, or other special edition items on the line. This can further increase the prize pool.

Tournament Formats for Valorant Champions

The format for the Champions tournament shows little difference from the Valorant Masters tournament, with both of them having the players go through two stages: the group stage and the playoff stage.
The Valorant community is still growing, meaning that another stage may be added in the future – but so far, players are required to go through the following:

  • Group Stage

During the Group Stage, 16 teams will enter the battle. Those teams will be split into four groups, with the group teams having to play with or against one another. Only two teams will pass into the next stage after several elimination rounds.

  • Playoff Stage

The playoff stage will feature the remaining 8 teams from the Group Stage. There will be a double elimination bracket where the teams will be paired against one another until the Best of 3 will be chosen.

Valorant Schedule for Players

Before entering a tournament, you need to check the dates. Like every other eSport, there is also a Valorant tournament schedule that you will need to follow. Every year, those dates are posted on their platform.
In 2022, the tournament will take place between the 2nd and 18th of September, lasting just shy over 2 weeks. There will be multiple matches for teams to take part in, with each team having the opportunity to win the grand prize.

The Bottom Line

A Valorant tournament is a good opportunity to show off your skills and improve your teamwork. It is also a good place to increase your ranking so that you can become a professional player. Keep an eye on the schedule and have your team join together with you in a top event!
