Understanding of the game is still evolving, and there's plenty of room for new and exciting ideas to take the stage. The Ignition Series is definitely setting up a standard of play for VALORANT, the likes of which we've never seen before, and will undoubtedly begin to influence competitive audiences in their decisions around play.

Dates & format

The Open Qualifier will take place from July 13-14, featuring two single-elimination brackets. 128 teams will take each other on in Best-of-1 matches, while the final series in each qualifier will be a Best-of-3 affair.

The main event will see all eight teams compete in a swiss bracket Group Stage that will run from July 15-17. Only four teams will advance to the Playoffs, with the Group Stage winners seeded into a single-elimination bracket. The Semifinals will follow on July 18, leaving July 19 for the grand finale.

So if you’ve got a team and think you have what it takes to compete at the highest level of VALORANT, sign up for the Open Qualifiers at the links below and prove you have what it takes.
