For the VCT 2024 season, Riot Games has reintroduced the championship point system, the new qualification standard that will determine which teams will qualify for this year’s Valorant World Championship. Here’s how the system works:

League Stage gamesTeams will earn 1 championship point for each win during League Stage games.
Major EventsTeams will earn 3 championship points for emerging victorious in regional Kickoff events, Masters Madrid, Masters Shanghai, Stage 1 Playoffs, and Stage 2 Playoffs.

All teams will compete in their respective League Kickoff events, with the winner of each region securing 3 championship points. 

The top-performing teams in these events will advance to Masters Madrid, the first international LAN event of the season. There, they will compete for additional championship points, bringing them closer to qualifying for Valorant Champions 2024.
