What is Valorant Premier?

It is a tournament game mode that is available in-game. Players can build a roster and compete in pre-scheduled matches against teams of a similar skill level. Each team will be placed in a division where they’ll battle it out for a shot at making it to the playoff tournament.

Matches follow the same rules as the competitive scene, with an emphasis on an online tournament structure. At the highest level, Premier will serve as the replacement for open qualifiers in VCT events.

How to sign up for Premier

  1. Go to “premier open beta.”
  2. Verify your account via SMS.
  3. Create a team.
  4. Enroll your team in your respective region.

To make your account eligible for Premier, just input your mobile number and verify it via SMS. You must also have completed the five competitive placement games required to earn a rank before you can continue with Premier.

Teams that register for Premier most have five to seven players, with each squad having an acting team owner. The team owner will be the one to invite and remove players from the roster, set the team’s zone, customize the team logo, and unregister the team.

If the team owner leaves, ownership will be passed to the next player who has been with the roster the longest.

Players have until April 28 to enroll their team for the first phase of Premier. After the opening week matches, a test tournament will be held on May 3.

Teams will play up to two best-of-one matches set to a predetermined map according to the Riot Games’ schedule.

Wins will earn your team 100 points, but you’ll still get 25 points when you lose. Teams that fail to compete for whatever reason will gain no points.

Teams that finish with at least 375 points at the end of the season will advance to the playoff tournament on May 21.
