The VALORANT Premier Global Open Beta launches April 25th and to take part you will need to find a team. Here's some of the basic information you and your team need to know to be ready on day one.
How does Premier Global Open Beta work?
The Open Beta takes place in 3 stages. Let's take a look at how each phase works.
- Enrollment (Apr 25–28)
- Weekly Matches (Apr 29–May 20)
- Playoff Tournament (May 21)
Who can compete in Premier?
As long as you have a VALORANT account in good standing and you complete the 3 requirements below - you can take part in Premier.
- Confirm your identity with SMS verification.
- Complete a Ranked Placement (during any act ever)
- Find a team...
To compete in Premier, a team needs 5-7 players. You can form your own or join an existing one. So, start thinking about who you'll play with.
Don't have enough players to team up with? No worries! You can find others who want to compete in Premier on TEAMS.gg.
If you already have a TEAMS profile, tell everyone you're searching for a Premier team by heading to the 'Events' page and adding 'Premier Open Beta' to your profile.
If you're new to TEAMS, go to TEAMS.gg/event/premier to create your VALORANT profile and match with other players like you.
Once your roster is set your team owner can enroll the team and select your zone. Your zone determines which servers you play on and when matches will be scheduled.
Your team will be seeded into one of 20 divisions based on the average MMR of your top 5 players. Now... You're ready to compete!
Each week you'll play up to 2 matches. View the schedule, map rotation and queue for your next match from the Team Hub.
Each match earns points towards your Premier Score. (More for winning, none if you don't play!)
Your Premier Score determines if you qualify for the Playoff Tournament.
On the last day of the beta. If you've fought hard enough and your Premier score is high enough you'll make it to the tournament phase for your Division. GZ.
Each match uses a map pick and ban system (similar to pro play)
Each team starts in the main bracket. If you lose, your team moves down to the consolation bracket and compete for 3rd place.
If you win all your matches you'll be crowned champions and get a unique player card and title!
The Full Launch of VALORANT Premier
Following the Beta, the next phase of Premier will start in July 2023 and the full launch is planned for August 2023, just after VCT Champions.
This beta is only a test version of Premier, using a shorter schedule. At launch, Premier stages will be designed to last the duration of a regular VALORANT Act.
