Riot Games has partnered with more than 20 esports organizations to create unique competitive VALORANT events as part of the new Ignition Series.
The G2 Esports VALORANT Invitational will be the first official Ignition Series tournament in a long line of events. The series will help the developers of VALORANT “build an esports from the ground up,” according to Walen Rozelle, senior director of esports at Riot.
Spanning across three days, eight hard-hitting European squads will fight for their share of approximately $16,780.
The teams will be divided into two groups of four and compete in a best-of-three single round-robin group stage. Group A will clash on day one, while Group B will play on day two.
