This system is rumored to be surfacing either during or at the end of Episode 5, Act 3. Meaning, that between Oct. 18 and roughly Jan. 11, fans will get this new tournament mode to battle it out in a series of matches to see who really is on top.

Alongside the recent agent news, this would be a massive game mode to implement for the title. It was originally discussed midway through 2021, with the developers sharing their plan to implement the mode in the future.

How is VALORANT’s tournament mode going to work?

The developers shared that they were modeling it off the League of Legends Clash mode “but more details needed to be ironed out.”

It would be 5 stack teams against each other, with each win progressing players through the tournament brackets. But, players might have the option to have two reserve players to switch out from the bench if necessary.

The single-elimination tournament would give players the chance to play against other players in their region, with the winners getting more rewards as they progressed. 

Recent leaks have suggested this aligns with our predictions, with trusted VALORANT leaker ValorLeaks saying: “Tournaments seem to be prepping to launch with the next Act or Very Soon.”

So VALORANT fans will have to get their teams together soon and get practicing so they can make it to the Tournaments finals and prove they’re the biggest ranked heroes.
