Before Riot Games talked about the future of Valorant esports and changes in the competitive format in 2023. They mentioned a new ecosystem that will include an in-game competitive mode that will connect Valorant with VCT.

Today we get a glimpse of what that competitive mode will look like and how millions of players will be able to experience Valorant equally if they were a VCT pro team.

Valorant Premier Blastoff Test

Next week Valorant’s competitive team will evangelize an Blastoff test of that said competitive mode called Premier.
This test will be available simply to the initial group of players in the Brazil region.

From the words of Jon Walker, designer on the VALORANT Competitive team: “In its current state, Premier is near 60% of all the planned features and functionally, merely at that place are whole features that are absent in the current Alpha”.

The players volition test the following features:

  • Squad creation (with team logos and colors)
  • Server load
  • Tournament play (including a map pick-and-ban system)
  • Premier Score (and qualifying for the end-of-season tournament)
  • Matchmaking and queue health throughout the Alpha

What is Valorant Premier?

Valorant Premier Hub

Valorant Premier has quite a few features that will make yous experience like a pro histrion competing in VCT from the condolement of your dwelling house. And hither’s all nosotros know about this mode and so far.

Building Teams

You can build your own squad of 5 players of a like skill level (no data on how like). Yous will be able to create a team name, logo, colors, and a tag to stand out from the crowd.

And then your team will be placed in a division where you’ll play beyond a season of
pre-scheduled weekly matches and tournaments.

It is yet unclear whether you lot can supersede players throughout the season in example one of your friends is away. But we can imagine that Anarchism will add a substitute mechanic of some sort.

Tournament Flavor

Each season will last a few weeks. Your operation throughout the flavour will be tracked using the
Premier Score point system.

And at the finish of each flavor, teams may qualify for the end-of-season tournament to battle for the championship of Division Champion.

Valorant Map Selection-and-Ban Organization

Information technology seems that in Premier we will finally see the arrival of the map pick-and-ban system to Valorant. This feature was demanded by players for a long fourth dimension. But information technology seems it will be limited to the Premier for the time existence.

The Map Choice-and-Ban system will likely work the same style it works in the VCT. Riot Games already mentioned that there will always exist only 7 active maps in the Competitive and Unranked map pool so the teams volition take turns banning maps until the required corporeality of maps are left.

How to Play Valorant Premier

Equally we mentioned, the current Blastoff is but limited to the selected puddle of players. And then if yous are a part of the Alpha, you lot’d probably know that already.

As for when the residuum of the states, there is no set up date for the Premier mode release as of now. Nevertheless, because Riot’s plans for Valorant esports in 2023
we are likely to encounter Premier forth with the new Valorant Episode.

Based on the previous timeline of Acts and Episodes, we can wait to see Episode 6 roll out in early on January 2023.
