TOURNAMENT BREAKDOWN

Open Qualifiers are played across 3 weekends and each Qualifier is completed on the day. Each team may register for up to 4 out of the 6 total days.


Teams face off in a Single Elimination bracket and winners are determined in a Best-of-1 match. Teams also accrue points based on where they finish in the bracket at the end of the Qualifier. 


The top 2 teams from each Qualifier proceed to the Play-In Stage, joined by the top 4 teams from the Oceanic Valorant Open. Teams are seeded based on the qualifier they won, with earlier qualifiers earning higher seeds in the Play-In Stage.
