How to play Valorant Premier beta

The Premier mode of Valorant has three phases which are Enrolment, Weekly Matches, and Tournament Day. Enrllment is where players sign-up to participate in Premier.

To play the Valorant Premier open beta, you need to fulfil some requirements to grant you access to the feature. Players will need to first verify their account through SMS verification, be in a rank, and have finished ranked placements. Additionally, you'll of course need some teammates to play with for Premier. You can have a team of five to seven players for Premier. Once you meet these requirements, you'll be able to enrol in Valorant Premier open beta.

The owner of the team for Premier will be able to choose a time zone that determines the servers you'll be playing on. So make sure you and your team decide what server is best to avoid lag while playing. Additionally, take note that each team will be seeded into one of 20 divisions, determined by the average MMR of the team’s top five players.

Teams will then be able to compete in two matches per week. Teammates can check the schedule in the Team Hub. You’ll earn points per match, earning more points if you win. These points will be added up to see which teams qualify for the Playoffs Tournament. If your team qualifies for the tournament, you’ll be placed into a bracket along with other teams that qualified from your division. Like professional tournaments, there will be a map pick and ban system.

Lastly, if you win all you matches, you and your team will get some cool prizes such as the Premier Beta Champions player card and Premier Beta Champion title. While for the losing teams, they'll be competing in a Consolation Bracket for third place. You'll still be able to get an in-game title and player card if you compete in one match in this bracket.
