How to register for Valorant Premier Global open beta?

To register for Valorant Premier Global open beta, you will need to enroll your team during the Enrollment period. Each team can have seven players at most. You can either form your own or join one to be free from all the hassle.

You’ll need to fulfill a couple of requirements to play the open beta:

  1. Verify your mobile number using via SMS.
  2. Complete your ranked placements at any point in your account’s lifetime.

Once these two steps are done and the roster is set, the team owner will enroll the team by selecting the Zone in which you will play. This Zone will determine the servers and the schedule of the matches.

There will be 20 divisions in total, and your team will be seeded into one of those, depending on the team’s average MMR of its top five players.

Valorant Premier Global open beta format

Your team will be scheduled to play two matches each week. The Team Hub will have everything – the schedule, map rotation, and queue-up. All matches will have a map pick and ban system, just like VCT.

With each match played, your team will earn points that will add to the Premier Score. The Premier Score of your team will determine whether it will make it to the Playoff Tournament or not. The more matches your team wins, the more points you will gain. However, no points will be added if your team doesn’t play one.

  • Earn 100 points for each weekly match win.
  • Lose 25 points for each weekly match loss.
  • No points are awarded during Tournament matches.

The Playoff Tournament will be scheduled for the last day of the beta.

Valorant Premier Global open beta rewards

Every participant will be awarded an in-game title and player card after competing in at least one match. If your team is the crowned champion – a unique player card and title will be reserved just for you.

And as Laura La Vito, Valorant Premier’s lead producer says, “There’s no Premier without everyone bringing their best.”

So, there you have it — that’s how you can play Valorant Premier open beta and compete your hearts out with your team.
