Mandatory.GG Valorant Cup: Stream

As with previous Ignition Series events, the Mandatory.GG Cup was streamed on the official Valorant Twitch channel between July 31 – August 2, with the first round of the bracket kicking off at 11:00 AM (PT) / 2:00 PM (ET) / 7:00 PM (BST) / 8:00 PM (CEST). 

The tournament organizers will also have their own dedicated stream (embedded below). Most of the big names competing at the event were also streaming their POV on their own respective channels.

All 32 teams competing in the Mandatory.GG Cup were gunning to take home the lion’s share of €15,000 — and it was G2 Esports who made it three Ignition Series events in a row to continue their undefeated record.

Mandatory.GG Valorant Cup: Format

Six teams joined the 26 invited teams in the final 32. After a tough 128-team Open Bracket, the six qualifying teams had the opportunity to cause an upset and make a heroic run through the single-elimination Playoffs bracket.

Both the first and second round of the Playoffs were a best-of-one, meaning that there was plenty of room for amateur teams to make a name for themselves.

Both the Quarterfinals and Semifinals were best-of-three, while the Grand Finals between G2 and Bonk were decided in a best-of-five.
