Valorant Twitch Rivals Series 1 Format

The format will be Round Robin to begin with, before progressing into an elimination playoff. The full format, as described by Twitch, is as follows:

Day 1-2 will feature a group stage with 4 teams in each group playing a Round Robin tournament format. Each team will play two matches on day 1 and 1 match on day 2, until each team has played each other team in their group. All matches are Best of 3.

The top 3 teams from each group will advance to a 6-team Playoff bracket starting on Day 2, with the bottom team from each group being eliminated. The 1st place team from each group will receive a bye to the Semifinals on Day 3, while the other 4 teams will play in the Quarterfinals on Day 2.
