WePlay! Esports is hosting its first event in the Valorant scene, which is part of the Ignition Series. In this event, six invited teams will be joined by two Open Qualifier winners to fight for a prize pool of USD 50,000.
A total of 128 teams will be participating in the qualifiers, which will be best-of-one until the finals series in each bracket, which will be a traditional best-of-three. Those two teams will move into the main event, to face the pre-selected mix of rosters, including both G2 Esports and Ninjas in Pyjamas.
Here are the six teams that received those direct invites:
- G2 Esports
- Ninjas in Pyjamas
Anyone in the Europe/CIS region can sign up to compete in the open qualifiers, and the playoffs will be played in the usual Swiss bracket, leading into the grand finals at the end of the playoffs on the 19th of July. The winning team will walk away with USD 25,000 and their first Ignition Series title.
