The path to VALORANT’s top-tier professional competition is getting a lot easier as Riot Games is bringing the VALORANT Premier system with the global beta launch.
Premier is the new competitive mode for VALORANT, where players can experience tougher competition compared to the ranked mode. Riot Games’ goal with VALORANT premier is to “present an even higher goal beyond Radiant that provides the most competition-hungry players with a rewarding challenge beyond ranked.”
VALORANT Premier will allow players to taste the true competition by playing against the best of the bests. Eventually, the system is designed to replace the current open qualifying system. Previously, Riot Games tested the Premier mode in Brazil servers. And right now, they are bringing it to everyone with a global beta release.
