Rules:

  • This tournament will be run on the bracketing site Battlefy. 
  • You and your players will need to create an account on Battlefy to compete in the tournament. Join codes for the VALORANT Challengers Open Qualifier will be sent out to the Team Captain's contact email after a team registers and their ranks are verified. Each team captain will be able to use the code given to them to register on Battlefy. Captains will then have to send the Battlefy links to their teammates and up to 2 subs so they can join the Battlefy roster. Subs will also have to be Immortal 1+ in competitive rank. When these steps are complete, the Captain will then be able to publish the team on Battlefy.

Format:

  • The official format for the VALORANT Challengers Open Qualifier will be a Single Elimination Bracket to the top 32 and Double Elimination from the top 32 onward - (all matches are a Best of Three). 
  • The bracket will be updated in real-time after each game finishes and each team reports their score.
  • Map bans, side selection and further tournament rules will be further outlined on Battlefy and Discord.
  • All team captains must be present via Nerd Street Discord throughout the tournament.
  • Live support will be available during the tournament via Battlefy's "Report Match Issue" on your match dashboard or by using the “Tournament Support” voice channel under NSG Online: VALORANT in the NSG Discord for immediate assistance from tournament admins.
  • Upper Bracket Finals and Lower Bracket Finals will not be played. Once we have our top 4, the qualifier will end.

Reporting Scores:

  • After each match is complete, team captains are responsible for providing a screenshot of their match summary on Battlefy and submitting their own scores in Battlefy on that same match dashboard.
  • After each match is complete, teams will be assigned a match automatically from the Battlefy platform. If no match is assigned immediately, your team will be waiting for your next opponent to finish their respected matches.

Registration Instructions:

  • Registration opens on April 14th at 10am PT.
  • Team captains are required to purchase the free team ticket and fill out the information for each player on their team. If a team fails to fill out the full information required they will not receive their join code for the tournament until they get another ticket and fill it out correctly.
  • Join the Nerd Street Discord
  • Team captains are required to join Discord immediately after registering. Each captain will receive a "VCT Captain" role which gives them access to see the VALORANT channels with further tournament info and updates.
  • Battlefy join codes and roles may take 24-48 hours to be updated. If you do not receive your role within 48 hours of registering, contact an admin in the NSG Discord using the #mod-mail system. After registering, Nerd Street will be verifying Riot accounts as well as rank screenshots for each player so be patient if you don't receive your code right away. If there is an issue with your screenshots an admin will reach out to the Team Captain in Discord.
