According to investigative journalist Alejandro Gomis, Los Angeles, California, will likely serve as the host city for Valorant Champions 2023. Fans in the United States will now have the chance to see the event in their own country after the first two Champions events were held in Europe. According to Gomis, the event’s dates have already been set, and a formal announcement will be made later this year. According to reports, Valorant Champions 2023 will take place in Los Angeles
A significant turning point for Valorant esports was Valorant Champions 2022, and 2023 is predicted to be even bigger with the addition of foreign leagues. In February, the opening ceremony for 2023 will begin in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The Americas League, EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) league, and Pacific League regular seasons will all start after the inaugural event.
The number of clubs in international leagues will increase by one each year until 2027 when a cap of 14 teams would be reached. Teams that win Challengers Ascension will receive a two-year promotion into the international league in their region. During the Valorous Champions Tour (VCT) season, promoted teams will have the ability to compete against teams from other leagues, get equivalent league advantages, and have an equal opportunity to qualify for Masters and Champions.
Teams will return to their league to compete in Challengers and Ascension tournaments to earn their way back after two years. In the new configuration, the league’s qualification process has also been changed. We have a brand system in place of the outdated Challengers format. Challengers will include more than 20 leagues worldwide by 2023, ensuring that every Valorant player from participating territories can attend international competitions. The Challenger Leagues will offer highly organised contests that start with open qualifiers and then ladder the top teams into two splits of multi-week regular season play.
Making it through Challenger’s competitions and earning a spot in international competitions are the teams’ objectives that do not play in franchised leagues. Along with the worldwide leagues and flagship LANs, Riot Games will also keep expanding the well-liked Game Changers circuit and collaborate with outside tournament organisers for events all around the world in 2023.
