The VCT Game Changers Championship starts on November 15 and will feature some of the greatest female-led teams from across the world lock horns.
Riot Games developed Valorant Champions Tour Game Changers to provide additional chances and exposure for women and other underrepresented genders in Valorant esports. The competitive Valorant community is vast and multinational, and Game Changers emphasizes this.
The inaugural international women’s VALORANT LAN event will include eight teams competing over six days for a $500,000 prize pool. Every match will be played using the best-of-three format, with the exception of the championship match, which will use the best-of-five format and take place on Sunday, November 20.
Shopify Rebellion GC, also from North America, will be joining Cloud9 White as a participant in the Berlin event. Shopify Rebellion GC qualified for the tournament by amassing enough Circuit Points in second place behind Cloud9 White.
