Game Changers 2022
As mentioned, eight teams have been chosen to participate in the event, and Riot Games have recognized and picked these as members of their Valorant Partnership Program. The teams are known for their experience and competency, meaning the stakes will undoubtedly be high as teams represent their regions.
The Game Changers Championship will be held in Berlin this November, from the 15th to the 20th, to be precise. The tournament will feature teams from North and South America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and APAC countries. Keep up to date on the upcoming Game Changers info by following Valorant’s socials, official page, and Valorant Esports’ website.
What will the event look like?
The 2022 Game Changers will follow the best-of-three format until the finals, taking place on November 20th, which will have the remaining two teams compete in
best-of-five. The double-elimination system will be upheld throughout the competition.
The teams participating in the tournament are EMEA’s Guild X and G2 Gozen, NA’s Cloud9 White and Shopify Rebellion, LATAM’s KRÜ Esports, Brazil’s Team Liquid, APAC Elite’s X10 Sapphire and East Asia’s FENNEL HOTELAVA.

Can spectators get rewards by watching the event?
As with any Riot Games event, players can earn rewards throughout the tournament. Players must link their Riot Accounts with the platforms streaming the championship.
Players will periodically receive various cosmetics by watching the matches with linked accounts.
Players can check if their accounts are linked with the streaming platform, ergo, whether they are eligible for receiving rewards by looking for a checkmark while
attempting to watch a match. Broadcast drops will be awarded to players by tuning in anytime until the finals’ day and on the finals’ day. Additionally, the title ‘Game
Changer’ can be earned up to the finals, and the player card ‘2022 Game Changers Championship Card’ can be acquired during the finals match.
Those eager to see the event in person must purchase tickets through Eventbrite. But since the tickets became available on October 17th, there is a good chance that all have been sold out. In that case, players can apply to the waitlist if Riot issues
more tickets; however, there is no guarantee that the waitlist will yield results.
Where can I watch the 2022 Game Changers?
The Game Changers will be streamed on the official Valorant YouTube and Twitch channels to all supported regions and in many languages. Valorant Twitch will support more languages than YouTube, so watch the tournament there. As the first-ever global Game Changers event, it will produce a lot of hype, primarily since teams represent their regions.
Limited ‘Seize the Play’ Merch
For those die-hard Valorant tournament fans, Riot prepared a unique apparel collection offering a ‘Limitless’ hoodie and ‘All Eyes on Me’ tee. What makes the hoodie pieces unique is that each is dyed in its specific shade, meaning no hoodie will be the same. The merch will be made available from November 10th, so snag a piece for yourself before others do!
