The Ignition Series is Riot’s first step in building a VALORANT esports scene.
The VALORANT Ignition Series is a series of tournaments created in partnership with players, teams, content creators, and tournament organizers from all over the world.
It’s Riot’s first step in building a VALORANT esports scene. And instead of major events or a league structure, it focuses on quick and easy tournaments run by third-party organizers.
The Ignition Series is produced for a wide range of regions, including North America, Brazil, Latin America, Korea, Japan, Southeast Asia, Oceania, Europe, Russia, Turkey, and the Middle East.
Each tournament has its own variation. Some include open qualifiers, showmatches, and invitationals with top players, while others highlight established personalities and streamers, as well as aspiring amateur players. Anything goes in the Ignition Series.
