Raiders - 3rd Place GZGC24 Valorant Tournament team

GZGC24 Valorant Tournament Bracket

Valorant is a 5v5 strategic shooter comprised of an attacking and defending team. The attacker’s goal is to plant a bomb and defend it until it explodes or eliminate the defenders. The defender’s goal is to protect the plant sites until timer runs out, or defuse the planted bomb, or eliminate the attackers. Custom games can support any number of players on either team. Games are played on Valorant’s servers.


There will be a limit of 12 teams to register. Your team will be notified in person by the tournament organizer on-site as to when your team will play. If your team cannot join the lobby within 15 minutes of notification of the start time for a round, your team faces disqualification.

Exceptions can be made due to technical issues on the event organizers’ end.
