Back in May, we organised the very first Mandatory Cup . It was an opportunity for the best Valorant players in Europe to battle. It was fish123, led by ec1s, who won the tournament. Today, we are pleased to announce a second Mandatory Cup as part of the Ignition Series: the IGNITION SERIES x MANDATORY.GG CUP !
The Ignition Series x Mandatory.GG Cup will bring 128 European teams to battle each other. The competition will take place from 31st July to 2nd August for a 15,000€ cash prize. Among the 128 teams, we reserve up to 30 slots for established professional teams and Valorant influencers.
After seeing the hype around our first tournament, we knew we had to organize a new one. It is an honour to be able to do so in partnership with Riot Games and to be part of the official Valorant competitive circuit. Our goal is to provide the players with an opportunity to demonstrate their talent, along with enabling Valorant fans to watch a competition of high quality.
We have only one rule regarding registration: every player must be ranked at least Platinum 1 in Valorant ranked mode. We wanted to keep the open format that allows both professionals and non-professionals players to meet, while making the tournament interesting to watch at every step of the competition. Unlike our first edition, teams won't be randomly drawn. Only the 128 teams with the highest average level will be selected. Registrations will open from July 17 to July 19. We will provide more information about registration and selection very soon.
Whether you are Valorant prodigies needing an opportunity to show what you are made of, or if you just want to test your limits in a major tournament, you are welcome to participate! You have a couple weeks to rank as high as possible on Valorant's ladder. We also expect established and professional teams to come and prove they are the rulers of Valorant!
As you can see, we want the Mandatory.GG Cup to be the theater of the best Europe as to offer. Our tournament should give a good overview of the main forces present on the European scene of Valorant.
The Mandatory.GG Cup will be livestreamed by professionals casters, both in French and English. ZeratoR , famous French streamer, will host the competition in France. Players will be free to stream their own POV on their channel until the quarter finals (included).
We will soon give more information regarding format, rules, registration, casters and invited teams. Stay tuned on Mandatory.GG and don't forget to follow our Twitter account to stay in touch with every news!
