ESPL India Valorant Power Up Qualifier Overview
The qualifiers will have 256 registration slots each, totaling up to 1024 tournaments across all qualifiers. Players will be asked to compete in a best of three format up until the quarter-finals. Four teams from each qualifier will be selected to compete in the 16-team main event.
Even if you do not have a team of your own, you can use the ESPL team finder to sign up and find a team that meets your preferences or create your own. You can also create a thread and post relevant information about your rank, playstyle, preferred roles, etc., and fill in at existing teams.
You can also use the official ESPL Discord Channel to find a team at https://discord.gg/3UHsz7U
After joining the channel, head to the Main Lobby text channel and choose your nationality by clicking on the correct flag. It will open the Team-Finder text channel for you, which you can use to find teams. Ensure that you input the correct game and in-game roles to get legitimate responses.
The tournament will take place in a GSL format where two winners and two losers will emerge at the next stage. The winners will play in the upper bracket qualifiers, while the bottom two teams will get a second chance to qualify from the lower bracket. Winners from the lower bracket will compete against upper bracket players to qualify for the final rounds, while upper bracket winners get a direct qualification to the next stage.
