Valorant Premier SMS Verification


Valorant Premier is an in-client competitive mode that all players can be a part of.
Riot Games has made it mandatory for players to complete their placements and set up SMS verification to be a part of Premier.
Players can verify their phone number directly from the Valorant client and you cannot link multiple accounts to the same number.

Valorant Premier is an upcoming competitive playlist that is open only to registered players. The mode will allow players to create their own teams and compete in a structured tournament environment within the Valorant client. Riot Games has made it mandatory for players to enable SMS verification for Valorant and if you have trouble signing up, here’s what you need to know.
