The event will enable the return of regional events and fans will also get to witness content-creator-only events throughout 2022. Here is everything that was announced by Level Infinite for 2022’s Arena of Valor esports calendar.

Regionals are making a return in 2022

The path to pro for Arena of Valor esports in 2022 will start at the grassroots level. Players will be able to sign up for the Amateur leagues and make their way through to the Semi-Pro and Pro Leagues, which lead to the Arena of Valor International Championship (AIC) featuring a prize pool of $2 million. But to make it to the top, teams will have to compete within their respective regions and earn championship points.
