Riot first provided the Valorant game access to the live broadcasters of Twitch and YouTube gamers in its beta form. Viewers of these streamers playing the Valorant game were randomly rewarded with a Valorant Game Installation Beta Drop. Following this success, third-party organizers developed the Code Red Valorant Tournament, which also exists for other game titles!
What is the Code Red Valorant Tournament?
A Code Red Tournament features top streamers from Twitch and YouTube competing against each other to win prizes & cash rewards. The Code Red Valorant Tournament participants are categorized into 8 teams, whereon they combat each other until becoming the Champion.
The Code Red Tournaments are organized by Boom.tv, which also hosts them for other game titles like COD, Apex Legends, etc.
Code Red Tournament Format & Brackets
All the Valorant Code Red matches follow the elimination format, playing out as Best of 1 (Bo1). On the other hand, the finale is a Best of 3 (Bo3) with distinctive maps, excluding the maps from the Bo1.
