We have seen incredibly impressive performances from VALORANT players in the Japanese scene, with Absolute JUPITER winning both Ignition Series tournaments organized so far in the region, the RAGE VALORANT JAPAN INVITATIONAL and the RAGE VALORANT JAPAN TOURNAMENT. In both tournaments, we saw Lag Gaming finish in the top three teams, which proves they are definitely contenders and are on Absolute JUPITER’s tail for sure. The latest tournament coming to the Japanese region is VALORANT Mildom Masters, with a ¥2,500,000 prize pool, which translates to roughly $23,400 or €20,100.
VALORANT Mildom Masters follows a Round Robin format, followed by playoffs for the top placing teams. There are eight teams participating in the tournament, namely Absolute JUPITER, SCARZ, REJECT, CYCLOPS, Sengoku Gaming, FAV gaming, SunSister Rapid, and ConnectGaming. Each team will play once a week in a best-of-one series, every Thursday, starting from August 20th, 2020 to October 1st, 2020.
The top four placed teams from the Round Robin stage will move on to the playoffs, kicking off on October 8th, 2020 with a best-of-one match between the 3rd and 4th placed teams to determine who is playing the runner-up. The 1st placed team from the Round Robin matches will move on directly to the Grand Finals on October 15th, 2020, playing whoever wins from the 2nd seeded team and the winner of the 3rd and 4th matchup. Both of the latter matchups will be best-of-three series to give us exciting and competitive VALORANT performances.
“I am very glad that we could announce VALORANT Mildom Masters. Mildom is a brand-new platform. We would like to contribute to making a basis for Japanese players by our platform so that they can achieve success worldwide. It is just a beginning.
