Welcome to the CEA Valorant Spring 2023! There are 5 regional divisions. Your performances from each week help seed you into Playoffs after your 5 week group stage season. Please note that multiple teams from the same school can partake in the tournament, with a maximum of 3 teams.
For more information, please check out the Handbook.
Schedule and Format
Participating schools will be seeded into one of the 5 regional divisions based on the location of the school. Teams within their region will play against other teams in the division in a swiss format. Group-stage matches follow a best of 3 format. Playoff matches will maintain the best of 3 format until the Grand Finals, where a best of 5 will take place to determine the champion. The default match time is every Friday at 8:00 pm ET each week. However, teams are free to reschedule their matches if they are reported by the first Sunday after the play week at 11:59 pm ET. At the end of the group-stage phase, the top half in each division will move onto Playoffs. For more information, please check out the schedule sheet.
