Similar to last year, teams will be fighting for points to qualify for the VCT Game Changers World Championship Event that happens at the end of the year. With all the points reset from 2022, all the teams will have three Game Changers events to collect as many points as possible. Here are how the prize money and circuit points will be distributed over the course of the season.

  • 1st: 80 points and $20,000
  • 2nd: 60 points and $10,000
  • 3rd: 50 points and $7,000
  • 4th: 40 points and $5,000
  • 5th and 6th: 50 points and $3,000 each
  • 7th and 8th: 20 points and $1,000 each
  • 9th to 16th: 10 points

Only the top 8 teams qualify for the Main Event of every VCT Game Changers NA series while 9th to 16th are the teams who made it to the final stages of the Open Qualifier tournament. How much prize money they receive for placing in the top 16 is undecided yet.

With Cloud9 White no longer in VALORANT, everyone in the league is looking to become the next Game Changers champion in North America.

Teams interested in competing in the VCT Game Changers Series I Open Qualifier can register through the Knights Arena website. Registrations will begin on March 21, 2023.
