BEACON is the VALORANT regional circuit focused on grassroots level play in Northern Europe. After a successful first year, we’re aiming to further improve the experience for VALORANT players in Northern Europe and provide a qualification process into Polaris for 2024!

BEACON Split 1 will provide the only method of qualification into Polaris for 2024.

We want to celebrate local competition and achievements as we assemble teams to play together and push our way up the VALORANT ecosystem!

How does it work?

Selected tournaments from February – May in the region are designated as Circuit Events and are official Beacon events. Circuit Events will be categorised into Major, LAN, Minor & Community Events. Teams that play in these tournaments will gain Beacon Points depending on where they place and these contribute to an overall leaderboard.

Major Events will offer the highest pool of Circuit Points for Northern Europe teams.
LAN Events will create inperson experiences for teams, offering more BEACON Points than Minor tournaments but less than Major Events
Minor Events will include National focused tournaments, showcasing the best of individual countries, including Iceland, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and UK.

BEACON Circuit Events can be found on the Tournaments page. More Circuit Events may be announced at a later date!

At the end of the split, all teams will be split into divisions based on the number of points they have scored across all tournaments relative to other teams and all will play in the Beacon Circuit Finals for the chance to win their share of €10,000 in prize money!

Division 1: 1st – 8th (+ bottom 2 teams of Polaris Split 2 2023)
Division 2: 9th – 24th
Division 3: 24th – 40th + Open Signups

Teams can score points in more than one of the Circuit Events* in order to increase their chances of qualifying for Division 1.

* Teams can only earn points from 1 LAN Event. (taken from highest placement)
