VALORANT Game Changers 2022 Series 3: Format, dates, and how to watch

Sep 13, 2022

Series 1 broke records in terms of signups, and saw G2 Gozen take the crown once again, carrying their winning streak into 2022. Hot on their heels were GUILD X and TENSTAR Nova, then an unsigned team, proving that Game Changers truly is anyone’s game.

Series 2 saw G2 steamroll their opponents to take the win, bringing their streak up to three victories in a row. The tournament also made it onto the main broadcast as a result of Series 1’s popularity, giving VALORANT’s women a platform few other esports have.

Can G2 Gozen continue their winning streak? Or will a dark horse rise and topple Berlin’s titans? Here’s how you can tune in to watch VALORANT Game Changers Series 3, as well as all the dates and format info you’ll need.
