The first day the Valorant Closed Beta has gotten off to a bit of rocky start. The servers experienced some issues at the start of the beta, but Riot Games did manage to resolve them quickly. Since then, players from across the world have been able to enjoy Valorant for the first time. Of course, there are millions of others watching at home hoping for a Twitch Drop. If you fall into this category, you’re certainly not alone. However, there’s a way to pass the time easier, and it’s by watching the Twitch Rivals event.
Where to watch the Twitch Rivals event for Valorant
Though we’ve already seen a Twitch Rivals event for Valorant, that was pre-recorded by streamers. This time around, it will be live and take place in two different regions. There are high-profile streamers, esports pros, and content creators competing, so it should be a fantastic viewing experience.
If you want to watch this event, you need only head on over to the Twitch Rivals channel. Alternatively, you can watch one of the many participating streamers. However, you’ll want to make sure whoever you watch has Twitch Drops enabled. This gives you a better chance of securing beta access if you haven’t gotten it already.
The event will be 5v5, just like normal Valorant, and will use the standard game mode rules. This should be fairly close to what an actual competitive match of Valorant will look like. Below, you can find the teams competing in the North American region along with the members of those teams.

The European region’s tournament has already begun, with the NA portion set to start at around 5:00 p.m. ET. Though, it looks like that timeframe will be a little premature. As such, you can likely expect the North American event to begin closer to 5:30-6:00 p.m. ET.
