If you watched hours and hours of Valorant streams but didn’t get into the closed beta, we feel bad for you. Heck, even Riot feels bad for you — or maybe it just wants to keep you locked in to viewing streams.
Riot is giving out an exclusive player card for players who watched “enough streams to be eligible” for the closed beta. How much is that? One hour? Six hours? 372 hours? Like most things connected to the watch-streams-to-get-access scheme, nobody knows. Keep watching, noob!
As thanks for all your interest in the VALORANT closed beta and hanging out with the @Twitch community, we have a small gift: an exclusive player card for anyone who's watched enough streams to be eligible for CB. Even if you don't get in, this'll be in your account at launch. pic.twitter.com/a1BV1DGVg1

As you can read in the Tweet, the player card, featuring a saluting Brimstone, will be available when the game goes live. At that point, you’ll theoretically be allowed to play it without propping up Riot’s Twitch viewership numbers.
