Unlike other Valkyrie Dimension Events, you must pre-register for this one.

You may register now and submit qualifier scores from now until March 22ND 11:59PM EST. You may play the qualifiers as many times as you want.


Pairs will be determined by these factors:
1. Placement song scores
2. Past Placement and scores in Valkyrie Dimension (if applicable)
3. Life4DDR rank (if applicable)
4. Your registration responses


The ‘light’ and ‘dark’ sides will compete against their rivals to earn points for their team over a 4 week period. You may submit scores as many times as you’d like.

Rivals & Teams
• You will be matched up with a “mirror” version of yourself.
• This will be the person closest to you in skill level that also enters.
• Rivals will be curated by Valkyrie Dimension staff.
• You will be randomly put on either the “light” or “dark” team.
• Your “mirror” will be on the opposite team.
• No, you cannot request a team or switch sides with your opponent. Sorry!

• You and your rival will get two unique sets of songs.
• The first set will be revealed at the beginning of the event. You will receive the second set at the start of week 3.
• You can still submit scores for the first set of songs after the second set has been revealed.

Set A is 3 random songs in a range that makes sense for you and your rival.
Set B set of songs will consist of 1 song picked by you, 1 song picked by your rival, and 1 random.

• You do not need to play the songs as a set.
• You can play them as many times as you’d like in the time period given.
• You must take a clear photo of the EX score with your DDR name visible.

The main objective is to beat your opponent in the 6 songs, but you can also gain bonus points depending on how well you do. You are earning points for your team’s total.

Game Locations

You can play on a DDR Cab, gold or white, at your local arcade.

You can also play at home on Dance Dance Revolution Grand Prix, if you have the songs available or are willing to purchase them. If playing with Grand Prix, you must play on a standard sized dance pad. This can be official DDR dance pads, or 3rd party pads that match the dimensions (no mini-sized pads, keyboards, etc) such as a Cobalt Flux, SMX, Reflex, L-Tek, etc.

You cannot use Stepmania to submit scores, but you are more than welcome to practice on Stepmania.
