With the VCT Stage 3 Masters: Berlin tournament in just over a month, teams throughout North America are continuing to refine their play in order to perform exquisitely and book a ticket to the latest professional VALORANT LAN.
In order to reach the German capital, teams must first pass through the VCT Challengers Playoffs, which serves as a precursor to the overall main event. Through there, they overcome a score of rivals who are equally as hungry to attain international glory.
Unsurprisingly, familiar faces like reigning VCT Masters Reykjavik champion Sentinels have already set one foot into Berlin through their qualification to Challengers Playoffs. Surprisingly, the other North American representative from Masters Reykjavik Version1 is out of contention for the next international tournament.
Of course, one can’t forget the existence of underdogs who are looking to forcefully lay their mark on VALORANT with their respective runs. All these teams encompass a vast field that is concurrently aiming to dethrone the current kings and commence their own era of dominance.
As the seven presiding regions work to send their representatives for Masters: Berlin, here is a list of all the teams still in the running to qualify from Challengers Playoffs.
