Everything you need to know about the VCT North America’s Last Chance Qualifier: Riot Games has just revealed all the details for the VCT North America’s Last Chance Qualifier. Let's have a look at everything we know about the tournament:
The tournament is set to kick off on 12th October 2021 and will end on 17th October 2021.
The VCT North America’s Last Chance Qualifier will be hosted offline on LAN. The event will not have a live audience due to obvious Covid-19 pandemic restrictions.
The VCT North America’s Last Chance Qualifier will be a 10-team double-elimination bracket where the winning team will make it to the Valorant Champions tournament which will be held later this year. The ten teams will be the top eight teams in North America who haven’t qualified for Champions plus the winner and runner up of the VALORANT Oceania Tour 2021: Championship.
Top 8 NA Valorant teams
Sentinels have already qualified for Valorant Champions. After Sentinels, Team Envy, 100 Thieves, Version1, FaZe Clan, XSET, Luminosity Gaming, Cloud9 Blue, Gen.G Esports and Rise Esports all have enough points to be able to take part in the Last Chance Qualifier.
Apart from Sentinels, the two other Berlin qualified teams, Team ENVY and 10 Thieves can make it to Valorant Champions by:
- Win Masters: Berlin and go directly to Champions
- Place high enough in Masters: Berlin where they secure the second highest amount of VCT circuit points in NA to qualify for Champions behind Sentinels (who’ve already qualified for Champions)
- Run the gauntlet at LCQ
TSM can take part only if a NA team win the Berlin major and takes their spot in the Last Chance Qualifier.
