VCT: APAC Qualifier to start, Global Esports in contention

– Advertisement –

The Last Chance Qualifier of the Valorant Champions Tour circuit in the Asia-Pacific region is all set to begin from October 11 with a total of eight teams in contention towards the lone spot at the Valorant Champions event, to be held later this year in Berlin. 

The LCQ is an invite-only tournament where the participants are determined based on their circuit points on the VCT Leaderboard. Crazy Raccoon, X10 Esports and Team Secret have already punched their ticket to the Champions event in Berlin alongside Team Secret(initially BREN Esports)who made it through to the marquee event of the game on the basis of their circuit points standings. We would now see Paper Rex and Global Esports join the rest eight teams to contest for the final passage towards the Champions.

Earlier in September, ZETA Division along with other Chinese teams decided to pull out from the tournament citing logistical issues as the slots were redistributed among the Korean and Japanese regions, paving the way for the teams who held the most circuit points and didn’t qualify. In addition, team ZETA Division was also replaced by the next immediate member on the circuit points leaderboard.

The current LCQ team allocations are as follows in wake of the above changes post the Stage 3 Masters in Berlin:

  • SEA : 3 Teams
  • Japan : 3 Teams
  • Korea : 3 Teams
  • South Asia (India, Pakistan & Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka & Maldives, Nepal & Bhutan): 1 Team

In less than an hour, 10 teams will battle out the LCQ to clinch the lone spot at the Champions. Below attached is the list of the teams along with their qualification details.
