Riot announces the host of VCT Champions
Riot will warp up the yearlong series of Valorant tournaments in Berlin. After Iceland in Masters Stage 2 and Berlin in Masters stage 3, Riot decided to take the LAN event in Berlin again.
The event will start on December 2nd and end on 12th December. After 10 days of the close and top-tier Valorant competitive matches, we will have our 1st Valorant World Champions.
A total of 16 teams will qualify for the event.
- 12 Teams will qualify via Masters
- 11 via circuit Points + Master 3 winner
- 4 teams via LCQs
Why Berlin again?
On their official website, Riot said, ” While our initial intention was to host each of our international events in a different region, we had to re-evaluate our plans as COVID-19 related complications began to increase. Our goal was to find and secure locations that would allow the greatest likelihood for qualified teams to attend.
Currently, European travel policies are the most favorable for bringing players from the participating VCT regions together, which presents the best pathway to produce a Champions event where all qualified teams can attend. Our priorities are to create a safe and globally inclusive event that fans all over the world can enjoy.”
