VCT Champions will kick off December 1, 2021 with the top 16 Valorant teams competing for glory. The winner will be awarded the first Valorant World Championship. With three stages of the event and a Last Chance Qualifier running throughout 2021, the year-long Valorant Champions Tour event now has just 12 days left to go. With $1 million in prize money and a trophy on deposit, this will be Valorant’s biggest event yet.
Valuable Champion: Format
The tournament will include a GSL-style group match, followed by an eight-team knockout. First, teams were placed into four draw groups based on a combination of their respective final placement at the Challenger events and the strength of their region.
● Group 1 – NA #1, EMEA #1, KR, M3 Winner
● Group 2 – NA #2, EMEA #2, LATAM, BR #1
● Group 3 – NA LCQ, EMEA LCQ, SEA #1, JP
● Group 4 – BR 2, SEA 2, SAM LCQ, APAC LCQ
During the Group Stage, teams will compete in a four-team format, with two knockouts to determine the two winners in each group. In the first round of each group, the teams from Group 1 will face the teams from Group 4 and the teams from Group 2 will face the teams from Group 3.
After the Group Stage, a random draw will initiate the Qualifier. The four teams that break out of their group in 1st place will be randomly assigned a 2nd place team from another pool. The teams will then compete in an eight-team knockout format, with the first round seeing the first-placed teams play against the second-placed team.
The knockout match will then decide the fate of the final eight teams with a team topped by this year’s world champion Valorant.
