VCT Stage 2 Masters Iceland
The upcoming tournament brings the 10 best teams from around the world as seen in various Challenger events. Featuring a double-elimination bracket, this tournament determined the teams’ seeding almost completely randomly. The top two teams from North America and Europe, the regions with the most players, received a spot in the second round. Besides them, everyone else got placed randomly so long as teams from the same region couldn’t play against each other initially.
Boasting $600 thousand in prizing, a lot is on the line for teams to win. Besides the prize pool, VCT Circuit Points can also be won here at VALORANT Champions Tour Stage 2 Masters Reykjavík, Iceland. The winner of the tournament wins a whole 400 points, nearly setting up for seeding at Stage 3 Masters.
International VALORANT Esports
After more than 200 VALORANT esports teams tried to secure a seat in Reykjavík, Iceland, the real VCT event is about to begin. Held at the Laugardalshöll sports center, teams started arriving at the venue last week. This was to ensure a safe environment by providing ample time for everyone to self-quarantine. Representatives from around the world must now fight to see who is the best. Which region holds the strongest VALORANT esports team?
Get hyped and keep tabs on the teams that are competing in our first international LAN on May 24-30:
