The Valorant Champions Tour’s (VCT) Challenger events are slowly coming to a close as teams have their sights set on making it to Masters 2 Copenhagen. Six teams are locked in for the playoffs at the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) Challengers 2 playoffs. The top three teams at the event will earn spots at the upcoming Valorant Masters 2 event, which is the first international VCT event with a live audience.
Three out of six teams will make it to Masters 2 Copenhagen
There are six teams that have made it to the playoffs of Valorant Masters 2 Copenhagen and they will be seeded based on their performances at the group stage.
Fnatic had an incredible run at the group stage with the team heading in with a clean 5-0 record. The team has been present at all major Valorant LANs and 2022 might be the year that it secures a championship.
Guild Esports, Acend, and Team Liquid won four out of their five games and are looking very strong. Acend won the 2021 world championship but it failed to qualify for Masters 1 earlier this year due to poor performances at the previous EMEA Challengers event. The team is back to its winning ways and has put on solid performances to make it to the Stage 2 playoffs.
