Champions is also the final event of the 2021 VALORANT Champions Tour and represents the culmination of the competitive VALORANT season. The victorious team will thus write their name in the history books as the first-ever VALORANT Champion.

Stars of the Show

Champions Berlin will be the largest international tournament to date for VALORANT. Each of the seven participating VCT regions qualified teams into the event through three different methods: VCT Points, victory at the final Masters event, and the 4 Last Chance Qualifiers.

Populating the Pool

The tournament will consist of GSL style group play, followed by an eight-team single elimination bracket. Firstly, teams were sorted into four draw pools based on a combination of their respective final placements at Challenger events and the strength of their region.

  • 1st Pool – NA #1, EMEA #1, KR, M3 Winner
  • 2nd Pool – NA #2, EMEA #2, LATAM, BR #1
  • 3rd Pool – NA LCQ, EMEA LCQ, SEA #1, JP
  • 4th Pool – BR 2, SEA 2, SAm LCQ, APAC LCQ

Next, each team in each pool was randomly drawn into one of the four groups (Groups A-D). If at any point a team was drawn into a group that already had a team from their region, then they were placed into the next alphabetically sequential group. If they are the final team to be drawn from their pool, they will be moved backwards through the groups until a valid group is landed on. Once a full pool has been drawn and becomes fully valid, the results of that pool are locked and cannot be moved.

Finally, pool 4 contains 2 Brazil and 2 SEA teams. Also, to avoid conflict, the #1 seeds for BR and SEA cannot place in the same group.

Going To Group Stage

During the Group Stage, teams will compete through a four-team, double-elimination bracket to identify two winners from each group. Firstly, teams from Pool 1 will face teams from Pool 4 and teams from Pool 2 will face teams from Pool 3.

After the Group Stage, a random draw will also seed the Knockout Stage. The four teams who will have advanced out of their group in 1st place will be randomly assigned a yet-to-be-determined 2nd place team from a different group. The teams then will play through an eight-team elimination bracket, with the first round seeing teams who placed 1st play against teams who placed 2nd.
