Throughout 2021, teams from all over the world competed with the singular goal of qualifying for Champions. A sequence of three Challengers and Masters events granted points to the top finishers at each event, with teams such as Sentinels and KRÜ Esports qualifying for VCT Champions early by dominating their regional competition.
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 favourable 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.
What’s next for the VCT?
