The VCT APAC Last Chance Qualifier is set to kick off after the conclusion of Masters Copenhagen.

Top-ranked APAC squads, Paper Rex and XERXIA Esports have already qualified for Valorant Champions Istanbul via VCT circuit points, leaving a slot open for one more APAC representative.

The 10 qualified teams competing in the VCT APAC LCQ earned their spots based on their VCT circuit point standings. Each squad accumulated enough points in their VCT Stage 1 and 2 runs. All teams in the competition are the best performing and most consistent squads from their respective countries.

The two favorites in the competition are Bleed eSports and Team Secret, two teams who came close to qualifying for Masters events this year but lost out to Paper Rex and XERXIA Esports.
