The VCT NA Last Chance Qualifier will be the final opportunity for North American teams to qualify into the Valorant Champions 2021 tournament at the end of the year.
Sentinels is the only team that has a confirmed invitation to the tournament.
For teams that don’t have enough VCT circuit points, they will have to wait for the next VCT season to compete. With that, here’s everything you need to know about the VCT NA Last Chance Qualifier.
What is the VCT NA Last Chance Qualifier?
(Last updated October 13, 2021)
The tournament is an invite-only 10-team LAN event where the winner will walk away with a ticket directly to Valorant Champions 2021. To be invited, teams need to have earned enough circuit points in the VCT tournament season.
Due to COVID-19 regulations, travel documentation issues, and other complex factors, Riot Games could not ensure teams from the Oceania region could travel, compete in the event, and return home in a reasonable time frame. As a result, ORDER and Chiefs will not be attending the Last Chance Qualifier.
The top eight North American teams who haven’t qualified for Valorant Champions 2021, will be the participants of the Last Chance Qualifier.
