The VCT Pacific Kickoff 2024 marks the return of Valorant esports, featuring the 11 partnered teams battling to qualify for Masters Madrid, the first international LAN event of the Valorant Champions Tour season.

Returning to defend their crown is last year’s Pacific League champion Paper Rex. The Singaporean-based team will have to make their run without their star Raze player Wang “Jing” Jing Jie, who stepped away from competitive play this year to complete his National Service. The compulsory duration of service is two years.

The Pacific Kickoff tournament features a new format, with teams competing in three stages for the two spots to advance to Masters Madrid.
