What is the VCT Stage 2 Masters?
The Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) Stage 2 Masters held in Reykjavik, Iceland is the first international LAN tournament for Valorant.
Format of VCT Stage 2 Masters
The top-seeded teams from North America and Europe were seeded straight into the second round.
The remaining teams were then randomly seeded, as long as teams from the same region were placed on opposite sides of the bracket. This was done to avoid inter-regional matches.
VCT Stage 2 Masters follows a double-elimination bracket, with all matches played in a best-of-three format, except for the Grand Final, which will be a best-of-five series.
Bind, Haven, Split, Ascent, and Icebox will be eligible maps in the tournament. Breeze, the newly released map, has been removed from the pool.
VCT Stage 2 Masters patch
The tournament will be played on Valorant’s 2.09 patch, where Viper’s Toxin instant decays was adjusted, along with two 60-second timeouts, per game, per team, in Tournament Mode Custom Games.
