The VCT NA Stage 2 Challengers group stage is already well underway, and fans of the shooter throughout the world are getting to witness their favorite Valorant teams duke it out for a shot at the upcoming VCT Stage 2 Masters Copenhagen which is set to kick off in July.
The first four weeks of the Challengers group stages have already passed, and only one week remains before the teams can advance to the playoffs for the event. While the teams have certainly displayed some great performances over the past few days, some teams have noticeably struggled to keep up with the others.
For instance, fan favorites Cloud9 and Sentinels had to bid farewell to the event after several disappointing games against the Group B teams. Both C9 and Sentinels found themselves at the bottom of Group B, with the former securing a single victory out of the four games they’ve played so far while the latter is still to make a mark on the scoreboard.
On the other hand, the top three positions of Group B are occupied by Evil Geniuses, Optic Gaming, and Luminosity Gaming respectively, with each team having secured three victories and one loss. FaZe Clan trails behind with two wins and two losses across four games.
Taking a glance at Group A, we can see that 100Thieves, Ghost Gaming, and XSET have already secured their respective slots at the playoffs. The final spot will be decided after the game between NRG and The Guard on June 12.
Here are the eight qualified teams that have managed to secure slots at the VCT Stage 2 Challengers playoffs. The playoffs are scheduled to start June 16th, and it will pave the way for two teams to secure their spots for VCT Stage 2 Masters Copenhagen in July.
