Fnatics victory at the 2023 Masters Tokyo, opened up an additional slot for an EMEA Team for the upcoming Champions 2023. Tickets are on sale, and the venues are ready to host the remaining teams that aspire to join others in LA.

Which Teams Are In EMEA's Last Chance Qualifier

Team Vitality also qualified for the LCQ, but due to Twistens passing, they rightfully decided not to participate in the qualifier. No one could take Twisten's place in the team, and the players are just not in the right shape to play after their dear teammate and friend passed away.

Rest in Peace Twisten, the Valorant community will forever remember you ♡.

These are the teams that will partake in the 2023 EMEA Last Chance Qualifier:

TeamCountrySlot Origin
KOISpainEMEA League 9th Place
Natus VincereUkraineMasters Tokyo - Worst placed EMEA team
GiantsSpainEMEA League - 5th-6th Place
BBL EsportsTurkeyEMEA League - 7th Place
Team HereticsSpainEMEA League - 8th Place
Karmine CorpFranceEMEA League - 10th Place

Slot Origin is basically how the team qualified to have a slot at the Last Chance Qualifier. Since Fnatic won in Tokyo, the worst-placed team in Tokyo, got a slot. Na'Vi struggled big time in the group stage and got 11th Overall in Masters which meant they are the last team to go to Berlin. The others are basically the remaining teams that didn't qualify from their League.

VCT 2023 EMEA Last Chance Qualifier Format

Qualifiers will be played in a 6-team Hybrid elimination format. In this format, the teams that are seeded 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th will play in the Single Elimination Quarter Finals. The top two seeded teams will get a "def-win" and continue straight to the semifinal Upper Brackets. The games that are during and after the Semi-Finals will be double elimination.

The Lower Bracket Final and Upper Bracket Final games will be played Best of Five. Since two teams get the slot, there will be no need to play the Grand Finals, so the winners from the Upper bracket finals and Lower bracket finals will go directly to Los Angeles.

This is what the playoff table looks like right now.
