The VCT Americas regular season is almost coming to an end, with the final six teams that will compete to play at Masters and Champions still to be decided.
Valorant Masters Tokyo is fast approaching and competition in the VCT Americas League is heating up, with six spots for the playoffs up for grabs amongst the 10 franchised teams.
Reaching the top three in the playoffs will grant teams a spot in both Masters Tokyo and Valorant Champions, while the remaining seven will still battle for an extra fourth spot at Champions via a Last Chance Qualifier.
VCT Americas Playoffs - Qualified Teams
We'll be updating this article as more teams are confirmed as qualified for the playoffs. Thus far, as of week 5, the squads competing are:
The two top teams that make it into the playoffs as higher seeds will bypass the first round of the playoffs, qualifying for the Upper Bracket Semifinals directly.
This is a massive boost as that means they'll only have to win a single match to qualify for Champions and Masters Tokyo without the stress of the Last Chance Qualifier.
The remaining four will start competing in the Upper Bracket Quarterfinals. It'll be a double-elimination bracket, meaning that a team could need to play up to five matches to qualify by reaching the Lower Bracket Finals.
VCT Americas Playoffs - Schedule
The Playoffs are set to start three days after the regular season ends (May 20) on May 23.
The finals are set to be played on May 28 so it's going to be a jam-packed schedule with plenty of high-stakes and exciting games of Valorant for fans to enjoy.
And that's it! Who will you be rooting for?
