Riot announces VCT Stage 3 Masters details
Stage 3 was announced as part Riot Games Esports Media Preview Day along with the video, outling VCT's next Masters tournament. It will be from September 9 to the 19th, making it the last of the three Masters events regions are fighting to take part in.
“We’re excited to continue to break new ground with Masters Reykjavik. In the run-up to the tournament, more than 2,000 teams from around the world participated in qualifying events, the most of any VALORANT event to date,” Riot Senior Director of Esports, Whalen Rozelle, said.
VCT Stage 3 Masters is also each team's last chance to qualify for Champions, which will be this year's biggest esports event. That will be sometime in November or December of 2021.
While awaiting the Champions event, fans can already start anticipating VCT Masters Stage 3 Berlin. After several regional Challengers events, the best 16 teams from around the world will compete in Berlin, making it another offline event. These have been rare to come by in 2021 thanks to the ongoing struggles surrounding the world's health and safety, making them high-intensity as regions finally come together for the first time to prove themselves without lag.
Where is VCT Stage 3 Masters Berlin being held? Will there be an audience?
VCT Stage 3 Masters Berlin promises to be the biggest VALORANT event so far. To match that epicness, Riot has chosen for the live event to be at the Verti Music Hall, which also hosted the 2019 League of Legends World Championship Group Stage. It can more than 4,300 people.
It's currently not known if fans will be able to attend the Berlin event. By September, vaccinations will be more widely spread. But it will also depend on CDC health and safety guidelines and how comfortable the esports organizations and teams are with the addition of an audience.
