VCT 2022: Stage 2 Masters Participating Teams

Twelve teams that emerged as the winners and runners-up of their respective regional Stage 2 Challenger events are advancing to Stage 2 Masters. In alphabetical order, they are:

  • DRX
  • Fnatic
  • FunPlus Phoenix
  • Guild Esports
  • KRÜ Esports
  • Leviatán
  • LOUD
  • Northeption
  • OpTic Gaming
  • Paper Rex
  • XERXIA
  • XSET

No team representing the Philippines are participating in the Stage 2 Masters, as the top two teams from the country were eliminated in the VCT APAC Stage 2 Challengers last month. Instead, Paper Rex of Singapore and Xerxia of Thailand are representing the Asia-Pacific region.

Of the twelve, eight teams will first compete in the group stages. These eight teams are further divided into two groups. OpTic Gaming, Guild Esports, LOUD, and KRÜ Esports are in Group A. DRX, FunPlus Phoenix, Northeption, and XERXIA are in Group B.

The top seeded teams—Fnatic, Xset, Paper Rex, and Leviatán—automatically advance to the playoffs.

VCT 2022: Stage 2 Masters Prize Pool

The prize money to be given to the top performing teams is yet to be determined. Last year, the last Masters stage of the inaugural VCT 2021 season awarded the champion with $225,000 from the overall $700,000 USD prize pool.

All twelve teams will also receive circuit points, with the champion and runner-up getting 1000 and 750 points respectively. The worst two performing teams each get 150 points.

What’s after VCT 2022: Stage 2 Masters?

After this last stage of the Masters tier, there will be a Last Chance Qualifier in August. And then after that is the culminating Valorant Champions event at Istanbul, Turkey in September.

Sixteen teams will participate in Champions. Ten teams are determined through circuit points, and the remaining six via the LCQ.
