With nine teams locked in for VCT Champions 2023, EMEA fans will have their eyes glued to the Valorant Champions Tour 2023: EMEA Last Chance Qualifier. Here, two teams will get a chance to move forward and compete in Champions 2023. Since Fnatic won VCT 2023 Masters Tokyo, EMEA got an additional slot for Champions. However, only one team from each region will advance from LCQ to Champions 2023 in the Pacific and the Americas.

VCT EMEA Last Chance Qualifier 2023: Tournament Format


The EMEA LCQ was originally a seven-team tournament like the Pacific and Americas LCQ. However, Team Vitality pulled themselves out of the contest out of respect for Karel "Twisten" Ašenbrener. With six teams playing, the first two matches will be knockout games where Team Heretics will play against KOI in the first match and BBL Esports will play against Karmine Corp in the second match. 


After the first two matches, the tournament will follow a double-elimination format where teams will get another chance in the lower bracket. Since NAVI and Giants Gaming were in higher positions in the EMEA League, they secured a higher seed for themselves.


The winners of the first match will go against NAVI, while the winners of the second match will play against Giants Gaming. All the games will be best-of-threes except for the lower bracket final and grand final, which will be best-of-five matchups.


The top three teams, Fnatic, Team Liquid, and FUT Esports from EMEA League have already qualified for the Champions stage, and the top two teams from Valorant Champions Tour 2023: EMEA LCQ will join them, making a total of five teams representing EMEA. 


The grand final winner will advance to VCT Champions 2023, held in Los Angeles from August 6 to August 27, 2023. The Shrine Auditorium will host the opening matches from August 6 to August 20, 2023. The top 4 teams will play the final games at the iconic KIA Forum. Fans can purchase tickets for Champions 2023 from Valorant Esports' official website
