A Recap Of Valorant Challengers League 2024 Japan: Split 1 Until Matchday 4


Currently, there is one team who is undefeated in the tournament and it is none other than FENNEL. They sit at the top of the table with four wins to their name. FENNEL has a plus 50-round difference at the moment, and qualified for VCT Challengers League Japan 2024 from the first Open Qualifiers of the tournament. They have just lost 1 map in all their matches. One of the players to watch out for is SyouTa who currently has an ACS of 297.8 and an ADR of 189.


The team in second is none other than Reject. They currently have won three out of the four games that they have played in the group stage. Reject will be facing off against FENNEL on the 10th of March.


Three teams have won two and lost two games. These are Sengoku Gaming, VARREL & Northeption. In their match against Sengoku Gaming, VARREL triumphed in a close 2-0 series with the first map going to overtime. The maps ended with a score of 15-13 on Icebox and 13-11 on Bind.

Storylines To Watch Out for At Valorant Challengers League 2024 Japan Split 1


All the teams in Valorant Challengers League 2024 Japan have a 2-week break before their next set of fixtures. This would provide them with some much-needed recovery time. Last season, Scarz was the team from Japan to play in VCT Ascension 2023. They came second, losing only to Bleed Esports in the Grand Finals. Currently, they sit in 6th place. They lost their first 3 matches in the group stages but won their latest match against the 4th-placed VARREL.

FENNEL needs to win 2 out of their last 3 games to secure a slot in the upper bracket finals in the playoffs. The teams between the 2nd and 5th position will need to secure a minimum of 2 wins to increase their chances of landing in the upper finals. If Scarz can get back on the same run of form they showed last year and win the next 3 games, they might have a small chance to secure their spot in the playoffs this season.

The VCT Challengers Japan split 1 2024 playoff stage will be held from March 12th to March 20th. Matches are expected to be best of 3 series in the Upper bracket final, a best of 3 in the Lower bracket final, and a best of 5 in the Grand final. The Lower bracket final and Grand final will be played offline which will increase the level of competition for both players and organizations.
