VCT Masters Reykjavík will set the stage in Iceland for VALORANT’s first international LAN event.

The 10 team tournament features representatives from seven different regions from around the world. 

North America, Europe, Brazil, Latin America, Korea, Japan, and Southeast Asia will compete starting on May 24 in a double-elimination bracket for a slice of a $600,000 prize pool.  All-important circuit points, which count toward qualification for VALORANT Champions, the year-end final, will also be on the line. 

To get you up to speed with the event, here’s a comprehensive guide to everything you need to know about VCT Masters Reykjavík.

Format

  • 10 teams
  • Double-elimination bracket
  • All matches are best-of-three, except the best-of-five grand finals.
  • Breeze, the game’s newest map, has been disabled for the tournament.
  • The top-seeded teams from the two regions with the largest player base, NA and Europe, have been seeded into the second round of the bracket.
  • The remaining teams in the tournament have been randomly seeded with the requirement that teams from the same region couldn’t be put on the same side of the bracket. This is so the teams avoid matching up against each other in the initial rounds.

Here’s what the bracket looks like:
