Fifteen teams will collide in a four-group group stage beginning on Sept. 10, with the top two teams from each group moving on to a single-elimination bracket. The winner of VCT Masters Three Berlin will earn one of the 16 spots at Champions, regardless of the amount of VCT points they’ve earned. All the teams that are participating in Berlin have an opportunity to secure a spot at Champions depending on the number of points they’ve earned, with the exception of a couple of teams like Sentinels and KRU Esports, who have already done so.
