With VCT Champions 2022 on the horizon,  just six spots are left undecided as VALORANT teams from around the world prepare themselves for the main spectacle of the year.

Currently, 10 out of the 16 teams have already been determined with the last six spots at VCT Champions 2022 set to be fought for during the VALORANT Champions Tour: Last Chance Qualifier.

With 42 teams across five different regions competing for just a few spots, the five different VCT Last Chance Qualifiers have set the stage for an exciting week of VALORANT. The stakes are all set for each team as this is their final opportunity to find success in extending their season or having their seasons cut shy of the biggest tournament of the year.

As excitement continues to grow for the all-out brawl, the primary question running through people’s minds is when exactly does the VCT Last Chance Qualifier.
