Valorant Champions Tour 2022 Details
The VCT APAC 2022 season will now include 2 more regions in South Asia and Oceania, bringing the total number of participating regions to 8. This inclusion also means that players from South Asia and Oceania will now fall under the APAC residency rule and will no longer be counted as imports.
The regions now include Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, South Asia, Oceania, Singapore/Malaysia, and Taiwan/Hong Kong.
The VCT 2022 season is structured around 3 global events – Masters 1, Masters 2, and Champions. From the APAC level, teams can expect to fight through a three-stage competitive format for the chance to compete at global events:
- Local Challengers: Teams will participate in local-level tournaments for a chance to secure a seed at the Regional Playoffs.
- Regional Playoffs: Teams that qualify for Playoffs will compete for Circuit Points. Those with high enough points will be invited to Global Events.
- Global Events: These international events come with prestige, high prize pools and massive Circuit Point pools.
Slot allocations per region are broken down as follows – Thailand / Philippines / Indonesia / Vietnam / Singapore / Malaysia with 3 slots, Taiwan / Hong Kong / South Asia with 2 slots, and Oceania with 1 slot.
