The VALORANT Champions Tour is in its home stretch with Stage 3 currently underway! All the regions are busy having their home teams battle it out for the right to proceed to VALORANT Masters Berlin, taking place September 9. The competition is especially heating up in Brazil, where VCT Brazil Challengers 1 just wrapped up. In addition to some familiar faces qualifying for the Challengers 1 main event, we also have a few surprising newcomers!

Who Made It Through?

After some grueling qualifiers, the eight teams who competed in the VCT Brazil Challengers 1 main event were:

  • Team Vikings
  • Sharks Esports
  • Stars Horizon (formerly B4 Esports)
  • NOORG 2.0 (unsigned, in case you couldn’t tell from the team name)
  • Gamelanders Blue
  • Havan Liberty
  • FURIA Esports

From this lineup, the two teams to make it out on top were Team Vikings in first and Gamelanders Blue in second. Team Vikings should be the winners in an event like this, considering how they previously represented Brazil in Masters Reykjavik. As for the other team that represented Brazil, Sharks Esports, they cracked the Top 4 in this event, alongside FURIA Esports. That’s enough to keep them alive, but we can imagine their fans expected better.

What’s Next?

In addition to a handsome sum of prize money, the Top 4 teams to place in Challengers 1 will be seeded into Challengers 2. The remaining four teams will have to battle their way to face these four teams again in the qualifiers of Challengers 2. Will we see any of these underdogs (especially the unsigned NOORG 2.0) again when Challengers 2 rolls around? We’ll have to tune in to VCT Brazil later to find out. Fans can do so via the official VALORANT Brazil Twitch channel!
