Riot confirming slot allocation for the VCT Masters and Champions

This year, Masters events will feature the top twelve teams from the regional Challengers competition, down from 16 slots reserved for last year’s Masters 3 Berlin. According to Riot’s statement, each region is guaranteed at least one spot.

Southeast Asia will be given one extra spot. It is more than the previous year’s allotment of only one slot in the previous two Masters, taking into consideration the fact that Oceania is now part of the Asia-Pacific (APAC) area instead of North America. Additionally, South Asia will now have a direct pathway to Masters and Champions through the APAC Playoffs.

EMEA and North America will be getting one lesser spot. Brazil, Latin America, Korea, and Japan have been allocated one spot. With Brazil and Latin America sharing an additional slot that each region’s teams will fight for prior to each Masters tournament.
