The Valorant Champions Tour is currently in Stage 2 and the Challengers Finals in North America are set to begin soon. The top two teams in the event will earn a spot for Masters 2 in Reykjavik.
Riot's competitive circuit for 2021 is working well so far with plenty of action in each of the regions. North America is still the region with the biggest organizations and some of the best teams in the world. The VCT Stage 2 NA Challengers Finals will determine which two teams from NA get to visit Reykjavik, Iceland for Masters 2. Let's take a look at the Challengers Finals and all the participants.
Stage 2 NA Challengers Finals Teams
A total of eight teams will take part in the NA Challengers Finals. However, only the top two will earn a spot in the international event that will be Masters 2. The full list of teams is already clear.
- 100 Thieves
- Team Envy
- Cloud9 Blue
Most of the big organizations are here except for TSM, FaZe Clan, Gen. G, and T1. Which teams are the favorites? Last month Sentinels had to bench Jay "sinatraa" Won and replaced him with Tyson "TenZ" Ngo. Ever since then, the team has been on a hot streak, winning Masters 1 and Challengers 2.
Another solid team to look out for from the region is 100 Thieves. The team took first place in NA Stage 2 Challengers 1 and won First Strike NA back in December. The rest of the squads have been too inconsistent in the past few months, but they're still a threat and pretty much anything can happen in the NA Challengers Finals.
