I usually hear this from emea, who will say that they deserve more slots cause their better, but if emea is so much better why do they require 4 slots? surely 3 would be enough to win.
People always whine and moan about how some regions suck and are boring to watch, but how can they improve if they dont attend lans. Its actually so dumb, more teams = better competition. Pls stfu about this whole "x region deserves more/less slots" it doesnt fucking matter.

Look at last year kekw all 4 of our teams in Champs finished their groups in first place so a 4th spot would mean we would be sending more teams that are actually good

If you really think na is a one team region than na sending more teams would be good for emea.
#1 we would embarress ourselves and you could make fun of us
#2 more teams = larger bracket = more emea games
#3 Na teams would slowly get better and the games would become more enjoyable to watch

#16

But Emea having more slots would mean more teams would get a chance to prove themselves to be top tier teams as Emea is extremely contested right now so sending 3 in Emea is nothing when in Cs majors they send 8 EU teams

I think there should be more slots for every region anyways

firstly riot will fuck the seeding up again and put 3 emea teams on the same side of the bracket(playoffs) so that we eliminate ourselves and fuck the competetion. we have been making fun of na since berlin last year, first sentinels fell off then guard choked and now xset, honestly it has gotten so boring , coz na being bad is no longer funny but just a fact. na teams wont get better until next year when they would have to finally meet the br and latam teams so they can see the difference of how fast an SA team gets better and how slow and lazy a na team is

not fair for the teams that are 4th or something in emea, they can do a lot of damage in champs but have to sit at home just for furia to go 0-2 and not win a map

Shut the fuck up. Are you really going against a team, who had to play with 60 ping throughout the whole tournament AND were free agents at the time?? I know it’s crazy to fathom but m3c would body everyone at lan and you know it. If it wasn’t for the 60 ping difference. But riot continues to nerf emea and cis.

But who are the VCT Champions?

Yes, that's right, EMEA.

Might as well be VCT EMEA with how when EMEA teams aren't shafted (See also, VCT Masters 1 Reykjavik where FPX were subbed out for Liquid, FNATIC had to play with 2 subs and G2 underperformed while also being like, top 6 in EMEA regionally.) we always win or make top 2. (See also, VCT Masters 2 Copenhagen Winners, VCT Champions Berlin 2021 3/4s of Semifinalists being EMEA teams, VCT Masters 3 Berlin where 2/4ths of Semifinalists were EMEA, and a tournament we also won and VCT Masters 2 Reykjavik where we made Grand Finals.)

Meanwhile Bronzil, Lnited Ltates of Lmerica and Always Airport Always Poor's cabinet of accolades do not come close to EU's, also all of these regions I mentioned are 1 team regions. (Bronzil LOUD dominating, Lmerica OpTic dominating, APAC PRX dominating) while the competition in EMEA is always higher. No fair that teams like Guild, M3C and underdogs like BBL have to stay at home while teams like FURIA, XERXIA and XSET get to play at events only to go x-2 in groups and get eliminated.

Minor regions dont deserve that many slots. Riot is intentionally nerfing EMEA and NA so that minor regions can win something for once

Expected answer from EU guy. Yeah asian scene is more worse than NA or EU that's why I said riot might give them a chance to improve their scene. Beside, less slots=more competition. Less slots=Only NA's/EU's strongest will qualify.

Clout especially is so important for EMEA since they don’t stream or, have “personalities” (not in a rude way, in a streaming personality way) + no one watches eu streams anyway

#47

Im aware that m3c is better than alot of teams at champions. But my point is that champions is a great opportunity for teams to improve significantly by scrimming against the best teams from whatever region its being hosted in and playing against top international competition. By giving furia an opportunity to go to champs you not only give furia the chance to get better and perhaps become better than m3c, but you also expose the teams they play to their playstyle and setups, allowing their to be a positive feedback loop of improvement

sorry to break it you but mixwell is 10k streamer and scream is also somewhere around or a bit less. nats streams with 5k. and getting more viewers doesnt mean they are entertaining. they just stream a lot less. who would you tune into, a hiko who streams daily and you know you can watch that guy live at 6 pm every day or wait for a boaster who has a very nice personality and is a really good streamer but only comes live once a week? its not about that they are not entertaining, its just that they dont stream, they are athelets not streamers.

next year we are getting 3 leagues
1) americas: NA, BRAZIL,LATAM
2)ASIA: JAPAN, KOREA, CHINA, SEA, SOUTH ASIA, AUSTRALIA
3) EMEA: EUROPE ,MIDDLE EAST, AFRICA,CIS
each of these leagues will get 10 slots each(as of the leaks).
now considering every leagues is treated equally, for a tournament like masters next year, we'll get equal representation from all the regions, which means 4 teams from America, asia and emea all qualify to make a tournament of 12 teams.
now what is happening in this champions:
1) NA + LATAM+BRAZIL =7 SLOTS
2) SEA+CHINA+KOREA+JP=6 SLOTS
3) EMEA=3 SLOTS
NOW OPEN YOUR EYES AND TELL ME THIS SLOT DISTRIBUTION IS NOT FUCKED UP, I CAN TAKE NOT GIVING 6 SLOTS TO EMEA, BUT WE ATLEAST DESERVE 4 WHEN WE HAVE CLEARLY PROVEN THAT WE ARE THE STRONGEST LAST YEAR AND THIS YEAR TOO.

AND STOP GIVING SHITTY EXCUSES THAT WE(NA) IS A WEAK REGION AND WE'LL GIVE YOU FREE WINS, WHAT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN?? AND MORE EMEA TEAMS DO MATTER, IF WE GET 4 TEAMS WE'LL ENSURE THAT WE GET ANOTHER ALL EMEA TOP 4, WE NEED TO HUMBLE TEAMS LIKE OPTIC LOUD ETC WHO GOT AWAY WITH HIGH FINISHES JUST BECAUSE WE DIDNT HAVE EMEA TEAMS THAT TIME.

  1. It's not fucked up since they are basically 2 regions

  2. The slots are allotted this way to balance the potential of each region equally increasing the potential of a Cinderella run

  3. The international competition is increasing as gaps between regions are decreasing tremendously

  4. How many more reasons do I have to come up with so that ppl understand why it is this way

Nah, in all seriousness, for riot maybe it's more important the viewership teams bring, and as far as i know, Valorant still isn't THAT popular in Europe and CIS (may be wrong, i'm pretty sure that was the case in 2021)
