With the Oceania Tour: Championship coming to a close, the Oceanic representatives of ORDER ORDER Oceania Rank #1 and PEACE PEACE Oceania Rank #2 have booked their slots in the North American Last Chance Qualifier.
The two Oceanic teams, given no travel issues arise, will likely compete in the first Riot-sponsored LAN event on North American soil. Out of the cutthroat 12-team pool, only one team will proceed to Valorant Champions in Berlin.
ORDER — while not uncontested in Oceania — have made themselves out to be the best team in the region, filling the power vacuum left by Soniqs. The team were undefeated in the Oceania Tour: Championship, only dropping two maps to PEACE in the grand final.
But PEACE still reserve themselves a piece of the Oceanic pie, proving to be one of the most formidable teams in the region after the roster signed with the LCO organization in late June. PEACE previously met ORDER in the grand finals of the Oceania Tour: Stage 3 grand finals, and were eliminated by ORDER in the lower bracket final of the Oceania Tour: Stage 2.
The team list for the North American Last Chance Qualifier is now:
- Version1 Version1 North America Rank #11
- FaZe Clan FaZe Clan North America Rank #6
- XSET XSET North America Rank #5
- Luminosity Luminosity North America Rank #16
- Cloud9 Blue Cloud9 Blue North America Rank #4
- Gen.G Gen.G North America Rank #8
- Rise Rise North America Rank #9
- ORDER ORDER Oceania Rank #1
- PEACE PEACE Oceania Rank #2
The final team in the NA Last Chance Qualifier now depends on the final result of Masters Berlin, as the winning team of the event will directly qualify to Champions and effectively relinquish their spot in the VCT Points Circuit.
Sentinels are poised to take their second world championship title, which would qualify another team for North America and give TSM the final slot for the qualifier.
