Just guessing based on the info we have atm.

-If they go with 10 teams like iceland:
North America: 2 slots
EMEA: 2 slots
Brazil: 2 slots
Korea: 1 slot
Japan: 1 slot
APAC: 1 slot
Latin America: 1 slot
either KR or BR get 1 or 2 slots since the other regions dont have as much depth of competition (imo) in comparison to them

-If they go with 16 teams like berlin:
North America: 2 slots
EMEA: 4 slots
Brazil: 2 slots
Korea: 2 slots
Japan: 1 slots
APAC: 2 slots
Latin America: 2 slots
for the last they either give it to JP or APAC gets 3. most likely JP for consistency maybe? but idk

this is assuming that since APAC now includes oceania they might want to give them an additional slot and also japan hasnt been performing very well in comparison
PD: no way theyre going with 8 team format since they would unavoidably end with at least 9 teams cuz BR and NA are confirmed to have 2 slots

Just a bit of quick maths, your 16 slot option only adds up to 15, so easy last slot free invite for oce right? Surely

i guess good performance from KRU and Asian teams and bad from NA teams made them do that

NA having the same number of teams as Brazil and Korea should be a warcrime

Emea 0 bad region, Na -1 kekw, Br 2 riot high, korea 69 i like bts, japan 420 japanese cartoons are great , apac-4.3 billion (based on population) sea will take all spots, latam 2 (i think i saw it somewhere).

Is already confirmed that:
Na = 2
BR = 2
KR = 1
Latam = 1

#13

So then, it could be:
EMEA - 5
APAC- 4
JP - 1

JP doesn't deserve 2 slots imo

But if APAC get 4, people would be like "2 for NA and 4 for APAC?! They don't even deserve it".

They don't deserve 4 spots either, but JP having the same spots as NA is just blasphemous. They barely deserve their 1 slot, let alone 2

No need for LATAM to get 2. Isn't much competition aside from KRU

I belive they succes should trigger more chances for region. Like in football if one club in country get good scores in champions league or europa league whole country get points in ranking and maybe in future more teams can compete. Same should be in valorant imo. If region is playing super bad (like JP) they should get less slots and get them back if they start to perform. But from marketing/viewership point of view NA should have 4 slots lol

EU - 1 135 000$
NA - 555 000$
SEA - 145 000$
LATAM - 140 000$
KR - 135 000$
BR - 135 000$
JP - 55 000$

Based on this if we have 16 team tournament i'll go (winnings in 2021 season in 3 big tournaments by riot)

EU 4
NA 3
SEA 2
LATM 2
KR 2
BR 2
JP 1

Sry oceania

Thats better idea it would go like that
EU 4
NA 3
SEA 2
LATM 2
APAC 2
BR 2
KR 1

i belive sea and latam deserve 2 slots because of their good performance on champions. Korea kind of dissapointed (not nuturn in iceland)

#34

if its performance on champions, how in the world is it justified for NA to get 3 slots? (not saying they should or shouldn't since things like viewership should be considered, but by your logic it makes no sense)

#35

Not only champions but 3 tournaments that happend in 2021. They still won one. Its not like NA going to have one bad tournament and all of a sudden they get 1 slot.

"i belive sea and latam deserve 2 slots because of their good performance on champions"

you are clearly making your list by drawing conclusions from champions as you said yourself, am I wrong?

#45

Champions and other 2 tournaments. I pointed out champions because thats their best tournament

#46

You're using champions to justify why 2 regions should get an additional 2 slots. In that case idk how in the world NA would deserve 3 slots based off their performances in champions.

Point is, if Champions is solely enough to justify 2 more slots to 2 different regions (sea and latam have not done relatively well in previous tourneys), then Champions is more than enough to justify NA not getting 3 slots due to their relatively poor performance.

The current APAC region in Valorant is essentially "APAC South" from Apex
