Qualified Teams for Valorant Champions Playoffs:
Valorant Champions 2022 started with a bump, and day 2 brought some exciting matches wherever we have a tendency to see totally different regions in action. We also got to know the first team to qualify for Playoffs, and it’s Leviatán from the LATAM region.
Leviatán grabbed the show by defeating Paper Rex with a perfect 2-0 victory. The former defeated the latter on both Haven and Bind without the need for overtime. The next VCT Champions 2022 Istanbul Playoffs will now feature Leviatán.

As a result of their 2-1 victory over LOUD, the master Reykjavik champions advanced to the playoffs. They maintained their reputation as the top club in North America and advanced to the playoffs. Despite a shaky start with a loss in the first game, they fought to win two consecutive games and the series.
With this ending, OpTic gaming has secured the No.1 seed from type B, where they will currently watch the rest of the group stage play out before the beginning of the Champions playoffs on Sept. 10.
