The summer period of the Valorant Champions Tour is officially kicking off with VCT Pacific Stage 2, starting on June 15 with the Group Stage. The stakes are high as this all-important tournament decides which three VCT Pacific teams are heading to Champions while the other eight are sent home packing.

Currently, Gen.G Esports is waving the flag for VCT Pacific as the VCT Masters Shanghai winners, riding the waves of their success. However, in the regular season, anyone is fair game as strong powerhouses like Paper Rex and T1 are also hunting for all-important VCT circuit points.

Read on for our VCT Pacific Stage 2 overview, including the schedule, live standings, and all eleven teams competing.

VCT Pacific Stage 2: Format

All the international leagues in the Valorant Champions Tour have the same format for Stage 1 and Stage 2, consisting of the same 11 competing teams, a Group Stage, and Playoffs.

VCT Pacific Stages 1 and 2 are divided by international events, aka VCT Masters. Sentinels won in VCT Masters Madrid, while VCT Pacific team Gen.G Esports snagged the dub in Shanghai.

Group Stage (June 15 - July 8)

  • The 11 teams are divided into two groups: Alpha and Omega. The former has five teams, while the latter has six, based on their results from Stage 1, Masters Madrid, and Play-In. For example, Stage 1 Playoff semifinalists T1 and DRX are sorted into two separate groups
  • All matches are Bo3
  • The top six teams, regardless of their group, advance to the Playoffs based on their overall scores from Stages 1 and 2
  • There are no cross-group matches in Stage 2
  • The remaining five teams are eliminated

Playoffs (July 12 - July 21)

  • Hybrid-elimination format featuring six teams
  • Upper Bracket Quarterfinals are single-elimination
  • Upper Bracket Semifinals onwards are double-elimination
  • All matches, excluding the Lower Bracket Final and Grand Final, are Bo3
  • The Grand Final and Lower Bracket Final are Bo5
  • The top three teams advance to VCT Champions

While there's no prize pool available for VCT Pacific Stage 2, the teams compete to earn valuable circuit points, deciding if they get an invite to VCT Champions in August.
