Valorant is on a quest to become the most globally recognized esport in the world, taking over one region at a time. Acknowledging the potential, talents, and contributions of the Chinese community to the esports scene, Riot Games has now added a fourth league to the iconic professional circuit: Valorant Champions Tour. This means that China has joined the other three major regions: Americas, EMEA, and Pacific. 

VCT China Stage 1 began on April 4 and will run until May 12, 2024, just before VCT Masters: Shanghai begins on May 23.

VCT China: Format

All international leagues in the Valorant Champions Tour follow the same format across Stage 1 and Stage 2, each with 11 teams competing. One team joins each league's franchised teams after winning Ascension. 

Stage 1 and Stage 2 are separated by international events, namely Masters. This year, the VCT Masters events have been held in Madrid and Shanghai. Sentinels won VCT Masters Madrid, while VCT Masters Shanghai begins on May 23, 2024. 

Group Stage 

The 11 teams are divided into two groups: Alpha and Omega. The former has five teams, while the latter has six. The teams play cross-group matches until they've played against every team from the opposing group. From there, there will be inter-group matches. All matches are Bo3 and the top six teams advance to the Playoffs. 


The playoffs will feature a hybrid-elimination format, where six teams compete. The initial Knockout Round is single-elimination, while the 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 both Bo5.

There is no prize money available for any of the VCT international leagues, although the best teams will compete to earn themselves circuit points. The teams with the most circuit points are automatically invited to VCT Champions 2024, which is held in Seoul.

Valorant Betting Markets

Rivalry uses decimal odds to showcase the probability of a specific outcome, like a particular team winning an objective or an overall match. For example, if Bilibili Gaming is listed at 1.25 odds, you could win 1.25x your original bet if they potentially win. This Rivalry Academy article further explains how to read different esports odds correctly. 

Please take a look below for some of the betting markets we have available for Valorant. 

  • Map Winner: Usually, VCT 2024 matches are played as best-of-three (Bo3) or best-of-five (Bo5) series. This means that games usually span across several maps, i.e., Map 1, Map 2, Map 3, etc. These Valorant betting markets let you pick each map winner using our live Valorant betting odds that constantly change. 
  • Match Winner: Exactly what it says on the tin. These Valorant betting odds are picked explicitly for the overall winning team of the entire match. 
  • Handicap: A handicap bet evens the playing field between the underdogs and the favored team. For example, if you bet on JD Gaming on -1.5 maps, they'll need to win 2-0 for your bet to be successful, or if you bet on a lesser-known team like All Gamers, they'll only need to win one map.

VCT China Betting Tips

VCT China is less established and well-known than the other Valorant Champions Tour leagues, like the Americas or Pacific. As such, it can be challenging to know who the top teams are and who to bet your cash on. Not to worry! Rivalry is here to save the day with our simple yet effective betting tips. 

Play the game! 

Valorant by Riot Games is a free-to-play FPS, meaning you can easily download and play the game yourself! Learn the meta agents, the ins and outs of every map, and stay up-to-date with the latest patch notes. Doing this will help you gain the edge over other VCT bettors and make more informed decisions, especially when betting during the drafting phase. 


As with any major events in the esports scene, we advise you to stay updated with all the latest roster changes, tournament histories, and recent performances. This may prove difficult with VCT China, as it's a reasonably new league; however, doing this research will help you make more informed wagers in the future. 

Favorite teams! 

VCT China is still in its infancy, so it's all up in the air regarding who the best teams may be. However, we can take into consideration their past performance before VCT China was officially established. For example, EDward Gaming qualified for every international event in 2023, and Bilibili Gaming made an appearance at VCT Champions 2023 with a stellar performance. 

Budget your bankroll! 

This may seem standard practice, but it's the golden rule for all betting. Always plan a strict budget for your betting session and stick to it. It can be easy to get carried away with the thrill of betting, but it's not great for your wallet! Don't go chasing any losses - you can always set self-exclusion limits for yourself or get in touch with our customer support team who can guide you through the process. 

Ultimately, our best betting advice would be to choose a Valorant Champions Tour betting site that is legal, licensed, and reliable. Luckily for you, you're already in the right place with! Create an account with us today,
