VALORANT VCT Masters 3 Berlin
In the recent press conference, we had the opportunity to ask a few questions to the pros. Most of them are pretty confident about their teams going into the group stages
Unfortunately, Bren Esports will not be able to compete in Masters 3 Berlin. This is why Group D will follow a double-round Robin format to determine the two advancing teams to single-bracket eliminations.
The action will commence with the first matches from the group stages in Masters 3 Berlin. The matches will commence from 6 AM PDT, and Group A will inaugurate the tournament. This will be followed up with the second match from Group D.
Here are all the teams that will compete in Day 1 of Masters 3 Berlin:
- SuperMassive Blaze
- G2 Esports
