Following the public's confusion of a lack of planned VCT EMEA coverage, Riot Games has given many extra channels broadcasting rights to cover the event.

Riot adds extra broadcasts for VALORANT Champions Tour EMEA Stage 2

The second stage of the VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT) is in full swing, with the second round of Qualifier brackets for the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East, Africa) coming up. After the community noticed that the planned broadcast coverage for these Qualifiers was limited, especially compared to coverage of the Qualifiers in North America, Riot Games has addressed the matter by increasing the number of licensed streams.

Split in Europe-focused streams, CIS-focused streams, and Turkey-focused streams, nine extra broadcasts will cover the event. The extra streams are listed in the table below.




Zescht + Lothar

Cracken + Pnukh


Mitch + Tom

Snowberry + Bombi


Pansy + Hypoc



These streams will join the official broadcast, hosted by Yinsu Collins with Mitch "MitchMan" McBride and Tom "Tombizz" Bissmire. Any team competing in the Qualifiers is also allowed to stream the series themselves, though it's not sure yet which of the 512 possible attendants will do so.

The VCT EMEA Stage 2 Qualifiers begin on Saturday, April 10, and conclude on Monday, April 12.

Valorant won't have any ban system soon

According to a developer, it won't be even considered until the game has "around 30 agents".
