Format and schedule for Valorant Champions Tour Masters Berlin

The Valorant Champions Tour Stage 3 Masters Berlin will start on September 10 with Group Play. All 16 teams will be divided evenly into four groups, with four teams from each region.

Riot initially announced the Group Play to be held in a four-team double-elimination bracket, where one side from each group will qualify for the next stage, i.e., Elimination Bracket, held on September 18 and September 19.

There the matches will take place in a single-elimination format.

However, after lots of feedback from the players and fans, Riot changed the Valorant Champions Tour Masters Berlin's Group Play stage format. It will now be played in a single eight-team elimination bracket format instead of the knockout stage.

Furthermore, the group stage will no longer have a final match. Two teams will qualify for the next stage, in place of one.
