The Valorant Champions Tour is currently in its Stage 2 and teams are racing to qualify for the Challengers 2 event. With the open qualifiers for the tournament coming to an end yesterday, all eight teams are now set.
We saw the conclusion of VCT NA Stage 2 Challengers 1 over a week ago and four teams already earned a spot in Challengers 2. The remaining four were to be determined by open qualifiers, where we saw some of the biggest organizations in North America. Here's who made it:

Sentinels - The First To Qualify
After winning VCT NA Masters 1, Sentinels have had it rough. The team failed to make it past the open qualifier for Stage 2 Challengers 1, but now they totally made up for it. We'll be seeing more of Sentinels in just a few days when Stage 2 Challengers 2 kicks off on April 22.
NRG defeat Luminosity
The second team that qualified was NRG. The organization has been around for half a year in Valorant, but they have yet to show us some results. With their victory against Luminosity, NRG secured a spot in the Challengers 2, and we'll finally see them in the big leagues.
T1 send FaZe Clan back home
FaZe Clan were the second-best at VCT NA Masters 1, where they lost to Sentinels. Much like the latter, they're now having trouble going past the open qualifiers. T1 were the better team and they proved it.
After an intense match on Split, @T1 claim a 2-1 victory and move on to the #VCTChallengersNA Week 2 Main Event!— Nerd Street Gamers (@nerdstgamers) April 19, 2021
Next match decides the final qualifying team:
@GenG vs @TSM
T1 have one of the most promising rosters in the NA scene and many are expecting them to outperform the competition in the upcoming event.
TSM are back
We haven't seen good results from TSM in 2021, as their top performance was back in 2020 during the First Strike North America. Now, they've managed to climb back to the top after defeating Gen.G in the open qualifiers.
