The VALORANT Champions Tour 2023 is officially underway. Already, we’ve seen plenty of awesome action, with Fnatic defeating LOUD at the LOCK//IN São Paulo final. Now, the second international event of the year, Masters Tokyo, is coming up next — and there are plenty of reasons to be excited about it. 

What is the VCT Masters Tokyo 2023? 

The VALORANT Champions Tour is an eSports tournament series that takes place every year, with the 2023 edition being the 3rd tour so far. 

From Fnatic to LOUD, the best VALORANT teams from around the world will be competing in the VALORANT Champions Tour 2023. Then, after each event has taken place, the tour will conclude with the main event: Valorant Champions. This is the elite crowning event where the most successful teams from the tour face off to be crowned the ultimate VALORANT champion of the year. The winners in 2022 were LOUD, which saw them take home the $1 million prize. 

Because the VALORANT eSports scene is more competitive than ever and the prize money keeps on increasing, teams will be fighting extra hard to win the VCT Masters Tokyo 2023. If you want a slice of the action by betting on VCT Masters Tokyo, you can do so right here at Thunderpick.

All you need to know about VCT Masters Tokyo 2023 

The Masters Tokyo 2023 will be the 2nd official event of the VALORANT Champions Tour 2023. It’ll take place from 11-25 June, with the final match happening on the 25th

There’s a lot of hype surrounding the Masters Tokyo. Over recent years, the VALORANT community has grown beyond belief in Japan, with hundreds of thousands of Japanese fans streaming each eSports event. Plus, the VALORANT Twitch community is huge in Japan, too, which has helped to further drive the competitive scene over there. Ultimately, this is why Riot Games decided to choose Tokyo as the destination for the Masters. 

Interestingly, the Masters Tokyo will be the only Masters of the VALORANT Champions Tour 2023. This is a major change from the traditional tour format where multiple Masters events are held. As a result, this makes the Masters Tokyo extra special and the competition levels fiercer!
