The final iteration of Valorant Champions Tour Stage 3 has officially been announced by Riot Games at the Esports Media Preview Event held on May 5th.
The series to filter out the best out of every region is finally reaching its end, and fans may see a few events offline.

Valorant Champions Tour announces more in-person LAN tournaments
LAN events are finally returning. The developer earlier announced that Masters Reykjavik would be the first major Valorant event that will be held online since the game's release. It seems that the developer has geared up to bring back the true spirits of esports by announcing the next offline event.
The 2021's final Masters will be the last chance for the best teams to compete and earn points for the following competitions. The Berlin final will lead to the biggest tournament of the year, Valorant Champions, set to happen in November and December. Players waiting for the Valorant Champions now have Berlin final to look forward to, which is currently a hot event among the Valorant fans.
Regional events for Masters Berlin will begin in June, where teams enter the grounds to qualify throughout seven Challengers tournaments.
"We’re excited to continue to break new ground with Masters Reykjavik. In the run-up to the tournament, more than 2,000 teams from around the world participated in qualifying events, the most of any VALORANT event to date," Whalen Rozelle, Riot Games’ senior director of esports, said.
The developer hasn't yet confirmed whether the event will take place on LAN, but offline events should likely return in time before the Berlin final. The venue has been announced but any shift in safety guidelines may impact the Stage 3 final setting.
The mega circuit dubbed Valorant Champions Tour has hosted thousands of teams to prove that they're best in their respective regions. Unlike any other leg of the series, the Berlin event will feature 16 teams worldwide. The Reyjkhavic, Iceland also featured 10 slots for the teams who'll compete for the Masters trophy revealed in the May 5th clip.
More details about the event should be announced after the Reyjkhavic finals before June.
