    The Hunger Games of VALORANT has begun as the Last Chance Qualifiers start in all regions. @paperthinhere joins us to discuss the APAC region and while we think Nuturn is the strongest, PaperRex shows a fighting chance. @RyanCentral is around to talk about EMEA's strong contenders, can Team Liquid take the last spot or will SMB swoop in to nab it away? @dream_val helps us look at NA's bracket, the format of which was just awful until Oceania was sacrificed to the dark gods by Riot. Can Cloud9 Blue make it all the way with the addition of Vanity, or will 100Thieves surprise everyone after their cutting of Steel? Lastly, congratulations to Cloud9 White for pocketing another Game Changers title!

    Cloud9 White has dominated the women's scene since the beginning, and while they show no signs of slowing does, @mel_anji is here today to let us know that other teams are getting real close to catching up. Will it be worth for her team to stick around in Game Changers tournaments in the future or focus more on VCT? We also talk of T1 probably dumping their entire roster, 100T is getting rid of Steel, and Ardiis is potentially joining FPX. We also cover Patch 3.06 bringing about a bunch of changes to Jett, Kay/o, and Skye as well as multiple map alterations, and just how will Fracture fit in as a new map into competitive play?

    Berlin Masters is finally over and Gambit has taken the cake, but how did we get here? We have the fantastic @Geometric and @aEvilCat to fill some hosts seats today as we take a look at Berlin playoffs, talking with @AchiliosCasts about how Vision Strikers and Korea fared, we chat with @RivingtonThe3rd about just how Envy toppled Sentinels, and lastly with @MikesHD_ about just how Envy came out of nowhere to make it to the finals!

    The stage is awesome! The audio bugs and white noise troubles are not. VCT Berlin is in full swing, and @AverageJonas joins to recap why 100Thieves got out of Group C first but also why Gambit will still reign supreme in the end, @dream_val comes over to discuss the Group B Envy domination but why we shouldn't sleep on Vivo Keyd. We also had the privilege of speaking to @BuddhaJPN about just how Vision Strikers navigated out of Group A in first place and who else between Acend and Super Massive Blaze will be second, and lastly the round robin of Sentinels, G2, and F4Q has been pretty crazy!

    With Berlin right around the corner, what do @followdustT and @MikesHD_ think of NA's great hopes of Sentinels, Envy, and 100Thieves? We all know they'll get out of their groups, but what about bracket stage? In the meantime the new map, Fracture, has been announced, Riot is looking to expand VALORANT into the convoluted world of China possibly leading FPX to dump their EMEA roster (thanks for your expertise on the subject @heymunchables!), and oh boy does it sound like the ESIC is going to have some doozies for us in the future!

    Sure, we all know NA is the best region, and that EMEA has some strong teams, but VALORANT pro scene is so much larger than that. With that in mind, we explore all the other regions and their chances in Berlin! @AchilioCasts joins to tell us why Vision Strikers can absolutely dominate, @DaksCasts is convinced SEA is underrated and Bren Esports can pull off some upsets, and @Gottiwp_ gives us some amazing insight on the state of play in Brazil and why Havan Liberty can play with the top dogs. In the end, @YinsuCollins joins to make some predictions from each group (let's be real though, Sentinels will still be on top)!

    It's a glorious show this week as we have the newly minted Cloud 9 Blue member Vanity (@Vanityxz) on the show to talk a little about his past, and a lot about his future with his new team. In the meantime @Tombizz is back again this week to go over how EMEA managed to resolve their region, why Acend, Gambit, G2, and SMB are moving through while Team Liquid fell flat. In the meantime TSM has officially signed an academy team, will this practice work out for organizations?

    It's a VCT wrap up bonanza this week as both EMEA and NA have started to send teams to Berlin already. @Tombizz helps us navigate through the landscape of EMEA and also torment MitchMan a bit, while @Endercasts comes through to explain why NA will in fact reign supreme forever and ever (disclaimer: we may be a little biased). Who will end up in the last 2 spots of Berlin Qualification for EMEA? Is cNed a genius or an instinct driven monster? Will TenZ or cNed dominate with Jett? Find out! Also, side note, can we please stop scamming each other in esports? Thanks!

    It's the calm before the storm of VCT Regional Finals, and we have @AnderzzTV around this week to help us sift through how we think the various regions will end up shaking out. Will Brazil prove the two VCT slots allotted to them is warranted? Will Vision Strikers finally get their chance on the big stage? Can anyone from LATAM or SEA even compete with NA and EU? Also what the heck is going on with Vanity?
