G2 Esports and 100 Thieves qualify for VCT Masters Shanghai

They are the first two American rosters to qualify for the VCT Masters Shanghai.

G2 Esports and 100 Thieves qualified for the VCT Masters Shanghai after moving to the VCT 2024 Americas Stage 1 Upper Bracket Final.

Following G2 Esports' victory against KRÜ Esports in the first game of the day, the North American roster became the first Ascension team to qualify for an edition of the VCT Masters. Later today, Dragon Ranger Gaming could become the second to do so if they defeat Trace Esports at the VCT 2024 China Stage 1 Lower Bracket Semifinal.

Coming from the Knockout Round, G2 Esports faced off against KRÜ Esports, who topped the standings of Group Alpha with a record of five wins and one defeat. Despite the South American lineup being the clear favorite to get the region's first spot in Shanghai, G2 Esports caused an upset after victories on Icebox (13-5) and Ascent (13-8).

Finally, 100 Thieves obtained Americas' second spot in Shanghai after defeating LOUD and Leviatán. The VCT Masters Shanghai will be 100 Thieves' first VCT Masters appearance since the team reached the semi-finals at the VCT 2021 Stage 1 Masters Berlin.
