After the first-ever Global Lan tournament with VCT Stage 2 masters, VCT comes back yet again for the third and final stage.
VCT Stage 3 EMEA is going to incorporate a double-elimination format. This will be the last phase of VCT before the grand event at the end of this year. Also, the Stage 3 Masters will be held in Berlin, Germany and it will be a LAN event as well where the top 4 teams in EMEA will represent the region.
