VCC 2022 Playoffs are all set for 25-27 February 2022. Group Stage matches ended on 20 February. With this, the brackets for the finals have been locked.
Moreover, the winner and runner up of this event will be directly seeded into the VCC APAC Challenger Playoffs Main Event.
Meanwhile, something extreme happened that shocked the fans. Riot disqualified God Particles for exploiting a bug in a match.
KnightRider exploited a bug on the Haven map that allowed Jett to climb a Box on the C site. It is done by Passive drift + crouching.
VCT rulebook prohibits players from exploiting bugs in any of the VCC or VCT matches.
But Riot realised that many teams have been exploiting this bug. So many players from other regions took advantage of this.
Therefore, they announced that the Match between God Particles and Team Exploit would continue the next day. Also, they warned every team about the bug issue.
