Team Secret have qualified for Valorant Champions, the marquee tournament of the 2021 VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT). They achieved the feat courtesy of a close win of SuperMassive Blaze over arch-rivals Paper Rex. The loss meant the South Asian team made an early exit after finishing 13th-15th in the ongoing VCT Stage 3 Masters in Berlin.

It has been an eventful few months for the Valorant roster of Team Secret. They missed out on the VCT Stage 3 Masters closely while playing as Bren Esports. They had qualified along with Paper Rex for the tournament in Berlin but couldn't be there because of visa issues.

After the disappointing end to their Masters' campaign, Bren Esports disbanded their Valorant roster, so the players were in danger of missing out on the finals.

However, much to their fan's delight, Team Secret announced the taking over of the disbanded Valorant roster of Bren Esports on 9th September. And since the players had the points tied with them and not the team, Team Secret was still in the run for a place in the Valorant Champions.

Team Secret (the then Bren Esports) had 225 points, and so did the Paper Rex side. But Team Secret will get the direct berth by winning the grand finals of the VCT SEA Stage 3 Challengers Playoffs back in August.
Team Secret now joins the Thai team X10 Esports as the only two SEA teams to have obtained the direct qualification to the finals. They can still expect to meet Paper Rex in the finals, who can qualify through the Last Chance Qualifier for the circuit's Asia-Pacific region.

If Paper Rex still manages to qualify, they will join Team Secret, X10 Esports and 15 other teams from North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Brazil, Africa, Korea, and Japan in the Valorant Champions.
The finals will begin on 2nd December in Berlin, and we will have our first Valorant World Champion on 12th December.
