The VCT Game Changers SEA: FSL Open V Playoffs team list has been finalized following the conclusion of the open qualifier, which saw seven of the eight teams from the previous season requalify, with the exception of Oasis Gaming, who were eliminated in the group stage by Renatus White (formerly known as ‘The Impaler’).
Currently 4th in the Worldwide Game Changers rankings, Alter Ego Celeste has been in dominating form going into the fifth season. The top team will aim to extend their winning streak to five seasons. Galaxy Racer Female also secured wins in their group deciders over Lightality Estelle to secure the top eight.
The competition is loaded with all eight of Southeast Asia’s current top female teams. The best teams will always come on top both in group and playoffs, as described by Alter Ego Celeste’s Ryona “Tarathiel” Tan in our interview.
