VCT Game Changers SEA: FSL Elite is the culmination of a year-long competition of the FSL VALORANT Circuit 2021, which included eight stages over the course of more than six months.

Alter Ego Celeste of Indonesia enter the playoffs as the strongest-looking side, riding a dominating 24-match winning run that dates all the way back to June before suffering their first loss, 2-0, to MAD Army in September’s Legion of Valkyries competition, dropping their overall match victory percentage to 98,18%. The reigning queens entered VCT Game Changers SEA: FSL Elite as the only squad to remain unbeaten since the inaugural FSL Open in March.
Alter Ego Celeste topped the circuit standings, finishing it with a total of 60 points – a significant lead over Nigma Galaxy Female (formerly known as Galaxy Racer Female), who sit in second place with 42 points – and are heading into the final event as the favorite. The Indonesian powerhouse will face the Philippines’ The Capitol Arise (previously known as AEOSS Arise) in the quarter-finals, who advanced through FSL Overtime after defeating Hashira SR in the match decider.
In the upper half of the double-elimination BO3 playoff bracket, BIG SCYTHE will face off against MAD Army, who are formerly representing Oasis Gaming Aqua. The Thai team is coming off a triumph at Legion of Valkyries 2021 after defeating both Alter Ego Celeste and NGX Female in the process.
While for Nigma Galaxy Female, the second-highest ranked team in attendance, are set to take on VLT Asteria, who just got signed to Velocity Gaming early this month.
The last upper-echelon matchup to close out the first round will be Singapore’s Renatus White against Aricat Aresta, who will try to extend their recent fine run of form with a triumph at FSL Overtime.
