The teams faced off in a competitive group stage that followed the Swiss Stage format. The Swiss format makes sure teams have enough chances to show off their abilities and earn a spot in the playoffs. Following a challenging few days, the top 4 teams have earned a spot in the playoffs. After a brief intermission, the 4 teams will play two games each. Sentinels and LOUD will square off in one of these matches, much to the delight of the fans. Naturally, GenG vs. Paper Rex, the other playoff matchup between the 2 Asian teams, will occur.

Sentinels and GenG advanced through the group stages unbeaten. Although GenG defeated their opponents 2-1 in both of their games, they did play some very challenging opponents. They played a match series against EDward Gaming after their first series against LOUD. Sentinels competed against Heretics and Karmine Corp., two EMEA teams, in the meantime. The EMEA nemesis squad defeated Heretics by a score of narrowly 2-1, though they had much easier going against Karmine Corp.

Gen.G quickly advanced to the Playoffs with a 2-0 score. In the Swiss round, it defeated LOUD and EDward Gaming (EDG) in series with 2-1 scores. In the same way, Sentinels qualified for the Playoffs with ease. As LOUD and Paper Rex lost one series in the 1st round, they had to advance through the Round 2 Low matches. Although LOUD was defeated by GEN, it triumphed over FPX and EDG. Paper Rex defeated TH and KC but lost a series to EDG.

There are two rounds of elimination in the Playoffs. At the very least, each team is given two chances to establish their worth. All games are bo5 series, with the exception of the Lower Bracket Finals and the Grand Finals. Three VCT Points are also awarded to the Masters Madrid winner. Even though the VCT points might not seem significant at first, later in the season they play a crucial role in determining the final list of 2024 VCT Champions teams.

On March 14–24 is when the Valorant Champions Tour 2024: Masters Madrid will take place. The top 8 teams are vying for three VCT Points, which are required to advance to the world championship, and a total prize pool of $500,000. The main stream of the tournament will be available live on Twitch and YouTube in English, while different game developers and streamers will host co-streams in multiple languages. Fans are eager to see how the tournament continues to develop in the coming days.
