During the second day of the day left for the second and most anticipated rematch between XSET North America and FPX EMEA, the English stream started to look like a very serious problem. The stream continually veers and was displayed to many fans in the first card of the series.
Although many fans forgot Pearl’s first card, the stream returned to normal in time for Bind’s second card. The English broadcast will continue without giving the usual break.

The match between XSET and FPX is highly regarded because it’s not just an elimination match, but also because the NA and EMEA regionals seem to be a constantly contested state. Although many people used languages to watch the game, today, English-speaking fans in these two regions have lost the battle for the future.
The creek started going dark around noon. Even though it’s not the first time the English market has faced these issues, their inability to go through a tough time with them in such an anticipated game was unbearable for the fans.
After a long hiatus, many fans flocked to one of the other four official broadcasts. Some EMEA fans may have quickly turned to another hometown broadcast, but many North American fans were stuck.
Many fans have decided to listen to Japanese or Brazilian shows as these two countries are known for their passion and passionate fan base. Other bilinguals, whether French, Korean, Arabic, German or Mandarin, can take their bilingual language course.
This broadcast issue may have opened up a whole new world for bilingual VALORANT fans, who may not have experienced the host of the other VCT broadcasts available. On top of that, you can watch the VCT Champions tournament in the same languages with the same spotters and stage cameras.
Although the English-language broadcast is the main broadcast announced by the VCT and also the broadcast with the most comprehensive stage setup and interview opportunities, it is not the only way to watch the VCT.
The stream will be back, but fans will now be able to turn to the future if the stream is late again. There are still three very competitive days left in the VCT until the 2022 champion is crowned.
