Esports News – The fusion of the largest continent and biggest esports tournament in the world is not something CS:GO fans would want to miss. Perfect World, a Chinese esports organization, is pleased to announce that Asia will now experience the biggest CS:GO tournament at Pudong Shangri-La Hotel in Shanghai, China starting today.
CS:GO Asia Summit
Perfect World is the same host of the Asia Minor Championship for PGL Major Krakow 2017 and the main distributor of CS:GO in China after buying the intellectual rights from Valve in 2016. It’s the only company that allowed Chinese players to sign-up for a CS:GO account and enter low-latency Chinese servers and instant Prime matchmaking status. It is then safe to say that CS:GO Asia Summit is not just a competition, but a bridge connecting Asia-Pacific esports players to the world.
The best teams in Asia-Pacific region are rivals for the $60,000 prize pool of CS:GO Asia Summit. Perfect World has directly invited 4 CS:GO teams in this one-day event, namely: TyLoo, Grayhound Gaming, MVP PK, and B.O.O.T-dream[S]cape. Most of the participants are Asia’s local favorites. Tyloo recently won the Starladder ImbaTV Invitational Chongqing 2018, and B.O.O.T-dream[S]cape bagged 3rd place in the WESG 2017 Asia Pacific Finals.
Individual players, two players from each team and two invited guests, will first compete under the banners Asia CAS Howl and Asia CAS Lore for best-of-one (BO1) showmatch. Benjamin “moxie” Kou and QiFang “Karsa” Su will team up with Hansel “BnTeT” Ferdinand of TyLoo, Sean “Gratisfaction” Kaiwai of Grayhound, and Hyun-Pyo “XigN” Lee of MVP PK for the CAS Howl. BingYuan “tb” Li will team up with Ke “Mo” Liu of TyLoo, Benedict “Benkai” Tan of B.O.O.T-dream[S]cape, Ollie ‘Dickstacy’ Tierney of Grayhound, and Keun-Chul “solo” Kang of MVP PK.
All the team matches are in best-of-three (BO3) format, and a single-elimination bracket will entirely be used for the one-day tournament. The prize pool is spread among the winning teams in three divisions: $30,000 for the first place, $15,000 for the 2nd place, and $7,500 for 3rd-4th place.
