Esports News – The third of the four Minors for the FACEIT Major: London 2018 is set to begin today, July 16 at the Twickenham Stadium in England. It is the Asia Minor Championship and features 8 teams competing to qualify for the Major’s New Challengers Stage—succeeding the Americas Minor and CIS Minor, and preceding the Europe Minor. With the competition looming, here’s a viewer’s guide containing all the information you need to follow while watching the event.
The penultimate tournament of the FACEIT Major is the Asia Minor. The 8 participating teams will fight for two spots available at the next $1 million Valve-sponsored event, as well as a portion of the $50,000 prize pool. All of the participants are divided into two double-elimination groups, following the best-of-three (B03) matches in the lower bracket. The top two dominating teams from Group A and B will advance to the double-elimination, B03 playoffs.
The division can be found below:
Thailand’s Signature Gaming was supposed to take part in the event, but their visa issues forced them to withdraw. Their replacement was Singapore’s B.O.O.T-d[S] which will feature top player Leslie “Bobosaur” Soen instead of former Rifler Alikhan “w1nt3r” Kopzhanov. In other news, VG.Flash, the current crowd favorite, was not able to compete with a full-line up after YuanZhang “AttackeR” Sheng suffered a foot injury while playing basketball. Hopefully, coach Zhenghui “z8z” Liu replaces him in the starting line-up.
