Schedule Of Matches For Asia Minor - FACEIT Major 2018
The third CS:GO Minor for FACEIT Major 2018 is coming up shortly. After the qualifiers for America and CIS, the representatives of the Asian region are entering the fight for two tickets to the most prestigious tournament of the next competitive season.
Eight squads will be performing at the upcoming Asia Minor Championship. Two of them received direct invites from the organizers, while all the others made it through the regional qualifiers in China, Oceania, SEA, East Asia, and Middle East.
Due to visa issues, the participant-list of Asia Minor has undergone some changes. The Israeli team Uniquestard will attend the event with a stand-in, Daniel "ponkt" Punkt, who will be replacing Anton "hydra" Sviridon, while 5POWER are going to compete for a spot at FACEIT Major with three forced substitutions: Benjamin "moxie" Kou, ZhiHai "QKA" Fu, and Andrew "kaze" Khong. Also, the Thai five from Signature Gaming couldn’t go to the tournament in London, so they were replaced by B.O.O.T-dream[S]cape after their victory over Devious in the match for that spot.
|Group A||Group B|
The participants of this event will start with the group stage that will run by the rules of GSL. Opening matches will be played in Best of 1, and all the others in Best of 3. Then, four strongest teams will be playing within a Double-Elimination BO3 bracket in the Playoffs, where they will share a $50,000 prize-pool and two tickets to FACEIT Major 2018.
