TheMongolz win Asia Minor

TheMongolz win the Asia Regional Minor taking place at IEM Taipei, bringing down the Australian Renegades team 2-0 (16-9 on de_cbble and 16-2 on de_inferno), and thus qualify for IEM Katowice 2016.

With both TheMongolz and Renegades having won their respective semifinals games and thereby already qualified for the MLG Columbus Main Qualifier, the grand final of the Asia Minor was a battle for the first-place prize of $30,000 and a spot at IEM Katowice in March.

The tournament favourites Renegades were in for a bit of a nasty shock as TheMongolz powered ahead to a 16-9 win on de_cbble, securing another map win against a team which we have currently ranked as 19th in the world in our Global Rankings.


Machinegun and his team have made a big statement for Asian CS:GO

Enkhtaivan "Machinegun" Lkhagva and his teammates were unsatisfied with just taking a map off the Renegades as the Mongolian players launched a CT-side defense on the second map of de_inferno that saw them finish 13-2 and completely destroy Renegades' morale.

In addition, the Australian team saw the bomb get suck inside of the grill when they were down 1-10 and thus lost the round, adding further insult to injury.

The second half saw continued confidence from TheMongolz as they powered forward with a pistolround win to take the map 16-2 and thereby win the Asia Minor.

yeah who cares about 30 grand and an automatic qualification to Katowice. gr8 b8
2016-02-01 08:19
Renegades will throw. Reason: Chiefs received 2nd seed meaning they will vs first seed of group B in the semi's. If Renegades win this match they will be against Chiefs in the semi's meaning only 1 of them can qualify for the major, if they throw, all they gotta do is beat EYA again (easy enough) and they make it through to the semi's as 2nd seed allowing the chance for chiefs AND renegades to make through to the major. Bet Mongolz people.

Mongolian scene has always been active and believe it or not they were very good even when 1.6 was around. The only reason they didn't make it to the world stage was lack of opportunity and obviously cash!. Luckily now these guys has the chance and they grafted their own opportunity from their own pockets. Only down side is that they will lack years of experience from the Tier 1 teams. Pure aim wise they will go toe-to-toe!

Hi, game made me sad and Renegades failed hard. Oh well, hopefully they take it as a wake up call and train hard for the future events. Fans shouldn't bail just because the team performs poorly a couple times though. To The MongolZ credit, they played really well as well. I'm hoping they won't just be a 1 hit wonder. We'll see in the coming months I guess.

tbh the only NA teams that are better then them are cloud9 and maybe liquid now they have s1mple (lg are SA) hats off to mongols though they played really well today and renegades played like trash. gotta play better then that if they want to qualify for any actual decent events.

Awesome! Now let's just hope they don't get their visas denied for the upcoming events coz that would suck!
2016-02-01 12:00
These guys are such exciting prospects. I really hope they make a statement at the major. It was so utterly painful to watch Renegades crumble under the immense pressure, but you have to give it to MongolZ.

said it after they beat CZ, Renegades doesnt deserve any invites to qualifiers, leagues or literally anything non-domestic at all, they are simply a huge waste of a spot for a proper good EU T2-3 team also fuck esl/esea for giving them an wildcard invite and not the NA team which won premier(which was the way the league worked all 17 seasons before)
2016-02-01 17:21
its the same with faze in europe
2016-02-01 19:02

Good rng are trash any way, maybe this way some Australian team who actually get results can get a chance in the spotlight. They need a roster change havoc is absolute trash get someone from immunity or chiefs I get that the core is pretty tight but obviously something is holding them back.
