Asia Minor team list complete

The South Korean qualifier for the PGL KeSPA Asia Minor has concluded, with MVP project and m0nster advancing to the $50,000 event taking place May 5-8.

Romanian company PGL teamed up with KeSpa, the governing body for esports in South Korea, to host the Asia Minor Championship in the Nexon eSports Arena in Seoul, South Korea from May 5-8, with $50,000 and two spots to the ESL One Cologne 2016 offline qualifier on the line.

After the completion of a China qualifier, a SEA qualifier, and a Oceania qualifier, the final remaining qualifier to determine the two allocated South Korean spots took place this weekend.


Renegades will have to fend off regional competition

Although external reporting from outside of the country on the Korea qualifier was scarce, it has been confirmed from sources that the two teams who survived the Korea qualifier and thus attained two spots at the Asia Minor are MVP Project and m0nster respectively.

Interestingly enough, the core of the current MVP Project lineup used to also play under the m0nster tag before they were picked up by one of South Korea's most successful esports organisations in late 2015.

With the South Korean qualifier completed, the teams list for the Asia Minor is as follows:

China VG.CyberZen China TYLOO United Arab Emirates Risky Australia Immunity
Mongolia TheMongolz Australia Renegades Korea MVP Project Korea m0nster

The PGL KeSPA Asia Minor runs from May 5-8 in Seoul with $50,000 and two Major qualifier spots on the line.

As the dates overlap with DreamHack Austin, HLTV.org will not be able to send a team to do on-site coverage however we will as always provide statistics and reporting from the event as it kicks off.

Which qualifiers did you guys participate in? If another minor is hosted by KESPA then valve is stupid they clearly aren't qualified to run an event.

I wouldn't really know, I don't actually pay that much attention to Asian CS, mainly because it can be really boring to watch and isn't hype enough.

2 SK teams is ridiculous :(
2016-04-25 03:05
It IS ridiculous. It's not like either team will make it to the major qualifiers. MVP Project reigns supreme in South Korea anyways. It's the only SK team that we really ever see play in Asia and even then, they're not that great. There are far better teams in SEA. KeSPA does NOT deserve another chance to host another minor.
