PGL KeSPA Asia Minor viewer's guide
With PGL KeSPA Regional Minor Championship Asia kicking off on May 5, we have assembled all the information you need including groups, the schedule, the talent list, and more.
The second Minor to take place in this Major cycle will be in Seoul, South Korea as eight teams will battle it out from the 5th of May to the 8th. The tournament will offer two spots to the ESL One Cologne Offline Qualifier alongside a $50,000 cash prize.
The first day at the Nexon eSports Arena will see two groups of four teams duke it out in a GSL format. The opening and the elimination matches are going to be best-of-ones while the decider and the winners' matches will be played as best-of-threes. Top two from both groups will advance to the playoffs.
Groups can be found below:
|Group A||Group B|
