TWC Asian qualifiers announced

E-frag.net has revealed the details about the Asian qualifying process for The World Championships 2016.

Twenty-four national teams will compete in the Asian qualifiers over the next weeks to determine which country will represent the region at the offline finals of TWC 2016, which will be held from October 12-16.

The qualifiers will kick off with a single-elimination, best-of-three bracket featuring the 16 lowest-ranked teams in the regions. The top four teams will advance to a second qualifying round, in which they will be pitted against higher-ranked teams in best-of-three clashes.


TuKoN's Vietnam get one of the top seeds 

The top four teams will secure spots in the main round, which will also feature the top seeded nations, Vietnam, China, Indonesia and Thailand. A double-elimination group stage, featuring two groups of four teams and best-of-three decider matches, will determine the four teams making it to the playoffs.

Below you can find how the competing teams have been distributed between the qualifying rounds:

Were certainly going to fins out what the talent looks like! This should be a cool tourney with the hottest talents these countries have to offer. I dont know of any teams from those Middle Eastern countries so Im stoked to see what they have to bring to the table.

I remember that India used to have a really good have CS 1.6 players. 90% of the odds would say China, but I am seeking for a surprise. It is really nice to see that some of these countries, could contribute to eSports with something. Good luck teams :)
