ESF 2016 team list complete

The teams that will compete at the eSports Festival playoffs taking place in Hong Kong have been determined.

A long qualifying process began after the tournament organizers handed out the only invitation to TYLOO and announced that two of the remaining three spots would be given out in the Asian qualifier while one would be going to the winner of the Hong Kong qualifier.

The Asian slots went to EDG and VG.CyberZen—two Chinese squads—as the former beat Signature 2-1 in a close series while the latter eased past MVP Project.

Savage's VG.CyberZen qualified for the LAN finals 

3 NEW 2 OLD faced EMC at the ROG CS:GO Hong Kong Tournament grand final for the last spot and 3 NEW 2 OLD managed to clinch the victory with a 2-0 scoreline.

Therefore, the four teams that will compete at the ESF 2016 playoffs are:

China TYLOO China VG.CyberZen
China EDG Hong Kong 3 NEW 2 OLD

The eSports Festival 2016 will take place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on August 21 and will offer 150,000 HKD (~19,500) in cash prizes.

Imo mixwell is good but you cant argue that Chinese scene > Spain scene. 1 player in a NA team =/= a scene
