China qual. details for IEM Sydney

The Chinese (and Mongolia) qualifier for IEM Sydney will be held this coming weekend onwards from March 25-30 with sixteen invited teams.

After hosting the eXTREMESLAND 2016 Zowie Asia $100k tournament in September last year, the Chinese platform known as B5 will also be the organisers for the IEM Sydney Chinese qualifier.

It has been revealed that TheMongolZ will be the only team outside of China to participate in the qualifier, while the rest of the spots will be occupied by the Chinese teams featuring the likes of Bin "⁠Savage⁠" Liu's VG.Renascence and Hansel "⁠BnTeT⁠" Ferdinand's TYLOO, who just recently won China Cup 2017 over Fnatic Academy. It seems that YuLun "⁠Summer⁠" Cai's Flash Gaming roster will not attend, as they have not revealed their final member yet.

TyLoo to take part in Chinese qualifier 

The teams will be separated evenly into four groups, utilising a best-of-one double-elimination GSL format with the exception of the group decider matches being best-of-threes.

Top two teams from each group will advance to the single-elimination best-of-three playoffs, where the participants will fight it out until one team remains and earn their qualification spot to the main event in Australia. 

Meanwhile, the Oceanic region is already underway with its open qualifier, which is expected to be completed this Sunday local time. Two teams from the open qualifier will join six other top invited Australian teams in the closed qualifier, to clash for the other remaining spot.

The groups for the the Chinese qualifier is as followed:

Group A Group B Group C Group D
China TYLOO China ViCi China 5POWER Mongolia TheMongolz
China VG.Renascence China Wings China eFuture China HG
China EHOME China FIVE China New4 China Born Of Fire
China HegemonyPerson China EMP China AllGamers China LGD

With a player like BnTeT on already the best Chinese team, it's hard to see any other team qualify.

Instead they invite a bunch of shitty chinese teams rather than the better asian teams, why the fuck does this keep happening.

Sad that it's mostly only Chinese teams, would have loved to seen some other top Asian teams in attendance.

I agree, for example I'd love to see MVP PK attend IEM, it's been way too long since solo & co. competed in a big international event, sadly they are not on their 1.6 level. China teams aren't on the same level as 1.6 either tbh. I miss the days when asian teams like Lunatic-Hai/e-STRO/WeMade FOX and wNv Teamwork could beat even the best teams in the world. Seems like those days are long gone...

While I agree id like to see MVP PK return to their 1.6 form unfortunately they aren't there yet and there are a lot of Asian teams better than they are that are missing from this competition, such as: - The MongolZ (Mongolia) - Recca (Indonesia) - Ultimate (Vietnam) - JYP Gaming (Malaysia) - ENZO (Hong Kong) - Signature (Thailand)
