PGL Asia Minor announced

PGL has announced the details for the Asia Minor Championship, taking place in China from June 1-4.

With a $50,000 prize pool up for grabs, eight teams will compete at the event, which will kick off with two GSL groups followed by a double-elimination bracket.

Two teams will be invited to the competition and six squads will have to qualify. The top two teams from the Asia Minor will secure spots at the PGL Krakow Major Offline Qualifier, which will be held from June 29 to July 2.

The only reason TyLoo qualify for LAN is because there is little challenge in the region, RNG have to go through NA qualifiers and we know how good teams in these qualifiers are such as SK, IMT, CLG and C9. So that's the reason RNG can't qualify for LAN. But on the other hand did TyLoo win a map at Vegas and Kiev?
2017-04-12 06:16
i know tyloo is bad,but RNG can win tyloo?

Exactly my thought. Making the same mistake for 2 years in a row nice one PGL...
2017-04-10 17:06
> Asia Minor > NA event > Australian team Is it Valves fault that a shit tier Australian team competes in NA events and wants to qualify for Asian Minor?
2017-04-10 21:53
well, yeah, it is valve's fault since RNG don't "want" to play in asian minor. They said multiple times that they would prefer to go through the americas minor and that valve makes them have to qualify via asia
2017-04-11 00:44
Same point, they are an Australian team they should not be allowed to compete wherever they wish.
2017-04-11 13:58
no, you said that rng "want" to compete at asian minor when in fact that is incorrect. so not the same point
2017-04-11 14:20
its not valve that schedules the minor its Pgl and pgl as even orginizers should know when other events are, especially since everyone have known when the pro league finals are taking place for some time now so clearly the most obvious thing to do would be schedule your event so that its not on the same date, especially since they know one of there invites will more then likely qualify for it. rng is an australian team to then have no choice but to compete in the asian minor but there org is a US org and has them compete in a better and more competative enviroment. they should be aloud to compete at whatever events they want to. PGL made the same mistake last time so you would think that they would have learnt from that mistake but apparently not. there poor event orginizers as simple as that.

Renegades fucked over AGAIN if they make it to Pro League. Completely unfair, could have moved it by 1 weekend either side of the event. Now RNG have to lose a lot of prize money of attending Pro League (again) or attempt to qualify through the minor for no money and for a much smaller chance at qualifying. Genius PGL. Genius.

Trusting PGL with a major when they can't even schedule a minor correctly lmao.

why dont renegades play NA region qualifiers ? NA minor? when they are participating in NA ESL pro league?

They can't. Only majority NA/SA teams can compete in the NA minors. RNG must compete in the Asia minors. NA pro league has no nationality rules.
2017-04-10 17:33
Winterfox tried to qualify through NA though.

There is a nationality rules for the minors, the AU WFX team can only compete in the asia minor. You must be confused with another tournament.
2017-04-10 19:36
Oh yeah, nevermind, I just checked it and I confused the Atlanta Major with EL S2. My bad. I only remember that match bc they went against cheaters lul hltv.org/match/2304743-nwnl-winterfox-el..

Because Australia is considered part of the Asian region, which is why the Renegades players have to compete in the Asia Minor. I'd rather have them in the Americas Minor, seeing that they are playing in the region and knowing that they won't get far in the offline qualifiers unless they improve immensely.
