TyLoo & RNG invited to Asia Minor

TyLoo and Renegades have been invited to attend the Asia Minor, the event's organisers have revealed.

The news brings the team count up to seven, with the final spot due to be determined by the Chinese online qualifier, scheduled for May 12.

Renegades were in attendance at IEM Sydney, where they finished 6th-7th, with just one victory from four matches.

TyLoo were last seen at the SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 event, which they attended with ViCi member WeiJie "zhokiNg" Zhong as a stand-in for Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand due to visa issues. They were eliminated in the Swiss round following defeats to SK Gaming, Gambit and MVP Project.


Renegades are the second Australian team confirmed for the Minor

The Asia Minor will take place in an as-yet undisclosed Chinese city from June 1-4. On top of the $50,000 prize fund, there will be two spots at the offline qualifier for PGL Major Krakow up for grabs.

The team list for the Asia Minor now looks as follows:

Mongolia TheMongolz Lebanon Spotnet
Thailand Signature Thailand 7642

Not that much related, but do you think RNG are better or worse than the old lineup? Just curious :)
2017-05-06 14:51
worse atm, they have more firepower now so once they get their shit together they will be much better

Do you think they'll get their shit together by the time the minor comes around?
2017-05-06 15:10
doubt it, im hopeful tho, i want there to be a good aus team again :~(

imo jks and AZR should just join good NA teams. Rather a few successful Aussies than a mediocre team?

The only challenge for RNG in this minor is meant to be Tyloo but who knows. Their current form is terrible.

Vici are still lacking what TyLoo had when they were Top 20. I'd rather risk it and want Flash to qualify

Yeah, I think Flash has more potential than ViCi atm.

On paper, this team looks like they should do better with the firepower they have but it doesn't seem like nexa is comfortable with the IGL role, so time will tell.

tucks has a VAC ban though and is the IGL, what a shame...
2017-05-06 14:26
they can easily replace him with lightstep, they got a good lineup at the moment and lightstep is bae
2017-05-06 14:51
kek
2017-05-06 14:26
Not without tucks. He's one of their best players AND their Ingame leader. Without him they tend to struggle

well previously such teams always competed in eu qualifiers from my own expirience, so im kinda wondering..... would you consider SS also asian if they moved closer to the syrian border? lmao

Don't think we have to consider them as eu players than, that was their choice, IMO red reserved would play in eu qualifier even though they are Brazilians, but anyway they've disbanded. RNG have to play NA Qual like they did for SLTV
2017-05-06 16:36
Having a good ping to a region = being part of this region, yes
2017-05-06 14:32

Ez for Renegades, their only problem is nexa choking but that is kinda understandable since he's just moved from small 1000€ tourneys to big ones like IEM Sydney...

who cares none of these teams is going to make it through the offline qualifier anyway. They are only some "easy" to beat opponents for the EU/US Teams.

2017-05-06 22:01
also I am shocked that chiefs was not invited over immunity
2017-05-06 22:02
Let's go BnTeT. TyLoo has to prove that they are the #1 in Asia right now.
