Flash finalize Asia Minor list

Flash defeated ViCi in the grand final of the Chinese Minor qualifier with a 2-1 scoreline (16-8 Cobblestone, 13-16 Cache, 16-7 Overpass).

The final qualifier for the Asia Minor has come to it's last stage today, with the two favorite teams ViCi and Flash getting to the grand final of the Chinese qualifier.

WeiJie "zhokiNg" Zhong's ViCi had a stroll through their half of the bracket, defeating the likes of UYA and LGD with one-sided scorelines. Through the five maps they played up to the grand final, they only dropped 24 rounds and also recorded a 16-0 victory on Nuke—starting from the Terrorist side.

A few months after the squad assembled, the "Asian Superteam" Flash was finally seen in competition this weekend in the Chinese Minor Qualifier. YuLun "Summer" Cai's new team wasn't as dominant as ViCi as they did drop one map, but they still weren't in danger of going out to any of the teams they faced.


fancy1's side secured a spot at the Asia Minor 

ViCi picked Cobblestone to start the grand finel, but their Terrorist side was stopped by a solid defensive display from Flash, who picked up 10 CT rounds. After losing the first map 16-8, zhokiNg put up a massive performance on Cache to help his side equalize the map score at 1-1.

It all came down to Overpass, the final map. Flash once again had a great start on the CT side, using the various offensive posibilites the map offers. ViCi clawed back to a five round deficit before the end of the first half, but some good clutches from Flash allowed them to close out the map with a comfortable 16-7 scoreline.

Yeah but there were like 5 teams included in the shuffle. Srsly can't tell who are the "good" ones anymore
2017-05-14 19:37
I would say the four teams that stand out are: TyLoo | Obviously Flash | As seen here ViCi | Generally do well in tournaments. Can't seem to win many though Eclipse | They were playing really well as Born Of Fire. I expect it to continue

Pretty bullshit that teams like Signature, Spotnet and 7642 get to attend this event over teams like ViCi, Chiefs, MVP project etc. Its pretty apparent that their skill level is nowhere near the same level. Volvo needs to seriously reconsider which countries it gives Minor spots to.
2017-05-14 18:31
Thats the point. If spots were only to be given to good teams,none of the asian teams deserve one.
2017-05-14 19:39
I agree with the qualifying process, but i see no reason for it to have qualifiers for such underwhelming regions such as the Middle East, South East Asia and India. Instead, provide an extra 1 for China, Oceania and East Asia (All regions that actually have far better teams than the ones who came from the other qualifiers) The Asian teams aren't great, but theres definitely teams with potential there.
2017-05-14 19:43
They are doing it so that teams stay interested in the game...its strategic...marketing :P
2017-05-14 19:44
pretty much. Since when have Volvo ever actually cared about the competitiveness of CS:GO?
2017-05-14 19:45
It's not like Signature always loses to Mongolz and MVP tho. Those teams got into some international events because there was only China qualifier or sth like that due to sponser

Exciting to see how this lineup fares against international competition. I still remember the brief period of dominance in 1.6 by Asian teams like wNv and project.KR.
