The Chinese event, which will run from June 1-4 at Dongyi Tianchong Studio Hall in Beijing, China, will see eight teams duke it out for $50,000 and two slots at the PGL Krakow Major's offline qualifier.

After their debut, Renegades' new roster will have another shot to prove their value

Amongst the participants are the invited sides TYLOO and Renegades, who have been placed in different groups. They will be joined by six other squads, who guaranteed their place at the event after coming through different regional qualifiers: 7642, Flash, Immunity, Signature, Spotnet and TheMongolz.

They have always played in the Asian Minor due to the majority of the roster being Aussie.

no they still live in the US they don't get a choice on where they play the minor, even if they wanted to qualify through the NA minor they aren't allowed to they have to do it in Asia

Immunity vs The Mongolz should be interesting. erkaSt knows how The Mongolz play.
2017-05-24 20:54
I think Flash will win, 2nd place seems more tough to know.

why put Renegades picture when they have lost to TyLoo on the last 2 editions of the Asian Minor? Just cause they are Western and play in NA Leagues? they suck simple as that.
2017-05-25 03:41
Because they are a very well known side? There is so much venom in your words for such an unimportant topic, haha.

TyLoo aren't unknown and they are the champions 2x in a row for this. Pictures of Renegades should only be used for some local Australia or NZ LANS not the Asian Minor

I can't expect too much for Flash cause it is the first time for the team to join a international tournament, but good luck for them and Tyloo.
