Asia Minor viewer's guide

The Asia Minor will kick off tomorrow with eight teams from the region clashing for a share of the $50,000 prize pool and two spots at PGL Major Krakow's Main Qualifier.

The tournament will take place at Dongyi Tianchong Studio Hall in Beijing, China from June 1-4.

It will feature two invited teams and six other teams that secured their spots through the 5 online qualifiers: China, Oceania, SEA & India, East Asia and Middle-East.

Can jks lead Renegades to their first Asia Minor victory or will the curse continue?
