Tainted Minds and Kings round off Asia Minor team list

Tainted Minds and Kings have been invited to the Asia Minor, finalizing the team list for the event.

After the first six teams to be invited to the Asia Minor were found out yesterday, with the likes of Renegades, TYLOO and TheMongolz being on the list, the last two invites have been revealed today.

zewsy's Tainted Minds are amongst the invited teams

Both invited teams hail from the Oceanic region, with Chris "emagine" Rowlands's Kings and Tainted Minds, who recently added Yaman "yam" Ergenekon, getting the invitation.

With all the attending teams now known, it is confirmed that the invite-only event won't feature the recent DreamHack Masters Malmö attendees BOOT-d[S], Australian ESEA S25 winners Grayhound nor anyone from the SEA region, with Recca being the most likely candidate there.

The Asia Minor Championship will feature a Minor-standard $50,000 prize pool, as well as two tickets for the Major qualifier that will be held from January 12-15 in Atlanta.

The following teams will attend the event:

Australia Renegades China TYLOO
Mongolia TheMongolz China ViCi
China Flash Korea MVP PK
Australia Tainted Minds Australia Kings

Due to overlap with the Minor, MVP PK, Kings and TheMongolz won't be attending the ROG MASTERS 2017 APAC qualifiers in Manila Bay, Philippines, leaving the tournament organizer with three spots to fill.

Nah tucks is vacced my friend
2017-10-07 12:49
Chiefs would need to field a standin for tucks due to a past VAC ban. With such short time until the Minor, It would make preperation shit as fuck and likely not allow Chiefs to play at their best. Grayhound should've gotten TM's slot, but shit happens. We'll just have to see how well Yam and Zewsy can carry that team

the new Renegades lineup is strong, they could do something at the major qualifier. However, for tyloo, flash or whoever else makes it, it's gonna be as wasted as VP's legend status.

I'm quite sure it's because of cheating in MM, but i'm not sure. I know for a fact he can't play in valve events though.

Yeah. Tbh i feel bad for sea teams. I think there should only be 1 invite for oce (2 if you include renegades, and the other should have gone to boot or something. Ie last 2 spots ahould have been an oce qual and a sea qual.
