Asia Minor groups revealed
The groups and the group stage format for the upcoming Asia Minor, which will see two teams qualify for the Main Qualifier for the ELEAGUE Major, have been revealed to HLTV.org.
After ViCi's pullout from the Minor due to visa issues and them being replaced by BOOT-d[S], the team list for the tournament that will be held in Seoul, Korea, has been set. Today, HLTV.org has learned the group draw from the event.
Group A will feature two prominent Australian teams, the NA-based Renegades and the Oceanic hope Kings, as well the well known Koreans of MVP PK. Finishing off the group will be TheMongolz, who have recently qualified for IEM Oakland.
The full group stage draw is available below:
|Group A||Group B|
The group stage will be played out using the GSL system, with BO1's for the opening matches and the winners match, while the elimination and decider matches will be BO3.
These are the opening matchups for the Asia Minor:
|Kings||vs. MVP PK|
|TYLOO||vs. Tainted Minds|
At this point, it has not been confirmed if this Asia Minor will use the tried-and-tested double-elimination playoff bracket that we saw in use at recent Minors.
