Asia Minor viewer's guide

In less than two hours from now, the Asia Minor Championship will kick off today featuring eight invited teams from Asia and Oceania. Here's all the information you need to know about the event, including the schedule and the on-air talent.

Two spots at the next CS:GO Major's Main Qualifier and a share of the $50,000 prize pool is on the line again for the attendees at the Asia Minor Championship, which commences today until Sunday at the VSL Studios in Seoul, South Korea.

This is the first time in the history of the Asia Minor, where all the participants were invited due to time restrictions with holding open qualifiers for the sub-regions of Asia.

Reigning Asia Minor champions Renegades will be looking to win their second Minor in a row

Here is the list of teams, who have been separated into two GSL groups of four:

Group A Group B
Australia Renegades China TYLOO
Australia Kings China Flash
Korea MVP PK Singapore BOOT-d[S]
Mongolia TheMongolz Australia Tainted Minds

Day 1 will feature all the Group A matches, while Group B will take place on day two, consisting of a best-of-three format in the elimination and decider matches. The final two days will obviously use the double-elimination playoffs, where the top two teams from each group will advance to.
