Invites for IEM Katowice Asia & Oceania qualifiers revealed

ESL has announced more details about the Asian and the Oceanic qualifiers for IEM Katowice.

As announced earlier this month, half of the 16 spots at IEM Katowice will be determined by a series of regional qualifiers, to be held online in Europe, North America, Asia and Oceania.

In the latter two regions, which have been allocated one slot apiece, the qualifying process will begin with two open qualifiers. The winners of these cups will then progress to a closed qualifier, joining four teams invited by ESL in a double-elimination bracket, with the final featuring a best-of-five format.

TyLoo will take part in the Asian closed qualifier for IEM Katowice

Below you can find the teams who have been invited to take part in the closed qualifiers:

Asia Oceania
China TYLOO Australia Grayhound
Mongolia TheMongolz Australia Chiefs
Singapore BOOT-d[S] Australia Tainted Minds
China Flash Australia ORDER

Teams can sign up for the Asian qualifiers by going here, with the list of countries available to participate in these tournaments being available here. The registration process for the Oceanic qualifiers can be done here.

IEM Katowice 2017 will have $500,000 on offer - the biggest prize pool in the history of the event - and will culminate with the playoffs at the Spodek Arena, in Katowice, from March 2-4.

Valiance isn't in top 15 in europe to be invited...but is the best team from balkan so maybe he will be invited...
2017-12-22 13:56
i think windigo is better, but they've got good results lately, bo3 wins vs godsent, extatus, sprout etc., pretty good so far

2017-12-22 16:58
why should they invite some random t3 team
2017-12-22 14:25
Didnt say they should invite pride/kinguin/vp
2017-12-22 14:26
delusional
2017-12-22 14:26
even izako boars are better than pride
2017-12-22 14:30
x D
2017-12-22 14:54
sure izako boars > pride > valiance
2017-12-22 14:56
valiance may win in h2h matches but pride has better achievements
2017-12-22 14:58
Valiance Serbia Twitter Ranked #37 PRIDE Poland Ranked #38 LUL
2017-12-22 14:59
how is this relevant to what i said? and anyway ranking past 25 is pretty inaccurate
2017-12-22 15:00
thats true but still even in terms of achievements valiance has better achievements
2017-12-22 15:03
how come? have valiance even went to a eu lan with their current lineup? do they even win shit tier balkan lans? winning t500 online cups dont count as achievements
2017-12-22 15:05
they do, dh atlanta 2017, same with the balkan lans,tho they lost the latest one to windigo, where are your shitty polish lans, oh right you're getting buttfucked by ago kinguin and other tier 100 teams
2017-12-22 15:06
oh sick they went to a t2 lan in atlanta where they couldnt even win a map lmao. winning shit tier lans in balkan region is hardly an achievement considering the whole region is dogshit. see pride dont win every lan in poland because they have actual competition unlike valiance and even then they manage to win some lans over teams like kinguin and ago who are both better than valiance
