WESG APAC Regional Finals set to start*

January 10th, 2018 05:57

WESG Asia-Pacific Regional Finals is set to kick off tomorrow in Jiaozhou, Qingdao, China from January 11-14. We have compiled all the information you need to know about the tournament.

The Chinese event will take place at Fangyuan Sports Center, giving out ten qualification spots to the World Finals and two spots to the female World Finals in March. With reigning Major champions Gambit and Chinese favorites Flash pulling out of the event, the organisers have decided to bring in MAX as a last-minute replacement for the Chinese side. 

With Gambit gone, moxie and co. have an easier group for WESG APAC Finals

Group A Group B
Korea MVP PK Australia Control

tl;dr re: Streams WESG have not supplied a English broadcast for this event and so there will be limited ways of getting coverage. twitch.tv/CappingTV will bring Semi/Grand Final coverage from the China stream but other then that we're all in the dark.
