Flash to miss WESG APAC Regional Finals

Flash Gaming have confirmed that they will skip WESG Asia-Pacific Regional Finals due to a schedule conflict with the ELEAGUE Major, HLTV.org has learned.

The confirmation follows Flash's decision to replace TYLOO at the ELEAGUE Major 2018 Main Qualifier, an event that will run from January 12-15, whilst the WESG Asia-Pacific Regional Finals will take place on January 11-14, causing a schedule clash for the Chinese squad.

Flash pull out of WESG APAC Regional Finals

Considered as one of the favorites to qualify for the WESG 2017 World Finals from the region, Flash will miss out on attending the event after reigning Major champions Gambit revealed yesterday that they could not participate too, due to visa issues.

This leaves WESG Asia-Pacific Regional Finals with eighteen teams for the event at Fangyuan Sports Centre held in Jiaozhou, Qingdao, China. You can see the current list of teams below:

China New4 Malaysia Fire Dragoon
Japan SCARZ Absolute Jordan Chosen5
New Zealand Parallax Australia ORDER
Australia Control Vietnam GameTV
Vietnam UTM Indonesia Recca
Singapore BOOT-d[S] Philippines Mineski
Korea MVP PK Iran LEOPARD

Withdraw from USD 1.5m tournament that they actually have a good chance of winning if not at least do well at, to play in a USD 1m major where they are sure to bomb out 0-3 in the qualifier and they are not even gettin* sticker money

i think c9 the best team and they are not even close to tier1... also VP,BIG,Envy etc... they are far far away from tier1

C9 and VP are both T1. Big and Envy are both T2.

VP and C9 never ever close to SK,Astralis or FaZe in bo3 or bo5 then how the fuck they tier1? :D

They are both frequently invited teams at Tier 1 events, how are they not Tier 1?

with this logic top15 is tier1 for you?

With this logic any team that is invited to a Tier 1 event is a Tier 1 team.

when team like VP constantly go out with 0:3 0:4 or anything like this from a tier1 tournament... they are not even close to tier1 for me...

ye but when you are top4 every time you are closer to tier1 than you are out of group everytime :D

You are both Tier 1 as long as you are invited to the same Tier 1 tournament :).

I don't think Tier 2 or 3 teams are Tier 1, that would be kind of weird. NaVi is definately a Tier 1 team, Hellraisers doesn't really get too many invites.

Nope, Gambit doesn't play the Major until January 19-22. Just WESG representatives failing to send the documents they needed to acquire their visas.
