ORDER win WESG APAC Regional Finals

ORDER triumph over MVP PK 2-0 in the grand final of WESG 2017 Asia-Pacific Regional Finals (19-17 de_train and 16-10 de_nuke).

Held at the Fangyuan Sports Center in Jiaozhou, Qingdao, China from January 11-14, the WESG 2017 Asia-Pacific Regional Finals (including female) witnessed 27 teams duke it out for the prize money and the World Finals' spots. 

With Gambit and Flash being absent, notable teams such as MVP PK, ORDER, and BOOT-d[S]  who attended the most recent Asia Minor  became the next favourites in line to win the $92,500 tournament.

ORDER debut with an international win under their belt

The grand finalists of the competition both came from Group A's top two teams, which saw the top seed MVP PK defeat New4 and BOOT-d[S] during their playoffs' run in the quarter-finals and semis.

ORDER, who had two substitutes for the Chinese event in the form of Chiefs member Liam "malta" Schembri and Grayhound's Callum "BURNRUOk" Henderson, kicked off their debut with a second place finish in Group A following a 16-13 loss on Mirage to the Koreans.

The mixed Australian roster went on to beat LEOPARD 2-0 in Round of 12, MAX 2-1 in the quarter-final, and NSPR 2-0 in the semis. Led by the highest rated player of the event (of 1.40), Jay "Liazz" Tregillgas' side successfully completed their revenge against ex-WeMade Fox member Keun-Chul "solo" Kang and company in the grand final.

10 fucking spots for Asia-Pacific!??? These guys have the most money to throw in one single event, out of all tournament organizers, but the minds behind this aren't the smartest. Imagine if they made better proportion of slots? We would see the entire top30 attending one awesome lan. Instead, we have 20 bad teams (or more).

It never worked and I think it never will. WCG tried the same for years, it worked for some time but in every event some teams had to play with a stand-in (or two!) due to the one nationality rule. Also, the quality of the teams will always be lower than other tournaments, due to have so many spots to countries with bad teams only, and only one spot as well for countries with good teams. They should at least just add more spots to countries like Denmark, Sweden, USA, Brazil and Poland. Doing this, we would see a much higher level tournament.
