MVP PK to DHM Marseille Asian closed qualifier

After returning from StarSeries i-League, MVP PK went on to secure their spot at the DreamHack Masters Marseille Asian closed qualifier, via the East Asia route.

The East Asia qualifier for DreamHack Masters Marseille featured 32 teams from Mongolia, South Korea, Japan and Hong Kong on SoStronk's platform, which took place on February 25-28.

A couple of notable teams failed to meet expectations, as they fell short in the qualifier including the weakened TheMongolz in the round of 16, accompanied by the Chinese-Mongolian-Thai roster 5POWER, who suffered a 0-2 loss against Born in Mongolia in the semis.

Back home from Kiev, solo and co. crushed the East Asian qualifier

MVP PK had a flawless run on their road to the grand final with convincing victories, without their AWPer Hae-Sung "⁠HSK⁠" Kim being present. Assistant coach and analyst of the team, Soon-Woo "⁠Argency⁠" Kwon, stood in for the team during the whole qualifier. HLTV.org have reached out to the Korean organisation for further details.

Led by the legendary WeMade Fox member Keun-Chul "⁠solo⁠" Kang, the 30-year-old's side faced off against Born in Mongolia in the final stage, with Argency and himself fragging hard at the top of the scoreboard, securing the series in 2-0 fashion, without dropping a single map in the qualifier.

Asian qualifiers should only lead to (general) closed qualifiers not the actual event.

I know (hope?) you're saying that only for banter, but if the same mentality had been applied to South America, SK would be nowhere to be seen today

Yeah he used to be in their main starting lineup until he was removed and their rosters merged with MVP PK and their own (MVP Project) to try and change up their lackluster results because it was around then that only XigN, HSK, and zeff were doing all the hard fragging post +kayle -Sound that Argency and rindA started to fall off, but I guess Argency’s been practicing in his spare time based off of that match.
