Perfect World announce CS:GO Asia Championships with $300,000 prize pool

After the conclusion of CS:GO Asia Summit yesterday, Perfect World announced a new tournament with $300,000 prize pool held in Shanghai, China.

South Korean powerhouse MVP PK secured themselves a slot in the upcoming event after defeating Grayhound in the grand final of CAS 2018, which was confirmed by the Chinese organizer.

The official name of the new tournament is "CS:GO Asia Championships" (CAC), an invitational event that will see more world-class teams invited to play in the East. Dates have not been revealed, but it is expected to take place in June.

On Twitter, PGL has confirmed that they will be collaborating with the Chinese organizer for CS:GO Asia Championships 2018 as part of their latest project.

yes for some reason a lot of people in asia support navi mainly because they like s1mple. I'm not suprised that they chose navi first
2018-04-03 10:45
on the other hand,there r so many 1.6 players in asia(mainly in China).they like NAVI cuz markeloff,the awp legend.XD
2018-04-03 15:11
what does markeloff have to do with navi???

i agree,that is what i mean dude XD
2018-04-04 12:19
i mean,the 1.6 players love NAVI due to markeloff.This feeling for NAVI has continued until now.At least,many Chinese people around me feel like this.

I think on perfect World
2018-04-03 13:14
Obviously on perfect world.But the source data are same,so you guys won't see the sicking black blood and those strange skins because only Chinese Stream will use PW CSGO's GOTV to live, other screams will use normal CSGO client's GOTV to broadcast the match.

Black blood and strange skins, what??!
2018-04-03 14:46
Getting approved by government department is significant, so PW did these changes.But some skins changed are too ridiculous, no skull, no blood on the skins... etc. So I only play at valve's Hong Kong server, never play at PW's Shanghai server.
2018-04-03 15:05
But I saw black bloody from DAC game.
2018-04-03 15:38
why u mention " other screams " did china clone/duplicate NV scream?
2018-04-04 03:23
oh sorry... that's stream ...hahaha I type wrongly

2018-04-03 14:13
*Who is the richest country in the world?* #1 Qatar. GDP (PPP) per capita: $88,222 (estimated from 2009) ... #2 Luxembourg. GDP (PPP) per capita: $81,466. ... #3 Singapore. GDP (PPP) per capita: $56,694 (estimated from 2009) ... #4 Norway. GDP (PPP) per capita: $51,959 (estimated from 2009) ... #5 Brunei. GDP (PPP) per capita: $48,333. ... #6 United Arab Emirates.
2018-04-03 14:23
GDP per capita and GDP are not the same things
2018-04-03 16:59
These are the richest countries in the world per capita. United Arab Emirates ($68,250) ... Kuwait ($69,670) ... Norway ($70,590) ... Ireland ($72,630) ... Brunei ($76,740) ... Singapore ($90,530) ... Luxembourg ($109,190) ... Qatar ($124,930) The small Middle Eastern country often ranks as one of the richest countries in the world per capita.
2018-04-03 14:24
Qatar has 152 billion gdp, it's a lot less than USA spend on it's army. Keep trying, gupta
2018-04-03 14:29
As you can see , this is gdp per capita. NT Son of Putin
