Schedule, format for Asia Championships announced
Perfect World has announced the complete schedule and the tournament format for the 2018 CS:GO Asia Championships.
Running from June 14-18 at the Shanghai Indoor Stadium, the event will feature eight teams, five invited and three qualified, who will square off for the lion's share of a $300,000 prize fund.
The tournament will begin with a double-elimination, best-of-three group stage, with the upper bracket winner automatically progressing to the semi-finals, while the runners-up and the third-placed sides will advance to the first round of the playoffs, which will determine the final two teams making it to the last-four stage.
