ZOTAC Cup Masters quarter-final matchups drawn

The organizers of ZOTAC Cup Masters 2018 Grand Finals have drawn the quarter-final matchups of the $300,000 tournament live on stream.

The tournament taking place in Hong Kong from August 24-26 will be played in a single elimination bracket, with the quarter-finals and semi-finals featuring best-of-three series, and the grand final played in a best-of-five.

Virtus.pro's debut with their newest addition, snatchie, will be against MVP PK

With less than two weeks to go, the organizers have drawn the quarter-final matchups live on stream earlier today. The first stage of the bracket will see TYLOO face Kinguin, while Ghost — who have filled the gap left by Matt "Pollo" Wilson with Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend — will take on OpTic.

In the other half of the bracket, Virtus.pro will lock horns with MVP PK, and MIBR will face Flash.

The quarter-final matchups according to bracket order are:

China TYLOO vs. Poland Kinguin
Denmark OpTic vs. Canada Ghost
Poland Virtus.pro vs. Korea MVP PK
Brazil MIBR vs. China Flash

optic only will win a single map against mibr, they have more experience...
2018-08-13 19:19
Vp has more experience than the mdl mix teams, but they still lose And here we are talking actual pros so dont be so confident
2018-08-13 19:47

Btw pronax also carried lmao. Where is M1B7 now? Lurking in t4 getting destroyed by BIG?
2018-08-13 20:49
"taco/pronax carryed bla bla bla" Do u know how professional cs works? S1mple is an awesome fragger, but he isnt even close to pronax and taco in terms of archievements in this game. Mibr will be a top contender again sooner or later, dont worry
2018-08-13 21:02
"S1mple is an awesome fragger, but he isnt even close to pronax and taco in terms of archievements in this game" Yes, because his team is terrible. And don't worry. You won't ever have to sweat a raindrop with that mentality. M1B7 won't be back.
2018-08-13 21:44
"his team is terrible" they are winning events, wtf are u talking about. Na'vi has been trash for 2 years, now they finnaly have a decent team, ur retardness is miles ahead from the worst mibr fans lmao. Mibr will be a top team again because they are able to do every change needed for it, but will take time and I've been saying that since taco left. After 2 years smashing teams like Natus Vincere aka, in ur conception, S1mple Vincere, they need to reinvent/readapt themselves, what will happen sooner or later, u admiting it or dont.
2018-08-13 22:09
I feel like if you do not calle the other person retarded during an argument, you automatically lose it.
2018-08-16 23:27
i said it one time on the discussion, i dont get ur point ad hominem hltv pick both
