TYLOO have secured one of the two Asian spots at StarSeries i-League Season 6 following a 2-1 win over MVP PK (Mirage 16-2, Inferno 3-16, Train 16-8) in the upper bracket final of the regional qualifier.
The StarSeries i-League S6 Asia qualifier began with a 16-team GSL group stage, from where some of the main favorites advanced to the playoffs without much trouble, such as TYLOO, BOOT-d[S], and Flash, with MVP PK also making it through despite a loss to CyberZen in Group B.
Only the upper bracket of the double-elimination playoffs has been played out thus far. TYLOO and MVP PK passed the quarter-finals as well as the semi-finals, with the latter defeating Flash and BOOT-d[S] on the way to the upper final.
The two sides then locked horns for one of the two spots allocated to Asia at the $300,000 event. Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand & co. kicked things off with a dominant win on Mirage following a near-perfect CT side, while MVP PK responded with a similarly convincing offense on their pick, Inferno.
It came down to Train, where Chinese-Indonesian team grabbed nine rounds on the defense. After losing the following pistol round, TYLOO went on a seven-round streak to secure their berth at StarSeries with a 2-1 victory.
The lower bracket of the qualifier will now follow with Beyond versus Flash taking place later on Saturday. The other spot at the main event will be determined on Monday in the consolidation final, where MVP PK are waiting for their opponent.
