CyberZen win WESG 2018 China Finals

CyberZen have won the WESG 2018 China Regional Finals over ViCi in the grand final, becoming the first team to qualify for the global finals in March 2019.

The sixteen-team Chinese LAN competition took place in Suzhou from October 1-3, with several notable teams and players in attendance including the likes of TYLOO and 1.6 veteran RunBo "⁠sakula⁠" Wu in action for this specific event with NIRVANA.

On day one, TYLOO was sent home early after failing to make it out of their group, while fielding VAC banned player Quanqing "⁠qz⁠" Wu and Yue "⁠AE⁠" Yu as stand-ins. They defeated YQF, but lost to CyberZen and New4, who progressed on to the BO3 single-elimination playoffs.

CyberZen, who recently added Lei "⁠bottle⁠" Mao to their active roster, managed to cross out QiFang "⁠Karsa⁠" Su's EHOME in the quarter-finals and YuLun "⁠Summer⁠" Cai's Flash in the semis, 2-1.

Without their full strength in Andrew "⁠Kaze⁠" Khong and WingHei "⁠Freeman⁠" Cheung, ViCi tried to make their situation work with their former QeeYou comrades Wei "⁠Reaction⁠" Peng and JunBen "⁠MoriartyS⁠" Lin. ViCi topped Group B undefeated and ran over New4 in the quarters and the Mongolian-less 5POWER in the semis, 2-0, respectively.

However, in the face of Bin "⁠Savage⁠" Liu's men and bottle stepping up to the plate in the grand final, ViCi did not deliver on Train, but displayed a stronger performance on Inferno, which went to all thirty rounds in favour of CyberZen being crowned as the eventual winners.

Isn't it WESG which still hasn't paid the players for the 2018 edition ?
2018-10-03 18:15
I think they finally received the money the problem was they had to contact the government the send large amounts of money out of China.

I know but 3 of them were on this WESG
2018-10-03 18:44
Xcc and BnTeT are the core of the team.
2018-10-03 16:42
hard to refute that. Though one can defend them by claiming them played causally, bo1 matches are good for upset and so on, it is hard to justify the one-day trip...
2018-10-03 18:05
its true but cannot be reflected by this tournament, especially with the stand-in of qz, which could probably send any team home as a teammate.

Many people would say that without XCC and BNTET, TYLOO will not get good results, I don't think so. Now the lineup of TYLOO has not yet run for a week. Without good grades, I think it is normal.

Let's get back to earth, polish players carry this team almost all way long, maybe sometimes somebody and Mo could do the same thing. DD is not what he was 2 years ago. Ofc we all know it's tyloo help XCC and bntet come to this level, but for now, they are the top players in this team.

it will be different if bottle fight for tyloo

i guess he just want to find a chance to be an offical player in a team rather than some fireman role.

qz already been punlished for what he done. For this time, he just stand in for fun, not some offical return as a pro. Also they are out in the first stage. So I hope we all try not to be so mean.
