Vision Studio and Chinese streaming platform Douyu have partnered up to launch the Asian Development League.

The online event will consist of three phases: closed qualifier, main stage and the finals. Eight Asian teams will be split into two groups, featuring a GSL format for the closed qualifier, held on October 15-30.

The top two teams from each group will move on to the main stage, joining eight other invited teams including TYLOO and BOOT-d[S]. The 12-team showdown will feature a BO3 round-robin format from October 31 to December 1.

Invites have been sent out for the closed qualifier and main stage

The top four teams advance to the BO3 double-elimination finals, which is set to run from December 2-5. The organisers aim "to promote Chinese CS:GO and to increase the bonds between Asian teams while building a systematic pro league where they can provide new fresh blood to the region".

Here are the closed stage invites:

Below are the invitations to the main component as follows:

The 175,000 CNY (~$25,300) prize pool will be distributed in the following way:

1. 70,000 CNY (~$10,110)
2. 35,000 CNY (~$5,055)
3-4. 18,750 CNY (~$2,710)
5-8. 9,375 CNY (~$1,355)

they are so bad i will not expect anything
2018-10-10 13:05
Now that they get salaries and can fully focus on cs i hope that they develop their tactics and their game in overall. Because thats theyre chance now. They cant let this opportunity slip away. My only wish would be getting machinegun and zilkenberg back
