5POWER defeat ViCi to qualify for WESG 2018 World Finals

5POWER won the four-team WESG 2018 China Qualifier #2, a last chance qualifier, to clinch a spot in the $890,000 World Finals.

The WESG 2018 China Qualifier #2 featured four teams, 5POWER, BTRG.IMBA, ViCi, and EHOME, who fought in a single elimination bracket for a spot in the grand finals.

5POWER and ViCi—who were using Hui "DD" Wu and Ke "captainMo" Liu as stand-ins for Andrew "Kaze" Khong and WingHei "Freeman" Cheung—kicked the tournament off by winning their semi-final matches, defeating EHOME and BTRG.IMBA, respectively, to move on to the final.

The two teams then clashed on Mirage and Inferno. The first of the two, Mirage, in which HongGuang "Stevie" Li led the boards with a 1.51 rating and 31 frags, saw his team take the lead in the series after closing it out 16-13.

The second map, ViCi's pick, was equally fought out, going all the way to triple overtime before 5POWER could close it out, 25-22, to claim the spot at the WESG 2018 World Finals. The tournament, which only has one spot left to be filled by an invited team, will take place on March 11-17 in Chongqing, China.

2019-02-22 19:13
well,Not necessarily. captain MO retired a few month ago and he was casting for the Major.( 8pm to 5am) DD haven't played CS in a month cuz he wanted to chill and relax. so yeah, both were good player but none of them is at their best form.

Yeah all players have to be from one exactly same region. Players from Hong Kong, Macaw and Taiwan can not even play for mainland Chinese teams. BTW tyloo wasn’t even qualified in the previous stage of this tournament.

It's WESG Finals, only national rosters allowed. It means that: 1. ViCi can only use full Chinese roster. 2. If kaze wants to compete, he'll have to qualify with a Malaysian team. 3. If Freeman wants to compete, he'll have to qualify with a team from Hong Kong.
