Invites revealed for three Asia Minor closed qualifiers

StarLadder has revealed the 12 squads that have been invited to compete in the Southeast Asia, Middle East & North Africa, and East Asia qualifiers for the Asia Minors.

Each of these qualifiers will feature a total of eight participants, four invited and four admitted via open qualifiers, and have a single spot at the Asia Minor on the line.

HLTV.org knows that the invites to the Central & South Africa, Oceania and China qualifiers will be announced at a later date, with the latter two determining two participants each at the Minor.

MVP PK will look to top the East Asia closed qualifier

The $50,000 regional precursor event to the StarLadder Major will take place on July 24-28, offering two spots in the New Challengers stage, as well as a Minors' play-in slot for the third-placed team.

Below are all invited sides for the Southeast Asian, Middle East & North African and East Asian closed qualifiers:

East Asia

nice invites!

2019-05-13 04:12
Yeah, there are some recognizable teams, but I wouldn't count on damn near any of them to make it to the major, other than MVP or BOOT (if the stars align).

You're referring to the New Legends stage right?
2019-05-13 05:57
No, the New Challengers stage. What used to be the Major Qualifier. I do not have any confidence that any of these teams will make it to the New Legends stage. I think MVP and BOOT could each make it to the minor via their respective regions (East Asia/SEA), but I think even if they do end up getting 1st/2nd place in the Asian Minor, or the 3rd-place play-in for that matter, I think that they'd be eliminated quite early-on.
2019-05-13 10:18
Don't 3 or 6 of these teams qualify to play with the invited teams like tyloo, vici, grayhound and other australian teams?
2019-05-13 12:27
That's what I meant, but I just screwed up the wording :6

even them, the only reason they're top 30 is because they play in asia and get token asian invites. If they were a european team they wouldn't be shit
