eXTREMESLAND 2019 announced with $100,000 prize pool
The fourth edition of eXTREMESLAND has been revealed, with the tournament set to feature numerous online qualifiers and 16 Asian teams competing at the LAN finals in Shanghai, China in November.
eXTREMESLAND CS:GO Asia Open 2019, as it is fully named, is focused on developing the CS:GO community in Asia, and is "expecting to have more than 30 Asian countries" participate in the tournament through local qualifiers, dubbed the "preliminary stage".
The preliminary stage will start in August and last until October when all 16 teams for the final event will be known. A total of $100,000 will be up for grabs at the LAN, which will take place from 14-17 November in Shanghai, China.
Last year's eXTREMESLAND event was won by MVP PK who took down NASR in the grand final, however, the main talking point of the tournament was the now infamous incident in which Nikhil "forsaken" Kumawat was caught cheating by the tournament admins.
Additional information about the tournament and the regional qualifiers is set to be announced soon, with eXTREMESLAND's social media the best place to stay up-to-date on it.
