Lynn Vision snags spot in Antwerp APAC RMR

Three of the four Asia RMR spots have been decided.

Lynn Vision have qualified for the Asia Regional Major Ranking tournament for PGL Antwerp through the Middle East qualifier after defeating NASR. Although Lynn Vision are a majority Chinese team, they have been competing in Europe since October of 2021 and the open qualifiers for the RMR events were not locked to certain nationalities between sub-regions.

Although teams that have a majority of players zoned for the Asia-Pacific RMR event must still participate in qualifiers that feed into that event, they are free to choose whichever of the four open qualifiers they liked.

Lynn Vision will travel to Bucharest in April

Competing in the Middle East open qualifier alongside Lynn Vision and NASR was the majority Australian squad Looking For Org, who have been playing in Europe since January in preparation for ESL Pro League Season 15.

Other notable names competing were POGGERZ, an exDT team featuring both Joonas "⁠doto⁠" Forss and Jemi "⁠jemi⁠" Mäkinen, and a return of Divine Vendetta.

The bracket was double-elimination after hitting the top eight, with best-of-ones for each match until the grand final. NASR came from the upper bracket, defeating both Looking For Org and Divine Vendetta on their way to the grand final.

Lynn Vision recovered after a close loss to Divine Vendetta in the upper bracket and fought past POGGERZ, Looking For Org, to meet up against the mixed lineup once again and secure their place in the grand final.

All three maps between NASR and Lynn Vision went to at least 26 rounds in the final, but eventually the Chinese side were able to secure the series and a spot in the Asia RMR tournament.

 NASR K - D +/- ADR Rating 2.0
71 - 59 +12 91.2 1.24
69 - 54 +15 77.5 1.16
56 - 62 -6 68.2 1.04
57 - 63 -6 74.4 0.97
55 - 65 -10 67.3 0.91
 Lynn Vision K - D +/- ADR Rating 2.0
73 - 61 +12 88.7 1.20
66 - 59 +7 81.3 1.11
59 - 56 +3 65.7 1.08
49 - 70 -21 63.9 0.89
55 - 65 -10 65.7 0.88

The final qualifier for the Asia RMR event will be Oceania, starting March 5th. Since teams cannot switch qualifiers after playing in one, any team who competed in the first three will be unable to play in the Oceanic one, including Looking For Org.

thats a bit fucked up teams can qualify not from their own region. i know china scene is pretty stacked of solid teams behind tyloo but it just doesnt seem right to send full chinese teams in a ME-only tournament.

I assume this qualifier (like most middle eastern qualifiers) required at least 3 Middle Eastern players, so teams will grab 2 random free agent Europeans since there obviously aren't enough good Middle Eastern csgo players. I have no idea why LFO and Lynn Vision were allowed though.

Not really their fault since PGL's scheduling is ass and it was allowed. If middle east teams were any better they should have won but they didn't. As the saying goes, God made the world, everything else is made in China

Starry go to school pls
2022-02-28 21:05
in the future hopefully they can rule out non middle eastern teams in the future
