NewHappy, ATOX through to ESL Challenger Atlanta Asia Closed Qualifier
The four teams in the Asian closed qualifier are now known.
Newhappy did so with a victory over The Huns, the new Mongolian outfit featuring some of the country's renowned players with international experience, such as Tengis "sk0R" Batjargal and Yesuntumur "nin9" Gantulga.
The Mongolians had previously beaten one of the big names in China of late, Lynn Vision, in their quarter-final best-of-one, but alas failed to make it through the final hurdle.
On the other side of the bracket ATOX won their last best-of-one in the quarterfinal against the Vietnamese side Hyper5 before taking out their Mongolian countrymen, Eruption, in the qualifying semi-final.
