CS:GO Asia Championship 2019
The organization "Perfect World" who is the representative of the company that created the game "Valve" in China, has confirmed that after the success of the 2018 edition the CS: GO Asia Championship 2019 will be held from November 21 to 24 in the Shanghai streets, China. This time with an extra motivation, the expansion to $ 500,000 of the prize pool, which will be targeted by the eight participating teams:
- ENCE eSports
- NRG Esports
- International Invite
- International Invite
- Chinese Qualifier
The Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is one of the eSports that has the most audience worldwide, even for Asian countries where games such as LoL and Dota2 are the main attractions and even those that generate the highest income in what Awards refer. That is why Perfect World together with Valve will seek to promote the CS:GO scene in China to grow big there and greatly increase the infrastructure of electronic sports in the Asian country.
The current champion of the event "NaVi" has not been invited to this edition, who in a formidable performance by his star player Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev managed to beat the veterans of "NiP" in the grand finals with a 2-1 result.
The tournament will be played with a format widely known to players and fans. There will be two groups of double elimination format with games played with Bo3 format, the teams that finish in the first position of each group advance directly to the semifinal, while the second and third places of each group advance to the quarterfinals to play Simple elimination matches in Bo3 format.
Although the eight participating teams have not been completed, the presence of very balanced teams is observed, very similar to each other, who are perfectly familiar with the clashes they have had in the past. Some live better today than others, but the champion card we dare to say that it could be between the team of the moment of “ENCE eSports” and the Americans always hardened and currently third place in the world according to the ranking of hltv.org of "NRG Esports".
Note: The organizing committee through its twitter account a few days ago announced that the prize pool was increased to the amount of $ 500,000, which has exceeded the prize pool of the different world tournaments, such as the Dreamhack, ESL, IEM, BLAST Pro Series.
