Journey Till Asia Finals

Lucid Dream - SEA Qualifier

Lucid Dream has made its way into the Asia Finals by qualifying through the Southeast Asia Qualifier. It was a tough path to tread through for the Thailand based team, who went through a double elimination bracket against some of the best teams in the SEA region. 

Lucid Dream had dropped down to the lower bracket while facing off against B.O.O.T-d[S] in the semifinals and made their way to the Grand Finals through the lower bracket to lock horns against Signature Gaming, beating them in a well fought and intense BO5 series which in turn qualified them for the Asia Finals.

ViCi Gaming & CyberZen - China Qualifier

ViCi Gaming and CyberZen made their way through the uber-competitive ESL Pro League 8 - Chinese Qualifiers. The two teams beat top-tier competitors like TyLoo and MVP PK amongst other strong contenders to clinch the two slots reserved for the Chinese teams. 

ViCi Gaming was having the time of their life as they played at a whole different level, cruising through the upper bracket, where they beat both TyLoo and MVP PK to take the first of the two available slots and becoming the first team from China to qualify for the Asia Finals.

CyberZen followed up shortly through a riskier path. CyberZen who were sent to the lower bracket courtesy of ViCi Gaming played carefully, clinching every lower bracket game with a score of ‘2-1’. Playing every match under immense pressure the team held nerves of steel to make it all the way to the Asia Finals.

2ez Gaming - India Qualifier
