Earlier last month, the third edition of the Taiwan Excellence Gaming Cup was unveiled with the addition of two more city qualifiers. Four out of six cities have had their shot and eight participants have secured their slots for the main event leaving Chennai and Kolkata to put forward two champions each!

Here's the region wise list of teams that have qualified for the main event so far :
  • Apna Apna
  • No Strat Gaming

  • Noobs
  • LINE

  • Beyond Infinity
  • Invisible Wings

  • Roar Esports
  • The Silver Lining

The Chennai Qualifiers will be taking place this weekend (26th to 28th August) at Playerz Gaming Cafe while the Kolkata Qualifiers will commence on the weekend immediately after (2nd to 4th September) at ARK8 Gaming Lounge.

None of the winners of previous editions of the TE Gaming Cup are in existence today which means that the 2016 edition is guaranteed to see a new champion.

That said, it's mostly the same players that have moved on to newer organisations albeit with a few roster shuffles.

Remember, two teams from each city will make it to the main event to battle it out for the lion's share of the INR 5,00,000/- prize pool! The best part is that each of the twelve qualified teams is guaranteed a minimum of INR 12,500/-.
