This week observed two WESG Regional Qualifiers coming to an end. The WESG 2018 – Indonesia Qualifier was followed by the WESG 2018 – Cambodia Qualifier.

Both the regions are ready and prepared with their line-ups for the WESG 2018 – SEA Finals which will be taking place in Kuala Lumpur in the month of November.

This is what happened in the CS:GO and Dota 2 finals at the Indonesia Qualifier.


The finals were held in-between PG BarracX and Boom ID. The two teams played three intense matches of CS with Boom ID coming out on top as the victors, taking the BO3 series with a score of ‘2-1’.

The first match was played on Cache and went the way of Boom ID. The match which witnessed both the teams go all out at each other went into overtime with Boom ID stepping up their game at the dying moments of the second overtime and taking the match with a score of ‘22-19’

The second match was a comeback by PG BarracX who held their nerves against an aggressive Boom ID. Endearing through their rushes, PG BarracX found its way into the match and countering most of these plays by Boom ID gained them a lead which they successfully converted into a win, with the scoreboard reading ‘16-10’

The decider took place on Mirage where Boom ID took the win against a struggling PG BarracX, who tried their best but were not able to gain the required momentum and went down with the score reading ‘16-11’.

Boom ID won the series and will be representing Indonesia in the upcoming WESG 2018 – SEA Finals. 

Dota 2

The finals took place between Boom ID and PG BarracX with Boom ID acing their way through the BO3 series with two comfortable wins.

In the first match, Boom ID capitalized on early rotations by Meepo, finding pickoffs in every lane. By 18-20 mins their Enigma and Magnus were ready with their Blink Daggers and this led to some amazing team fights backed with Silencer's global silence.  

The match was over soon as Alchemist wasn’t given enough time to farm and opponents lacked control in team fights because of which Boom ID was able to trample all over them and secure an easy win in the first match. 

The second match was also secured by Boom ID rather comfortably, as these guys left brood to do its thing in the mid lane while centaur manned the offlane and the other three heroes played the safelane. Some great rotations by Willow helped both centaur and brood dominate their lanes and before long the spider was leading in net worth and wreaking havoc on the opponent's base, as they called a ‘GG’ and tapped out of the second game.

Boom ID took the straight wins and moved on to represent Indonesia in the SEA Finals.

Following is the entire Indonesian Contingent which will be going to the Kuala Lumpur Finals, 

  • CS:GO – Boom ID 

  • Dota 2 – Boom ID 

  • Vain Glory – Elite 8 

  • Hearthstone - BoonnooB 

  • StarCraft 2 – LegendofZerg (Vicious) 

  • CS:GO (Women) – Female Fighters

On the Cambodian side of the regional qualifiers, this is how the CS:GO and Dota 2 teams qualified to represent their country. 


The finals were held between Ignite and The Foxes

The first match took place on Mirage where Foxes beat Ignite in quite a convincing manner. Foxes who were confident since the start ran basic textbook plays and overwhelmed their opponents with superior skills and teamwork, taking them down with a score of ‘16-8’.

The next match was played on Cache where Foxes were able to dominate Ignite even harder, as they took the win single-handedly with the scoreboard reading ‘16-4’

The Foxes will be moving on to represent Cambodia as they take down Ignite with an easy ‘2-0’.

Dota 2

The Uchiha Clan went up against Intelligenc Quotient in a BO3, which went the way of the fan favourites Uchiha Clan without much competition being faced from IQ. 

The first game witnessed Uchiha Clan running a drow strat which worked in their favor as they were successfully able to win the early game with Visage dominating the mid lane while some clutch rotations from both wyvern and venge helped the team counter initiate and gank repeatedly, that along with the ability to take down towers quickly ensured them the victory in the first match. 

The second match followed the footsteps of the first one as Uchiha Clan were able to win their lanes again,  backed by better picks and an even better sync in-between the team members as they took down IQ around the 45-minute mark. 

Uchiha Clan will be representing Cambodia at the SEA Finals in Kuala Lumpur.

This is the entire Cambodian line-up which will be moving on to the SEA Finals, 

  • CS:GO – The Foxes 

  • Dota 2 – Intelligenc Quotient 

  • Vain Glory – Senisters
