Southeast Asia - Closed Qualifier witnessed eight teams participating in it, with the top three teams making their way to Shanghai. While three of these teams were directly invited for the event the remaining five teams qualified through the open qualifier to make it to this stage.

The group stage was quite competitive with B.O.O.T-d[S] and LaZe (Long Amazing Zebra Ears) making its way through to the playoffs from Group-A while Bren Esports along with Exodus qualified through Group-B.

Playoffs


These four teams went on to play against each other in a double-elimination bracket, resulting in B.O.O.T-d[S] and Bren Esports taking the first and second-place finishes, respectively. While a third-place match-up between Exodus and LaZe witnessed the later securing the last slot.


The playoffs were really intense as almost all the matches ended with a ‘2-1’ scoreline. But the most shocking aspect was that the Malaysian powerhouse, FrostFire, was nowhere to be seen in the meat of the action.

FrostFire couldn’t even make it through the Group Stage facing harsh defeats against LaZe and EXECUTIONERS. A better performance was expected from FrostFire but the team fell way too short, not even making it through to the Playoffs.

Note: These are the authors' personal opinions.



With this, the second set of teams make their way to eXTREMESLAND CS:GO Asia 2019 following Revolution from Vietnam.
