The Chinese Qualifier for CS:GO Asia Championships 2019 came to an end today with ViCi Gaming making its way through to the main event after defeating EHOME in a best-of-five finale.

The closed qualifier which started a few days back on 1st November witnessed a total of eight Chinese teams competing for a single spot in the main event. Out of these eight teams, three were direct invites while the remaining five had made their way through the open qualifiers.

These eight teams competed against each other in a double-elimination, best of three series with the finale being a five-game match-up. All the competing teams gave it their best with ViCi and Ehome reaching the finale.

The two teams had gone up against each other once before in the Upper Bracket Finals where Ehome had made short work of ViCi, defeating them in consecutive games to send them down to the lower bracket.

ViCi defeated 5Power Gaming in the Lower Bracket Finals to face Ehome again in a five-game series with the latter having a one-game advantage by default. What came next was a brutal onslaught by ViCi who played a quick, aggressive game throughout the next three maps to cut short Ehome’s journey and grab the one available slot.

Default Win - Ehome
ViCi Gaming - 16
Ehome - 10
ViCi Gaming - 16
Ehome - 14

With this, they will be joining the seven other teams who have all been directly invited for the $500,000 tournament, all set to take place from 21st-24th November at Jing’an Sports Center in Shanghai, China.
