'Looking For Org' Replaces Lynn Vision at PGL Major Antwerp 2022: APAC RMR
All the four teams are now set and ready to rumble!
All the four CS:GO teams competing at the PGL Major Antwerp 2022: Asia-Pacific (APAC) RMR (Regional Major Rankings) are now set, as Looking For Org replaces Lynn Vision.
The Australian CS:GO team, which was last seen competing in 'Group-A' of the ESL Pro League Season 15, has been added as a last-minute replacement for the Chinese esports organization Lynn Vision.
Last month, Lynn Vision's CS:GO team, currently located in Serbia, had revealed that it was facing visa issues due to which they would have to skip the APAC RMR. The only possible way for the players to obtain a visa was to travel back to their home country, China, but they were unable to procure any flight tickets. This meant that the only possible course of action for them was to skip the Major qualifier.
Lynn Vision replaced by Looking For Org at the PGL Major Antwerp 2022: APAC RMR
All the four teams participating in the upcoming APAC RMR have been ascertained and are ready to compete as the Australian team Looking For Org replaced Lynn Vision. The teams competing at the Major qualifier for the APAC region are as follows,
TYLOO - Chinese Qualifier
Renegades - Oceania Qualifier
IHC Esports - Asian Qualifer
Looking For Org - Replacement Invite
The four teams will be going up against each other from 15th to 16th April, competing in a double-elimination bracket for two 'Contender Status' spots at the Antwerp Major and a total prize pool of $10,000 USD (INR 7,61,299) which will be split between all the teams.
Lynn Vision has been bootcamping in Serbia since 2021, participating in various European CS:GO tournaments and this was their chance to show how much they have grown over the last few months. The team was unable to participate in the Chinese qualifier so they had fought through the Middle East qualifier by playing in unfavourable conditions with a ping of more than 100. Despite the hurdles they managed to make it through to the APAC RMR.
Unfortunately due to visa issues the team was unable to travel to Bucharest, Romania where the RMR events are being played in a studio LAN setup.
They are being replaced by worthy contenders, who were most recently spotted competing in the ESL Pro League Season 15. Despite their inexperience Looking For Org managed to win over the CS:GO community winning two maps against Fnatic and Ninjas in Pyjamas.
This certainly makes the APAC RMR very interesting and none of the teams can take things lightly, as only two will be moving ahead to compete in the PGL Major Antwerp 2022.
