Skyesports SEA Championship - Complete Details
Initially, the online tournament which is officially a part of the VCT Offseason circuit featured teams only from the SEA region but later Indian teams were also added to the mix.
Two qualifiers were held to see which teams qualify for the Skyesports SEA Championship, one each for SEA and India. Here are the four teams that survived the qualification rounds,
Made in Thailand | SEA Qualifier | Thailand
Bleed Esports | SEA Qualifier | Singapore
GodSquad (Global Esports) | India Qualifier | India
Velocity Gaming | India Qualifier | India
The tournament will be taking place from 23rd to 25th November following a double-elimination format.
23rd November - Upper Bracket Semifinals
24th November - Lower Bracket Semifinal, Upper Bracket Final
25th November - Lower Bracket Final, Grand Final
With only four teams participating in the main event, the Skyesports SEA Championship will be following a straight forward double-elimination bracket.
All matches will be featuring a best-of-three series except for the grand finals which will witness a best-of-five faceoff.
The winners of the grand finals will be walking away with the lion's share of the prize pool along with bragging rights.
The tournament will be featuring a total prize pool of $22,500 USD which will be divided only between the finalists. Apart from this, a small amount will also be rewarded to the MVP (Most Valuable Player) and MVL () of the tournament.
It will be interesting to see how the Indian teams fare against their Southeast Asian counterparts. Based on a few recent performances, GodSquad and Velocity seem to have a good enough chance to walk away as the champions. Having said that the path ahead will certainly not be easy and the competition will be tough.
