- East Asia- Japan, Taiwan, Korea
- Oceania- Australia, New Zealand
- Rest of Asia- India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Maldives etc
Every region will feature a group stage, with teams assigned to a random group in their region. Here each team will play a round robin BO1, with the top two teams of each group moving to a single elimination grid. Here they will be joined by the two teams of the Indian Qualifiers (more information below) The top two teams from this elimination grid will advance to the LAN finals in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.
The LAN finals held on November 12th and 13th will feature 10 teams across the 5 regions along with 2 invited professional teams who will then battle it out for a share of the $200,000 prize pool. ($150,000 for Dota 2 and $50,000 for CS:GO)
The Road to Kuala Lumpur will be long and and hard. Teams wanting to qualify through the Indian Qualifier will have to go through this process.
The first stage would be the online qualifiers organised by Mag Gaming and Drag2Death (for Dota2 and CS:GO respectively) on the 1oth and 18th of September. The top two teams of each qualifier will proceed to a LAN tournament held at Blitz Cafe, Bangalore.
The four teams will play each other in a double elimination bracket. The top two teams will receive prizes and will proceed to the next stage. The Elimination Grid.
The top two teams from the India LAN will then move on to play in the elimination grid with the other teams of the Rest of Asia Region. The top two teams from this single elimination tournament will travel to Kuala Lumpur Malaysia to play the LAN.
Although the road is long, this is a golden opportunity for teams from India to get exposure and play with some on the best in the world. So what are you waiting for?
