Team Secret earned the Major invitation while also finishing the tournament without a single series loss. In 2nd place is Alliance, 3rd is Team Liquid, and 4th is Team Nigma. The series, which took place between OG and Secret this week, gave the fans some action packed moments. Losing the series, OG had to play tie-breaker games. Unfortunately, the team lost to Liquid and will not be able to receive a direct invite to Singapore Major.

Chinese region is 2 weeks behind the other regions due to the Chinese New year. There were some exciting games, however. Vici Gaming, who defeated Team Aster, managed to take the 2nd place, but the difference between them is thinner than a hair at this point. Invictus Gaming seems to be the first in the region right now. I don’t think that will change. Elephant, which was created by the famous players of the Chinese region, is disappointingly at 4th place.

Evil Geniuses, Quincy Crew, and Undying played the tie-breaker games among themselves to determine who gets the Major invitation. Evil Geniuses beat both teams and came out first. They are going to the play-offs while Quincy Crew finished second, going into the group stage. Unfortunately, Undying will miss the first Major of the season.

Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS)

Although it was certain that both Virtus Pro and NAVI would go to the Major tournament, the series between the two teams was eagerly awaited by many. Virtus Pro handed a heavy defeat to NAVI. I hope two teams will face each other once again in the Major.

AS Monaco Gambit and Team Spirit faced off in the BO3 series to determine the region’s third and final team to go to the Singapore Major. Monaco Gambit beat the Spirit team 2-1 and secured their invitation to the Major.

Team Empire faced Team Unique in a BO3 series to determine the team that finished the tournament in seventh place. Unique managed to get a 2-1 victory in the series and will therefore remain in the upper-division. Unfortunately, Empire will play in the lower division in the next season.

Thus, it became clear which teams, except for the Chinese region, will go to the Singapore Major. Although we have witnessed some good games in this tournament, it is clear where the real action will take place. We will be sharing a separate article when the Chinese invitations are also set in place.
