Without further ado, let’s take a look at look at this year’s CSGO Asia championship.

The schedule and format

The CSGO 2019 Asia Championship kicks off on the 20th of November 2019 and will run up until the 24th. This kicks off with a group stage, whereby two groups made up of four teams will first play against one another over the first two days of the tournament. The tournament will then progress into the play-off stage, with a two-day break separating these periods.  

Group Stage

– Two double-elimination format (GSL) groups (4 teams each)

– All matches are Best-of-Three.

– Top team from each group advances to the semi-finals

– 2nd & 3rd teams from each group advance to the quarterfinals

Playoffs

– Single-Elimination bracket

– All matches are Best-of-Three

Group A

  • Evil Geniuses
  • G2 Esports
  • MIBR
  • TYLOO

Group B

  • AVANGAR
  • ENCE
  • mousesports
  • ViCi Gaming

The winners of each group will proceed directly to the semi-finals. However, the first round of play-offs, that is due to start on November 23rd, will see the teams who came in second and third place in each group play an extra quarterfinals match. With the second team in one group playing against the third team in the other group and vice versa. The winner of these matches will then be eligible for a place in the semi-finals against the teams already qualified in these spots.

Of course, whoever comes out on top in these semi-final head-to-heads will qualify for the final. These two teams play once more and the winner of the final will win the top prize pool- which is worth a massive $150,000 in winnings. While the second-place winner will take home a tidy $60,000 sum, and 3rd and 4th place finishers will take home a still respectable $30,000 apiece. With this considered, qualifying for the semi-finals is a good enough finish to take home a share of the winnings.

Participants

The participants in this CSGO tournament come from across the world, with the teams being made up of a wide selection of nations. There are two teams who will have home advantage of sorts, Tyloo Gaming and ViCi Gaming, these earned the spots as Chinese Invite and Chine Qualifier respectively. We find then 6 international teams, who have earnt the International Invite spots.

There is ENCE made up exclusively of Finnish players, MIBR who is a Brazilian outfit, and Avangar, who are made up of 6 Kazhak players and one Russian. You then have the Evil Geniuses, G2 esports, and Mousesports. These have a varied collection of nationalities within their teams the first of these two are made up mainly of North American and French players, while Mousesports offers a team culminating of various countries across Europe. As such, the tournament is very much a mixed bag.

It is these teams with a more mixed selection of players that are looking like the favourites according to the bookmakers. Evil Geniuses are currently the favourites to take home that top prize, while Mousesports and G2 are second and third favourites to come out of CSGO 2019 Asia Championship as champions. 

Meanwhile, the two Chinese teams, Tyloo and ViCi Gaming, as things stand, are the teams that look like they are set for an early exit at the group stage. For Tyloo, their fate looks especially sealed early on as they have been placed in the same group as both the Evil Geniuses and G2, alongside the Brazillian, MIBR who also have had a good track record in recent years. We won’t have long to find out with the action kicking off imminently!
