SZ Absolute replaces Flash Gaming as APAC Pro League groups are drawn

Unfortunately we have to announce a team change for the APAC Pro League finals in Sydney. After qualifying as the 3rd and final team in the Chinese qualifiers, Flash Gaming have run into visa issues regarding their trip to Australia and will therefore have to forfeit their spot at the finals. Replacing them will be SZ Absolute, as they are the first team in the succession line that is able to travel to Sydney.

Group Stage

Now without further ado, it’s time to unveil how the eight teams will be divided into two groups of four. The top two of each group will advance into the semifinals and determine the two teams going to the Global Pro League Finals in Dallas.
Group A

  • Signature
  • MVP PK
  • SZ Absolute

Group B

  • Grayhound
  • B.O.O.T-d[S]
  • Mongolz
  • Tainted Minds

The action starts tomorrow already with the first games in Group B, beginning at 10am (GMT +10). Be sure to tune in live via Facebook to find out how the APAC Pro League Finals will play out! As always, you can follow ESL CS on both Twitter and Facebook to stay in the loop regarding tournament updates, highlights and more.
