StarLadder has revealed the 12 squads that have been invited to compete in the Southeast Asia, Middle East & North Africa, and East Asia qualifiers for the Asia Minors.

The path to every Major begins with the open qualifiers for the regional Minor Championships, spanning Europe, CIS, Americas, and Asia. The StarLadder Major 2019 will be no exception.

This year’s Asian Minor Qualifiers have already been revealed, with many of the first open qualifiers already underway. As always, a closed qualifier for each region will determine the final eight teams that will make it to Berlin for the Asia Minor Championship – StarLadder Major 2019.
