by Juandi

The China-based FDS Esports partners with online video platform Bilibili to host the ‘Asian Legend Challenge League’ featuring twelve invited teams with US$35,000 on the line.

The Asian Legend Challenge League will feature 12 invited teams from China, Mongolia, and Southeast Asia, including Singapore and Thailand. Set to run from November 14 to December 11, the twelve competing sides will be drawn into two-round robin groups, with all matches being played in a best-of-three (BO3) format. The top three teams from each group will advance to the double-elimination, best-of-three (BO3) playoffs. The grand final will be played in a best-of-five (BO5) series, with 1 map advantage to the upper-bracket team.

Invited Teams

Singapore’s Huat Zai will return to competitive play after they were forced to forfeit recent tournaments due to players receiving false VAC bans related to the Chinese third-party matchmaking, 5EPlay. Chinese side Wings Up will be one of the top teams to watch following their good run in the FunSpark ULTI 2020 Asia Qualifier last month, beating various big teams including TIGER and ViCi. Chinese sides Lynn Vision and Jijiehao feature in group B, together with the Philippines’ Bren Esports.
