D13, Wings Up, New Happy, Checkmate secure spots at PWL CS:GO Season 1 Playoffs

by Juandi

PWL CS:GO Season 1 saw D13, Wings Up, New Happy, and Checkmate dominating the first and second qualifiers without any significant threat in the process.

With the conclusion of PWL CS:GO Season 1, D13 and Wings Up have booked in two out of eight team slots in the Valve RMR event of the year. In the process, the Mongolian squad crushed SHPL, Lynn Vision, and Checkmate. On the other hand, Wings Up took down Phoenix Gaming, NG Esports, and Team LZ.

Meanwhile, the second qualifier saw many upsets happening. Both NG Esports and Huat Zai will miss the first RMR Event of the year after being eliminated by New Happy. Lynn Vision and After Gaming were close in securing their spot in the playoffs, but were eliminated against New Happy and Checkmate, respectively, in the decider series.

With their recent performance, D13 were undoubtedly the expected team to set foot in the playoffs. In recent months, Munkhtamir “tamir” Ganbaatar-led squad were able to show promising results by winning Huya DarkHorse League Season 8 and various standings at other competitions. One tournament that raised an eyebrow was their outstanding results in the ESEA Season 36 Open European Division Playoffs, placing 9th-16th among 709 registered teams.

While Wings Up had performed slightly below expectations in recent months, PWL CS:GO Season 1 Open Qualifier 1’s results have proved it wrong and strengthen their position as a relevant team in the highest level of Asian CS:GO. In the process, they had revenged their loss against Team LZ in Funspark ULTI 2021, who had costed them a spot in the playoffs.

The East Asian quartet will be joined by six other teams in the competition, consisting of TYLOO, ViCi Gaming, Renewal, and Invictus Gaming. To put it in another way, the absence of non-East Asian teams will give a hard slap to the Southeast Asian scene, not to mention the constant defeats in the first and second qualifiers by Chinese and Mongolian teams. Having said that, every team still has their chance to bring something new up in the upcoming three RMR Series events.

With the first RMR Playoffs to commence soon, all teams will focus on securing as many RMR Points as possible in the upcoming three RMR Series events, leading to a spot at PGL Major Stockholm, which is scheduled to take place in October this year.

The team list for the Perfect World League (PWL) CS:GO Season 1 Playoffs looks as follows:

🇨🇳 TYLOO🇲🇳 D13 Esports
🇨🇳 ViCi Gaming🇨🇳 Wings Up Gaming
🇲🇳 Renewal🇨🇳 New Happy
🇨🇳 Invictus Gaming🇲🇳 Checkmate
