ESEA Season 34: Open Division Asia-Pacific playoffs begin on Thursday, Jul 2nd with sixteen teams vying for the top spot.
ESEA Season 34 will feature $180,000 in prizes; out of this, $4,500 will be set aside for the Asia-Pacific Open. $3,000 will be awarded to 1st place and $1,500 to 2nd.
The playoffs will be an interesting one to watch as both old and new teams will make an appearance; familiar teams like Beyond Esports, TIGER, and Mazaalai are set to enter the fray. Newer teams like Huat Zai and Paper Rex will have to prove their mettle in the coming days.
