With the US$17,500 Hyperion x OEL CS:GO Launch set to take place on May 19-23, CSGO2ASIA.com presents a viewer’s guide containing a comprehensive outline of information about the inter-regional tournament
In the widely awaited event linking two continents in one server, 16 teams from APAC and Oceania will compete for the lion’s share of US$17,500. Teams will play in a double-elimination bracket with best-of-one (BO1) initial matches and progress to best-of-three (BO3) series in round three and beyond. The champions will be crowned upon the conclusion of the grand final on Sunday, May 23, in a best-of-five (BO5) series with one map advantage to the upper-bracket team.
Among participants at the event are eXTREMESLAND CS:GO Festival 2020 Oceania grand finalists, VERTEX Esports Club and Bizarre Gaming. TeamLZ (ex-Beyond) were set to represent Thailand alongside ZIGMA, but due to their move to VALORANT, subsequently replaced by last chance qualifier team LVG.
