The grand final will see 10 nations and a prize pool of US$105,000. Registration for the event has begun but dates for the qualifiers have not yet been revealed.

The World Electronic Sports Games (WESG) have announced the qualifiers for South East Asia. Similar to last year, the ten contestants will be determined via national qualifiers that will be held in the following countries:

🇧🇳 Brunei
🇰🇭 Cambodia
🇮🇩 Indonesia
🇱🇦 Laos
🇲🇾 Malaysia
🇲🇲 Myanmar
🇵🇭 Philippines
🇸🇬 Singapore
🇹🇭 Thailand
🇻🇳 Vietnam

It is not yet clear whether these will be LAN qualifiers, or online, or both.

Registration for the qualifiers in Laos and Cambodia will close on Thursday, July 25, while in the remaining countries, the signup period will be open until the end of the month.

Final dates for the Southeast Asia Finals have not yet been disclosed. The WESG officials have also not announced how many teams will qualify for the main event, which will be held in March 2020. An exciting change to this years event, however, is the revised nationality rules. This year’s event allows for two foreign nationals to be part of a countries roster.

Interested participants can register here on the official WESG SEA portal, while qualifiers for the rest of Asia are yet to be released. Participants can also keep up to date with everything WESG through the links below:
