Over the course of the next six days, 16 teams will be fighting for their share of the US$25,000 prize pool in the AfreecaTV SEA Invitational, including the likes of Bleed Esports, Fancy United Esports, and RRQ.
The AfreecaTV SEA Invitational is set to begin with 16 teams from all over Southeast Asia contending for the lion’s share of the US$25,000 prize pool. The groups will run over the course of the next two days, with the top eight teams making it to the best-of-three single-elimination playoffs held on December 1-4.
The group stage of the tournament will see the 16 teams split into four groups of four. MiTH have been placed in the same group as Team NKT, Bigetron Arctic, and South Built Esports, who will be fielding George “Georggyyy” Lachica as a stand-in. Todak were initially set to represent the MY/SG region alongside Bleed Esports, but due to scheduling issues, opted to skip the tournament, subsequently replaced by Phoomphat “qqGOD” Phojjanart’s NKT.
As for Group B, it will feature RRQ, FULL SENSE, BOOM Esports, and Vietnam’s Wolves X, who will face off for two spots in the playoffs. Alter Ego have been paired up with SR Nacague, FW Esports, and Vietnam-based Dominus Esports in Group C – all of whom currently reside outside of the top 30 of VLR’s APAC ranking.
Bleed Esports will be headlining Group D, with the Singaporean squad coming into the event as one of the favorites after winning two OFF//SEASON titles in TEC Challenger Series 9 and Skyesports SEA Championship. Fancy United Esports and Dewa United from Indonesia will also be joining XERXIA, who will be making their new roster debut, here in this tournament.
