ImageAfter the European, North American and Chinese participants for the Season 2 Championship conquered their spot, another three Asian teams join the club of the twelve best teams in the world.

While the North American teams were fighting at PAX for the top 3 spots that gave them the chance to qualify for the grand finale of Season 2, Garena G1 held the Taiwanase/Hong Kong/Macau Regionals in the other corner of the world.

Three Taiwanese teams and one squad from Hong Kong competed for a spot in Los Angeles. It was no surprise that TW Azubu Taipei Assassins won the spot for the Championship, where we will finally be able to see them fight against the best European and North American teams.

Quite the opposite happened at the South East Asia Regionals held in Vietnam yesterday. Five teams from Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines took part in a double elimination bracket. The fan-favourite SG Singapore Sentinels stormed through the winners bracket but in the grand final they were surprisingly knocked out by VN Saigon Jokers , who will now represent South East Asia in Los Angeles next month.

On Saturday we also saw the grand final of Azubu the Champions Summer 2012. As KR Azubu Frost managed to win against EU Counter Logic Gaming EU, they are now on top of the Korean Circuit Ladder and that automatically gives them a spot for the Season 2 Championship. What's more, they are also one of the 4 teams that will skip the group stages and will be placed directly in the Round of 8.

With these 3 Asian teams already qualified only one spot remains open - the second Korean one. It will be decided in the coming weeks between the 2nd and the 5th placed teams on the circuit ladder with the final being on 21 September.
