First, in the major, the 16 participating teams are divided into four groups,group stage” was held. There will be a double round robin (2 matches per round-robin) within each group. The top two teams from this group stage, a total of eight teams, will advance to the next playoff tournament.

Japan team CAG as Asia’s topGroup Awas incorporated intoCAG’s rival, who is ranked 14th in the world at the moment, has been gaining strength this year in the European Siege world, which is full of powerhouses.MNM Gaming(World ranking 10th).Despite being a veteran of South America, he overcame the slump and made a comeback to the majors with the current roster.black dragons(World ranking 35th).And put former player supr as general manager, and in stage 3, he finished 2nd in North America.Soniqs(World ranking 18th).

Looking at the ranking by region, CAG, which was ranked first in league matches within the Asian region, has the most influence within the group. But on the other hand, CAG have never made it past the group stage in any major they’ve played in, so whoever they face is something to keep an eye on. Furthermore, the Asian team as a whole has never had a chance to win a major title, so I’m looking forward to seeing them bring the crown back to Asia this time.
