PHILIPPINE CHAMPION IN IT TO WIN IT
Philippines' esports saw a major change in preparation for the Summer Championship. Spring SEA representative - Renovatio - was one of the many teams who opted to rearrange their line-up. The team dropped, Zagara master, Miseryprox in favor of JumpyLion from Renovatio 2. This clearly paid off as they swept the first Qualifiers to come out on top once again without dropping a single game. Runner-up, Skyline, looked to be even more determined than ever before as they beat out their arch enemy, Renovatio 2, to take home the second spot in the National Finals.
SINGAPORE OPENS DOORS TO NEW BLOOD
Singapore's Open Qualifiers witnessed tons of action from the contenders. All eyes were on Inquisition who recently acquired Murloc Arcanum's support player - Saelis. The trade was absolutely worth it as Inquisition won the tournament top spot. Inquisition did hit a bump in the road when they lost the first match to WAR whose roster now includes Relyzer from the Road to Blizzcon SEA representative, Relics. However, this just propelled their determination to never taste defeat again. Despite their Round 1 loss to tournament dark horse, WAR, GEIshas clawed their way through the losers bracket to finally join Inquisition and captured a ticket to the National Finals.
