After successfully qualifying for the Zen Esports Network League which will be held in Australia, Recca Esports also participated in another prestigious event, namely the PGL Asia Minor Championship for the SEA and India regions which was attended by 128 teams.
But what a shame the trip Recca Esports had to stop in the final round where they lost to the team from Thailand 7642 with a final score of 2-0. Even if, for example, Recca Esports can win, they will have the opportunity to take part in the main PGL Asia Minor Championship event in early June in China.
Recca Esports’ journey was smooth until finally meeting NXL>, who is also a well-known Indonesian CS: GO team. Recca managed to beat them with a convincing score (16-3 and 16-8).
In the final round that brought 7642 together, Recca immediately fell behind in the first quarter to take the Inferno map with a score of 9-6. Even though they had chased and had a defuse by Sys in round 27, they had to admit their opponent with a score of 16-12.
And in the second map, Recca Esports is far behind with a score of 11-4. Recca Esports caught up with a score of 12-10. But unfortunately 7642 was suddenly able to turn things around and ensure they escaped with a score of 16-10. As information, 7642 also defeated the famous CS: GO team from Malaysia in the previous round, namely JYP.
Apart from 7642, there are also signatures from Thailand who represent SEA and India in the PGL Asia Minor Championship. Previously there were Mongolz and Spotnet who made sure to qualify for this event. There are still qualification slots from China, Oceania, and 2 direct invites remaining.
This event was held on June 1-4 2017 in China with a total prize pool of $ 50,000 (around Rp. 650 million) and also the 2 teams that passed will continue to the PGL Krakow Major which was held in Krakow, Poland.
Stay enthusiastic for Recca Esports and make this event a lesson for future events. Keep support Indonesia eSport!!!
