ViCi Gaming – the first team to grab a spot in the Manila Major China Regional Qualifiers – swept through FTD-Club C, 2:0. The famed Chinese team had also swept through Newbee.Young, 2:0, prior to that, crushing all of their opponents in the last two days.
ViCi Gaming looked to Fan “rOtk” Bai and Chen “Cty” Tianyu to revitalize their squad, adding the two star players to the lineup when Daryl “iceiceice” Koh Pei Xiang and Lu “Fenrir” Chao both parted ways with the organization to join EHOME, and Xie “Super” Junhao went to CDEC. Xu “Hym” Zhi and Jiang “jdh” Donghao are the fresh blood who joined the team.
ViCi Gaming will go up against EHOME, Newbee, CDEC.Y, CDEC, Invictus Gaming, TongFu, IG.Vitality, FTD Club.B and one other team still to be determined, in the Manila Major China Regional Qualifiers, scheduled to take place between May 3rd-6th.
