**Updates have been made**

The Season 2 World Championship is right around the corner and Southeast Asia hasn't had it's say yet just yet! The final regional qualifier will be played out this weekend.
Are you ready to see your favorite Southeast Asian teams compete? I sure am! Read on to find all the information you need to be ready for the tournament this weekend.
The tournament is going to be held at Tien Son Sports Palace in Da Nang, Vietnam on September 9th/10th, sponsored by Garena. This is a double elimination tournament, and the seeding will be done by random draw on the 9th. This means I will not have the tournament bracket until then. The tournament is set to begin at 10:40pm EST and last until 7:05am EST. The five best Southeast Asian teams will be competing and come from all over, including Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines. They will be playing for a $9,000 prize pool split up between the places like so:
1st place - $5,000 & Qualification to the Season 2 world championships!
2nd place - $2,500
3rd place - $1,500
4th place - $1,000
Tien Son Sports Palace, and where the event will take place in Vietnam
Now, most of these Southeast Asian teams are relatively unknown unless you follow the eSports scene like it's going out of style. So I've made a small breakdown of each team, who their members are, and which position each of them play for your enjoyment and ease of information!
