The 2019 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Asia Championships are right around the corner. Kicking off November 20 and concluding on the 24, four unforgettable days cover this S-tier CS:GO event.
A Perfect World organized tournament is one of many; however, this particular event marks the second of its kind. Compared to last year’s Asia Championships, this event tops its previous prize pool of $300 thousand to $500 thousand. The CAC won’t leave its birthplace either. Like last year, the event is held at Jing’an Sports Center, in Shanghai, China.

Those teams will participate in the group stage with two double-elimination groups (GSL). Both groups hold four teams and all matches will be best of three’s. The top two teams from each group advance directly to the semi-finals. Second and third-place teams will play against each other in the quarterfinals.
However, the playoffs are a bit more straightforward. The stage will implement a single-elimination bracket, where teams will play best of three matches to secure a spot in the grand finals.
