Championship Gaming Series franchise team Singapore Sword will most likely be holding their selections this Saturday and Sunday, with a new General Manager at their helm.
According to an inside source GameSync spoke with, the selection process will be similar in nature to the draft process for CGS’ Region 1 (North America) teams. Instead of an actual tournament, the GM will be on hand to observe random matchups between players, as well as conduct interviews.
The venue has not been confirmed yet, but the selections will be going ahead on 29 and 30 March, "barring any unforeseen circumstances".
While most players will have to wait until this Saturday to show off their skills and personality, Counter-Strike: Source teams will have a headstart. By joining the Singapore Sword draft Steam Community group, CSS teams will be able to post scrims in the group. If the GM is available, he will join the game to observe the match.
Although our source was able to confirm that a new GM had been picked for Singapore Sword, he was unable to confirm or deny the identify of the new GM was. Our source however mentioned that an announcement will be made by the CGS soon.
Correction: We previously reported that the selection will be on Friday and Saturday. However, the actual days are Saturday and Sunday.
