Singapore-based teams VCO and H2H, the champion and second runner-up of this year’s World Cyber Games Singapore National Finals respectively, are conspicuously absent from the tournament.VCO‘s Sedated, however, has joined 96# for Asiafortress Open.
It looks like an exciting playing field. Mkz look like the favourites to win, but some of the other teams have a good collection of talent as well — pAe. has been said to have improved their game recently, while 96# has a good mix of talent from all over, just to raise a few examples.

So who do you think will win?
