Team Immunity will represent Australia as one of 18 teams in the World Electronic Sports Games (WESG) Asia Pacific CS:GO Finals next month, after an outstanding performance in the qualification stages took them to victory.
With wins of 16-1 and 16-11 over rival Australian team Legacy eSports, Immunity were able to cruise to victory and book their ticket to the WESG APAC Finals in Goyang, South Korea.
Due to regulations and nationality restrictions regarding the event, players ‘Gratisfaction’ and ‘gazR’ were stood in by Parallax players ‘Hatz’ and ‘yellow’. ‘MoeycQ’ also took part in the qualification process, in the place of ‘deStiny’, who could not be present for the qualifier.
The event will be held between November 11 and November 13, just a week after the ESL AU & NZ finals at PAX Australia.
Immunity will be joined in Korea by Australian team Athletico, and New Zealand team Parallax, after they also won their respective qualification games.
With a prize pool of almost $10,000 AUD up for grabs, Team Immunity will be striving to perform at their best, in order to take home the lion’s share of the prize pool, and obtain qualification to the grand final.
The top six teams from the Asia Pacific finals will then qualify for entry into the main event in Shanghai, China, which consists of 24 teams from around the world, including the likes of European powerhouse teams GODSENT, Virtus.Pro and Team EnVyUs.
