paiN Gaming and Test123 are headed to The Chongqing Major
The teams for The Chongqing Major is shaping up quickly as paiN Gaming and Test123 join the ranks.
It hasn't been much of a surprise of tough competition for paiN Gaming and Test123 (formerly paiN X). The two teams were also the region's two representatives for The Kuala Lumpur Major. paiN Gaming took a disappointing 13-16th place finish at the main event while Test123 (then paiN X) got slightly better results with a 9-12th place finish.
The two teams topped their respective groups, both with undefeated records and then went on the same through the playoffs until they met face to face. There, it was once again Test123 that came out slightly ahead with the 2:1 victory over paiN Gaming for the first slot.
paiN were then dropped to the lower brackets where they once again dominated their opponents with a 2:0 sweep and took the second spot for the big event.
China, Europe, and NA Chongqing Major closed qualifiers are only gearing up to start today, November 28th through the 30th. Three representatives from all three of the remaining regions will head to The Chongqing Major.
