We’re approaching the start of Day 6 of the VCT Master’s Reyjkavik, and it’s been nothing short of incredible. We have witnessed the greatest upset of teams like Fnatic and KRU Esports, those were phenomenal in the previous season. Teams with no prior recognition have appeared on the largest stage. As well, teams with extensive expertise have prevailed. Today, two Asian titans will square off in an attempt to restore Asia’s pride. Asian fans’ hearts were broken by the abrupt departure of XERXIA Esports, but they are already actively looking for alternative Asian representatives like ZETA, Paper rex and DRX.
