After deep runs at the 2019 OMEN Challenger Series, EXTREMESLAND Asia Finals 2019, Taiwan Excellence Gaming Cup 2019 and IEM Katowice Closed Qualifier 2020, Bren Esports continues their hot streak as they take first place in the group stages of the Geforce Pacific Cup 2019 held at the Esports Arena in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia.
Getting a 4-0 at the end of the group stage, they won 19-17 against Singapore’s GMCC on Nuke, followed by a 16-11 victory against Myanmar’s Impunity on Dust 2, a 16-6 rout of Cambodia’s A Point on Inferno and a stunning 16-5 match against Vietnam’s Revolution on the same map to give them their ticket to the playoffs.
The tournament has a single round-robin format, with the top two teams from each group going to the playoffs. Thailand’s Maple and Indonesia’s BOOM were at the top of Group A, while Bren and Revolution dominated Group B.
Bren Esports will face Indonesia’s BOOM in the semifinals tomorrow at 10:00 a.m., Philippine Standard Time (UTC+8). Streams will be live at the time of the match.
If Bren goes to the Grand Finals, they will face the winner of Thailand and Vietnam. A victory there would mean that they will win their first-ever Asian CS:GO trophy and cement their name in the Asian scene. After all, they have just reached their initial goal of becoming one of Asia’s top teams!
