"Last year, we were able to take a game away from the eventual world champions, Luminosity Gaming, but we failed to secure the series. We hope they qualify so we can get our revenge this time," said S8ULAllmight in his statement. The qualifier in India was conducted by Skyesports. The roster has a good set of players and there is an improvement in the competition.
