It was a deceptively peaceful weekend as we played out the bulk of Globe Conqueror Manila (GCM) Singapore National Qualifiers with the Top 6 teams who advanced from the Globe Conqueror Manila Singapore Open Qualifiers along with Sovereign and Resurgence, the two seeds from the previous edition of Singapore Legends Series.

Condensing the number of matches for the qualifiers just meant that each game had that much more at stake and that was apparent in the flurry of action between the various teams. Unfortunately, Ethereal was disqualified from the National Qualifiers due to their roster being underaged. Based on the SEA Tour rule set, players must be at least 17 years of age to participate in Globe Conquerors Manila.
Amidst all the action, we finally have our Top 3 teams for the GCM Singapore National Qualifiers. Sovereign advances directly to the National Qualifier Finals on 22nd July as the winner of the Winner Bracket while Resurgence faces off against Impunity in the Loser Bracket Finals, happening on 21st July.
As mentioned, the winner of the Best-of-3 series will meet Sovereign the very next day (22nd July) for a potentially epic Best-of-5 series to determine who will be Singapore’s representative in the main GCM event happening in Manila from 13-19 August.
