The Asia-Pacific regional competition of the cyber sport “Intel Extreme Masters” ended yesterday in Taipei. The Mongoliam Team “Mongolz.CS” defeated the Australian “Renegades” by points 2:0 (16:9, 16:2) in the of Counter-Strike category (using Cobblestone and Inferno).
Previously it had been impossible for Mongolian teams to achieve this level of success in international cyber sports competitions because of slow internet connectivity – on average it takes 0.4 more seconds to be connected with South East Asian servers from Mongolia. In order to solve this, the “Mongolz.Cs” team traveled to Hanoi in Vietnam, from where they battled in the “Intel Extreme Masters”.
Now the “Mongolz.CS” team is ranked in 6th place in Asia and 22nd worldwide. The winner of the “Intel Extreme Masters” receives the right to participate two more competitions; namely “IEM Katowice” for USD 100,000 to be held in Katowice, Poland on 4th March and “MLG Columbus”, also for USD 100,000 which will take place in Columbus USA on 29th March.
