Starladder I league has already seen two top five teams finish in the 13th – 16th place. NaVi and VP both are out of the tournament after their surprise losses to Tyloo and VG.Cyberzen.
This tournament, however is one of the last tournaments that have already been announced where the Chinese teams even stand a chance to make it towards the finals. Many of the upcoming tournaments do not have chinese teams invited / qualified.
And we can't expect it to get any better with the big orgs teaming up into their own circles (WESA, PEA..)
