The eCurve shopping mall, located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, hosted the Asian qualifier for ESL One Cologne, featuring six teams from across the continent plus Oceanic duo Immunity and Renegades.
The GSL group stage went according to script as neither Australian team had to break a sweat to finish at the top of their group. A surprising result did come in the Lower Bracket of Group B, however, as Chinese side QeeYou were thumped by MVP.Karnal 5-16 on de_overpass.

Renegades were the first team to secure a spot at the major as they moved past myRevenge by a 2-0 scoreline, with the Korean side giving a good account of themselves on de_cache, where they took a 10-5 halftime lead before falling short in overtime.

Despite having the support of the home crowd, the Malaysian team were unable to prevent Iain "SnypeR" Turner's men from running out 2-0 victors following 16-13 and 16-7 wins on de_mirage and de_cobblestone, respectively.
The list of participants for ESL One Cologne currently looks as follows:
