The first ever Arena of Valor World Cup (AWC) kicked off 18 July in Los Angeles, USA and the Top 8 teams that emerged were: Thailand, N. America, Chinese Taipei, Vietnam, Korea, China, and two WC teams from Chinese Taipei and Thailand.
AWC’s semifinal and final matches will be held this weekend, July 28-29 2018, at the famous TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood, California.
Here’s a quick recap of what happened during the group stage and the quarter finals:
Kicking off the semifinals on 28 July is South Korea vs Chinese Taipei, then Thailand vs China in a best-of-five series. The losers from those two matches will head to a “losers bracket” where they will still have the chance to get themselves into the AWC finals and the two teams will play a best-of-seven series. This competition holds the biggest prize pool ever in mobile eSports at USD 550,000!
