SCOGA Gets To Pick Their Esports Players For The 18th Asian Games 2018; Hooray?

Remember Singapore’s Cybersports and Online Gaming Association, the folks who botched up the Lion City Cup tournament last year? After their super-long contributions to the Singapore esports scene for better or worse, they are now given the task of selecting “e-athletes” for the upcoming 18th Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games 2018.

To recap, the Asian Games will feature competitive gaming from 18th August to 1st September. The whole shebang is co-organized by the Olympic Council of Asia, Asian Electronic Sports Federation, and the Indonesian Asian Games Organizing Committee. The finalists for this event will come together for the games in Jakarta.

 

Here is how the selection process will be done. See if you can spot anything off from it.

Arena of Valor(Honor of Kings International) 1 team will be selected based on recommendation from game publisher Garena.
Clash Royale 32 players who sign up will compete in Qualifiers.
Hearthstone Top 4 HC points in Season 1 will be selected.
League of Legends 1 team will be selected based on recommendation from game publisher Garena.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 1 team will be selected based on recommendation from game developer Konami.
Starcraft II Players who sign up will compete in Qualifiers.

Yep, there’s no Street Fighter or Dota 2 anywhere, but that’s not the point. What’s odd is that the representative teams for Arena of Valor and League of Legends will be hand-picked based on the recommendation from publisher Garena. Ditto Konami for Pro Evolution Soccer 2018.

Basically, if you are a team who has won a lot but aren’t in good standings with Garena, SCOGA, and/or Konami, you’re pretty much SOL. At this point in time, we are asking if there will be fair play here.

Qualifiers for Clash Royale, Hearthstone, Pro Evolution Soccer 2018, and Starcraft II will be held at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, on 31st May 2018. Participants and schedules of the games will be announced shortly.
