WTL organizer SCboy just announced an event called the “Cao Shuai Cup” on tomorrow, the evening of October 5th in Beijing time.
The event got its name because it was hastily decided yesterday(which is also the meaning of “Cao Shuai” in Chinese).
The Cao Shuai Cup is a 5v5 team competition, and the organizers hastily selected 5 top players from Korean and 5 from the global region.
These two teams will compete for a $10,000 prize, and the winner takes it all!!!

[Format]
The tournament follows a best-of-4 KOF format, where two teams take turns selecting players to compete. Each round consists of four matches, and a player is eliminated from the competition if he lose 3 matches. In the event of a 2-2 tie, both players are eliminated.

[Player List]
Korea: Maru Dark herO Cure Solar
World: Oliveira Serral Reynor Clem Maxpax

[Date]
20:00 5th Oct. Beijing Time(UTC/GMT +8 )

Yep, the improvised idea came out from the owner of DKZgaming as well as the sponsor of this tourney just 2 days ago(on this Chinese national holiday).

Sounds super cool, but given how short notice it is, have the players confirmed their participation?

Nice to have a surprise event!

Is the overall format bo7, and individual matches are bo4?

Wow, such an intriguing match! I wonder if there will be the ability to resurrect a player. And what happens if it’s 2-2 in the final match? Ace match? So, a similar format to WTL except that the matches are bo4 rather than bo2?

(By the way, Reynor withdrew from the event due to personal reasons, been replaced by Astrea)
