The Mongolian roster of TheMongolz entered and won the IEM Oakland South-East Asia Qualifier using IEM’s new rules that allowed them to compete outside of their local region.

IEM is a series of international esports tournaments held around the world, and is hosted by ESL. The next tournament in the series will be the $300, 000 IEM Oakland 2017 that will begin on the 16th of November.

A new rule change by the organizer allows teams to apply to participate in a qualifier held outside of their home region when they match certain criteria, such as there being no local qualifiers,CSGO AWP Skins, or the team is staying and competing in another region and is unable to make it to their home qualifier.

TheMongolz are, at the time of writing, ranked 128th in the world, and their victory in the qualifiers has come as a surprise to many. They, alongside other Mongolian groups, had no opportunity to qualify for IEM Oakland until this rule change allowed them to travel to compete.

They entered the South-East Asia Qualifier against teams such as Chiefs, ranked 45th, from Australia and MVP PK, ranked 90th, from South Korea.

The roster outperformed all the teams they fought and claimed victory over both Chiefs and MVP PK, securing themselves a spot in the competition in California, where they will join the impressive line up attending the event.

The clubs confirmed to be going to IEM Oakland 2017 are now Astralis, Cloud9, FaZe Clan, G2 Esports, Gambit,CSGO M4A4 Skins, Immortals, Liquid, Ninjas in Pyjamas, SK Gaming, and TheMongolz.

The same rule change which allowed the Mongolian teams to travel to South-East Asia will also allow OpTic Gaming’s European roster to contend in NA and the Chinese team Tyloo to compete in the EU.

The Western and North American closed qualifiers will begin on the 2nd of October and will decide which squads will be take the final two spots in the main tournament.
