The first match is a confrontation between two Vietnamese players, however, while XERE takes on the heavy responsibility to bring glory to his homeland, DOLPHINBUFF will be representing Australia, the country in which he is residing. Meanwhile, the second pair is an internal battle between two players from Thailand, HONGKFC and O2LOVEO. The remaining two pairs are KROMZ (Thailand) vs FENRIR (Singapore), and JINYAO (Malaysia) vs DILIGENT (Australia).
