The tournament runs from December 13-15, in Abu Dhabi, featuring 16 teams that will battle it out for their share of the $100,000 prize pool.
Jordanian side Chosen5 are the last team to be invited, thus completing the final 16, which contains a mix of top international teams and lower ranked teams from within the region. Chosen5 are most known for producing hellraisers ace Issa “issa” Murad, and fell just short of winning the WESG 2018 Africa Grand Finals.
