The CSGO2ASIA League (CAL) follows the popular FPL circuit format for CS:GO. Like the league in NA and EU, the CAL is a ‘soloQ’ only player league – not a team league. We were the first verified hub in Asia on one of the world’s leading CS:GO platforms – FACEIT.
The matchmaking (MM) system is broken. Whether you play regular MM or on any third-party CS:GO platforms, the toughest thing is finding like-minded people who simply want to have a great playing experience. All of our CAL hubs offer mandatory anti-cheat, direct admin support, a non-toxic environment, a friendly community and automated voice communication servers by Discord. We believe this is the best way to experience CS:GO and for Asian players to practice, improve and compete!
The CAL utilizes the FACEIT hub system, a feature open to all users of FACEIT. To join, you first need to register on www.faceit.com. All hubs are open to join for those with the correct FACEIT levels, and all hubs are free to play in! But to win prizes in the CAL you are required to be a subscriber (you don’t need to be a FACEIT premium subscriber).
Begin your path in the CAL by joining one of our five Divisions. Join the Division that best fits your FACEIT skill level and the location you are playing from:
We offer Southeast Asian Divisions with server locations in Singapore for our Southeast Asian players, and Indian Divisions with server locations in Mumbai for our South Asian players. If you are a new user to FACEIT, you will have to play a few placement games first in order to determine your level. After receiving your appropriate level, you can join the Division that matches your level and the location that you are playing from!
For Season 11 (Aug 2019), our Pro Division was removed. 'Masters' replaced 'Pro' Division and was re-launched on October 1st, 2019 and subsequently in October 2020. Since March 2021, Masters Division has been permanently closed. Read our news updates to learn more.
No. A FACEIT subscription is different from a subscription to the CAL. If you would like to play in CAL and not pay for another subscription, we suggest canceling your FACEIT ‘Premium’ or ‘CS:GO’ subscription and subscribing to the CAL instead.
The standard subscription starts at $1.99 USD/month. Please check for discount offers that we will periodically release through our social media.
Please go to your account settings and check under ‘Subscriptions’.
Select 'Manage Subscriptions' and choose 'End membership and benefits.'
As of now, FACEIT does not support these payment methods. However, we are working hard together with FACEIT to make these available as soon as possible.
As of now, we do not support these payment methods. However, we are working hard together with FACEIT to alternative methods of payment available as soon as possible.
Please note: The CAL team and admins do not handle after-sales payment issues, this is handled by FACEIT only.
FACEIT utilizes Xsolla as a payment manager for various payment gateways. Some payment methods take time to go through the payment networks. If you are using country-specific methods or Skrill, we have reports of delays up to 6 hours. Please be patient. If you make multiple payments when you already have made one then Xsolla will freeze the account to prevent fraud.
All you need to do is to pay once and wait for it to activate. It’s not instant. Depending on the payment method it can take up to six hours. Please be patient and don’t try to pay again! If you still have problems the fastest way is to go through the official Xsolla help channels.
First, try to restart your FACEIT client or refresh your page in the browser. If that does not work, please log out and log back in. If you still cannot queue, please see below. If you still experience a non-payment going through despite receiving confirmation, please submit a FACEIT support ticket and let one of our admins know the ticket number to help expedite your process.
We are sorry you feel this way. Please submit a FACEIT support ticket and let one of our admins know the ticket number to help expedite your process.

All prizes will be paid out between 30-60 days of completion of each season. (i.e. season ends August 31st, 2021, the prize money will be paid ON or BEFORE October 31st, 2021.)
Please note: We distribute cash prizes via PayPal. If you do not have a PayPal account, we cannot support your prize payout.
If there is absolutely no way for you to create a PayPal account (country restrictions etc), we will do bank transfers on a case-by-case basis. We can only support bank transfers for amounts more than US$100. Please find us in Discord so we can assist you.
As long as you meet the level requirements to join and queue in the hub, you may join both. However, only those of the correct level may queue, so you can only play in one hub at a time.
While we allow you to take part in any Division (provided you meet the requirements), you may only claim a prize from one Division. This also holds true if you win a prize in one of our SEA Divisions while also winning a prize in one of our Indian Divisions. Only the highest value prize, or the prize of your choice, will be claimable.
You may submit a report via our report form over here. Please note, reports without evidence will not result in action. If you wish to report someone but cannot provide evidence, please understand that we cannot process the report. We receive a lot of reports daily, and in order to remain fair and just in our decision making, we simply cannot handle requests without sufficient evidence to support the claim.
Yes, it is mandatory to use voice communication in all CAL games. Please join our Discord server. Refer to our rules to learn more about our communication policy.
All players are required to communicate in English. This includes all areas of the CAL including but not limited to: hub chat, Discord support, and in-game chat.
Yes, you are allowed to do so if ALL five players can agree.
However, if even ONE player cannot speak your language, but the other four can, you must speak English or another common language that all five players can understand.
The CAL queue mode is soloQ only, with the exception of Division 3, which allows duo-queue. You may, however, decide to jump in the queue at the same time as your friends, this is allowed. Rosters are chosen by selected captains. Best of luck!
We take Admin abuse extremely seriously, both from Admins and towards Admins. Please submit a report immediately using the report form. Do note, report submissions without evidence will not be considered.
The leaderboard focuses on your win/loss ratio. One win = +14 points, One loss = -9 points. A winning streak of 5 games grants a one-time bonus of +20 points. Recurring win-streaks will grant the bonus points on top of the win points for a total of 34 points per win.
Yes, it does.
The ELO gods do not speak.
We strongly advise all players to fix their issues individually before queueing. The best way to deal with lag issues is to go through the steps listed at Hiperz. One of the FACEIT admins will receive a ticket you submit and look at your problem specifically.
Asia is a vast continent with many ISPs and countless problems that are out of our control. Sometimes, these are even beyond FACEIT’s domain. Please be patient as we try to solve any and all network problems to the best of our ability.
Starting 22 October 2021, CAL and FACEIT support the South Asian community through two Indian Divisions with server locations in Mumbai.
FACEIT currently does not support China servers.
Asia is a very large continent. We put our trust in FACEIT engineers and operations teams to provide the best servers for our region. As they conduct their internal research and analysis and make these options available to us, we will definitely consider it.
Our Hub limits entries not only on profile flag but on geolocation as well. You must be residing in one of the countries listed in order to play.
To fix this:
If this still does not work, please approach an admin for an invite link to the Hub you desire to join. Please send us your FACEIT profile link so we can verify that you meet the correct joining criteria.
In the FACEIT desktop client, next to "Overview" you will find a Hub Icon. Click the arrow below and select "Mute notifications".
The reporting system has been set up to allow players to submit a report for indecent behavior. All reports are reviewed and handled by our admins. Please do not spam us in the hub chat.
The abuse of reports is strictly prohibited. If any offense is repeated the offender may be kicked or banned from CAL at the CAL staff discretion.
