ESEA All-Star nominees

ESEA has revealed the names of the players who have been nominated for the All-Star game between Europe and North America.

With the regular ESEA Invite season in both Europe and North America having come to an end, the top four teams from both regions are now looking forward to the global finals, which will take place from April 19th to 21st in Dallas.

Before the main tournament starts, however, there will be an All-Star game between the two regions, not only for bragging rights, but also for a better seeding in the team competition.

A panel of ESEA experts has convened to determine which two players from each of the attending teams are up for nomination in the All-Star game.

The community will now vote for one player from each team to defend their respective region. The losing players will then be placed in a separate poll, from which the fifth and sixth (backup) members will be picked.

Team Player One Player Two
Sweden Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg Sweden Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund
VeryGames France Nathan "NBK" Schmitt Belgium Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom Russia Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov Ukraine Kiril "ANGE1" Karasiow
n!faculty Germany Azmican "asmo" B. Germany Benjamin "qk-Mantis" Oberlein
United States Spencer "hiko" Martin United States Sam "DaZeD" Marine
Curse United States Todd "anger" Williams United States Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham
Dynamic United States Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert Canada Keven "AZK" Lariviere
Netcode Ill.
United States Francis "kiko" Lao United States Kyle "flowsicK" Mendez

The balloting period will be of just three days per team, with only one poll running at a time. You can now start voting for your North American All-Star team by choosing between the two Curse players who have been nominated: Todd "anger" Williams and Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham.

Curse finished in second place in the North American division, level on points with leaders Quantic Gaming but with the head-to-head disadvantage.

Season stats:

Player Kills Deaths Assists
United States Todd "anger" Williams 313 248 48
United States Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham 329 192 51

To cast your vote, head over to ESEA's website. Remember that you only have three days to choose and that you need a Premium account to vote.

easy peezy for europe

this will be more difficult for europe, knowing a good majority of the players speak english, it's not their first language, whereas the Americans will be speaking their first language

That's actually a really good point. Also, Europe has been handicapped by being forced to pick at least 1 player from each team.

2013-03-12 19:34
I don't think that's relevant, since many players from the Europe side are used to play on an international level. Also, they won't have the time to put up real strats anyway, so it's even less relevant.
2013-03-12 23:42
Haha dude, the russians probably don't know more than a few words. Swedes always got decent english skills and french people not always but quite often I'd say. Same like germans.

Yeah that's what I was thinking, it doesn't really make sense to make an all-star match between a country and a whole continent

Canada's not really included. There are a few Canadian players here and there but no Canadian team. VP have an Asian player, but you can't really say Asia is represented in this tournament

True, but i feel canada wasnt represented because the scène there is pretty much dead? At least i never read anything about ca teams since 1.6 ended Do you know of any good teams there active atm?

there are a few all canadian teams that will be playing in invite next season is my guess...althought i do not think they will be able to make the top 4 for esea lan finals...the rest of canada's players are all spread out with american teams or are part of lowier tier canadian teams.

2013-03-12 19:33
No you're right they're probably not on the same level, that's why making an all star with these regions isn't so interesting imo. But hey looking forward to a good show anyways

It doesn't say so in the rules. Besides, if that's how it worked, what's the point of having an official 6th anyways?
2013-03-13 07:56
You have 2 players from NiP and 2 players from VirtusPro and that just DOESEN'T work. Nothing to discuss here. And why should qk-mantis pull out? You're hilarious.
2013-03-12 14:20

he's saying mantis not making it, would allow '2' teams to have two players. His setup of the hypothetical situation is there to let his team 'work' by the rules. Though it would be unlikely that ESEA would not use the backup from the same team.

That beats the point of actually picking 6th player then, doesn't it?
2013-03-13 07:53
I'm not saying he'll pull out, i'm just saying that the lineup is not "impossible".

ScreaM is more attractive player to watch and that's what we need in an all-star match. We don't need perfect english skills etc. for such match. Ingame position calls will be enough, which ScreaM probably knows well like every other player. Match will be played for crowd I'm sure.

I still think NBK is more like a perfect player and he's so much more experienced than ScreaM's and saying that in case of aim skills, NBK has sick aim as well as ScreaM, no one is better or worse

We should do an English test in order to select players between dosia/ange1 and between asmo/mantis lol Some would argue that it's a mix team but in cs communication is a huge factor whether in a mix or in a team. Therefore the team would be gtr Forest Nbk Dosia/ange1 based on English mantis/asmo based on English level
