ESEA All-Star vote: Europe

The final round of voting for the ESEA All-Star game has now started, as the community can now vote for the fifth European player.

Each of the four European teams who will be in action at the ESEA Invite finals later this month in Dallas already has one representative in the All-Star team, and it is now time to pick the final member out of those who previously lost the vote.

In the last North American round of voting, Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham of Curse defeated opposition from Spencer "hiko" Martin, Keven "AZK" Lariviere, Kyle "flowsicK" Mendez to get the honour of representing his region in the match.

Will f0rest join GeT_RiGhT in the European team?

Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg is widely tipped to get the final spot in the European team, but the Ninjas in Pyjamas ace will face strong opposition from Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas, Nathan "NBK" Schmitt and Benjamin "qk-Mantis" Oberlein for the honour.

Season stats:

Player Kills Deaths Assists
Sweden Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg 289 192 35
Poland Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas 307 272 49
Germany Benjamin "qk-Mantis" Oberlein 309 303 66
France Nathan "NBK" Schmitt 271 180 45

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.

Below you can find how both All-Star teams are shaping up:

Europe North America
Germany Azmican "asmo" Bergeroglu United States Todd "anger" Williams
Sweden Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund United States Francis "kiko" Lao
Poland Filip "Neo" Kubski United States Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert
Belgium Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom United States Sam "DaZeD" Marine
Europe TBD United States Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham

Why? It's not ESEA's decision. It's the guys that are voting that decides who will be picked for the last spot ;)

Yeah 4sure but notice that they've never put 2 playerz from the same country unless they are from the same team (case : ScreaM and NBK) and maybe i'm mistaken ! :D

actually it is in quite bad shape , it was already like this , the old teams dissaperead and all switched to source or quit , with only a few of the old players(cca. 10) remaining and trying to do something(going events etc in the last years). apart from the people i mentioned above , in the last 5y the 1.6 italians community transformed in romanians and 95% of them still play 1.6 at a low level mixes 24/7 and pubs , nearly none of them actually progressing from those primitive origins(brainwise) and not switching to csgo either , and the few who did are few italians(old ones) and some of us(romanians) which the amount can be counted on fingers in total. it is sad , but ye , this is italy CS community :(

well to be honest TaZ should already be on the team instead of Neo, but fanboys gonna fanboy.
2013-04-08 12:08
2013-04-08 02:44
I think the better choise for last poss is the f0rest. But it will be interesting to see these players together in a team, even for once time only. gl hf to all!
2013-04-08 02:45
I'm surprised NBK got a better ratio than f0rest (with about the same amount of kills). But f0rest is far more consistent so better be him for the EU team's sake.
2013-04-08 02:46

? NBK has a 1.14 ratio so far, f0rest has 1.38, what are you talking about? :o

2013-04-08 03:01
Taz deserves it, but so does f0rest. Asmo should be counting his lucky stars... would loved to have seen: f0rest, GTR, NEO, Taz, Scream. GL to asmo, hope he plays well and proves his worth.

probably just play in pairs. for example on inferno 2 polish go b site 2 swedish go a site scream plays apartments since they are on lan, you can kinda just look at the monitor or watch the deathnotice to figure out what's happening.

neo f0rest scream gtr doesnt look like an allstar team but wtv
2013-04-08 05:12
hopefully asmo can do it well at this match. The annoying part of that, is the fanboyism storm that would come after -_- ... OMG OMG asmo cfg ? asmo cfg ? D: so predictable...
2013-04-08 05:36
Do people not understand the rules lol? There is one player chosen from n!faculty, NiP, VG, ESC and then one more selected from any of those 4 teams to make up the 5th player. If you could just pick anybody NiP would be selected as the all star team. P.S. I know f0rest was likely to be voted in anyway, but isn't it a bit unfair to put his picture up with that caption considering half the people on this site can't make their own opinion?

LOL, all players are better than: Azmican "asmo" Bergeroglu Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund Filip "Neo" Kubski Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom what a joke that europe vs usa match from european side. if only two players can be from same team, european lineup should be: Dosia Fox ScreaM TaZ f0rest

GeT_RiGhT instead of Fox, no doubt really.

Yeah,you're totally right. All VP players are better than GTR,sure they are.Just watch global stats and tell me more...
2013-04-08 11:33
not only stats
2013-04-08 19:41
taz is a very strong and good player. In ESC only taz be in the same level what NIP,VErygames, but they can't carry ESC with pasha. Neo,maniek,and kuben need more more practice..

Well, all these names are quality. Both US and Europe have great players representing. But I think Europe have the best mix here and that they can function together. Maybe not, we'll see ;)

Yankees have an obvious advantage in communication.

I dont think english is an unknow language for any of them. They should be able to communicate good enough. US team have an advantage when it comes to the language of course, but i dont think it is an big enough advantage. I understand your opinions, but they are such professional players and smart players that they will be too strong. Again, only my opinion tho.
2013-04-08 12:44
its always the same with these all-stars teams, on paper europes looks alot stronger but in reality they end up as pretty close matches
2013-04-08 12:14
f0rest ofcourse. voted for him

2013-04-08 13:03
What people don't know about the NA scene, especially the invite players, is that they play a lot of 10 mans which only involve invite players. So they have played a lot together even though they aren't from the same team. Whilst I highly doubt more than 2 of those players on the Europe team have played together. But skill is of course way higher on the EU team. I think that if this was a game of great significance the NA would win because the communication from Europe won't be a 100%, but seeing this will be just mostly for fun the skill from each of the euro's will probably shine and they will win. But I could easily see the NA team do good in this kind of pug style play seeing like I said a lot of them have played together in this type of scenario.

the players from europe play alot 10-man too. Just for example in the streams. And they have to speak english there so in my opinion the comunication shouldnt be a problem
