ESEA finals team list completed

ESEA has announced more details about the upcoming global finals, including the complete participants' list.

The tournament will take place in Dallas from January 17th to 21st, with eight teams in contention for the top prize of $20,000, four from Europe and four from North America.

After the European league came to an end on Sunday, the North American division has now been played out, with a lot of confusion as to which team had finished fourth in the table following a three-way tie between Homeless, United5 and RELiABLE GAMiNG.

Qualification came down to head-to-head, with Homeless going through as they boasted a 3-1 record against the other two sides.

The complete participants' list and the continental seeds look as follows:

1. France VeryGames 1. United States compLexity
2. Denmark uber G33KZ 2. United States iBUYPOWER
3. Poland UniversalSoldiers 3. United States MouseSpaz
4. Sweden LGB eSports 4. United States Homeless

The final seeds will be determined by the All-Star Game that will be played on Friday night between players from both regions. The community will have the chance to vote for the players who will make up both teams.

Not sure what the lineup for Homeless will be. frozt, monte will attend for sure, probably steel as well, then it comes down to mosbeck, ezpk and freakazoid - one of them can't go.

It's kind of a running joke in invite that certain teams pick up "onliners" (not implying cheaters) to make it to the playoffs. Then they either cut that player or decide not to go with them.
2013-12-17 20:37
m0E was in that team wasn't he? It was consisting of the same players who played CSS together if I'm not mistaken?

Moe got absolutely blasted when he asked for $ to go to ESWC with them (then named Frost Gaming). play.esea.net/index.php?s=forums&d=topic..
2013-12-17 20:11
moe is on Reliable gaming who ended the season pretty well with more rounds than homeless and United 5. He thought he was going to LAN until this news was released as they used head to head to head rules for the 3 way tie in which homeless won. He's a bit upset as you could imagine.

Thank you GoodRiot for your answer. I think m0E is prolly more than "a bit" upset considering his reactions on stream lol

I have this issue where when I first start my CS:GO I play with around 100-120 FPS but then after about 15 minutes my FPS is down on 40-60.. does anyone know what is wrong and how to fix it?

Probably heat-related problems. Download SpeedFan and check your temperatures, check if theres a difference between when you start the game and when youve played 15 min.

wtf, i thought reliable came 4th and homeless got 5th? Thats what moe and frost talked about..
2013-12-17 20:20
1 reply
So although reliable finished 4th with the highest rounds for here: play.esea.net/index.php?s=league&d=stand.. ESEA decided to pick the 4th spot first by looking at the teams record. It comes out to this: reliable vs u5 0-2 reliable vs homeless 1-1 -------------------------------- homeless vs u5 2-0 homeless vs reliable 1-1 -------------------------------- u5 vs reliable 2-0 u5 vs homeless 1-1 And from there I assume it was then decided on Rounds For between Homeless and u5, giving Homeless the slightest of advantages to go to ESEA lan.

0 American teams in second round lel
2013-12-17 20:38
The thing I'm most excited for is the "home crowd" factor for coL. Not taking a single thing away from fnatic at DHW, they played their asses off. But if you were watching their match vs coL, fnatic had a pretty big crowd behind them motivating them every time they won a round. coL only had a few. I would really like to see the crowd get on coL's side for the big matches :]

Same but ESEA LAN also looks like a basement tourny in comparison to Dreamhack, way more people at that event.

Do you even can attend this event in person? It's hosted in some hotel in DFW area.

You can attend. Quite a few NA streamers and fans show up. Goodriot is right though. ESEA lan is pretty bare bones. It cost a lot to rent out fancy venue. Maybe if they introduced a pay and BYOC area, they could afford a better event. Its Torbulls show though, if barebones is how he wants it than thats the way it is.

I don't care that it's barebone. I might be on business trip in DFW during this time period. If this happens, I'm so gonna attend this event :)

A win here for NA would be HUGE. I hate talking about things that haven't happened yet, but if NA can secure this victory, it will give us a great deal of confidence to take back across the pond :]

I'd hope VG's new orgs first order of business would be sending them to ESEA finals lan. With a 1st place prize of $20,000 and CS GO's newly increased viewership, you'd figure it would be great press.
2013-12-17 21:01
All this American hate. LGB and US over coL? Really? Finals will be coL and VG.

I suck compared to them <3 I don't mind, it's just a game for me. But they suck compared to the teams they are facing in the LAN. That is a fact, they have not proven shit since they have formed and continuously show they have no real strategy to their team. When facing Elimination in a tournament, the final 3 rounds they just decided to bum rush B on Dust 2. When facing ELIMINATION, they said fuck everything and just went from spawn directly into B 3 TIMES IN A ROW. They rely on aim way too much and when things go wrong they start doing stupid shit because they don't seem to have any real plans. They aren't finishing top 4, no way in hell.

So they're not horrible then? :) But yes, there are many teams better than them and they seem to quite inconsistent and definitely need to step up their game.

Homeless to crash; mSpaz to possibly surprise. I guess if VG find a sponsor between the end of the year and this event, it'll be their first event playing under said sponsor.
