ESEA Finals with just six teams
ESEA has announced that the upcoming continental finals will feature just six teams.
In the last few days, ESEA has been making arrangements to bring as many as four European teams to the season finals, which will take place in Dallas from January 17th to 19th.
However, teams from the old continent kept pulling out of the tournament, either because they could not get visa permit to enter the United States or because they lacked the funds to make the trip across the Atlantic Ocean.
ESEA has now confirmed that neither AGAiN nor n!faculty will be able to attend the event, which leaves VeryGames as the only European side who will be in Dallas for the tournament.
VeryGames and compLexity, the top seeded continental teams, will get direct entry into the Upper Bracket semi-finals, but it is still unclear how the tiebreaker between these two sides, to determine which of them gets the overall top seed, will be decided.
The participants' list and the continental seeds look as follows:
|1. VeryGames||1. compLexity|
|5. United 5|
