ESWC 2014 viewer's guide

October 29th, 2014 23:58

With ESWC starting in less than ten hours, we bring you the event's viewer's guide so that you know when your favourite teams play.

With Titan winning ESWC France and thus getting the first seed, while LDLC got the second, we now know every match-up of the twenty-four-team group stage, which will be played in a best-of-one round robin.

Don't forget that there is also an eight-team female tournament running during ESWC with $10,000 on the line, played by the likes of Ubinited, ALTERNATE and Bad Monkey.

2014-10-30 00:19
Oh my god are you serious? Probably gonna end up like gfinity with missing a lot of awesome matches..
2014-10-30 00:28

2014-10-30 00:29

2014-10-30 00:35
I just want to know how long the games will be delayed, hopefully a few hours!
2014-10-30 00:44
Probably like one hour I'd imagine.
2014-10-30 00:59
Im quite sure that ESWC never has delays...
2014-10-30 03:42

2014-10-30 00:51
Something tells me NiP will be very dangerous this tournament
2014-10-30 00:45
Will there be stats for this tournament at any point on HLTV??
2014-10-30 00:52
Yes of course, LAN tournaments are a priority. Hence why some online matches in the past week or so have no stats, I've been on the road focusing on FACEIT + ESWC now.
2014-10-30 01:11
great! thanks for all the hard work :)
2014-10-30 01:20
will there a scorebot?
2014-10-30 04:48

2014-10-30 08:30
I have no problem with lacking of gotv, but honestly I hope you'll provide ip/info for independent casters regardless of languages they might speak. Not like yesterday problems about english stream on cs:go matches
2014-10-30 08:57
where is anders?:(
2014-10-30 09:29
No GOTV demos? :(
2014-10-30 09:41
$50,000 will be spread amongst the top four followingly: 1. $20,000 2. $15,000 3. $10,000 4. $5,000 That's sad for 2014 for such a large tournament :( At least there is Dreamhack but still. Just for kicks I found a database of the major Counter-strike 1.6 tournaments and even in 2001 CPL had 3x the price money.
2014-10-30 10:04
