European Eight qualify for TWC 2015

The European qualifiers have finished for E-frag.net's World Championships 2015 event, introducing the final eight teams to travel to the $100,000 national team CS:GO event.

The qualification process for The World Championships 2015 has been what may be politely called hectic, with drama beginning early on in the preliminary stages over certain national lineups and continuing through the fiascos that included Australia and Brazil being unable to field a lineup.

Even the European powerhouse that is Denmark ran into lineup fielding issues recently, and thus dropped out, a move which automatically gave Chris "⁠chrisJ⁠" de Jong's Netherlands a qualification for the $100,000 finals in Belgrade, Serbia.


ScreaM's game for Belgium against Finland went the full mile

However, all involved can breathe a collective sigh of relief as, after three qualification rounds and then a single elimination, best-of-three single death playoffs, the eight final European teams have moved through to the offline event.

The eight teams to advance are: Netherlands (automatically advanced), Germany (defeated Spain 2-1), Norway (defeated Portugal 2-1), Sweden (defeated Kazakhstan 2-0), France (defeated Iceland 2-0), Poland (defeated Slovakia 2-1), Russia (defeated Hungary 2-0), and Belgium (defeated Finland 2-1).

The full team list for The World Championships 2015 is therefore:

United States USA Canada Canada  Tunisia Tunisia Indonesia Indonesia
Kyrgyzstan Kyrgyzstan  China China Singapore Singapore  Serbia Serbia
Sweden Sweden France France Germany Germany Poland Poland
Norway Norway Russia Russia Belgium Belgium Netherlands Netherlands

We will continue releasing news articles as the official lineups are presented for each of the 16 teams; there are five more presentations to go which E-frag.net is set to release.

Its WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP not only eu, eu have qualy but ukraine lose all games, and i think that they throw all of their games and earn a lot more, but in any case they lose and was at bottom of groups :/ they easy can get top but i think that they just throw and earn in skins a lot more...
2015-10-02 15:08
Were you dropped on your head as a kid? Do you know how the format of world championships work? Don't you think there are better european teams in football than New Zealand for example? Teams qualify in their respective regions.

I know. I don't like the WC format in any single sports format really :D But ofc the best teams are in anyway, some top 10 teams aren't for sure but the very best ones still are in.

But at least Netherlands got the top4 placement in the groups. Serbia ended up with 4 points (-18 rounds) while Turkey got 6 (-13 rounds). It's kinda unfair imo.
