European WESG details announced

StarLadder opened registrations for the WESG European Regional Qualifiers and revealed details about the $75,000 Regional Finals that are going to be held in Kiev.

Following the end of the African and Middle Eastern qualification cycle, the European and CIS part of the WESG qualifiers is set to start in mid-September, kicking off with national and sub-regional online qualifiers.

The "Europe and CIS" region is split into 15 different qualifiers, with big CS countries such as Sweden, Germany, Poland and Russia getting their own qualifiers and smaller regions such as Benelux and Adriatica being grouped into sub-regional qualifiers.


Europe is split into 15 national and sub-regional qualifiers

There are 20 slots for the Regional LAN Finals and they are distributed in the following way:

Region Slots
The UK and Ireland & Iceland 1
Northern Europe & Post CIS 1
South-Eastern Europe 1
Benelux 1
Central Europe 1
Iberia 1
Adriatica 1
France and Monaco 2
Sweden 2
Germany 1
Poland 2
Russia 2
Ukraine 1
Denmark 2
Norway 1

It is important to note that even though some qualifiers are sub-regional, the competing teams must consist solely of players from a single country - a rule that will force multi-national teams to swap rosters or use stand-ins if they wish to compete in WESG.

The Regional LAN finals will be held in Kiev from the 6th to the 9th of October, with specifics about the format still unknown.

Registrations for the respective online qualifiers are available on the StarLadder WESG website.

Tugux has German citizenship so thats why he couldnt play with them in the qualifiers.

Hmmm, I knew he was German but as he was always displayed with the Turkish flag I thought he had the double nationality (+ he played for Turkey during TWC in 2015 iirc)
2016-08-19 19:23
Maj3r will go to LAN qualifiers.Tugux play as coach after now.

Yeah, I dont think it makes a diffrence if you have German or Turkish citizenship in TWC, you can play for whatever team you want i guess. But in WESG you need Turkish citizenship if you wanna play in a Turkish team. And MAJ3R also going to play with Space Soldiers in Dubai

Israel does play on European qualifier, Turkey doesnt 4Head. Btw it was better for Turkish teams to play on Africa & Middle East qualifiers. Its gonna be more easy for them to qualify for the main event

I think they already talked about that matter, it's because they were afraid that countries with Muslim majorities refused to play Israel and preferred not taking this risk.

If Arabs dont want to play with Israel teams they can just leave the tournament. I dont think organizers should change their rules just because of players.
2016-08-19 19:33
Organizers not changing this because of players. Political questions is still exists.
2016-08-19 19:34

I think more correctly would be 'Kyiv' instead of 'Kiev', cuz the city named for person 'Kyi'. 'Kiev' is a soviet/russian title. Anyway, good luck! :)
