WESG Finals dates announced

December 20th, 2016 02:01

The WESG Finals will be held from the 12-15th January at the Olympic Center in Changzhou, China. The prize pool consists of a whopping $1,500,000 with 24 teams participating.

The World Electronic Sports Games Finals will have teams from all regions in the world competing in a BO2 round robin format. The 24 teams will be split into four groups of six teams each and the first-placed team will proceed straight to the quarter-finals, while the second and third-placed teams will battle it out for the last four playoff spots.

This format is very similar to the one we saw used at EPICENTER: Moscow in terms of the group stage. The quarterfinals and onwards will be standard fare in the form of a BO3 single-elimination bracket.


Virtus.pro will be favorites to win in China

There will be familiar names among the players attending, but as the tournament organizer have an 'only same nationality' rule in place for the participating rosters, some of them will appear in some new constellations. Virtus.pro, EnVyUs, and GODSENT will be playing in full lineup among others though.

The full list of teams can be seen below:

Poland Virtus.pro France EnVyUs Denmark ex-dignitas Russia .Russia
Poland Kinguin Sweden GODSENT Ukraine Ukraine Finland iGame.com
China TyLoo China VG.CyberZen Kazakhstan K23 China FIVE
Malaysia JYP Thailand Signature Hong Kong ENZO United States Selfless
Canada subtLe Mexico QuetzaL Brazil TeamOne Chile Force of Nature
Colombia Colombia Turkey Space Soldiers South Africa Bravado Turkey DarkPassage

The prize pool distribution will be as follows:

1. - $800,000
2. - $400,000
3. - $200,000
4. - $60,000
5-8. $10,000

Cos EnvyUs is EnvyUs.. Dignitas will be using Aizy instead of Rubino. The only team i see suprising those three teams, is Godsent (they might also lose to any team :D).

why is dig playing with aizy?
2016-12-20 16:40
Wesg rules state 4 players of same nationalty needed. So rubino isnt allowed for dig
2016-12-20 22:41
aizy isnt playin according to msl bc he is practicing for major
2016-12-22 13:16

2016-12-20 02:02
With that prize distribution the no namers are most likely just competing for 40k, that is 5-8th place. Maybe some random team can break in to top 4 but I doubt it
2016-12-20 10:18
Blame the ones who didn't participate in the qualifiers or did not qualify for the qualifiers

2016-12-20 18:11
dayum that prize money, guaranteed 200k for VP is insane
2016-12-20 02:02
gl to all of the teams, this should be a interesting event.
2016-12-20 02:02
800k sounds like a good start into the year for a team.
2016-12-20 02:03
Horrible lineup due to the horrible rules. Blasphemy of a tournament, which is taking steps backwards in developing the scene.

eleague t4 tournament
2016-12-20 02:15
Yeah, everybody knows which team would win E-League season 1 HAHAHA But NA teams fucked up with everything.
2016-12-20 03:16
You mean the same team that failed to win 20 next tournaments choking against t3 teams in finals? nt favela but SK would lose e-league exactly like they lost everything after the Cologne major
2016-12-20 09:45
They still placed Top 4 consistently despite losing.
2016-12-20 13:46
Actually they got eliminated by NA orgs in E-League Season 1 then they won ESL Cologne Major HAHAHA Wtf are you saying, they were pratically unbeatable HAHA
2016-12-20 14:44
Yes that's why sk didn't win anything since the major
2016-12-20 10:22
That's why what? Everybody knows the true winner of E-League Season 1. They rekt everybody on group stage then they got eliminated by NA "cryers" orgs because they changed their org. But actually i'm not crying, it's just hilarious that E-League Season 1 is the single title that VP won this year HAHAHAHAHAHAHA And guess what? The didn't beat the best team in the tournament HAHAHA
2016-12-20 14:47
U mean Fnatic right?
2016-12-20 12:52
Yeah the best team in the world in that occasion was Fnatic, right? Haha don't make me laugh! Luminosity just got eliminated by NA orgs, they were the best team in the world in that moment and they would win so easily E-League Season 1 HAHAHA
2016-12-20 14:42
Yes that's why they can't win tier2 event .
2016-12-20 15:16

How else would the Chinese have a chance at winning?
2016-12-20 03:38
They didn't participate, union rules. It's the team's fault they didn't get to play. Wesa player union.
2016-12-20 05:21
EnVyUs? Virtus.Pro?
2016-12-20 07:39
Those are the rumours being spread. Why else would sk fnatic nip not participate? Same rumours about not allowing C9 to play with standins or mix teams. VP are not in the core of wesa, just a member, faze fnatic nip etc are core members of wesa Astralis lost to godsent in qualifying, they had karrigan. Any sensible team would have attended, considering that the qualifiers were on lan

2016-12-20 03:47
Nope. Aizy has more important things to do than helping dignitas. Like praccin to major WITH HIS team
2016-12-20 07:20
Except he has guaranteed minimum $40k for just attending those finals with dig and likely more so maybe he'll consider.
2016-12-20 08:26
Yeah.. no
2016-12-20 08:41

i believe rosters are locked in (?) so more than likely aizy will play with dig for WESG
2016-12-20 12:37
Yeah, because he'd rather practise for a more difficult tournament with a lesser prize pool than this tier 3, $1500,000 one, they are the second best team in the tournament the $400k is almost guaranteed
2016-12-22 13:11

They can't compete in WESG because they have international roster (US + Canada). WESG only accept national teams. That's why there is no NaVi but shitty "Ukraine" mix.

Ukraine xphenomen 
They didn't choose "to not participate". WESG only accept national rosters (100% of team from same country). That's why there is no Faze, Optic, C9, NaVi, G2, mouz etc
2016-12-20 06:05
If they really wanted to they could've made a plan
2016-12-20 09:14
they could have done like dignitas did, change a player for this tournament
2016-12-20 09:46
Mate sk immortals fnatic and nip are one nationality teams. Explain why they didn't participate? Astralis lost in qualifiers.
2016-12-20 11:11
SK and Immortals probably didnt want to go to Brazil for online qualifier. Nip at that time withdrawn from some events because of schedule, this cant be reason why they didnt want to play. Fnatic idk.
2016-12-20 12:20
Mate it was an offline event,with prize pool and there was free time. As i said, its their fault they did not play. The people here are saying "so much mone for T99 teams"

that Ukraine mix is just shame for country with so many good players.
2016-12-20 06:06
VP was at the last tournament and they said they were paid. I think they pay since it is a partnership between Chinese government + Alibaba. WCA doesn't pay but these guys do. The tournament is sponsored by the Chinese eSports ministry or some shit. It is all government subsidies and they make it "nationality only team" so a lot of teams are already eliminated and the Chinese have a better chance.

why isnt SK and Astralis on this championship?
2016-12-20 07:20
1. ask SK wiki.teamliquid.net/counterstrike/World_.. 2. because GODSENT beat them in the round of 12 wiki.teamliquid.net/counterstrike/World_..

2016-12-21 03:19
Why china lans always big prizepool but shitty teams and streams
2016-12-20 07:21
Because China second richest country?
2016-12-20 07:24
That is the reason why shittiest teams and streams?
2016-12-20 07:43
Shittiest teams because they make rules that help Chinese teams. Streams? I don't know. We'll see about this one. Do you watch Chinese or English stream? Maybe first one is better?
2016-12-20 08:29
In 2016 there is no much delays anymore in good t1 english stream lans but in china lans still huge delays and shitty streams.
2016-12-20 08:42
WESA forced nip fnatic sk to boycott, no reason as to why else they did not play. Astralis lost in the qualifiers There were lan qualifiers for this, with the qualifiers also have 75k prize pool

I was about to say that I would not have VP as favourites since they'll most likely focus on the major instead, and bomb out early like only VP can do when they don't care. But then I saw the pricepool lol. Imagine if they win both this and the major in just a few weeks

The prize pool is so crazy for tournament like this.. Easy money for the top teams.. VP/Dignitas/Envyus/Godsent/Kinguin/Russia/TyLoo/and one random lucky team to get the last spot in the top8. Easy money for Dignitas or VP..
2016-12-20 10:10
Sk, nip, fnatic did not participate even though they were free at the time, shot teams like selfless won the na slot. Astralis did not qualify It was open for all teams. Blame the wesa union

As a solid player back in 1.6, im considering to be professional in Cs:go at the age of 28. Amazing prize money indeed. I wish SS takes top3 place. At least 200k money would be good for their improvement and investments. It will also be a great succes for DP to take place in top8.
