WESG 2017 with $1.5 million prize pool

The World Electronic Sports Games has announced a $1.5 million prize pool for its next world championship along with details about the European and the American qualifiers.

The total purse has been kept the same from last year's event, with the winner still picking up $800,000, but some of the other top finishers will earn substantially less money as 16 teams, instead of just eight, will now walk away with cheques.

In addition to the male tournament, there will also be a female competition, a first in the history of WESG, with $170,000 on offer. As it happened last year, team rosters are limited to one country, effectively ruling international lineups out of the competition.

EnVyUs won the 2016 edition of WESG

WESG 2017 will take place at an as-yet undisclosed location in March 2018 and will feature 32 teams total - an increase from last year's 24. The national and regional qualifiers will run from August to January, with Starladder being in charge of the qualifying process in both Europe and America. The qualifiers in other regions will be announced soon.

Below you can find the prize distribution for the male CS:GO tournament:

1. $800,000
2. $300,000
3. $150,000
4. $70,000
5-8. $25,000
9-16. $10,000

The female competition's prize pool breakdown is as follows:

1. $100,000
2. $40,000
3. $20,000
4. $10,000

Details about the registration process for the European and the American qualifiers can be found on WESG's official website. Europe has been allocated 12 slots at the world finals, while America has been given seven places. The prize distribution for these regions' LAN events is the following:

Europe Finals (12 slots at WESG 2017) American Finals (7 slots at WESG 2017)
1. $40,000 1. $35,000
2. $20,000 2. $17,000
3. $10,000 3. $8,000
4. $6,500 4. $5,000
5-8. $4,000 5-8. $2,500

all they have to do is get rid of nationality rule and this would be a HUGE tournament but they ruin it with roster rules
2017-08-21 20:09
That's the whole fucking point of the tournament.
2017-08-21 21:17
You're wrong. Like Redeye said on twitter, it is still org based. If it was truly nationality based each country should only have been allowed to maintain one squad to represent their country, much like the world cup in soccer. Now it's as if Manchester United can go to the World Cup as long as all their players are British, which is stupid. This just messes up all the international line-ups who have to pick up stand-ins etc if they want to compete and places orgs whose roster is from one country at an unfair advantage. To WESG: >Nationality Based >Org based Pick one, ye idiots.
2017-08-21 21:56
I've discussed this with that 'cock in throat', no neck sounding dwarf. And his rationale for his argument was flawed.
2017-08-21 22:03
Lul. But the question is, do you not agree with it being unfair towards certain orgs? Especially when this tournament gives you the opportunity to win more money than you would winning a major. I personally think it would be much more entertaining to see A) Line-ups consisting of a country's best five or B) just having all the top teams attending. Although this does give a chance to the little guys to win a bit more earnings, I don't believe it's going to give us better (or more entertaining) CS to watch. Hell, what do I care. It's not like a dutch line-up would ever get far in a tournament like this.
2017-08-21 22:10
I queried whether his issue was that existing teams can enter and therefore give an unfair advantage over those that have to form just for the tournament. He said Nope. For me and you, we can see that this is a disadvantage for WESG only teams. I told him in that instance his argument of it being a world super cup, rather than a World Cup, was invalid as national teams will be competing. He got butthurt and blocked me.

2017-08-21 17:58
Last year was because it was too close to the major... plus only Faze is a tier1 team out of those three.

Why the fuck do women get so much money? They're literally at the level of ESEA-M players - aka, there's probably 1000 players better than them, or more, who aren't getting paid at all
2017-08-21 17:50
because of liberals and feminists
2017-08-21 18:31
if feminists got their own way, women would play in the male leagues and sit at tier5000 never winning anything or being important in any way. so really we kind of hope feminism wins on this one ha
2017-08-22 01:26
no thats why feminists are so retarded they want gender equality but they would whine about cs go tournaments because its male dominated scene most of them just dont like males, they dont give a shit either if their views are contradicting as long as they can play the victim

2017-08-21 21:12
literally anyone french. scream doesnt bring as much to the table as people seem to think. but regardless a decent player like devo put in the right positions can have just as good of an impact as scream.

You're joking right ? Do you even know that EU female CS (Juliano/zAAz/vilga/antika and mimichaela) is crushing NA competition ? (and that at the last big female tournament the russian girls beat Dignitas ?) EDIT : but it might be the time Dignitas female beats Dynasty (ex Team Secret) because they are taking advantage of the money/infrastructures 76ers have. EDIT 2 : i'm an idiot and i have totally forgotten that this shitty competition (WESG) only allows teams from the same country. Stupid as fuck and rip EU female. Russian girls still have a shot but rip to the line up with petra (nederlands) , kllyve (belgium), hellrose (bulgaria) and 2 german girls.
2017-08-21 20:04
Your edit2 pretty much captures why this is going to be so easy for NA. Before Team Secret formed, Mimi and Zaaz/Juliano's teams were just starting to lose to Ubinited/Karma. Once they did form, Swedish and Danish female CS completely died. On the other hand, 8 out of the 10 players listed have at least ESEA IM experience, they're all very active with exception to MissHarvey who has missed one season and played Main the season before. They will theoratically slaughter this tournament.
2017-08-21 20:07
my bad I remembered goosebreeder's canadian -harvey +goosebreeder if you're allowed to have more than 2 teammates per country (THINK thats the rule? feel free to correct me) -goosebreeder +emuhleet might be better anyway for IGL reasons, just have to work out something with her and potter for T side roles

EZ 100.000$ for juliano and co (dynasty) ... ... or maybe finally Dignitas female can upset them after benefiting of Philadelphia 76ers infrastructures/sport psychologist/etc EDIT : forgot that you have to make line ups with 5 players from the same country, so dynasty won't be able to play. EZ biggest paycheck ever for NA ..., ridiculous (as female CS is already bad, it's gonna be awful there).

the reason why csgo scene never go big as dota2 is because too much salted kids than a fans who will support their scene in what ever level the tournament is. this is an achievement for csgo scene to receive such huge prizepool and yet the kids still complaining. its better to have tier 4 tournament with 1.5M$ rather than tier1 tournament with 100K$ prizepool. It helps smaller team/org to compete and gaining something big to expand theirselves futher.
2017-08-21 20:21

remove the female prize money and competition and just add it to the male one. don't need to support these trash "girl gamers" you are encouraging them to stay trash and make money from the fact that they have tits instead of skill

WESG organized this event like Olympic or WorldCup system. Well, international team could easily skip this event, but one thing needs to be discussed is that why no international roster teams won a major before(except Gambit, but i bet they speak the same Russsian like language which is easy enough for zeus and sex god). no one dislikes money, just admit that. it would be a good event i believe.
