WESG EU & CIS qualifiers set to start

The online qualifiers for the WESG 2017 European & CIS Finals will kick off on Monday, with 20 spots at the $92,500 event up for grabs.

Over the next month, qualifiers will be held all over Europe to determine the teams who will be competing at the WESG European & CIS Finals, which will take place in Barcelona, Spain, from November 22-26. 

In addition to a $92,500 prize pool, the Spanish event will also have 12 qualification spots for WESG 2017, a $1.5 million competition that will be held in China, in March. All competing teams must have players of the same country, making mixed-nationality teams, such as FaZe or Liquid, ineligible to compete.

fnatic have signed up for the Swedish qualifier

The first European qualifier, to be held in Ukraine, is garnering a lot of attention in the community as it will feature a mix team led by Natus Vincere captain Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko, who has linked up with players like Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev and Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow

Teams can sign up for their respective national or regional qualifiers by clicking on the links below. All qualifiers listed are the ones held by Starladder; Russia, Iberia and Benelux will have their qualifiers hosted by different companies, with details about the first two still to be announced.

2017-09-25 12:31
Well, we need to confirm your nationality or citizenship. That's normal.
2017-09-25 17:04
I know, does ID card counts?
2017-09-25 17:37
Any document which can confirm that you're as example Latvian citizen, or have Latvian nationality.
2017-09-25 17:38
Alrighty, thank you for answer. I might come back with more Qs. ;)
2017-09-25 17:51
Can people with same nationality, but with different location (living in different countries) could play together?
2017-09-26 09:52
Yes. You can live in Denmark or other country, but you need all 5 to have same nationality or citizenship.
2017-09-26 17:45
Thanks for answer.
