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.
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.
