WCA postpones 2017 event

The WCA 2017 Finals have been postponed to next year, the event's organisers have announced.

World Cyber Arena has revealed that, "after careful consideration", the 2017 Finals, originally scheduled for December 17-22, will run at an unspecified date in 2018.

According to the announcement, this postponement is not only "due to the events, tournaments schedule and player plan conflicts", but also because of "Christmas and other major tournaments like ELEAGUE Major".

Luminosity have qualified for the WCA 2017 Finals

Although the ECS Season 4 Finals do not affect most of the teams that are confirmed for WCA 2017 Finals—only Luminosity are still battling for a place at the Mexican event —, the fact that the dates of the two competitions clashed is believed to have influenced the decision.

With only the Chinese and the Wild Card qualifiers still to be played, here is how the list of participants of WCA 2017 Finals, which will be held in Yinchuan, China, currently looks:

Singapore BOOT-d[S]
Australia Chiefs
Denmark Heroic
Kazakhstan Gambit
Brazil Luminosity
Argentina Isurus
Iraq Next Generation
Iraq Valour

Are you mad because a team from Argentina will actually attend a LAN that HLTV notices the existence of and I said it wasn't a good tournament? Lol, in the context of pro CS Isurus must suck because I've never heard of them. They're not even top 100
2017-11-23 00:45
+1, even though they don't actually suck that much as they're one of the best teams in SA. The fact that he says that the players are better than you is stupid.
2017-11-23 02:56
don't mind him, he's been doing nothing else than copy pasting in every thread involving Isurus or any other national team, without really paying attention to what the comment he's replying states

Are you actually mental? Kazakhstan's whole territory is in Asia, not even a part in Europe, wtf?
2017-11-23 07:08
actually, no, part of it's territory is in Europe, they can be considered both Eastern Europeans and Central Asians
