WESG announces first group stage schedule

MIRAA
March 12th, 2018 12:35

WESG has revealed the schedule for the first group stage of its 2017 World Finals.

Running from Tuesday to Sunday, the $1.5 million WESG event will begin with a best-of-one round-robin stage featuring eight groups, with the top two teams from each group progressing to the next stage.

The 16 remaining teams will then be split into four round-robin groups, but in this stage the matches will feature a best-of-two format. At the end of this stage, the top two teams from each group will earn spots in the single-elimination, best-of-three playoffs. 

GODSENT will open up the action on the main stream

With Group H having been reduced to just two teams following the withdrawals of NOREG and EMC, MAX and ORDER have already booked spots in the next group stage, with their match being played only for seeding purposes. Group E, headlined by EnVyUs, is down to three teams after Ukraine decided to skip the tournament.

Below you can find the schedule for the first group stage:

How id that worse than first starting at 4 at night and last match 11 in the morning? Legit wont watch a single match
2018-03-12 13:12
In Brazil it start at 00:00 and finish at 06:00 am Who the hell will chose to not sleep to watch WESG matches? LUL
2018-03-12 13:58
> Who the hell will chose to not sleep to watch WESG matches? Exactly, so idk why people complain about bad schedule. xD

"Night or nighttime (sp. night-time or night time) is the period of time between sunset and sunrise, when the Sun is below the horizon." I'm sorry but its night.
2018-03-12 14:14
Only formally. For example in the winter many people wake up at 5-6 AM to go to school/university/work although it's still "night". ;)
2018-03-12 14:21

 | 
Italy John Dorian 
That doesn't change the fact that its still night-time though. People waking up to go to work doesn't change that fact.
2018-03-12 14:24
Actually it does. :D For example, you have work contract for $5k per a month, but your boss pays only $1k per a month. So formally your salary is $5k, but IN FACT you get only $1k. So you can call 4-5-6 AM "night", "morning" or even "evening" or whatever you want, but it doesn't change the actual fact.
2018-03-12 14:36

 | 
Italy John Dorian 
No it does not.
2018-03-12 14:39
I agree that it doesn't change the definition of "night". But also if you check the definition of "morning" in the Cambridge dictionary you will see this: "the part of the day from the time when the sun rises or you wake up until the middle of the day or lunch time" dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/engl..

"4 is morning, not night, LUL." This is what you said when I said it was night. I'm sorry but I along with 95% of the world does not wake up at 4. Its night, the end.
2018-03-12 15:04
Ok, ok.
2018-03-12 15:05
Daytime have 12 hours and initiate 6 AM and end 18 (6) PM 12 hours Nightime Begin 18(6) PM and end 6 AM 12 hours The day have 24 hours . Thanks , nothing
2018-03-12 15:41
Morning is when you wake up, night is when you sleep. In between is day. ez

Italy John Dorian 
Yeah so its individual which means what I said is right, its night since I sleep at that time, which 95% of people do aswell. Formally its still night though.
2018-03-12 14:56
Welcome to being in Australia for once. You don't need to watch each game live.
2018-03-12 13:06
it's not for first time, but most people are too selfish, so they will rather complain about bad schedule instead of being happy for other people from countries like Australia who have bad schedule for most tournaments.
2018-03-12 14:17
I mean. I don't care if some random dude 69 thousand miles away can't watch a game. It doesn't make me able to watch a game.
2018-03-12 14:51
Well, i don't see a reason I should care about your exact same complaint I have most tournaments then. I don't want to stay up until 5am to watch tournaments, but I make time for significant matches because I am a fan of the game. Again, you don't have to watch live just so you can spam some memes in the twitch chat or HLTV thread.

"With Group H having been reduced to just two teams following the withdrawals of NOREG and EMC, MAX and ORDER have already booked spots in the next group stage, with their match being played only for seeding purposes." More important than the major btw Tournament is a big joke
2018-03-12 12:43
+1 and i thought last year's event was a joke with all those trash teams. they managed to make the biggest prizepool in cs:go the biggest joke tournament ever. with the bottom half not getting any money, those byes for max and order are even worse in terms of competitive integrity.
