The Ukraine team that was expected to compete at the WESG 2018 Ukraine Finals has declined the tournament organizer's invitation.

The team formed by Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev, Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko, Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev, Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow and Vladyslav "bondik" Nechyporchuk, that won last year's WESG 2017 EU & CIS Finals—albeit with Yegor "markeloff" Markelov instead of ANGE1—has pulled out of the Ukraine LAN finals. The news comes as they declined an invite from the tournament organizer despite having announced earlier on that they would team up for this year's edition.

s1mple & co. rejected the invitation to the Ukrainian LAN finals

A team named djakuyu formed by members of Vega Squadron, Spirit, and pro100 has been the only invited team to the LAN as another qualifier has been put in place to decide who will take Ukraine's spot.

The Ukrainian WESG Finals, which will take place on December 21-23 in Kiev, will also have Windigo Academy, the winners of the first qualifier, and two more teams hailing from two qualifiers, making it a 4-team LAN that will see the winner earn a spot in the World Finals.

djakuyu's lineup is:

Ukraine Igor "crush" Shevchenko
Ukraine Dmitriy "jR" Chervak
Ukraine Viktor "somedieyoung" Orudjev
Ukraine Ivan "AiyvaN" Semenets
Ukraine Pavel "COLDYY1" Veklenko

The event sucks anyways. The prize pool makes it a bit attractive but the rule of having all players from the same country within a team is hardly retarded.
2018-11-21 19:23
So it isn't retarded?

wtf are you want
2018-11-21 19:42
I kind of like the idea tbh, i just wish it were a better event. The idea of them all being from the same country is sort of cool because it gives everyone a specific team to root for

I don't like it at all because we see too many trash teams. I also like club football way more than football with national teams.
2018-11-21 23:21
the only reason there are trash teams is because they have qualifiers for regions with a bad csgo scene. The european teams and a few of the asian teams are good
2018-11-21 23:44
And because so few big name players bother attending, despite the prize pool. Its really unfortunate
2018-11-22 11:37
easy ways to improve that: 1: spend more money to make the tournament not shit (china is getting lots of money, easy to do) 2: schedule the tournament for a time where there aren't other big tournaments or tournament qualifiers
2018-11-22 14:14
WESG being prepared so early before the actual event taking place allows bigger and better tier 1 events to come in and snatch the dates tho. Agree there are a lot of improvements that can be made to the event tho
2018-11-22 14:43
yes I will simply wait in hopes that a high tier country v country tournament can be made at some point because I think they are very fun idea

EURO and WC not (Russia was bad tho and not cuz Germany sucked balls. The event was simply not WC worthy). USA, France, Germany, South Africa, Brazil* were sick af. Friendlies and qualifiers suck hard tho. *Brazil and South Africa best of all imo.
2018-11-21 23:51
WCG was big in 1.6, one of my fav events, and you could only play with guys from your country
