WESG 2019 closed qualifier invites announced

Teams that were invited directly to the WESG 2019 closed qualifiers have been announced, with squads such as HellRaisers, Heroic, and BIG making the list.

Following the reveal of the format and dates for most of the WESG 2019 qualifiers, the tournament organizer behind the event has shared details about the invited teams which will be joining open qualifier squads in the second stage of the competition in their respective regions.

Heroic will be competing for one of the two North Europe spots

Headlining the CIS qualifier are HellRaisers, who are followed by Nemiga and two academy squads, but not Gambit Youngsters. It is important to note that teams such as AVANGAR and Syman did not meet the requirements for this qualifier, and are instead playing the Central Asia qualifier which leads to the APAC LAN event and then to the Global Finals.

In the region named East Europe, Polish teams dominate in invites, Virtus.pro being the highest-ranked one at #22. The most competitive qualifier seems to be North Europe, where three Danish squads — North, Tricked, and Heroic —, as well as HAVU and four open qualifier teams will battle for two Global Finals slots. Heretics will be participating in the West Europe qualifier, while the two most renowned German squads, Sprout and BIG, will have to fend of Iberian challengers to reach the $1,000,000 LAN in China.

Lastly, Entity, Global, and Viva Algeria were invited to their respective qualifiers, with a number of closed qualifier spots, such as the ones for Asian sub-regions, still left to be filled.

Below you can find the closed qualifier invites that have been revealed so far:

CIS: Ukraine HellRaisers, Ukraine Windigo Academy, Belarus Nemiga, CIS NAVI Junior
East EU: Poland Aristocracy, Poland Illuminar, Bulgaria SKADE, Poland Virtus.pro
North EU: Denmark North, Denmark Tricked, Denmark Heroic, Finland HAVU
West EU: France LDLC, France Heretics, United Kingdom Vexed, Europe TBD
Central EU + Iberia: Germany Sprout, Germany BIG, Spain Movistar Riders, Portugal Portugal Qualifier
South Asia: India Entity, India Global
Africa: Algeria Viva Algeria, Other TBD

Not entirely as bad.. If Navi Junior makes it then that’s something to watch. Looking at the rest it’s ok. I’m just hoping that the direct invites would be better and worth it.
