E-Sports Entertainment (ESEA) has announced that it will host the ESWC qualifiers in Germany, Nordic region and the United Kingdom.

The ESWC world finals will take place from November 1-4 at the Porte de Versailles in Paris, with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive being played in a side tournament, with smaller prizes than the official competitions.

Registration for each qualifier started on Tuesday and will stay open until September 29, with the first matches scheduled to take place on October 1.

The qualifiers are limited to 64 teams and the places will be filled on a first-come-first-serve basis. A single elimination best-of-one system will be used until the quarter-finals, when a best-of-three mode will come into effect.

To sign up for the qualifiers, check the links below. While the registration is free, every player needs to have an ESEA Premium account in order to play.

The winners of these qualifiers will secure a spot at the ESWC finals and a paid trip to Paris for the tournament.

Yeah, that's kinda stupid. Of course you don't need to pay 20$ to get that premium account but still, stupid. Looks like ESEA just want to get some money from Europeans.

I seriously doubt they're in it for the immediate money influx as trying to build their Euro community. In fact that's probably why they took over running the tournament in the first place, seeing it as a way to promote their brand.

5e isnt much and you get alot for your money. Europeans are really missing out on this. ESEA is a great product and it's no wonder they have the monopol in America.
