ESWC qualifier registration ends 29th

September 24th, 2012 19:22

ESEA is hosting the ESWC 2012 online qualifier for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in the UK, Germany and Nordic region with the registration closing on Saturday, September 29.

With this year's E-Sports World Cup only hosting an eight team tournament for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the online qualification plays an even more important role compared to last year when teams could also receive direct invitations.

Currently only recent DreamHack Valencia and IOS SteelSeries GO champions Ninjas in Pyjamas, Niko "naSu" Kovanen's CARAMBA, GIVE IT ALL and Blight Gaming have confirmed their participation in the Nordic qualifier.

The German qualifier has logiX, n!faculty, ALTERNATE and UNNORMAL with completed registrations, while Team gamed!de is still missing their fifth member to guarantee themselves a spot.

NiP are looking to qualify for ESWC 2012

Finally, the United Kingdom qualifier has fm.TOXiC, Copenhagen Games CS:S winners mousesports, Sympho Nympho and Team CRG registered with 4Kings being close to completing their participation.

Registration closes on Saturday September 29 and is open to everyone until then. You only need to have ESEA Premium accounts for every member of the team in order to be able to participate in the qualifier.

The entire qualifier is played on ESEA's servers located within their regions and using their industry leading anti-cheat client to ensure fair games. Matches are set to start on October 1 and will naturally provide you coverage of them.

Nice, gl to all of them

So what qualifier will mtw play in lol
2012-09-24 19:28
German one should be fair, since mTw is a german organization, and the ESWC rules say that any team that has less than 3 players from a qualifying region, will qualifty from the region of the eSport club, if and only if the organization is legal. so mix country teams can't sign up unless they are supported by a legal company. it's still unclear to me what happens to teams that aren't from germany, nordic or england ....will they not have any chance to play in eswc?

so bascily the ESWC is only allowing teams from England, Germany and the Nordic region to qualify for ESWC is this fair? atleast make a european qualifier for countries wich don't have a national one ....what if Navi and ESC want to sign up for ESWC? pretty unfair imo

You only need to have ESEA Premium accounts for every member of the team in order to be able to participate in the qualifier. They say that as if it has always cost loads previously.

wuut? I'm saying that you never had to pay last time for qualification. ESEA have moved over to EU and the first thing they do is force us to pay for a qualifier that was previously free (atleast afaik in the uk).

despite they fact that you had to provide an server at the time. I guess there main reason is to use it because of the anti cheat client and a save server
