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.
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 HLTV.org will naturally provide you coverage of them.
