WCA EU Qualifier

Esports Asia News
The second season of qualifiers for the $200,000 WCA 2016 Finals includes a European qualifier hosted by UCC and qualification information is now available. * Update : A number of players, such as Jordan “n0thing” Gilbert and Nicolai “glace” Jensen, have expressed concern about the European qualifiers taking place during the off-season. HLTV.org has reached out to these players for further comment. The World Cyber Arena announced their $200,000 foray into CS:GO back in March, which laid out three seasons of qualifiers, each one featuring a Chinese component and an international component, with the winners of each season meeting in Yinchuan in December where 1.35 million Yuan (~$200,000) will be on offer. The first season’s international qualifier was devoted to the APAC (Asia-Pacific) region and the offline finals in Beijing saw TyLoo emerge victorious over VG.CyberZen in the China Finals and Australian Immunity and Malaysian MVP.karnal qualify for the World Finals via the APAC Finals. Two European teams will compete against DD’s TyLoo and five others in December With the online portion of China’s Season 2 qualifier having already concluded (VG.CyberZen and EHOME have advanced to the offline Finals), the event organisers have announced the European qualifiers to the Season 2 Finals, where two spots to the December World Finals will be on offer. Unlike the APAC Finals, the winners of the European qualifier will not fly to Beijing, China for their respective Season 2 Finals.
