WESG Finals date announced

The dates for WESG Finals have been announced. The finals will now be held from the 12-15th January at the Olympic Center in Changzhou, China. The tournament which will see a total of 24 teams participating in the event will have a prize pool of $1,500,000.

The format for the event will be a round robin Best of Two format in the Group stage. It is bound to have some tied places which has not gone well with the fans in the past. But we will see it yet again after watching the format become unpopular at EPICENTER.

The 24 teams will be split into four groups of six teams each and the first-placed team will proceed straight to the quarter-finals, while the second and third-placed teams will battle it out for the last four playoff spots.

The prize pool distribution will be as follows:
