National teams fight under their countryâ€™s banner for a $100,000 total prize pool.
Organized by E-Frag, and to be streamed on Azubu.tv, the World Championship 2016 is another tournament which requires teams to be composed of players of the same nationality. Last yearâ€™s champions, France, which consisted of players from Team EnVyUs and G2 Esports, defeated Poland 3:1 in the grand finals.
A total of 93 teams faced each other in the regional qualifiers to earn their place in the LAN finals, which will take place on October 12-16, 2016 in Belgrade, Serbia. The first-place winner will get $50,000. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th placers will receive $25,000, $10,000, and $5,000 respectively.
The 8 qualifying teams are:
Europe (3 slots):
North America (1 slot):
South America (1 slot):
Asia (1 slot):
Africa (1 slot):
Oceania (1 slot):
Note that France replaced Kazakhstan due to Russian player Mikhail “DOSIA” Stolyarov playing as Evgeniy “ZLEX” Kim during the match â€“ earning them a disqualification, a one-year ban for Kazakhstanâ€™s national team, and a two-year ban for the players on the Kazakhstan roster, and a two-year ban for DOSIA. Canada will also be replacing the USA, due to their failure to submit a lineup within the allotted time, and Singapore will be replacing China due to their players failing to secure a visa in time.
Which country will come out on top? Weâ€™ll find out this October.
