WESG 2017 Americas Qualifiers will be held online

Due to the current migration policy of USA, that causes multiple visa issues, Alisports made a decision to shift WESG 2017 Americas Qualifiers Final from LAN to Online format. Prize pool and number of spots to Grand Final will remain the same. Dates of the WESG Americas Qualifiers Finals also will be the same - February 1 to 4.

"Since the visa application for some of the players are tough. To ensure the equality participation and safety of players, we decide to shift it online", - official comment of Alisports.
