Viewer's guide: WESG World Finals

1
It's time for probably the largest CS:GO tournament of the year, as the 2017 WESG circuit comes to a close with the WESG World Finals 2017, held at the Haikou International Convention & Exhibition Center, Hainan province, China.
The huge 1.5 million dollar event sees 32* teams from all around the world in attendance, battling it out for their share of the prize-pool, with $800,000 going to the eventual victors.

*Due to various reasons two teams, EMC and Ukraine, have pulled out of the event, reducing the number of teams to 30.

Some of the familiar looking team names do have changes due to teams competing at WESG having to have players of the same nationality. For example Team Envyus are playing with former player Christophe "SIXER" Xia in place of Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom who is representing Belgium.

The event does however, see some full rosters from some of the best teams in the world, with Major champions Cloud9 in attendance, as well as Fnatic attending off the back of their win at IEM Katowice. World number two SK Gaming are also in attendance, as are German side BIG.

Schedule and format

Group Stage 1

The tournament begins with a group stage, where the 30 contestants have been divided into eight different groups. These groups are to be determined by the more traditional "Round Robin" format and all matches are played over 1 map.

The two best teams from each group move on to the next phase, the others are eliminated from the tournament.

Group Stage 2


The 16 teams that survived the first group game are divided once again, this time into four groups. Once again the "Round Robin" format will be used, however, these matches will be best-of-two maps. The two best teams in each group will then progress into the playoffs.

The Playoffs


This is where we get down to business. The best-of-three, single bracket playoff will determine who walks away with the lion's share of the huge prize-pool!
