Not since the end of WCG, 3 years ago, have we seen a tournament like WESG. For those unaware of WCG and WESG, the main similarity between the two is the requirement of all players on a team having to come from the same country. WESG's goal seems to be the creat ion of an olympiad for esports, referencing the olympics several times in their announcement.
Even with the limitation of nationality set on the teams, we see plenty of well-known teams and players enter this event. Teams like Fantastic Five, Infamous, Alliance, and TNC are maybe not the top dogs in their regions, but they’re highly skilled competitors. WESG still has an uphill battle ahead of them if they want to be the "olympics of esports", but what we've seen so far seems at least promising.
