The long European qualification road to Kiev will come to an end. This upcoming Sunday and Monday, the 18th and 19th of December, the StarCraft II and Counter-Strike Stage 3 qualifiers will be played. The 7 best StarCraft II players and the 5 best Counter-Strike teams will go on and participate in Kiev in January 2012.
The StarCraft II qualification will take place on Sunday and Monday, the 18th and 19th. The double-elimination bracket with 32 players contains a lot of big names and there are still six players from Stage 1 in the race for a Kiev spot. MrBitter and RotterdaM will be back in action to cast the event on both days, to make sure you miss nothing.
The Counter-Strike qualification will be played on Sunday, the 18th, in a double elimination Best-of-One. The top 5 teams will be going to the Global Challenge Kiev. It is impressive to see how many teams from the first Stage are still in the race. ESL TV with the one and only Joe Miller will broadcast the event live.
