The Contintal Finals Americas are done and we have seen some hard matches for Americas' Global Finals spots for CeBIT in Hannover early next year. A big applause to the winners of this weekend: In both CS 1.6 and WoW three teams qualified and will go to CeBIT early next year. But with two more Continental Finals to go we have still a lot more to come!
We conducted an interview with EG's manager d00bi0us. He talks about his team's bad performance, his attitude against the returning CGS teams and the trouble with no-shows from one of his US players and his Canadian team.

Last weekend the Continental Finals Asia WoW that took place in Seoul. We have our happy winners, but who will actually be going to the Global Finals in Hannover, Germany, and who will be going to the Continental Finals Asia CS in Chengdu, China? Let us clear the fog a little!
It's interesting to see how much focus GStar puts on the business-side of games. There is a business center, that is almost as large as the public area. In addition to that there's a congress upstairs with speakers and presentations about the future of the gaming industry, mainly the Korean one.
When people think of eSports, they think of Korea. To be there when ESL first steps into the motherland of eSports is very exciting. Korea in general and GStar specifically are fascinating places. Imagination went wild before the trip, and reality can easily keep up with it.
All Global Challenges are finished and we are ready to determine the participants of the Global Finals. First of all the Asian World of Warcraft teams get their chance. Twelve teams compete for $30,000 and two of them will qualify for the Global Finals. The ESL is of course on spot to cover it for our readers. Videos, pictures, blogs, live stream and much, much more are to be expected!
The coverage for Seoul and Philadelphia will now go live! With all the Global Challenges put to the past, we move on to the even more interesting Continental Finals without hesitation. The World Cyber Games that took place this weekend will not be considered as the last event of 2008: Intel Extreme Masters is moving on! Read up on everything before the event starts! News, blogs, information, results, videos, behind the curtain information and much more!
