The World E-sports Championships is now upon us. Even after a few hitches and snags along the way, in which the organizers have cancelled the qualifiers for both the American and European continents to favor sending out direct invites to teams that they want to participate. They only had qualifiers for the Chinese and South East Asian regions. Bad luck seemed to follow the World E-sports Dota 2 Championships around when the new Team Secret (which mainly consists of former Na'Vi and Alliance players) had their visa applications denied which prompted the organizers to replace Team Secret with Na'Vi.
Finally the eight teams are complete tom compete for the more than $100,00 prize pool. The LAN tournament will be start on September 5, 2014 and will end on September 7, 2014.
