CS:GO & Cock Roaches – WESG off to a terrible start

WESG, or World Electronic Sports Games in Haikou, China, is the home to the $1,500,000 CS:GO tournament.  Oh, and cock roaches.

Starting March 13th through the 18th, WESG will be broadcasting favorite CS:GO teams such as Team Ukraine (Zeus, Edward, markeloff, s1mple, bondik),  the North American team Cloud9 (tarik, Stewie2K, autimatic, Skadoodle, RUSH), the Brazilians SK Gaming (FalleN,coldzeraferboltz, TACO), and the recent Katowice 2018 Champions, Fnatic (Golden, JW, KRIMZ, Lekr0, flusha).

Some players traveled quite the distance to Haikou, China, just to be greeted by moldy bathrooms, collapsing ceilings, and cock roaches on walls and in faucets.

 

WESG on Twitter responded to the situation:

 

 

Teams like Cloud9 decided it was best to put their players in new hotels immediately, suggesting hotels like Hilton, Marriott, or Sheraton; all known hotel chains in the United States.  @Tarik tweets:

 

Edit: Tarik’s follow up tweet says that the organizers had time to plan the hotel situation, and that some players without organizations don’t really have a choice but to stay in the hotel.

 

@Mixwell, who just recently joined G2 ESPORTS as a trial, tweets that the water was brown, they had no hot water, and the rooms were dusty.  However, as WESG Tweeted, they were working on fixing issues and did resolve the water problem.  But that’s just the water.  There are still roaches, and honestly that’s just not acceptable.

Anyways, with the roaches out of the way, tune in for the matches starting on March 13th.  Check back for updates and bracket information!
