Nationality rule relaxed for WESG 2019-2020 event ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

World Electronic Sports Games have dropped the single nationality restriction from its rulebook for this year's event. It will now allow teams to have up to two foreigners on their rosters, with the remaining three players being of the same nationality. 

This new development opens up the event to a lot of orgs that were previously left out and will reduce the number of teams that have a national mix. This gives existing teams that have been playing with an eligible roster before now an added advantage. 

Teamwork and good communication between players would help eligible teams like Liquid, NRG and Na’Vi win, if they participate. However, these mixed teams often lead to interesting matches and will now reduce thanks to the new rule. 

WESG is an esports championship established in 2016 and organised by AliSports. Its single nationality rule had the tournament leaning more towards an Olympic structure, but with it gone, other changes could soon follow.
