E-Sports World Cup 2012 champions crowned in Paris

This weekend saw the 2012 E-Sports World Cup draw to a dramatic close, with tournament finals taking place across Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, Trackmania Canyon, Trackmania Nations, Shootmania Storm and Starcraft 2. Winners spilled out of the ESWC arena like Coca-Cola from a Mentos-infused bottle, spraying sticky world champions all over the ceiling. But who are these freshly crowned wundermenschen? Let's take a look at them.

ESWC have uploaded all footage from the tournament finals to the ESWC Dailymotion channel, prime for rewatching and study. Of course, it's not the taking part that counts, so here's the most important bit, the winners:

  • Trackmania Canyon Winner: Kasperi "klovni" Aaltonen (Runners up: Ludo, Onio, Cocow)
  • Trackmania Nations Winner: Spam (Runners up: Tween, Carl Jr, Ned)
  • Shootmania Storm Winner: Colwn (Runner up: Eclypsia)
  • Starcraft 2 Winner: MaNa (Runner up: ForGG)
  • Dota 2 Winner: Na'Vi Gaming (Runner up: Dignitas)
  • Women's Counter-Strike GO Winner: Ubinited (Runner up: Team Alternate)
  • Men's Counter-Strike GO Winner: Ninjas in Pyjamas (Runner up: Verygames)
  • FIFA 13 Winner: Spank (Runner up: Ovvy)
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Winner: Knee

In total, across nine tournaments, prize money of $165,000 was distributed among winners. Photos, details and dubstep can all be found on the official ESWC website.
