Germany outvotes China by 300.000 in eStars poll

ImageThe votes cast in the eStars 2009 poll have been made public and the results see Germany and France casting almost 50% of the votes.

According to eStars the 2008 poll only received 280,000 votes compared to the 1,503,179 votes cast this time, an increase of almost six fold. Germany had 31.2% of the total votes this year with 468,453 votes, followed by France with 27.5% (413,244 votes), while China only managed to scrape together 11.2% (167,654 votes).

Also surprising is the fact that Korea and Sweden, two important centres for eSports only managed to count for 1.6% of the votes combined. Likewise the USA only constituted 4.3% of total votes.

The public vote counts for 50% with player achievements counting for 20% of the votes and the other 30% from the eStars Committee. Despite shouts of foul play, with the three German Warcraft3 players which included relatively unknown Leon 'TastyLeon' Hoge of mTw managing to beat the likes of Manuel 'Grubby' Schenkhuizen, Pedro 'LucifroN' Moreno Durán and Dmitriy 'Happy' Kostin, there has been no comment made by eStars.
