The organizers behind the upcoming piXL event have set aside $10,822 for its Counter-Strike 1.6 tournament.
The tournament, which has been dubbed "Back to Basic," will take place during the Malmö fair between March 28-31 in Malmö, Sweden and requires participants to bring their own computers.
According to fragbite.se, the Malmö fair will have room for 1,500 people, and will in addition to Counter-Strike 1.6 also host tournaments in FIFA 13 and Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition.
Back to Basic prize distribution
1. $7,730, invite to next piXL event
2. $2,319, invite to next piXL event
3. $773, invite to next piXL event, hardware
The Swedish event will unfortunately clash with the dates of Copenhagen Games, March 27-31, which will take place at Øksnehallen in Copenhagen, Denmark.
For more information and tickets, you can visit piXL's website by clicking here.

They should change the date, then it will be awesome.
Watch the stream of this tournament to show them how many people still want 1.6.

1- going after money and attend this 1.6 tournament.
2- going after experience and improving in GO.
In march imo they stand no chance in GO competition still.

Doesn't mean anything other than that this is probably one of if not the biggest 1.6 tournament there will be in 2013, so enjoy it but this doesn't mean other organisers will set up another 1.6 tournament :P
Nice to see that 1.6 gets a nice good final run tho
they don't because Copenhagen games is on the same date
yeah GO is rocking these days. thanks 1.6 for being such a great game, for ruling the esports scene for over a decade and providing much needed platform for games like GO to work:)
brain on next time kid.

Let him think he won
others are still titles,but not the top1s,it show he is a good player but never been a great player.
even with a lineup with frod and other top ppls he could not pull 1 big tourny off.I think fan boys should just chill instead of being mad at others.
He is really good player,but that's not enough for him to win against some best teams,this game is a 5 ppls game.The best team iv seen him playing was winfakt,they beat some of the best teams, but lost again to fnatic.
And cut down on the popcorn..you MUST be fat :] .

GO 20k players, 156k prize
Who is mad now?
BTW, who's gonna attend? LOL
and the one who is mad atm is you, for posting here.

The game with 1 Tournament with low prize, is played by 50k players!
The game with a lot of tournaments and big prize, is played by 20k players
Besides it would be nice if we could be able to see some ex-professional players.
when i see a topic in 1.6 i see 30000players post here, in cs go only 10-12, WTF?!?!
1.6 not back
my point was that teams from other countries don't want to travel with their computers to Sweden, they want to rent one from there for the tournament, less trouble you see. It has nothing to do with fps and shit
Post edited 2013-01-29 15:22:42
Ceh9 on his own stream said that a 1.6 tournament will take place in near future and they will attend it. Big respect to organizers and hats down :). Somebody had to start it and I hope more and more tournaments will come in future.
but worth watching if any good teams comes to the final
nice tourney, it is really good to see some organizers who still know what the game is !
Post edited 2013-01-28 23:04:48
1/10 for this troll attempt. Try harder next time. Maybe look up other posts from similar trolls which are more successful than u. U might learn something from them.
Now I'm hoping for a bloody 1.6 comeback and I'm sure that if there is money behind it, anything can happen.
Sadly it looks doubtful though,
dying to watch some live 1.6 action.
Does it mean that Cg will feature CS1.6 as well? I doubt it, so no probs with dates :) GO there and 1.6 here ^^
Anyway ye i wont a 1.6 event BUT WTF is the point. Swedish teams have all moved to csgo. There are no top teams. NAME one top team thats gonna attend. Becide the Brazilians.....LOL
No CSGO player has anything against 1.6 as for most of us it was the game that we spent years of our life playing.
A lot of CSGO players will have an issue with a 1.6 comp, as it is counter productive to the future of the franchise.
No need at all for any hating.
Threat, khrystal, niko, qp, fyrtte, wenton or something ?
maybe even moddii ?
Assuming this location is geographically pretty close to them. Easy money.
Post edited 2013-01-29 03:26:05
It's their decision what they do with that money, don't come here like "Stupid waste of money bla bla bla.."
I hope some teams participate, even if they're small teams, and really hope we can see some coverage of the event. I would love to watch some live matches.
u cant stop plaing the game of chess or cs16(C)
Every topteam is playing go.
i love cs 1.6
and we love cs 1.6
and world palyer love cs 1.6
But it looks so shitty old, I couldn't even enjoy watching a Matchstream of the best Teams ever, so shitty it looks.
I would totaly party a real 1.6 Remake based on the original Code for real on the newest Version of the Sourceengine, but that will probably never happen.
I mean Promod is such a damn good Try, but those Kids crying about everything that isn't identical to the whole 1.6 Codesystem for real.
If only one Bullet of the Recoil Pattern is not 100% 1.6 like the Game is almost worthless for those Guys.
And because of that many CS Sequels of the Future won't have a Chance at all attracting those hardcore based Freaks. Because those you can't call Fans anymore, they are Freaks attracted to a Game that saw Daylight in 1999.
I mean that's ok, those Guys just loving this old Game, but you know what I mean.

Yep, some people will always cry ... but CSP is so damn close to 1.6 ... it's unbelievable how many people want CS:GO to be like 1.6, but they don't try CSP.
And CSP never claimed to be a 1-to-1 1.6 remake. In fact they already improved a lot of stuff, like russian walk, 1st bullet accuracy, the awesome netcode and and and ...
As much as i loved 1.6 ... i will never touch it again, cuz for me the netcode in CSP itself is already a reason to play it. It makes up for the 10% of gameplay missing to be 100% 1.6.
And they already said they gonna IMPROVE the gameplay as soon as it's ready.... IMPROVE ... not completely change it ( hi CS:GO ..).
Post edited 2013-01-30 03:44:44
CSP will have HIGHER res textures than CS:GO, and also nicer custom props like crates and shit.
I mean..if CSP can look like CS:GO, if not better, then why bother with higher requirements for the latest engine?
CSP will have higher textures ? cool. I also heard that CSP will be future.
Btw why highres textures are needed for a game which looks way way way worse than GO (and its not cos of textures)? And in 2013 CSP doesnt even look like an average graphic. Not saying that GO has best graphic atm but new source engines with all new features are still viable in 2013.
I wont even reply to last sentence, 2*if is more than enought to buried your argument without any work.

wish people on this website would face the fact that 1.6 is dead and is NEVER coming back.
i'm very glad
