€10,000 CS:GO tourney in Paris
By: MIRAA
Time: 2013-02-15 18:44
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

The organisers behind the GeeX Festival have revealed more information about the tournaments that will be held at the event.

Earlier in the month, a video about a new French LAN party with 2,000 seats was posted on YouTube, catching the eye of the community even though there was no mention of any big-money tournaments being played.

It has now been revealed that the GeeX Festival, which will take place from May 3rd to 5th in Paris, will play host to a €10,000 CS:GO tournament for a total of 32 teams.

There will also be a female CS:GO tournament with €1,750 in prizes, and CS 1.6 and CS:Source competitions, both with prize purses amounting to €750.

A ticket to the festival costs €89, but it includes access to the tournaments, exhibition area, concerts and parties.

I think it would be better to see the prizemoney getting higher by normal evolution of the esports scene. If you already hand out 20-50k now, how should this be beaten in the future? ^^
2013-02-15 18:57:38
With 100k tournaments and even higher ones?
Back in the days we had higher pricemoney for Counter-Strike.
I mean, you barely get anything out of a 10k tournament if you may win like 6000€ and you're from the Ukraine for instance. 5-6 flights (manager)and back to the Ukraine. Hotel + things you have to buy there. Oh and tournament fee 5x.
2013-02-15 19:03:50
€13,250 would be good
2013-02-15 18:58:58
why 13 250??
why not 13 500?
xD
2013-02-15 19:05:28
10 000 + 1750 + 750 + 750
2013-02-15 19:08:47
10 000 + 1750 + 750 + 500 = 13,000 . So we would watch a 3rd place decider match :)
2013-02-15 19:55:41
I was hinting that they should drop female go, 1.6 and css to have a bigger prize pot for cs:go

"CS 1.6 and CS:Source competitions, both with prize purses amounting to €750"

xD
2013-02-16 04:22:52
when i see this, i remember old 1.6 days with $25,50,100k prize tourneys. "Global Offensive will get better prizes than 1.6" they said.

They said that 1.6 will never die.

They said that 1.6 was BEST esports game.

And as far as i know 10k for go event is still more than 0 which is exactly number of 1.6 events xD
2013-02-16 12:15:16
whats up, you got hit by my comment!? you argue nothing
2013-02-16 12:33:16
you argue nothing - nice one.

Nah but it seems that u got hit by my comment.

Just seems so ridiculous to se those die hard 1-6 fans crying at everythread how low prizes are.

But none of them realise that there is 10x times more events. Than it was in 1.6.

And some of then dont even realise that there is no 1.6 anymore... Truth hurts i know.
2013-02-16 12:39:51
whats up mad 1.6 is dead?
2013-02-16 12:40:55
Would love VG to win this. They kinda deserve a 1st place for once.
2013-02-16 12:43:11
I just love France <333! They always try to include female tourney :3

#74, 77, 79 ... How are this comments still allowed? Nothing but blatant trolling. On the plus side, since they can't keep away for some reason, I guess they are part of CSGO community. :D
2013-02-16 13:03:37
Its funny all this flame towards csgo is alowed but as soon as you mention the catastrophc failure that is CSpromod scypher and pus delete it within minutes.
2013-02-16 15:03:59
