First round of matches finished
Time: 2013-02-23 12:00
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

After a usual delay, the first round of matches of group A and B is finally over with the favourites from each group getting three points.

Day one at Mad Catz CS:GO Invitational has already begun, and, as usual, the first matches were delayed due to computer problems.

VeryGames were the first team to finish off with their match as they went on to beat logiX 16-3 not having any problems in the process.

The Germans seem to have changed a player only two days prior to the tournament, with Florian "syrsoN" Rische leaving the roster due to "no desire to put more time into Counter-Strike". DotpiXels player David "DavoN" Maislinger is playing as a stand-in for the team.

The Germans continued to disappoint in their matches as Imaginary turned their battle against TCM-Gaming around after losing 6-9 as Terrorists before the teams swapped roles.

Nostalgie had to wait over an hour for their match against NiP to begin due to problems with Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund's computer. The spare time seemed to have helped the Russians in the beginning of the game, but the Swedes caught up after being down 7-2 to finish off the match 16-8 in their favor.

2013-02-23 12:03:52
Doesnt matter if you don't like Richard. I like him as a commentator and he does a great job compared to the others we have.
2013-02-23 12:04:18
If you would understand Russian, you would say that sL4M & tafa > all other commentators, that's 4 sure. But yeah, overall Richard doing good.

2013-02-23 12:35:51
That's because you don't understand Russian. :D

Joe Miller is a pretty subpar commentator. I like him, but as a commentator he is dead average at best.
2013-02-23 19:06:06
agree, while wathich theirs streams acquire a lot of useful and interesting info, also they show all important aspects of gaming, so it is easy to understand, unlike others watching and just looking for score.
2013-02-23 13:02:48
Exactly, that's what I'm trying to say. They are just different than others casters.
2013-02-23 13:15:49
wish there were someone like them who would cast in english :/
2013-02-23 14:43:21
Dont know the fps, but to screens only have 75Hz
2013-02-23 12:07:27
Oztrik3r, what a quality player!
2013-02-23 12:11:52
Expected, Nice play by OverDrive though.

P.S- Told you Bainshie, NiP's gonna be more interesting than VG's!
