WCG to drop CS 1.6 - Report
Time: 2012-06-14 21:37
Game: Counter-Strike 1.6

According to rakaka, another major tournament organizer World Cyber Games is going to drop Counter-Strike 1.6 as a game title.

Although no official word from the WCG camp has been announced so far, rakaka claims that highly informed sources have told them the olympics of gaming are not going to feature Counter-Strike 1.6 in 2012.

Originally World Cyber Games was rumoured to be dropping PC games altogether and focusing on the mobile platforms, but those rumors were eventually proved wrong by WCG's announcement.


Was WCG 2011 the final event to host a tournament in CS 1.6? 

At the time it was assumed that WCG would still feature Counter-Strike 1.6 due to the event being held in China where CS is still regarded as a popular title.

Should WCG go ahead with dropping Counter-Strike 1.6 as a game title, they would be the second major event organizer to do so within a short time frame following Intel Extreme Masters' announcement earlier today.

No one needs any skills to play that lame game.
You just download it and play it.
Don't compare it to CS. Its not a substitute either.
2012-06-14 22:58:45
Dota 2.
2012-06-14 23:02:13

'You just download it and play it.'
Oh really? You don't say? That's how games work.
2012-06-15 12:31:12
don't cry kiddo, anyone who played any blizzard's rts would be good at LOL in 5 minutes but you can't say that someone who plays quake will be good at cs.
2012-06-15 15:19:30
Did you even get what I posted?
I did not say anything about the contents of his post but how he posted it.
I just lol'ed at the fact that he argued "LOL is easy, you just download it and play it" which is a stupid comment.
2012-06-29 16:47:04
you're so wrong

2012-06-15 11:27:26
LoL = no skill 4 button game for idiots who couldn't even make it in WoW. GG for playing that shit
2012-06-16 16:30:17
How much buttons do you use on CS? w,a,s,d, ctrl? Hmmm, if you look the skill by the buttons that you use...
2012-06-16 16:34:10
lol, that were my first thoughts :D

What was the reason for fnatic to prefer your project over the one which was being orchestrated by these three players?

"I think they went by the "blood is thicker than water"-mentality. Also they are aware that CS might only have 1-1.5 years left as the main e-sport title it is today, so it wouldn´t be right to hand over the legacy, which took years to create, to ex-SK players. I personally believe their decision to reject my ex-team members´ project was proven to be the right thing as they never actually were that loyal to each other, as they stated. This was proven last week when two of them joined up with SK, only to leave Gux behind."

RIP CS, this will always mean a lot to me, I played it for 8 years. It's always sad to see something you love dying, but I guess it's time to move on. Maybe CS2 that Valve talked about will be as awesome as 1.6 was.
2012-06-14 21:40:27
By the time Valve releases CS2 you won't be interested in playing games
2012-06-14 22:13:57

Seriously are you retarded or what? this page should give news about cs 1.6 and here is one .. and it won't ever affect neither IEM nor WCG to let CS 1.6 as one of the games played there
2012-06-14 23:00:44
You misunderstood me. I was not talking about HLTV.org. I am talking about both IEM and WCG, dropping Counter-Strike 1.6 probably for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
2012-06-15 01:10:39
Nothing. Interest in CS 1.6 outside of Europe is very low, and that's a big fat NO to sponsors. Let's face it, the game is old as shit. It's sad to see it die, but expected.
2012-06-15 01:57:53
It's ridiculous. In this year IEM event, we had almost double viewers more than every single other game combined together, even Joe Miller confirmed that. The situation is bad in America, but not that much in Asia. The CPL is probably coming up with a minor event this year in China. It's not dead yet, at least not for the following two years or so. Yes, of course that the sponsors are pushing the organization to drop it, but it is simply not enough, even so there are going to be more tournaments on the way, such as ESWC and Dreamhack. There is no competitive FPS game currently that can replace it and without a FPS game, there will be a huge lack of viewers for sure.
2012-06-15 02:14:43
cpl = scam
2012-06-15 05:06:22
Maybe. CPL had already made a StarCraft II tournament, so I do believe that the CPL will launch a minor CS 1.6 event this year.
2012-06-15 10:05:52
Both last events Poles have won. The best team in CS 1.6

There is no reason to drop, wtf is wrong with these organizers. It's CS that made them, now they think they can just throw it away? If CS is not hosted I have no reason to watch WCG anymore.

AHAHAHA "Crossfire" but no CS.

These are the same faggots who were talking about dropping PC games and playing mobile-phone games instead.

2012-06-14 21:57:29
+1 What can we do? Z8Games are giving them too much money, so their crap can be presented in WCG.

2012-06-14 21:57:48
So they seriously plan to host Crossire but not cs? fkin kiddin me? Downloaded Crossfire and played it few times, it SUCKS SO BAD? DAFUQ?
2012-06-14 21:58:11
Seriously, only noob kids/immature guys/low skilled playing CrossFire and say CS 1.6 copy CF, sad story
WTF going with this world?
2012-06-14 22:20:21
It's easy to understand since Crossfire is developed by a Korea company, SmileGate. And WCG is a Korea operation too.

it seemed some kind of business
2012-06-15 18:35:27

2012-06-14 22:20:02
Ppl don`t play 1.6 cuz there are big tournaments such as wcg or iem. Nearly half of cs players even don`t know anything about tournaments. This can only mean some pause for professional gamers. Nowdays people in the gaming industry only chase for profits and 1.6 isn`t profitable for them, so they will try to replace it with GO or something else. 1.6 community now can only wait for some changes in the industry.

2012-06-14 22:51:35
Stop whining kids.If 2 events dropped 1.6 that does not mean it's dead.It's just 2 good tournament dropping 1.6 and it is not even fully dropped.Just play the game,watch the streams and have fun or whatever you plan on doing.There is still tournaments and it could be worse.Dreamhack Summer is in 2 days so let's focus on that make sure 1.6 is worth it and quit whining.Plus how much do you really suffer from cs not being on WCG and IEM NoEurope?It is a rhetorical question don't answer me.
EDIT: Professional 1.6 players undoubtedly are to be blamed for these drops.They make no streams (except few,but still even they rarely) ,and in no way they communicate to fans or help the game,thats for all except Lurppis.

Brutal news for the 1.6 community but 1.6 is like a grandparent with a terminal illness, It's dying a slow painful death unlike BroodWar that's going out in class and style, You guys could probably learn something from the StarCraft community.

The true legends that's still playing this game and mastered it on the very top since like 2005 wont cry a sinlge bit over this. f0rest, Neo, taz, kuben, loord, robban, face and such guys must feel a bloody relief i bet.

Its time to move on for those biggest tournaments with finest sponsors, dont blaim them for doing that. They been extra generous for CS 1.6 in several years of overtime.

In this moment we have it on paper: CS 1.X now officially belongs to the e-sport cultural heritage, 4evah.
2012-06-14 22:47:02
hahahahaahhaha i'm rofling right now!!!it was expected..dreamhack summer might be the last tournament. Valve always has the way to support their games. the did exactly the same thing with 1.5 which was better than 1.6. one day they said ok we are closing the servers bb and everyone went to 1.6 its ok by me i will play cs:go

its sad that 1.6 is sidelined(considering its the best competitive fps title),maybe someone should do a remake of 1.6(BECAUSE everything has to be real pretty and shallow on the inside:S),i guess all we have is hope that promod will become big,i personally think this could be like wcg05 when they pushed for source,saw it was crap and went back to 1.6 :D

2012-06-14 23:27:29
i dont think that is ESL or WCG fault, if u wanna blame someone blame valve, they are paying the organizers to remove cs 1.6 of the scene, so they kill cs 1.6 to be able to push csgo to the market, they dont wanna lose money again (cs source), so now they know what to do...we are not gonna play csgo, then they kill 1.6 and game over.

There is still so many new young players and cs is really active, it just needs more tournaments, not killing it

2012-06-15 00:56:39
Valve, do you think we care? do you think we play for money? there is no way you can get us out from cs 1.6 (unless you hack our pcs and delete it, would be smart move tbh)
2012-06-15 01:02:24
How are Valve to blame for any of this?

If Valve were behind it they would have created another version of "The International" Tournament for CS instead of stripping existing tournaments.

My God, are you people actually really thick?
2012-06-15 01:11:49
Valve paid these events to drop cs, obviously.
2012-06-15 01:15:49
How is that obvious, were you included in the discussions that come around which games are chosen for IEM and WCG? Are you included as a Sponsor of the event?

There are so many factors that come into this... wake up it's 2012, CS1.6 cannot, and I mean cannot keep going for ever. It was clear that IEM were going to drop it after the last event, as it looked like it was the last hurrah. And as soon as WCG went with the decision of going mobile only, that was a clear decision made by the sponsors (ie Samsung).

How does Valve who has very little influence into either tournament get put into this picture?
2012-06-15 01:21:50
CS:GO IS A SICK -'-
2012-06-15 01:12:54

Thats sad... What do we have left? Dreamhack?
2012-06-15 02:00:12
Gamegune and Dreamhack mb keeps on going for some another years (perhaps!).

e-Stars and ESWC didnt mentioned anything 100% (what ive seen) but most likley they're dropping CS 1.6 aswell for good after this year.

If CS:GO succeed with its mission 100%, CS 1.6 is done with the international scene to like 95% (?), i guess. Then only some "4fun"- LANs with minor cash-pools involved once in a while in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Ukraine, Poland and mb Russia, Finland, Spain, France, Balkan countries and so will be held, if so.

Cuz the truth is CS 1.6 is no longer supported by a wider global scene anymore, its been a pretty long time since TBH.
The very very most major part of todays yuoths which playing pc-games dont choose to get devoted with a game like CS 1.6. Its more or less like tetris for them, pixels'r bleeding in dats ''fresh* eyes.

2012-06-15 03:44:32
You intentionally troll the internet Lurppis with the Rakaka dirt sheets ? seriously i remember when you discredited them in interviews in 2005-2009 but now it's ok to source them in a HLTV article well done whiteboy!

Well looks like the 1.6 proscene is coming to an end.. Well it was great while it lasted. Hopefully cs:go will be a good game when it's finally published. I also really hope that old cs 1.6 and cs:source professionals will change to cs:go.
2012-06-15 07:28:36
dey wont leave cs 1.6
2012-06-15 09:28:19
How do you know that for sure. When cs:source came a lot of professional 1.6 players changed to source.
2012-06-15 10:28:01
not.
2012-06-15 16:22:27

2012-06-15 07:48:58
I never thought that WCG as organization and their managers and marketologists are so stupid. but don't worry guys!!!! when next season of IEM will be failed because of this decision, thay will again place cs 1.6 very fast.
2012-06-15 08:24:31
Believe me, IEM wont fail only because they dont feature CS 1.6

They will have SC2 and LoL which are followed by a lot of people, then, they can add maybe DotA 2, and there you go even mroe viewers, or maybe even CS GO..

It wasnt a rumour that WCG was dropping pc games for mobile, it was sent out as a press rls by mail. They changed their mind however since sponsors/partners where threatening of stepping out.
2012-06-15 10:20:03
well isnt WCG only headsponsor samsung? that was the reason why the wanted to change since samsung was releasing new mobile phone series till they realised there is no competitve gaming scene so they wanted to keep the old games and now wtf :D they struggle a lot

**1.6, is what sells more! no doubt!
**1.6, is the most difficult game because there is no perfection, even the best fail, it is very difficult.
**1.6 FOREVER !
