Regardless of earlier rumours of World E-Sports Masters 2012 including Counter-Strike 1.6, the event has announced StarCraft 2 and League of Legends as the only official titles.
World E-Sports Masters or WEM, formerly known as World E-Sports Games or WEG in the earlier seasons, has been supporting Counter-Strike 1.6 since its inaugural season in the beginning of 2005.
WEG started as a league lasting up to two months in Seoul, but as WEM was reduced to a week's length in China. Now due to a smaller amount of sponsor money, the event will be ran in three days and can only feature two game titles.
According to PCgames.cn, WEM organizers stated that due to many CS 1.6 teams retiring or switching to CS:GO, it would have been impossible to invite eight top teams for a season, which ultimately led to CS 1.6 not being included as a title.
so either cs:go or no more cs in big tourneys.my opinion:D
In GO you will not even recognize the moment when someone p90 you :D
WE ARE STILL ALIVE , JUST WAIT FOR HIM TO WIN IT :D
How smart, better remove CS1.6 from all tournaments games list so organisations will try to pay salaries for not playing games. HELLO?!

and as i said nobody cares about this. there is no 1.6 tournaments left no matters how many playing it.
tho case left.
1. cs:go will success. yay we got an FPS title.
2. cs:go will fail. no more FPS title. have fun with watching sc2, LoL, DotA2

CSS failed because it was a casualized version of 1.6, we have to avoid that with CS:GO or else it won't succeed. people wants a FPS game with a high skill ceiling, exactly like 1.6 is.

funny that both source and 1.6 got more players playing than csgo according to steam stats, and dont whine about that it's a new game.. when skyrim was released, it had around 200thousand players playing for a month after release, while csgo got less than 20000 players playing half a month after its release?? And dont whine that Skyrim had a bigger fanbase, you know 1.6 and source was two of the most popular fps games ever made! so the pro teams failed a bit when switching to csgo! csgo was one of if not the bigges fail by valve to this day! attack me grammar nazis!
ungrateful kids ...if a tournament decided to host your game for 5 years, then stop cus it's DEAd, i guess the tournament deserves your insults?

step two : ruined by global offensive.
valve is not uniting,what they were doing in the last few years is trying to make a easier game(more beginners to come)with better graphic quality(associate with hardware company for money).
technic is shit.if they provide high reward for Minesweeper.people will also come to "compete".
