DreamHack has announced that the Valencia stop will feature Counter-Strike: Global Offensive instead of the planned CS 1.6 tournament.
Taking place next week at Feria Valencia, DreamHack Valencia was supposed to feature a 1.6 tournament with a €5,000 prize purse.
The organizers today announced that they have made the decision to switch to CS:GO, stating it is based on the low amount of signups. The tournament will still feature €5,000 in prizes, with the winning team taking home €2,500.
So far only three teams have signed up for the tournament. Spanish teams x6tence, DAMNATORUM and k1ck from Portugal, but all three will have to confirm themselves for the CS:GO tournament. The tournament is open to a total of eight teams.
In order to sign up for the tournament, every player must have purchased a BYOC pass. You must then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following info:
Name of the captain
Email of the captain
Email confirming the purchase of the BYOC passes
Name of the team
Nicks of the players
The tournament will be starting with a group stage, two groups of four teams playing best-of-one map, before moving on to the playoffs played best-of-three maps in a single elimination bracket.
Anyone got a list of the GO teams invited~?

1.6: 12 years as the main FPS eSport
CS:GO: can't have more than 30k playing at the same time.

b-b-but 1.6 will never die

clearly new comer/saucer.
don't post bullshit if you don't know the players.
As I told you before I've been playing CS since 1999. How old were you then?
I know way more about the CS scene than you will ever hope to, next time please try and make some sense or at least have some substance to your post.
At best a couple of decent mixes will attend this mess but hey, its still a bad game even if all pros are playing it for the money.
Please get yourself a life mate and stop thinking that you are better than other ppl because you play another version of the game.
You should really move on in ur life instead of starting arguments about that 1.6 had 70k viewers at IEM.
YOU are turning counter-strike to amateurist, because you are representing the community and you must be one of the most MAD persons on HLTV.org.
2: calling people 'sourcefag' makes you look like a compelte fucking moron. disable your internet until you learn to act your age.
his team wanted to partecipate to the event , and could have done it , and DH organizers said they don't accept his team , and then they give news that they have "low amount of teams" as a reason of their switch.
hopefully enjoying the game stays in there
A sad end to a story that DH organizers should have foreseen as they weren't apparently telling their stops what type of event they would organize.
they really could not anticipate earlier? this is a big shaft up the #rse of quite a few teams.
if u like as much 1.6, why dont u go there?
if everybody does as you are doing that's what the event switched to csgo
good for csgo, hope some teams will go there

look at k1ck's example, I've no idea if they've touched go or not but they already have their tickets and everything arranged in spain so they are somewhat 'forced' to take part.
if teams weren't told that this might happen it might give them some legal advantage over dreamhack's organisation
def not watching this anymore...any other 1.6 players pls do the same.
