WCG has announced a $40,000 prize purse as well as the groups for its Counter-Strike: Online tournament taking place in Kunshan, China on November 29-December 2.
World Cyber Games fell largely out of the spotlight when they announced their event would not feature Counter-Strike this year, although they later on added a side tournament in CS: Online.
They have now announced a massive $40,000 prize purse for the side tournament in the free-to-play micro-payment version of Counter-Strike, only available in certain parts of Asia.
With ten teams participating, the tournament will begin with two groups of five that will see the top two teams in each group advance to the single elimination best-of-three bracket.
|Group A||Group B|
The prize purse at World Cyber Games 2012 grand final in Kunshan is as follows:
HLTV.org will keep you updated with World Cyber Games 2012 although HLTVs will not be an option for the event, as CS: Online has no spectator client.

I don't know why europeans here hate this game so much . in my opinion this game still better than CS:S or CS:GO

Would have made sense if you had said "CS:O is bad? LOL, its still better than Source and CS:GO." Which on many levels actually makes sense.
so CSO is no that good when compared to GO,PROMOD and no even close to 1.6
I must say "again you" again..

That's why this tournament has CSO, and no other CS title.
cso uses a micropayment model similar to league of legends' so the developers do indeed make money from sales within the game.
you have no idea how people are selling their "maximum level"-character on CS:O ..
you have no idea of what "counter strike" has been here..
you have no idea...
I'd rather have no CSO than having to go to empty scrim server on 1.6.
there is just in a part of asia where CSO is played, that would be really more insteresting with all the players on the same game...
please don't CSO and CS:GO because is very bad
hope navi and fnatic will attend
CS:Online sucks, I'd never watched the match from this game even with professional CS 1.6 teams.
they take down project_kr(WMF) to win
korea CSO national qual. result
3~4. Lunatic-hai, ?????

For me WCG and their organisiers are retarded as f***.
Spraying is literally impossible. The bullets simply go into 'matrix' mode. Don't ask about tapping, you might as well bang your head against the wall and cut a horse penis while you're at it.
Another thing is the stupid rule where you can't use cl_minmodels 1 in tournament. Basically, in CSO, you're able to buy certain characters / models / weapons with real money. It's very annoying to play against people who buy the 'woman' character since the model has smaller head and smaller body shape than the regular 1.6 model. These models really make you miss your shots more.
Some models blend with the maps texture so well, for example on nuke outer side, that most of the times you barely spot them as you usually do in 1.6.
Either you're a casual or competitive gamer, this game is one big rip-off game that 'force' you to buy these useless things (like models, weapons, etc.) with real money.
The only good thing is the developer (Nexon) willing to put their money for tournament prize. But the GAME itself, is rubbish!
If you're still not convinced, just go to DH next week and ask any fnatic players directly.
