:DDDD You made a funny!!!
I beg to differ. This is the only the beginning for CS:GO.
true story, true story
the end is near
you are happy for counter strike to die, to be happy that 1.6 was a better game. sad.
What gives you any indication that this tourny should be compared to IEMs?
13,000 for a standard LAN is pretty good considering its a new game.
Dump $100,000 into it and host it at an IEM on the mainstage where all the dota 2 and sc2 people are watching and I garentee youll get the same results as 1.6.
true true. CSGO very low numbers. 1.6 hall of famers
are u kidding me ? :DDDDDDDDDDDDD
IT IS NEW GAME OMG -.-
Na'Vi vs. VeryGames had way more viewers, and if Mad Catz wouldn't banned SLTV they would have even more viewers. I'm pretty sure CPH Games will have a lot of more viewers because Mad Catz is shame, not event.
Mad kittens don't reply me about "go make something similar" because I won't make it, that's ain't my job.
Also I can also garentee that 1.6 did not have 13,000 viewers in its 4th month of the game.
You are comparing the last huge lan of an ultra successful 13 year game to a fucking standard LAN in csgos fourth month.
Just fucking stupid if you ask me...
I think the numbers are low due to this event being complete and utter shit. Delays, laggy GOTV, GOTV going down nonstop, Heaven Media putting passwords on the GOTV servers etc etc..
When 1.6 had 100k+ views, nobody played MOBA games... Gamers Community needed new type of games.
I think it was a good tournament for CS:GO.
when did ever 1.6 have over 100k viewers?
not enough hype for competitive scene. because it is full of negativity, haters, fanboys. every new team with a potential is shouted down "noobs" "onliners" "cheaters" "saucers" "bla bla bla" and not enough lowskilled foundation for a popular top scene. time to help the bottom of the scene grow.
Because of the streaming conditions and the delay we had over 20k during the tournament ^_^
"1.6 will be remembered as the most successful team fps game on PC, ever."
That's it boys, the truth has been told, lets stop playing fps's now we can't beat another game!!!!
I still want a fucking good CS 1.6 comeback.
cs:go sucks i dont even play it 1.6 4ever. if i say it enough times csgo will die and all will play 1.6 again also I will become 14 years old again and excited for gaming!!!
Because that is the real cause of cs:go and sauce hate, that we are getting old and bitter and cannot enjoy games, just hate on everyone except our favourite 1.6 team.
why? fps games are shit on console. pretty much everything is shit to play on console beside racing, sport or other fun games like gta.
The problem isn't better hardware, is the continuous releases of bad software.
yes csgo has 13k viewers so what about emotion? is there any memorable scene so far?
the point of this thread is...?
go away you boring fuck
had 22k during navi vs nfaculty but of course we werent gona get higher than that the stream has been awful
nip vs navi in the final would had alot more views
Over 15k viewers in one stream. Around 21k during the day max right next to LOL in Twitch. They had network problems with their venue so that lost them alot of viewers during the day.
Na'vi VG was like 25k. I'm pretty sure that if VG won against anexis and faced NiP, numbers would have been at least 20-25k too. It's just that noone is interested in watching a bunch of danish nonamers who just played the event of their life being demolished by the swedes.
Don't forget that the stream was very poor quality too. Put redeye, JoeM and threat instead of those two guys (who did what they could with pretty much no sleep), and a VG-NiP duel at 6pm CET (10pm is way too late to start a final) and you have your 30k (minimum)
some time ago they were writing "only 5k viewers, cs go isnt even in top10 steam games", now they are writing "only 13k viewers", in near future they will write "50k viewers, cs go is a future!"
number of people playing cs go and watching cs go matches is still rising, deal with that. if you dont want to have something in common with cs go just dont visit this site, it will be better for all of us
Yesterday there were 20k spectators. Then
1. Unofficial streams were shut down
2. GOTV started crashing, lagging and so forth
Why do people still hate on CSGO when there is no other alternative?
the match playing time is sleeping time in china ....................
+2150 viewers on VaKarM as well (dailymotion in france)
Good improvement, nice :)
really its a low number? I have the feeling that the numbers are growing please correct me if I'm wrong!
In Brazil FALLEN doing a camp for cs 1.6 @ net for fans of the game!
cs 1.6 <33333
i hate csgo but i think this is just the beginning of the csgo and tour ...
Before they shut down the 3rd party streams on the first day there were 25k across Twitch and Dailymotion... fucking children. 13k (on Twitch) watched the finals because it was NiP vs Anexis FFS. No top team to contend against NiP.
If GO dies competitively at least you can watch that sweet COD:BO2 tourney that's coming up, right? Maybe some sick Shootmania.
Idiot! Why would ps4 destroy computer FPS? Playstation is not a console made for e-Sports, not today and not tomorrow, not ever. The only console that is competitive is xbox and will always stay that way.
25k for Navi vs VG.
Why the fk should anyone here care that it was not 30k or 100k it was possibly one of the CS matches on any iteration of the franchise...ever.
Quite confident a Navi vs ESC final would have pushed 30k.
Hard to say Madcats in Vienna has the same draw as a Dreamhack or larger lan. The fact it was CSGO's highest viewed LAN is a testament to the games growth.
no more glory days of 1.6 hitting 100K+ viewers
share your time machine please.
The streams and no access to GOTV for the latter part of the tournament kinda ruined Mad Catz for alot of people I think. The tournament everyone is talking about is Copenhagen Games. I think we will see a huge response from the whole csgo scene to all critics at that event. It won't be 100k spectators as the biggest CPL events pulled, but that it will be a huge leap from the 8k that watched todays final, I have no doubt. Hopefully the scene will show itself from the best possible perspective and hook in more players, spectators and hopefully sponsors.
yeah all 1.6 small events had 100 000+ viewers, SURE.
The event ifself was shit so thats the main reason why it wasnt as many viewers as dreamhack for example. Its been out 7 months and they game is still growning and 1.6 (1.5) didnt become what it was in 7 months it took 3-4 years.
sl4m = 20 000 visitors
comeback slammmmmmmm ;(
In the overtime period between vg and navi it was 18k viewers watching on stream and 2000 on hltv =20k. In terms of csgo's popularity and viewer counts it is already on the level of the cgs prime css period, which is pretty good for a 4 months game. Maybe it will never be on the level of 1.6 but it will be twice the size of css for sure
i didnt watch it because of all the steam problems and delay of the games .. im sure there is more ppl like me .. + they shutdown evrey other stream that is not "FACEIT" only sl4m=10K-12K and the gotv was locked ..
The main problem, that it's a pain to watch this terrible game.
I tried, and it's very boring, idiot movements, stupid maps, my stomach is too weak for it.
Stream was shit too.
The only good thing about this event was Threat.
NiP won again too, boring.
stream was ok for me, had it at 720p, but when the lagg started hitting hard, i just turned quality down to 480p which was still watchable. 13k views is still a lot of people watching one single event. stay positive ;)
The game just isn't fun to watch (or play). It isn't new or exciting, it's just a shit copy of a classic game.
Dude the era of shooter is over, games like DotA or LoL are popular atm... So dont try to make a different between the year 2006 and 2013, because other games are in the main stage. You cant get the same Viewer numbers anymore, because everyone play Dota2 or LoL.
group stages were watched by almost 19k spectators on face ittv and sl4m.
it was 13k on facit, and lot more all combined, and the tournament had big problems with delays so probably it would be a lot larger number :D
LoL it strikes 200k viewers :D more than CS : GO !!!
hey guyz i think cs go dead never reach 1.6 numbers!! i remember wen navi pld against fnatic 2001 it had 420.000 viewers in stream and then 80.000 in hltv!!!! it was gr8 game i remember it was 21 over times ended 75-79 the final esl!
gg csgo (cs:noob huehuehue)!!!!!
lets see.. i think it will increase with all these upcoming tournaments.
i have watched wcg match final with 4-5-6-7 hltv ips, because of the overload! and there was 40k on every hltv ip 1.6 1.6 1.6!
Thats the reason why IEM wont pick up CS:GO. Its just not big enough
Stopped reading right there. Mad 1.6 fanboys cant get over it there there is no 1.6 anymore.
just get over fact there is CSGO, 1.6 is dead, never will be back, a nobody gives a shit what it was in "old times".
didn't even watch the final because i was pretty sure nip would've won that anyway.
The problem with GO is low entertainment in duels. The only excitement comes from important rounds, not the actual shooting. In 1.6 the excitement came from every aspect of the game
yeah it's pretty dead.
hltv should look into covering more games (not LoL). DoTA2 and SC2 maybe shootmania but that game is pretty bad.
25k watched in at the highest peak almost as much as gamegune 2012 1.6 had ahurehaueeuahuer
that's because you could learn something new from 1.6 matches, be it strafing,peeking,shooting ,at the beginning of cs, 'till the nades,starts etc later on. csgo is the same as source,nothing new. same maps,with retarded movement,different recoil and re-balanced guns.... as fiflaren said the teams which are just randomly moving around killing are as effective as teams which have pre-made starts which means that the game is more random than 1.6 and therefore it's less competitive and less interesting to watch.
people want to watch a game with more skill and strategy.
wow 13k ppl still watching this shit game ...
Counter-Strike is finished.
OMG CS:GO IS SHIT, 13K KIDS
Personally I just switched over to the German/Russian/French streams, as it often was more stable than the FaceIT stream, but that could be a Twitch issue, which is notorious for being the suck in Europe :).
When I gave it a try, I found the FaceIT stream utterly disappointing, I get that they wanted to use the studio in Milan, but it had no added value in comparison to a shitty webcam used on site. They couldn't join the servers as spectators, which meant they had to put up with the crappy gotv configs used. I know they tried to get a VPN to Vienna, but regrettably failed at setting it up, it happens, technological problems are easy to arise and most of the time difficult to fix.
There were no replays during the reviews of the games, no interviews, no imagefeed from the lan itself. If u can't deliver these, you're already inferior to SC2 & Moba tournament streams. I don't even play Dota2 & SC2 and love watching the tournaments, due to the added value they provide next to the games.
Lack of these features was probably due to the limitation of the internet connection used on site, but that could have easily been arranged beforehand.
Future: I have high hopes Copenhagen Games will deliver bigger & better, last year was awesome to follow, surely they'll get 20k+ viewers. As the game progresses it will become more exciting, Madcatz was a good example of how it's evolving, the overall playing field got better, matches were more tense and skill/tactics got to a whole new level. Not where it should be, but it's slowly getting there. Now to hope the scene doesn't die out before we have reached that pinaccle :D.
well no surprise about the numbers , when I used to watch cs1.6 it gave me emotions it was a hell of excitement watching for e.g SK vs NAVI , now when I see cs:go matches I feel like WTF is this shit?
Watched a NiP match just 5 minutes 3 months ago or so , didn`t like it and pulled out , have never watched a game anymore , that`s what the majority have done.
Who cares. The professional scene ruined the game on their own. So again, who care about them anymore?
a competitive game should have a very good competitive matchmaking, and csgo has not
I don't watch csgo tournaments because it isn't interesting or exciting. On top of that NiP wins every tournament which makes it even more boring. I rather watch a movie or play 1.6. :/ It was so much more fun watching exciting matches in 1.6.
I have tried watching CS:GO frag movies as well as streams. I did not really like the "feel" of the game to be honest.
For example, just compare a headshot frag in CS 1.6 with a headshot frag in CS:GO. Both are sooooo different. The CS 1.6 headshot really looks like a proper headshot in comparison to the floating/gliding headshot of the CS:GO.
Some people wont agree, whereas some people might not really understand what i just wrote. LOL
People must get used to the fact that FPS-Games are dying, people no longer like paying for games when there are ones that are for free and are much easier to learn.
13k viewers is a good start for csgo, these days even if the legendary fnatic played the legendary NoA there wont be as much as viewers.
consoles are for obvious reasons have always killed PC Games.
people zerg are noobs
they dont like games where they die all day long
they like stupid games like s2 or dota2/lol
in FPS you need to aim and normal people dont know how to aim so they dont play it
sad but true
rip cs 1.6... We will miss ur amazing lan tournaments and amazing esports moments, what u have given to us ;( Hope that we will see some big lan tournaments in csgo too !
