Copenhagen Games viewer's guide

As Copenhagen Games are closing in, starting on Thursday, March 28th, we bring you the viewer's guide for both male and female tournaments, which will hand out a staggering prize of €40,000 in total.

Taking place at the Øksnehallen exhibition centre, Copenhagen Games is one of the most loaded events. As it is hosting eight different tournaments in six different games, the schedule for the whole event is filled up with information.

Our concern are the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournaments only and for the first time after ESWC 2012, there will be both a male and a female tournament running.


hiko & co have a chance to prove themselves once again

If it's like last year it was like this: top2 from group goes into a 32team tourney where 16 will qualify for the main tournament. And I think it's bo3 all the way.

50k might be too much to expect considering CS:GO has approx 25-30k players at peak.
2013-03-27 20:03
50k is way more than what SC2 had at IEM..

Highest peak during last day was about 145k (only sc2 stream, Blue and Red stream during final)
2013-03-28 02:58
not a true there was a 130-140K most of the time. I saw 150k+ in flash games. And after MLG blizzard reported in article on battlenet that ther was 157K peak. And i guess that theyve had pretty accurate numbers. us.blizzard.com/en-us/company/press/pres..
2013-03-28 09:32
source? we need 75k just to get TO the IEM its now or never
2013-03-27 20:14
keep dreaming
2013-03-28 01:36
too bad its byoc...other than that the tourny is looking amazing. I just think that for a lan all players should be playing on same comps/monitors, only cuz not all players have the luxury of playing with top of the line comps...even tho they are considered 'pros'
2013-03-28 02:14
So I guess every tomorrows qualifier will have GOTV?
2013-03-27 20:06
no 31 final ?
2013-03-27 20:10
See you there guys! :)
2013-03-27 20:12

2013-03-27 20:13
Finals at 00.00 CET and 03.30 IST :( WTF? Can't expect 75k for sure even if all the NA viewers tune up..
2013-03-27 20:21
23:00 Male grand final on stage -.-' bb
2013-03-27 20:38
