Mad Catz Birmingham viewer's guide

You can now check out the complete schedule for Mad Catz Birmingham so that you do not miss out on a single match of this exciting tournament.

Organised by Esports Heaven, Mad Catz Birmingham will take place from April 5th to 7th inside the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) as part of the Gadget Show Live, a major technology and consumer expo.

Despite the fact that teams like Ninjas in Pyjamas and Virtus.pro will not be in attendance as they are in Kiev playing the SLTV StarSeries finals, there will be a number of quality sides in action in Birmingham, including VeryGames, Anexis, Western Wolves and fnatic.

The first two days are reserved for to the group stage, while Sunday will see the playoffs being played out. It is still unknown who will be streaming, but it is expected that there will be GO TV throughout the event, like it happened in Vienna last month.


Can VeryGames finally triumph abroad in CS:GO?

The group matches will be played in a best-of-one format, while the single-elimination playoffs will use a best-of-three format. The group winners will automatically progress to the semi-finals, while the runners-up and the third-placed sides will contest the remaining two places in the last-four stage.

if VG can finally triumph :D? I would rather say if WW could finally triumph. I dont consider VG to be on top2 of the world atm. i even see VP as a stronger team than them :)

NIP VP WW VG I would say. It's hard to say for sure which one is the better team of WW and VP imo, due to that VP has won a BO3 on lan whilst WW proceeded to the final with a BO1 win, which can be random.

WW is a better team overall - yet. They just need to learn how to adapt to 1.6 players playstyle proberly ;)

If you think about it, VP won 2 maps over WW and WW did the same, it just happend to matter more to win the last game as it was in the lower bracket. Those 2 teams are pretty equal atm if you ask me.

Between each other, yeah. But as you can see, VP just beat NIP, whilst WW never have come close to achieving that. So i would say that makes VP a better team :P
2013-04-06 13:35
i cant see anexis that well which is a shame i wanted them to win, they have a stand in 5th i believe as hughsy has work commitments ?

I wouldnt pick VG as second, they seem to disapoint everytime, and i have a feeling they wont do any better at this event. I might be wrong though.

2013-04-04 13:13
Why so early in the morning :/ 9 to 14 - on my days off I wake up around noon so I could get 1 or 2 games. I guess the center it is in requires them to be not playing later than maybe 14 or something. Also - Dreamteam !
