CPH Games female groups drawn

The Group draw for Copenhagen Games' female CS:GO tournament has been made, with the 11 participating teams having been drawn into two groups


Like in the male tournament, the female competition will use the GSL system in the group stage, with the top two seeded teams automatically progressing to the Upper Bracket semi-finals.

Group B looks very stacked on paper, with Epsilon having been paired in the same group as Bad Monkey Gaming, who are Zainab "zAAz" Turkie's new team, featuring three Swedish and two Spanish players.

Gawd, when HLTV post something about the female scene it always turns into a copy paste fest. So many comments that there shouldn't be a female tournament and women should be in the kitchen and talk about that women want equal rights. Talking about gaming is not physical so it shouldn't be separated. There are a few reasons, which were scientifically proven. Lets say that for one csgo girl player there is at least 50 boys. So obviously if one of the best girl teams, is up against 15-20 of the best male teams, likely they beat 2 of those teams in group stage is small. The female player pool is so much smaller, so the skill ceiling is going to be lower. Next to that, girls only have 2 official events a year: Copenhagen Games and ESWC. Can you not just relax a bit and support? Why wouldn't be a female tournament? Next to great entertainment which sponsors, viewers and companies love, the girls are able to fight each other on the battlefield instead of online practice. Some girls just like to play against other girls instead of playing against guys. There are many female teams, like the team I play for called Epsilon who play online tournaments, leagues and just practice against pretty good male teams. For example, we would love to be invited to the private male group on facebook to play against even better teams but since we are girls they don't take us seriously and reject our participation in this particular group. Next to playing against guys we also participate on events like Dreamhack which don't have a female tournament. And gues what, we made it to the 3/4th place in the BYOC in June last year and had a great match against Lemondogs. Anyway, there are more female teams who do the same. Please stop whining about female gaming, just accept it and make the scene a better and nicer place! and fu to all the tl;tr comments :P Peace out <3

Agree! En maak ons Dutchies proud :3

So what stops women for participating in leagues, signing up for cups etc so you can qualify for all the other LAN tournaments? Absolutely fucking nothing. The only thing that prevents females from reaching levels required for professional gaming are 1. Lack of dedication to learn and improve, lack of will to play and practice hard. Stems from the fact that women don't have to work for anything in their lives. 2. nothing else You are not being taken seriously because you don't play seriously. Why would anyone want to waste 1-2hours of their time scrimming you when it doesnt do anything for them and its highly unlikely you try to get anything out of that scrim.
2014-04-17 15:09
Have you even read what I said? Sure there are teams who don't play 'seriously' as you say but there are teams who do.
2014-04-18 13:58
Women arguing skills, pick 1 irrelevant point and focus on that while ignoring everything else. So what stops women who play seriously from participating in leagues, signing up for cups etc so you can qualify for all the other LAN tournaments and truly compete with the men? Absolutely fucking nothing. The only thing that prevents females from reaching levels required for professional gaming are 1. Lack of dedication to learn and improve, lack of will to play and practice hard. Stems from the fact that women don't have to work for anything in their lives. 2. nothing else

As I've posted before, a female tournament generates a further and different kind interest and promotion in eSports. Everyone hating on this thread is actually unintentionally supporting and validating the decision. Some of these girls are paving the way for more females to get into gaming. They wouldn't necessarily achieve the same level of exposure if they were hidden deep in the main draw. While eSports is still growing it's important to have big female profiles. And while the player pool if girls is quite low, we shouldn't be being so brutal towards them.
