CS:GO to become DH's main game

All DreamHack events in 2015 will feature CS:GO as a main game, HLTV.org has learned.

So far, CS:GO has had limited exposure in DreamHack's world circuit, with the game having been left of out of a number of events that take place in several countries throughout the year.

However, a source inside DreamHack has told HLTV.org that CS:GO will replace Starcraft 2 as the main game for the 2015 event circuit, which means full production and main stage privileges in all tournaments.

CS:GO will play a much bigger role in DH's circuit

Right now, there are six DreamHack events listed for 2015, starting with the Romanian stop in Bucharest, from April 24-26, but more are expected to be announced in the coming months.

Below you can find the list with all the DreamHack events that have so far been announced for 2015: 

DreamHack Masters Bucharest 2015 – 24-26 April 2015

Is that good? Edit: alright that's real good but couldn't care less about the main stage, just want great games.
2014-12-15 13:19
Main stage always means great games. Even when they make a lot of mistakes, the tension is epic. It's very good!

Hell na, TI4 finals were the worst shit I've seen.

2014-12-15 13:58
True, the chinese were too stronk and EU teams were choking
2014-12-15 14:02
+1, ti4 was shit
2014-12-15 17:02
TI4 was only shit because of the patch they played on. It allowed for 5 man deathballs at level 6, which any team could do and be good. Prime example, Team Newbie that won TI4, became fucking terrible as soon as they patch changed.

Yes yey yes jaja understood yes OFC and the HEADSHOTS dear god uh the patch yes
2014-12-15 21:51
It's like saying TI3 should've been 1sided because of the ratdota Alliance but Na`Vi figured them out in the end. Edit: the team didn't get shit itself, they aren't motivated after winning so much + they're still really good, it's just that chinese are all really strong.
2014-12-15 22:19
thats called the Meta ! PLay it or suffer it
2014-12-16 04:33
Valve pls care more about South East Asia
2014-12-15 13:38
they can care all they want but asian cs players are nowhere near the skill level of teams like vox eminor
2014-12-15 13:51
2014-12-15 16:33
mostly due to cs not being such a popular game in asia , although i bet it will blow up once its F2P which it will soon be (i imagine)
2014-12-15 16:42
if they can't even afford the game. do u think they can afford the skills? look at dota2...other than china(largest contributor to the international prize pool) the rest can be ignored. just tie a deal with distribution in china... valve will make more out of china than anywhere else.
2014-12-15 16:53
im pretty damn sure league and dota wouldnt be as popular in china and korea if those games would cost money, seriously as long as you dont need a beast pc and the game is free it WILL be played to death in asia
2014-12-15 17:01
i don t even get why it still costs 12 euros, even less I bought it for 3€ on a sale about 6 months ago. As if Valve gives a fuck about 3 € Make it cheep at least for asian countries or i don t know.
2014-12-15 19:27
ya its largely the f2p lan centers would play csgo but they only ply f2p so when the cafe's get it f2p it's going to go huge in Asia as lan centers are so big there.

Don't say they can't compete in CS because that's just untrue historically.

Because Romania, with 2 DH's on the schedule is a well known bastion of CS skill???

2014-12-15 15:07
How the heck can Valve do anything for you? :0 Do you have mediocre servers or do you feel discriminated because of no Asians in the game? :D
2014-12-15 15:58
+1, pls Valve
2014-12-15 16:26
Asia is all about starcraft, dota and lol. Valve gives them enough money considering the prize pools of tournaments like the international.
2014-12-15 19:24
It's extremely good for CS:GO and the CS:GO pro scene, because it means more exposure, which means more viewers, which means more sponsors, which means more money, etc...
2014-12-15 13:42
which means even more fucks will be tempted to cheat, etc.
2014-12-15 13:45
Which means Valve and tournaments will be forced to use drastic anti-cheat measures. DHW was good in that sense, but no enough, they need to forbid players to bring their own gear. Then they have two solutions, either provide very high quality gear, the same for everyone, or buy every item on demand from the players.
2014-12-15 13:49
The PC's had no permissions at all... So nothing can happen even if there is a cheat loaded storage drive in the peripherals.
2014-12-15 16:00
The PC needs to access the firmware of the peripheral, so the user needs at least those permissions, once it's done, a skilled dev can surely forge a cheat that can execute itself from there. That's a long shot, sure, but it would be best if players wouldn't be allowed to bring their own USB-plugged gear. It's a useless risk. Headsets with jack plugs are fine.
2014-12-15 16:35
Hell no it doesn't need the firmware permissions, because most keyboards and mice will just run fine and I think the players can use their keyboards without extra macros. And idk what a skilled dev is for you, but how is he supposed to do anything at all when they just download the firmware from the official website of the peripheral maker?
2014-12-15 22:22
Nothing is completely secured in IT, absolutely nothing. Allowing foreign peripherals on a system is basically leaving the key under the doormat: It's not very safe, and it can be avoided easily (for big events, that is).
2014-12-15 22:35
That is very good. Production value is what this is all about. The last DH had the best production value I have seen for CSGO
2014-12-16 11:42
Best production will be when the guy observing will be giving us frags instead of focusing on the game himself.

It's about time...SC2 died a long time ago. All we see is the same builds over and over again and only 1v1s. Boring stuff -- I'm really surprised this didn't happen 1-2 years ago.
2014-12-15 13:23
and CS isnt repetitive? Give me a break lol, SC2 isnt as dynamic as BW was but its still the hardest game out of all the major esports games.
2014-12-15 13:30
Sweden kka96 
The reason i still play CS after all these years is because there's always new things, or different things to experience. Ofc the feeling of making a clutch for your team is a strong factor as well :D But CS is not repetitive. As with SC2 I do like the game, I'm bad at it but it's fun to watch. Sad that they remove it. But it's a dying game since it's too hard to learn.
2014-12-15 13:36
All things are repetitive to a degree, and while I love both CS and SC, I understand why games like LoL and CS have grown so much. It comes down to the 95 percent of the people who post on this site, aka the Casuals. Starcraft its extremely hard to have a casual base because the game is so demanding especially with amount of time that requires to even be decent for your region. People forget CS was a dying game too if it was not for skins then the game we all love might of been a distant memory.
2014-12-15 13:41
Sweden kka96 
Indeed. I've played a few games in SC, and I still play agaisnt bots because it's not as fun (in the beginning). It's, as you said, not a casual game. Either you play it full time or not at all. CS have always had Gungames, zombiemod etc to attract younger players and with the introduction of MM people play more 5v5. The level of skill lowers but the amount of players and money in the game increases. The skins are a big part of the popularity, but I think MM is the major part why GO have gotten so big.
2014-12-15 13:44
And I'm so happy for CS because I have been playing diff versions for more then 10 years. I just hope that legacy of the void can bring back what sc2 is missing and what broodwar had as far as dynamic battles. Starcraft is a great spectator esport, Where it will never get 100k+ viewership consistently and I understand that but I just hope it dont die out completely because CS and SC is the two games I really enjoy watching and have always enjoyed watching I'd hate to see either of them die out. The good news is that it doesnt look like CS will ever die with how things have progressed so rapidly over the last year and a half.
2014-12-15 13:48
Sweden kka96 
haha, yeah. When I started to play CSGO it was like 15-20 K in the world. Now there's a bit more ;) Agreed, SC and CS are the best games to watch. But with the removal of maps like Train and the overall CT-sided games makes it pretty boring. There's also very few teams who get the chance to become pro, we've hade like the same 50 players now i 2 years.
2014-12-15 13:51
yes, with a 'world wide' pro scene more teams need represented, with bigger tournaments. ANYTHING that's not single DQ for a qualifier, anything less then a loser's bracket, or best of three, or hell, both, is a joke. It leads to these teams that cant handle major's getting there and just falling flat in groups(Lets face it, smaller known teams kind of have a edge since EVERYONE doesn't know their tactics, so as long as they don't suck they can put up a good fight). While teams that fall flat in the qualifies(Which are online with fake lag ffs) could possibly take down the big guys. What I'm saying is, they should probably have a international gig, with regional qualifies that are LANS, as a 'murican i'd use four region qualifies in the u.s. Then maybe have the top 4-5 from each of those in a national qualifies, with the top 4-5 teams of the nation move on to the international event. I know I'm using a larger country, maybe some don't need as many qualifying events, but with the spot light growing on the game it's very sad to see it not growing on the players putting the hard work into becoming pro.
2014-12-15 23:05
Sweden kka96 
Yeah, agreed. It's so hard to go pro because you don't really know what to do. Forest once said that "If you want to go pro you need a lot of luck and meed the right people". With more LAN's in every country it'll be easier to acknowledge new good players/teams, even though you wont win more then a few 100 bucks on these teams. Ofc the next majors and bigger LAN's should have LAN-qualification. It's just logical to put the pro's on LAN since Online is so random.
2014-12-16 09:53
If only South Africa had a pro team -_-. There are very talented players with amazing aim, but the teamwork is just... Not good enough, I actually cannot see what South African teams do differently to the EU teams even after watching many demos :/
2014-12-17 10:30
Denmark AndersR 
I actually think we're at a point where e-sports as a whole can sustain 4 major games, I don't see SC dying out, it'll probably just be the smaller of 4 big ones.
2014-12-15 21:59
While I'm not a fan of SC, I don't see why it'd 'die out'. It's by far still the most popular game of Asia.
2014-12-15 23:07
Sweden kka96 
Well. SC is dying because it's too hard. Easy as that.
2014-12-16 09:54
tru. learning curve is waaaaay toooo steeep + skill ceiling is waaaaayyy tooo high to actually have some fun playing the game.

You are right, i got into CS:GO once i found out about MM and how you get a rank, that kept me playing because i wanted to get as high as possible :D. That made me stop playing LoL and CoD.

would i play csgo if there wasn't skins? no. was from css, played csgo when it first came out. less than 1hour i'm like fuck this shit. only came back after seeing all the skins and etc.
2014-12-15 16:56
true that, but the worst was the movement and recoil of the weapons it fucked me up so hard, i quited in the first ten minutes of cs go
2014-12-15 19:31
I only played source because of friends that played it, otherwise it was a joke and is why it was the death of the comp scene. No one took it seriously, which is why LDLC was pretty much made fun of intill they showed they could hold their own. It's also why 1.6 was still the main tournament game intill GO. Source had HUGE hit boxes, i mean, seriously, it was way too easy. But still, yea, skins attract most of the kids, along with 'betting' so they can feel cool. But a lot of the grassroot community came to GO, which was a relief since they all hated source, which was mostly a louzy port to a new engine to promote it. Although killing someone with a flashbang was pretty cool.
2014-12-15 23:09
At the beginning SC2 was the biggest esport, then MLG, GSL decided to only make pay2watch content and killed the game. I remember these huge fail events whit 4 streams and stuff, and mlg never being able to provide a single clean stream. True story.
2014-12-15 14:24

haha. pay2watch <3 Karma bites their asses.
2014-12-15 14:47
"The reason i still play CS after all these years is because there's always new things, or different things to experience." With your low learning curve and IQ maybe yea..

2014-12-15 17:54
Only an idiot would say SC2 is not the most complex eSport, but there's no such thing as like a rock/paper/scissors scenario or stagnation in terms of CS play. Tennis is like the most repetitive shit ever on the face of it, but it's pretty cool to watch and no match is ever really the same. CS is quite a bit broader than tennis as well given range of weapons/maps etc. It's not really possible for a game like CS to stagnate. However, strategy games like SC2 can easily become predictable if the meta doesn't keep shifting and adapting.

6 DreamHack events which means 6 more events for CSGO. 2015 will be huge.
2014-12-15 13:29
sick, lets hope teams won't be skipping the majority
2014-12-15 13:29
good anti hack system is what we need. before this kind of exposure.
2014-12-15 13:30
people are always complaining without knowing the full story. in the last patch valve made the biggest anti-cheat update theyve done in a long time, making cheats like the one KQLY was using, impossible to use. you can no longer make cheats that force bullets onto anyone, which was possible before and resulted in crazy rage hacking that youve probably seen. if you ever get killed by a cheater from now on, all he can have used is wh or simple aimbot/triggerbot. this is a huge step imo.
2014-12-15 16:26
So you haven't seen the new bunnyjumping with the back turned, freezing mid air to headshot, spinhacking, crazy aimbot, overwatch undetectable hack that is out atm? I met 2 guys the other night.. Oh cheat is back my friend. it came back stronger -_-
2014-12-15 17:18
When there's a game, there is cheaters. When there is money involved, they get more serious. It happens in all sports, and will be dealt with accordingly as it's uncovered, and that's all you can hope. Cheating is NEVER truly defeated.
2014-12-15 23:13
What about an International for CS:GO? 10 million $ prize pool sounds sweet. :P
2014-12-15 13:30
? you do realise the 10mill$ prizepool was actually the money of the community rather than VALVE putting money in directly ( well they did start with like 2,7mill i think ) There is no way in any scenario the current way cs:go league support is there will be a compendium for a csgo international. There are no ingame tickets for any leagues whatsoever like in dota2
2014-12-15 13:36
Sweden kka96 
I wouldn't want an international. Maybe have the price increased and 4 majors/year. Like 500 K maybe 4 times a year. More to watch and more opportunities for new teams etc.
2014-12-15 13:38
still think there should be the ultimate major esque tournament like TI. Something that means everything every year. Ok lets say you win a major in Novemember, you're relevant until the next major in a couple of months. If you win the international, you are relevant for the entire year.
2014-12-15 13:46
Sweden kka96 
What do you mean with "relevant" ?
2014-12-15 13:48
If you work really hard, practice and train, winning a TI would mean you are the champion of the year. Doing the same and winning Dreamhack winter means you're the champion of 3/4 months with a considerably smaller prizepool. I'd say the TI has a much bigger incentive on teams to put in more time. puu.sh/dvB7a/84d4b3167e.png Even a top8 finish guarantees a lot more than the winner of DHW. The fact dota2 still has other majors just says one thing. a TI and other majors can coexist.
2014-12-15 13:53
Sweden kka96 
Indeed. As long as they coexist it's fine. But if I had to chose between them I'd chose smaller events.
2014-12-15 14:48
Yeah it would be cool if at the end of the year there was a premier major, but imo although TI is good for me as a casual DotA spectator to watch - only one tournament a year - I think it overall isn't such a healthy idea for the scene. Why do you think it's good for a single team to be relevant for the entire year? Given the variance behind which team will win compared to being successful over the entire year, it is grossly unfair. Winning TI nets you more money than if you won every single other tournament combined. It renders other major leagues - really competitive leagues too - as bit-players, simply because they can't fund an obscene prize pool. Winning TI gives you an undeserved reputation in relation to the actual level of competition involved in the tournament. Alliance won in 2013 and they are super well known because of it, but in reality they have achieved essentially nothing since then. The CS:GO system is much fairer and better for viewers because we have several "top" tournaments a year which act as bellwethers as to who are top teams at the time. How much better would it be if there were 3x 2million $ DotA tourneys and 1x 4million $ tourney at the end of the year?
2014-12-15 16:27
rat dota only worked for a certain time, then ppl got used to being more patient and then rat doto got nerfed as well
2014-12-15 16:30
Yeah well that really only proves my point. Winning TI gives you an undeserved reputation in relation to how competitive the format really is. No reason to emulate that formula. TI puts all the prizemoney in one basket, but it is fairer and better for viewers to split one gigantic tournament into 3-4 huge tournaments. Even 1/4 of the prizepool of TI is still many times over the prizepool of other majors like Starladder.
2014-12-15 16:33
The tickets weren't there in the beginning for dota 2 too. Really valve is just lazy and refuses to add it for CSGO (or any other important feature found in dota 2)
2014-12-15 13:55
+1 my thought exactly, that would help csgo tournaments a shit ton more than stickers Not only that, add ingame tickets for EVERY tournament and make match drops like in dota2. There. you will have the incentive to buy tickets
2014-12-15 13:56
What are you trying to say? Pretty unclear/bad English. Ingame tickets for any leagues? What? Is that supposed to be Engelando? If you're trying to say there is no way CS community could raise 9$ mill, you're wrong. If Valve just gave us a fucking international with some compendium (or especially if they gave skins) to crowdfund the price pool, it would be the biggest price pool in esports history. Fucking Dota kids are mostly poor people from Eastern Europe/Asia without money to spend. Meanwhile, CS community is full of Western people with money to spend and a love for skins that is beyond what we've seen with any other game before. I know plenty of people from both communities.
2014-12-15 16:31
+1 you get it
2014-12-15 18:04
Volvo could host a major any other week with all the market transactions and key sales. so a 10Mio pricepool shouldn't be a problem at all.
2014-12-15 16:53
the difference is volvo don't want to be an unsustainable company like RIOT/Blizzard and keep pumping their own money too keep the game alive. They'd rather let the money of the community to save it, which isn't market transactions. Key sales yes, that's what funds dreamhack anyway.
2014-12-15 17:18
international is bad for csgo. rather have 4 majors...maybe 5 or 6 max. this is better for the scene. potentially spreading the prize pool and income and exposure.

the facts are dh let cheaters cheat, they do nothing to secure events. get a brain
2014-12-15 17:40
holy fucking shit dude you are a complete retard. I've only seen completely baseless comments from your side. They did alot to prevent cheating :)
2014-12-15 17:56
yeah, took 1 phone away even without checking if a player has another, lol. you could still cheat by: -eye contact with your men in the crowd -electronical devices strap to your body -installing cheats (aim assist) by plugging your mouse/keyboard -modified headphones so use your brain idiot
2014-12-15 18:39
everyone uses the same headphones i think, and most of those things are really hard to do anything about
2014-12-15 19:18
only for idiots like you. koreans have been doing secured events for years -one way mirrors -metal detectors -provided/checked gear done, 100% secured

I think it's the first DH in France? I'm curious what kind of event they'll host, let's hope it's better than ESWC... Also, I wonder why two DHs are in Romania, we need one on another continent.
2014-12-15 13:46
Good news <3 Hope CS:GO will keep growing.

2014-12-15 14:24
Wow nice, hopefully they'll think things through before these events. In case anyone from Dreamhack is reading this I have a question: What were you thinking when you decided to play the final on DHW14 in a place with less seats than last year even though CSGO is like 3-4 times bigger now?
2014-12-15 14:26
Its happening =)

Hopefully sometime soon csgo takes the spotlight back. So sick of shitty mobas. Need the cs / quake3 days back. Also Riot is more disgusting than CGS was and CGS made me want to throw up for days. No EC servers, shitty f2p system, not sharing their game with long standing esports events ( when they do its like joke exhibitions), very little competitive integrity, advertising a league that's inferior skill wise and having 2 international tournaments a year to help hide it. Not to mention preventing Koreans from coming to the NA as full teams etc. Etc. The most disgusting "hidden marketing" I've seen in 16 years of being around competitive gaming. Cannot wait for this game to die.
2014-12-15 15:09
Hopefully we see less online tournaments next year and organisations who would normally host a 1-5k online tournament can instead put that money into the prizepool/cost of a lan tournament.
2014-12-15 15:10
I'd explain you why Online tournaments are important and why they can't go LAN YET! But the wall of text would be ridiculously long...
2014-12-15 19:42

2014-12-15 20:59
waiting for Dreamhack Lithuania
2014-12-15 15:12
Dreamhack France already will include Trackmania, please add it to DHW too! One of the best games to follow with CSGO!
2014-12-15 15:12
DreamHack is probably one of the few organizations that kept Counter-Strike throughout the years in their game titles (ESWC the other) Respect for them.
2014-12-15 15:18
+1 and arbalet cups too
2014-12-15 15:21
great news to the csgo community , more exposure , more players and more stability to the teams as well
2014-12-15 15:19

Please admins close the forum during that event. This community is a goddamn embarrassment to the game.

good stuff
2014-12-15 17:06
this is just to get major titles from Valve.
2014-12-15 17:13
Like they wouldn't get it otherwise.
2014-12-15 17:33
they almost lost after the incident happened in overpass between LDLC vs Fnatic. it's better to give it to ESEA.
2014-12-15 20:24
hah, according to..? They obviously didn't. It's not their fault Valve can't make maps properly, and the rest of the event pretty much went perfectly fine.
2014-12-15 20:45
perfect? Venue was smaller, Crowd sucked & EIZO monitors sucked, dude take a look at Katowice once then just compare it to DH, Katowice was the best. And about the incident, DH couldn't make decision for 7hours lol so that says all.
2014-12-16 05:04
Katowice was better, but DH was definitely better than Cologne.
2014-12-16 18:05
one doesn't simply compares Cologne and DHW2k14. :/

2014-12-15 17:58
I think we're going to end up with far more tournaments in 2015 than the top teams can actually play... which may be a good thing as events attended by mostly t2 teams will naturally give the better ones a chance to rise to the top. CS:GO needs more top teams considering the activity level of the scene.

Please get CS:GO popular in Asia. This is GLOBAL Offensive! We need everyone.
2014-12-16 01:47
It's being prevented by crazy governments and laws in Asian countries. Like in S. Korea and China.
2014-12-16 04:08
in my point of view, csgo is very popular in indonesia, india, malaysia, singapore, china.
2014-12-16 20:40
Not gonna happen, atleast in S. Korea. SC2 and LoL too popular there.
2014-12-17 11:49
I can't wait! DH Cluj-Napoca!!! <3
2014-12-16 04:06
for every one talking about asian players unskilled well the truth is in cs 1.5 and 1.6 the asian you talk about they creat tactics in the game go back and watch team wemadefox (korea) and see what they did in cs youtube.com/watch?v=av1NKDmFjZQ
