because of the growth of cs go and the non-increased prizepool, CPH Games went from being a big event with alle the top tier teams, to a mid event

Then its a luck there is still alot of tier1 lans you could enter instead...
2015-03-04 00:59
They need to raise next year's prize pool.. can't be 26k for all years or else less teams will be interested.. Many companies are interested in organizing cs go tournaments now because how big it is & how huge it'll be, at least 50k which is totally fine!

CPH Games never had any prestige in 1.6, thats for sure. Maybe in source, where you were starved for decent tournaments xD
2015-03-04 00:02
teams don't give a fuck about that, according to rumours NiP demanded an all paid trip (hotel, travel etc) from CPH Games if they decided to show up.

Those are not rumours. The main dude from CPHG came out on Gaming.dk and told the Danish community that NiP demanded EVERYTHING if they were to attend.

why would they show tactics for lame 14k? they are not stupid. they know their value. if cphg cant deliver, nip wont deliver eighter. you want the big names? offer a big environment then. they will EASILY have 100k+ viewers, so not increasing the prize pool is purely pocketing money. 26k with 30k viewers 26k with 100k viewers sry, that doesnt match. not interested.

Prestige? lol you mean WCG, ESWC, IEM, Dreamhack... not Copenhagen Games xD

agreed, in this year everyone is stepping up prize pools except in majors but at least ESL is sponsoring the 250k for cologne themselves instead of taking valve $$

Well there's a huge difference between ESL and Danish eSports. We don't really get that much support now adays for Danish events. I think Denmark was the country of ALL countries just 2 years ago with the most events containing the best teams. You could easily attend 5-6 events and compete at the highest level, and still stay within Danish borders. Now adays, we only really got CPHG, due to all the support disappearing. Edit: 5-6 avents a year*

So what do you want me to say? that its not true that if you bet correct you can get more money than the team that wins the tournament? Cause its like this , if you bet flawless you will get more money. If you play flawless you will win the tournament. Its still a small prize pool.
2015-03-04 14:49
more tournaments the better hope CPH games can bring nice tourney would love to see double elimination BO3 upper bracket final with BO1 lower bracket :)

2015-03-04 11:55
I dont understand how the price pool keeps falling for almost every year. The mainly problem at this event, is that each team have to pay 800$ for renting PC's for the entire event. I truly understand why many teams skip this event, because of this. In addition to this, you ofcourse got the payment for the event entry as well 400$. And then you ofcourse got, a lot off other finances. So generally i would say it's a pretty expensive event. Anyways its a really great event and the environment is nice, cya there!
