Secret beat CLG to win CPH Games

Team Secret have won Copenhagen Games' female tournament after breezing past CLG Red in the grand final (16-1 on Mirage, 16-5 on Cobblestone).

Eighteen of the world's strongest female teams gathered in Copenhagen to compete for their share of a €7,000 prize pool in the Danish tournament - one of the most prestigious in the scene.

The group stage went according to script as all of the favourites managed to progress to the knockout stages without too much trouble.


vilga & co win CPH Games

That same trend continued in the playoffs, with Team Secret and CLG Red - the two favourites heading into the event - both making it to the grand final. In CLG's case, however, they were made to work hard to reach the title decider by a stubborn Millenium side, who won the first map of the series before letting the North Americans complete a reverse sweep.

Those expecting to see a highly-contested match between Team Secret and CLG Red were certainly left disappointed as the former WRTP side repeated their Intel Challenge Katowice victory, this time dropping just six rounds in the entire series.

I have to laugh at miss Harvey stating "players should have esports agents" haha!! get over yourself, yes maybe some of the top end male players who contribute a lot to the game, however not female players who are basically MG2 level. The have 0 marketability!!

impressive that you compare former #1 WTA tennis player to a female cs go player.
2016-03-26 22:46
You can't compare female Tennis with female CS, I just about a tier 4 UK team that beat Secret fe lately, I don't think a top 200 ATP male player can beat Serena Williams, if it happens, then there is another thing, female CS isn't as appealing as female Tennis, if you compare the male's CS:GO highlights to the female, you'll find very big difference unlike in Tennis for example, they actually do entertain you playing Tennis.
2016-03-26 22:48
See this is where you are fundamentally wrong. Another event took place during the 1998 Australian Open between Karsten Braasch and the Williams sisters. Venus and Serena Williams claimed that they could beat any male player ranked outside the world's top 200, so Braasch, then ranked 203rd, challenged them both. Braasch was described by one journalist as "a man whose training regime centered around a pack of cigarettes and more than a couple bottles of ice cold lager." The matches took place on court number 12 in Melbourne Park, after Braasch had finished a round of golf and two beers. He first took on Serena and after leading 5–0, beat her 6–1. Venus then walked on court and again Braasch was victorious, this time winning 6–2. Braasch said afterwards, "500 and above, no chance." He added that he had played like someone ranked 600th in order to keep the game "fun." Braasch said the big difference was that men can chase down shots much easier, and that men put spin on the ball that the women can't handle. The Williams sisters adjusted their claim to beating men outside the top 350. Also what is entertaining is a matter of preference, so please shut up and tell what everyone else should and should not enjoy.
2016-03-26 23:24
Nice telepathy my friend.
2016-03-26 23:39
I admit I was wrong about that one, and surprised too, but the preference, come on, no one would prefer female CS over male CS, because there is NOTHING entertaining about it, their CS level is so low, who would enjoy watching that ? But some would prefer female Tennis over male Tennis.
2016-03-27 00:53
some would prefer female Tennis over male Tennis no one would prefer female CS over male CS You see my point?
2016-03-27 00:57
Ask valve for ingame female models, then female csgo might be more interesting :P
2016-03-27 01:32
was about to reply this and then you did +1 also it's not all about spin and chasing down, muscle composition of men is different to women
2016-03-27 00:57
You know nothing about tennis or about cs. Maybe both. First tennis: " Venus and Serena Williams, aged 17 and 16 respectively, had claimed that they could beat any male player ranked outside the world's top 200, so Braasch, then ranked 203rd, challenged them both. Braasch was described by one journalist as "a man whose training regime centered around a pack of cigarettes and more than a couple bottles of ice cold lager."The matches took place on court number 12 in Melbourne Park, after Braasch had finished a round of golf and two beers. He first took on Serena and after leading 5–0, beat her 6–1. Venus then walked on court and again Braasch was victorious, this time winning 6–2. Braasch said afterwards, "500 and above, no chance." He added that he had played like someone ranked 600th in order to keep the game "fun." Braasch said the big difference was that men can chase down shots much easier, and that men put spin on the ball that the women can't handle. The Williams sisters adjusted their claim to beating men outside the top 350. An 18 year old 4th ranked Serena Williams claimed she could compete with men in professional sport; the US Open champion believing she could take on and beat the best players in the men's game. Nothing ever came to be from this claim." I know they were much younger and bla,bla,bla, but i'm sure that serena still wouldn't be able to beat any male player above 500ATP. Women are just genetically weaker and their physic gives them no chances to compete with men in any sport. Also cs. Men react faster, are smarter and able to communicate better with their teammates. That's all. That's why i think, that these girls are great, cause they beat other opponents, who they can manage to beat. Men level is just unreachable for them. We should respect them, because they also train hard and get very little money for it.
2016-03-26 23:38
It's not about if they are shit or not. Tenniswomen have the right to have their own competition since most girls have a physical disadvantage against men at the beginning (called testosterone). So top women players in physical sports deserve to earn money and respect for beating all the others players in their equal category. Women don't have this disadvantage in Counter Strike, they can and have to compete against men, that's why these female teams don't deserve their sponsors over others male teams. They're weaker in the same category. This is even an unfair privilege given to girls since they only have this money and this opportunity because they're girls, not because they're better than others, which is literally the definition of sexism: considering the value of a person only by his/her gender).
2016-03-26 22:56
+1
2016-03-27 00:26
Yes, because physical sports and sports in general only have to do with muscles... What is even funnier about your argument is what you determine as physical sports. You don't move bodyparts while playing CS? You're talking about a subject without having read any studies or any knowledge on the matter, if you did, then you would know that you're wrong.
2016-03-28 11:53
No studies proved that males have an advantage over girls in video games. Biology and obviousness proved that males have a physical advantage over girls in physical sports. End of the story.
2016-03-28 13:16
No studies proved that males have an advantage over girls in video games. Really? Not one? I have read multiple with that exact result, go figure. Guess you're right then.

Nt feminazi Kappa But nobody is interested in female CS,and their skill level is nothing compared to male pros (comparing them to popular professional sports which has big fanbase on both gender like tennis,basketball,etc) which is why there's so little prizepool
