StarLadder with $10k female tourney

Starladder has announced that it will host a female Counter-Strike tournament with offline finals and $10,000 in prize money.

Just two weeks after the end of the SL i-League Invitational, Starladder has announced its latest Counter-Strike project, a tournament featuring the best female players in Europe, called Female Stars Championship.

The online portion of the tournament will see 16 teams split into two double-elimination brackets - one for CIS teams only and one for teams from other European countries.


juliano's Team Secret will compete in the European bracket 

The top two teams from both brackets will then attend the offline finals, taking place from July 16-17 at the Park Of The 300th Anniversary Of St. Petersburg as part of a festival called VK FEST.

Travel and accommodation expenses will be entirely covered by Starladder, which will provide stream broadcast on Twitch and VK.

Below you can find the list of teams who will be competing in the online stages of the Female Stars Championship:

European Bracket CIS Bracket
Europe Secret fe Russia Team Censored
France Millenium fe Russia EYESPORTS
France LDLC fe Russia Different but equal
Europe doyoueven fe Russia Binary Dragons

Why does csgo have female and male tournaments? Why separate them? Csgo has nothing that would make men or women more better than the other.

They do have them but they usually get eliminated in the qualifiers for the qualifiers for the qualifiers. But this is a female invite tournament to give females the light so they don't get too lost by getting eliminated so fast.

Actually is good for female scene, because its a lot easier than competing against male teams, but the main issue is that male tournaments should allow mixed teams, or both teams, thats how female scene would be equal, i'm sure a "good" team would pick Juliano.
2016-06-05 01:42

it's already the case mate. any female team can enlist in any qualifier/tournament. there are literally zero male only restricted tournaments.
2016-06-05 02:00
but then again those "good" teams probably earn less than for example Juliano at the moment in team secret.

She has a good amount of experience, i can't judge her as a player, since we can't compare with male players because they have better team, but if she would be in a strong team she could show better work.

This is such a wrong perception. "Any tier" is a very broad concept and if you think about it you will understand what you said wrong. Because as long as there are male teams that are not able to win against women, there is always an existing potential that needs to be explored. "Any tier" male team cannot become a top team either, do you have arguments about this? Been in this scene for too long to know how progress of players work, and what is essential in the learning process to become good.

These female teams don't have the desire to win really. They're fine with their exclusive tournaments, team secret just fought against game agents and a few other low tier teams and they got destroyed. They prefer fighting against other female teams. I also highly doubt a male team would take a female team, cause of synergy man.

TS is one of the teams which is focused on growing exactly among male teams. And they will keep playing in female tournaments, as long as there are any, and as long as this is a way for them to attend tournaments.

>Csgo has nothing that would make men or women more better than the other. "nothing"... except for their whole biology ofc. Take a look at some studies on hand eye coordination, fine motor skills, reaction time, visual spatial intelligence, competitive drive etc.

But in other hand, women have peripheral vision and other things i can't remember because i don't have any degree in this area. I saw a guy being global by his own without hands, we only will be able to compare them when we have simillar conditions, it's not simple as that, looking at biological conditions.

Thank you for not including NA female teams. I'm not even being sarcastic. They were complaining earlier why Eu teams were allowed into NA tournaments. This I'll show them and their wannabe female pro scene.

>demands separated tournaments in a game that men have no physical advantage over them. can we stop claiming this bullshit? men absolutely do have a physical advantage in videogames. It's not as pronounced as it is in traditional sports but it's still sufficient enough to create a massive gap.

I'm sorry, in what aspect do men have an advantage over women in cs? I don't see anything in cs that requires any physical ability, unless you consider moving the mouse hard?

hand-eye coordination and reflexes...?
2016-06-05 02:32
anybody can move a mouse like a fucking retard but it takes skill to move it with accuracy and precision of a pro player. It just happens that men are better at those specific skills. Also have faster reaction time, better cognitive skills, better hand eye coordination, men are inherently more competitive, men work better in a team environment etc. These are all things you can look up on google in 2 seconds and verify as facts. And yes aiming is a physical ability you idiot

There is no male tournaments here, there are normal tourneys everyone can qualify for and there are female tournaments. Just like with paraolympics etc. Men have physical advantage over women, I'm not talking about the strength only though. Let's bring something like chess for example, we don't have good females at that and it's not even about reflexes. Which men are still better at.

Man and Woman should compete in E-sports in same league. Mixed in teams together. There is no advantage to being a man or a woman in e-sports. Take for example starcraft 2 Scarlett, she competed vs males! And it was okay. I don't see reason why they can't compete together MAN AND WOMAN, instead of having these two totally different leagues.... Where woman are badly badly underrated.
