WEM 2010 announced with $69,000

JoongAng Culture Media, the organizers of World e-Sports Masters have announced the 2010 event to take place November 3-7 in Hangzhou with a $69,000 prize purse for Counter-Strike.

Ever since the 2009 edition of World e-Sports Masters ended with fnatic claiming victory, there has not been any news about a 2010 edition, but this ends now, as the 2010 edition of the event is going to take place November 3-7.

WEM will for the third year in a row take place in the Chinese city of Hangzhou and will for the second year in a row take place at the Hangzhou Electronic Science and Technology University. Last year the event had $46,000 for the Counter-Strike competition, but this year the competition will pump out $69,000.


2009 champions from fnatic

The tournament will have eight teams participating, just like the previous years, starting off in a group stage with two groups of four teams, continuing to the playoffs, which will be played in a best-of-one map double-elimination bracket.

There is not a detailed breakdown of the prize distribution or teams participating list announced yet, but the organizers told HLTV.org, that the participants will be revealed next week.

hi can you help me? im looking to know what Zy cfg is on here cscfg.com/ but i dont understand anything :/ or if anyone else know what sens he used and if what mouse also (probaly a MS mouse) I watched lots of Zy demo recently of his days in x7hacker and hacker.gaming, and his awp is monstrous :)
2010-10-14 02:44
yea that is alot of money, but i hate it because it's bo1 double elimination, i mean get with the program already CS should now consist of only Bo3, i would love to see Bo3 double elimination, but it's very time consuming but with only 8 teams it would be amazing if they did this, you would truly find out who's the better team but for that much money B01 double elimination is lame IMO, especially with this much money on the line Asian teams (if four asian teams are mandatory) 1. Tyloo.raw 2. Tyloo 3. WMF 4. wNv Euro/Americas 1. Na`Vi (obviously, best team in the world) 2. Fnatic (second best in the world) 3. coL (amazing team and will soon be top3 imo) 4. FX/SK (both would be great choices, FX is getting back on track, both top5 teams)

2010-10-11 05:58
would like to see savage taking xf's spot at tyloo. he's been pretty unconsistent lately and as far as i know , savage is the best chinese player by far with tb and goodrifle. :]
2010-10-11 13:01
Yeah
2010-10-11 15:02
xf? come on he is good player, for sure better then karl
2010-10-11 18:13
you are wrong , karl's been better than xf in their past tourneys what ive seen , he did also better at wcg so yea.. xf is kinda on/off player
2010-10-11 20:05
xf is amazing imo, if they could get rid of alex (even though i like him and he's a great IGL) and get someone that could frag and be the IGL, like Savage who imo is a top10 player in the world and the best awper and player in China along with GoodRifle, then Tyloo would be un-fucking-real <3 Savage, GL Tyloo.raw
2010-10-13 09:53
I can be sure there are 2 chinese teams invited at least! if one of the EU invited teams cant attend or cant get visa,then there will be a chinese tean replaced! then there will be 3 or 4chinese teams! :D

2010-10-11 13:28
haha not.. if mouz practised they would beat every german team 16-6 at least. trust me br0. but they just dont practise because for they its no problem to reach the EPS finals so they will begin to practise 1 week before finals and however beat all teams easily...
2010-10-11 15:52
Didn't Kapio say this was his last season before he retires because cyx is someone they can't and won't replace?

2010-10-11 11:34
i doubt there will be so much international teams on display as some of you may want. partly because it's in china, it's expensive to go there, and partly because from what i've heard, not many whom have been there actually like the event or at least the city of Hangzhou. last year only half of the attendees were from europe and this year i dont expect it to be more than 5. my guess would be: fnatic Power Gaming Frag eXecutors Na'Vi TyLoo TyLoo.raw WeMade FOX then as the last team either another asian team or EG/mTw or possibly even SK, though i doubt it.
2010-10-11 11:35
last year it was 4 from Asia and 4 from Europe, so I guess it will be sth like fnatic, Na'Vi, mTw, SK/FX/coL + TyLoo, WeMadeFOX, TiTaNs, TyLoo.raw
2010-10-11 11:53
I hope they won't freeze in there, like last year :P
