Arbalet to end Arbalet Cups?

A statement issued by the organizers of Arbalet Cup reads that in the near future we should not expect any more Arbalet Cups.

For a long time, it has been rather quiet from the organizers of Arbalet Cup, with the last international event taking place in Dallas during July. The latest Arbalet Cup took place in Kazakhstan, seeing only domestic teams attend.

Today the organizers of Arbalet Cup released a statement in Russian, stating that we in near future should not expect any Arbalet Cups to take place. The statement reads that the main purpose for Murat "Arbalet" Zhumashevich to fund these tournaments, which has lasted for two years now, was to strengthen and motive the teams of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Zhumashevich wanted to show that a team from this region could cope with the best to produce great results and become champions.


Murat "Arbalet" Zhumashevich and family

The success story became Natus Vincere, a team Zhumashevich decided to support. The Ukrainians in short time conquered the world and is for now counted as the best Counter-Strike team of the world. The statement furthermore states that Zhumashevich will continue to support Natus Vincere, till the end of 2011.

The statement also reads that should Valve release a new version of Counter-Strike, then maybe Arbalet Cup will be back, but for now we are told not to expect more. Arbalet Cup bloomed late 2009 and the competitive scene quickly got to know the Kazakh Counter-Strike enthusiast and his tournament series. Has Arbalet pumped out the last stack of Dollars to a Counter-Strike tournament? Things sadly point us in that direction.


The last Arbalet Cup awards handed out?

The last lines of the statement send out a special thanks to all the news sites that helped covering Arbalet Cup, spreading the word around the world.

:(((( arbalet is best

2010-11-19 18:44
agree for me arbalet cups were just events like eswc and wcg I don't really care if they disappear
2010-11-19 18:46
because they managed tournaments... The more tournaments there are, the more it would motivate players around the world to join. The less tournaments the less active the competitive scene becomes.

don't think so it may be a motivation for the countries Arbalet supported because top teams would come and compete with them but for other "poor" country that can't attend or aren't allowed I don't think it was helpful for them

Besides the sad loss of the Arbalet Cups (there should be at least one big final one with the best teams attending as a way of saying 'Thank You' for this initiative) it will be interesting to see what will happen with Na'Vi after 2011.

Arbalet being their only support, if I am not mistaken, will not make their 2011 that easy having to play to get a good sponsor/organization instead of just focusing on playing/enjoying as for now.

If SK supports them, well probably theyll do just fine, but if it's a weak org they probably will end in bankrupt because top3 teams always have a tight scheduel and want to attend every tournament they can.
2010-11-19 22:04
the worst thing for them is that best e-sport organizations already have good CS team, so imo it will be hard for them to find something stable and with good salary, they should start looking now
2010-11-20 11:18
mmh one tournament dies another one comes to life we still have eswc and who knows , maybe cpl will actually do something edit : i wonder what'll happen to na'vi without Arbalet's support, since they didn't do much these past months

i had a feeling considering there were supposed to be quite a few between dallas and the end of the year and none were announced. Lame by Arbalet, he came up with a whole schedule for arbalet yearly events, and then just doesn't follow through. Oh well, i guess you can't hate him considering he still is supporting Na`Vi and had a few good events. And the fact he built the Kiev Cybersport Arena.

Looks like Na'vi no longer have a reason to deny SK. Former SK will go to MYM. yOu heard it here first.
2010-11-19 19:28
I don't think SK will target Na`Vi again after arbalet leaves them.But then again maybe SK will & the current SK line-up would bring NiP back to life or something like that ;)

Thanks Arbalet for allowing akta! to compete in Arbalet Dallas. It truly was an awesome event.
2010-11-19 21:32
Very sad :( Anyway BIG THX 2 Arbalet for all tournaments!
2010-11-19 21:33
i dont understand, why did they announce a new format etc then? they've only had like 2 tournaments since then while the statement they gave at the time made it sound like they would make arbalet cup grow even bigger and more organized. something must have happened i guess. would be interesting with a long statement (in english) from Murat or someone else deeply involved WHY they so suddenly stopped hosting tournaments when it seemed they were going in the opposite direction.
2010-11-19 21:41
I wish I could give you the manliest handshake you'll ever receive for what you did for the Counter-Strike community. For now I can just thank you for hosting such wonderful events!
2010-11-19 21:43
As he's said, he bring on champions on all biggest tournaments (IEM, ESWC, WCG); so when he do it, why to 'search' for antoher team to win all that's trophies ... but him's Cups, ArbaletCups are very famous 4me and 4all people who watching CS scene ... sad :/ :/
2010-11-19 21:55
this is really sad :s

2010-11-19 22:17
In my opinion these Arbalet Cups were always more charity events than serious business. This was only a matter of time until it stops. Anyway he has done the whole CS scene a great service.

I was hoping that there would be at least one more arbalet even on US soil :( to bad there will not be one. There is no doubt though that Arbalet had a HUGE impact on the scene and it will be missed.

Legend whose name was not just carved in history but whose name made the history.
2010-11-20 01:49
Good. He should have never ventured into esports. I'm reading tons of comments saying he is a legend and made history in esports, all true by the way. However a few months ago there was an article on Cadred about sugar daddies in the esports world that use their own money to fund events, and how we don't need them and this is why. He gave so many people hope for the future, he funded tons of great events using his own money, but now what has that all lead up to? His departure from funding events and recognition of CS as a dying game. Those are the last 2 things any CS player wants to hear, and they been said by the games top contributor.
2010-11-20 02:33
NOOOO =(
2010-11-20 02:35
Listen, this guy is a saint and great guy but really he made zero profits. It is almost impossible to fund these tournaments and make any sort of profit due to the lack of sponsor support for CS. I can't believe he actually went as long as he did and looking back he probably could have saved a ton of money but he did do a lot to help eSports in eastern Europe. This just goes to show you how this game keeps dying because its literally not worth it for any individual or company to invest in tournaments/leagues/etc. its a shame but there will never be a MLG for cs.
