Four spots left at GameGune

There are just four spots left at GameGune 2011, which will kick off on Friday in Bilbao, Spain.

The organizers of GameGune have informed us that there are still four spots to be filled in the 24 teams Counter-Strike competition, which will hand out a total of €22,500.

Since our last update, where GameGune confirmed another nine teams, several teams have pulled out. The teams are: paistit, myRevenge.uk, Kaos and Lions. The organizers have however informed us that there are still a few teams looking into attending.

Should there be teams interested in attending GameGune 2011, then send an email to manolo@euskalencounter.org in order to secure your spot.

The Spanish event will take place at Bilbao Exhibition Centre (BEC) from July 22-24, with a total of €22,500 in its prize fund. HLTV.org will furthermore be on-site to bring you all of the action.

nice

Standard UK passport through post = 2 weeks and if you pay about £110 [extra £30/£40] you can go down and collect it same day. Shame. Corbul'o'l'd!

mm but after the changes they got (alex left etc..) they still prefer to participate in the right time and do damage instead of just playing lans without wining/doing good results. Anyway, we will see them in WCG and judge :D Still was a hope from me to see them participating not an information of them taking part to the event, just read carfuly (i wrote a + :D)

are you serious? Stop with those useless negative comments please. Why Gamegune will not be good? Because all the topteams will not be there? That's ridiculous. Stop restricting the cs scene to 10teams. Anyway, you can't say it won't be good when teams like Na'Vi, SK, ESC, M5, eSahara or x6tence attend. Wake up !

I understand, we all like high fights. But cheering for only 10teams will not help cs to stay alive. It's good thing to let the opportunity for other teams to show their level compare it with the best. We love the game, we have to enjoy every events, whatever the teams list, and cheer every guys (teams & sponsors) who currently play cs and contribute to save the game in their countries
