As far as our Dreamteam game is concerned, we said that the transfer market opening hours will depend on the exact schedule. So, having learned the schedule now, and seeing as the groups are not well split over the first two days, we have decided that the transfer market will stay closed until the group stage is finished, meaning it won't open between day one and two. After the group stage it will be opened so you can make changes before the playoffs, as well as at the end of day three.

We are on site in Busan to provide you with full coverage of World Cyber Games 2011. Should you have any questions regarding anything related to the event, then feel free to write it in a comment below and we will do our best to answer them.

YEAH!

How to watch LIVE HLTV ? pleaze write..! My skype henix, : add
2011-12-07 11:17
You click on the match you want to watch here on hltv.org, in the mid-right of the screen. Then you copy-paste the IP into your console in CS. The IPs are usually not published untill 10-15 minutes or so prior to the match. You could also watch streams with commentary, if there is one for the matches you want to watch. The links for the streams are ususally posted by users in the comment area for the match.

2011-12-07 12:04
you have enough money to buy them all and they are in a group with 3 more teams = more games = more money (on papper)

2011-12-07 19:27
this is totally f'd up, lets just face it, the majority of qualified teams will be from europe, so the highest number of spectators will be from europe as well, therefore, why would you ever schedule the match times to be played in the middle of the night in europe, would it really be such a big deal if they postponed the matches by 2-3 hours, since 2am CET is like 9am KST?
